You may or may not know that I hate vegetables with the fire of 10,000 suns. I don’t consume any form of raw leafy greens through actual chewing and eating of food unless it is drowning in Caesar dressing and has a 2:1 Parmesan to leaf ratio. Raw leafy greens suck ass. I don’t trust anyone that says they like them. I refuse to eat them in full leaf form. It takes 20 minutes to chew the amount that I can drink in 2 seconds in liquid form. I would take 2 seconds of torture over 20 minutes anytime. Eating raw leafy greens is number 3 on my list of torture methods that would make me crack only behind waterboarding at number 2 and waterboarding with liquified raw vegetables at number 1. If you can eat raw leafy greens then good for you, that’s extremely healthy but I have to question your sanity. I was hanging with my college friends this weekend and one of them ate an entire 1lb package of greens in a day. Plain. With nothing on it. Nothing has ever infuriated me more.
It may be worth your time to try out one of these shakes. We shouldn’t avoid leafy greens because of how nutrient dense they are but I get it if you can’t eat them. I usually put broccoli sprouts in as well but I didn’t have any this time. Practice your chugging skills and you can drastically lessen uncomfortability.
