Someone help. I eat like a hipster.

If you were to call me a hipster, I would laugh. I live in Sacramento, work a normal job, shop at target and OH - I'm a mom and I'm pregnant. There is nothing hipster about any of that. Trust me. But according to Huffington Post, I sure do eat like one.

The Huff did a list of the 22 foods that hipsters need to calm down about... and minus the Kombucha, PBR and the Kimchi I love all of them. I kind of feel like the healthy ones (Brussels sprouts, cauliflower and kale) should be left off the list. I mean, with the amount of junk people eat -- I'd say encourage any healthy option you can get them to be obsessed with.

My husband and I have a yummy "green" juice (although as you can see in the picture - the berries make it purple) every morning. Oh, and it has kale in it. Here's the recipe:

Blend together:
1 apple
1 cup of frozen mixed berries (I make sure they include blueberries)
1/2 cup water

Once that is blended, add the veggies:
1 cup kale
1 cup spinach (some times we don't have spinach so I double up on the kale)
juice of 1/2 a lemon

That's it. Its delish - and I guess if you want to eat like a hipster, it covers a few bases.

And also I am reminded that I actually have a Brussels sprouts recipe I am looking forward to trying (It was in an episode of the TV show my work produces "California Bountiful") - Brussels sprouts with citrus and pomegranates.

Any other readers eat like a "hipster" - my guess is a fair amount of you do - which almost makes all of those items mainstream... and anything but hip.
