So, after years and years of wanting, I finally got my juicer. I got http://www.powerjuicer.com/order-classic.html.
I love it, love it, love it, love it!
It does exactly what it’s supposed to do and it does it well. I use it once a day to make myself a really big glass of fresh juice.
I’m confused about something though.
I like salad. I eat a lot of salad. But, recently it has become more difficult for me because I have a hard time chewing hard veggies. I don’t want to eat a warm salad. So, I’m drinking my salads now. The benefit is that when I drink it, I have no need or desire for dressing or random toppings so it becomes much much healthier.
But, I eat just as much in my salad as I drink in my juice.
So, why is it that drinking my salad is so much more filling than eating it?
For instance, the juice I had today:
1 bunch of grapes
2 small apples
1 medium tomato
1 small red pepper
I have eaten much much larger salads and was still hungry (and these generally had fattening dressings on them).
After drinking my juice I was incredibly full and have no desire to even go near the kitchen.
What’s the deal?
