Do you like starving yourself, spending exorbitant amounts of money, and drinking algae water? Then juicing might be for you! This week on Let’s Get Real, Erica Wides takes on juicing… no, not the act of taking juice out of a fruit, but the act of exclusively drinking juice for days at a time. Learn why juicing is not only harmful to your body, but to the environment as well. Hear how our bodies have evolved to need solid food (we have teeth for a reason), and why juicing is emblematic of the dilution of New York City culture. Thanks to our sponsor, Cain Vineyard & Winery. Thanks to EULA for today’s music.

“People think that drinking chlorophyll and water is better for you than that whole, fresh bunch of kale!” [11:45]
