Food Poetry

The Nutrition Punk’s Haiku Corner

I got really bored

Wrote nutritional haikus

What am I doing?


Dark, green, leafy food

High nutrient dense mofo

Not just for hipsters


Long, green, high-fiber

Low Calorie water sticks

Colonic tooth brush


Hot black seed water

Highly caffeinated prick

I drank the whole pot


Not very healthy

Bad, good effects.  Moderate.

I am too snobby.

Romaine Lettuce

Vitamin A rich

Beta-carotene eye sight

1-5-0 percent


Rooty veg’table

Also Vitamin A full

Eaten with some Ranch


High glycemic load

I eat bread with sandwiches

Get the whole grain shit



Some are allergic

High protein and healthy fats

Wasabi almonds



Suck my dietetic cock

Linked to C-V-D


Crunchy, sweet, orb things

Variety of uses

Arsenic in core


Underground tubers

High carbohydrate staple

Potassium king

Any more haikus?

Think mine are poorly written?
