I’ve never lied to you and I won’t start now, as a matter of fact I think I’ve mentioned this before, I DON’T LIKE VEGETABLES.  Oh, I’ll eat a raw carrot, raw and cooked potatoes (don’t get on me about the dangers of raw potatos), raw cabbage.  I’ll even eat raw mushrooms, raw peas (if they’re in a salad) and raw turnips.  I love cooked whole kernel corn but if it’s green and cooked you can forget it.

My mom use to buy V8 juice hoping I’d get my vegetables that way but it tasted too much like tomato juice and that I don’t like.  One time when I was younger I thought I could make carrot juice by throwing a few in the blender and letting it go to town on them.  My mistake, I had nothing but a carrot mess. If you cant decided what blender to get check out these vitamix vs ninja reviews.

Lately I’ve been hearing a lot about juicing and it’s gotten me to thinking.  If I could add more fruit to the mix or a fruit with good flavor that would overpower the vegetables I might be able to drink my vegetables and get more vitamins and health benefits from them than I would if they were cooked and disguised in cheese (yes, I have eaten cauliflower with a bunch of cheese sauce and it wasn’t that bad).

I don’t think I juicing could replace a meal for me because I like to chew.  I know it’s weird but if I don’t actually chew anything I don’t feel I’ve eaten a meal.

I’m interested in hearing what you think. Do you juice and does it taste like the veggies you put in there or would this be something I could tolerate?
