    Juicing fruit and veggies






    Yeah, so I know that I am lacking enough fruit and veggies in my diet, so I bought a nice juicer today. I bought some of almost every major vegetable, and a few pieces of fruit.

    My roommate said that I would never be able to drink that nasty ass veggie juice, so just to make a point, I mixed together the nastiest stuff I could think of.

    I made about 20oz of juice made from 2 heads of broccoli with stalk, 2 carrots, and 1 whole tomato. The stuff was pretty nasty, but I handled it pretty good.

    I guess my question is can I get away with drinking 20-40oz of veggie juice a day without eating vegetables. They are terribly inconvenient. I also bought cabbage, baby spinach, celery, Apples, and blueberries.

    The only problem with juicers is that it strip the fiber and many of the nutrients. I hate those juicers for that reason. That's why I got a vitamixer. You still have all your nutrients and fiber because it mulches it all up.

    You can do that but you need to make sure you still take some antioxidants, greens powder and fiber.

    So basically what she is saying is that you failed. It was not disgusting enough.

    Make it more disgusting tasting and get back to us on that chief.

    No. Just don't juice all your vegetables. Drinking raw vegetables is a good thing.

    Not really. You can always buy a greens power and fiber and add it to your juice when its done. Or as Bakerboy said, eat some veggies too

    Greens + makes a good greens that has the fiber included. Make your juice and then add some of that powder in and you will be good to go.
