I had a salad for lunch today. It’s summer, I’m trying to eat lighter meals to counteract the carb-fest of revision. Plus I really like wine (this much I hope is obvious by now) and so I can’t cut calories that way because we all know it’s never going to happen. Oh, and I really like salad. I like vegetables and leaves and all the accoutrements that come with.
The problem is, I ate my salad and then an hour later I needed another one as a snack, and now it’s an hour later than that and I can feel a rumble coming on. It doesn’t matter how many grains I add, or what protein makes it in, I eat a salad and moments later I need more food. Is it psychological? Or is it in fact a massive conspiracy by leafy vegetables to ensure that you eat more of them but are never sated?
Whichever it is, excuse me whilst I pop to the shops for an ice cream, and contemplate whether Toby’s right.
