Popeye The Sailor was a Vegan!

You might not be old enough to remember Popeye, but he was popular when I was a kid, and it occurred to me this morning that since he only ate spinach, he was one of the first to adopt a plant-based diet!

Popeye was a vegan. Ha! (Shame about the smoking.)



Popeye’s Favourite Smoothie


1 organic bosc pear, peeled and chopped

1 organic kiwi fruit, peeled and sliced

1 tsp. freshly grated organic lemon zest

1/2 cup fresh or frozen, organic spinach

juice of 1/4 of lemon

1 cup organic apple juice

1 cup non-gmo unsweetened soy milk

1 tsp. ground organic ginger

2 or 3 ice cubes


Whiz it up. Pour in a tall glass. Enjoy. ( I had mine with a piece of vegan chocolate cake.  My bad.  Recipe coming soon!)

Here’s Popeye:
