Anyone here do any juicing?
Whether you juice for weight loss or just juice for health, it is a great way to get a LOT of antioxidants and nutrients into a relatively small glass of liquid.
Some people have high speed juicers and some (like myself) use a "twin gear" or masticating juicer. Whichever you choose will depend a lot on how much money you have to spend. You could also just use a blender.
Using a blender would leave all of the fibre in your juice. You may want this, or you may not. But, if you remove all of the fibre from your juice, the benefits and nutrients of the juice are actually much better absorbed by the body. This may depend on your objective for drinking the juice.
When my father had cancer he removed every trace of fibre. The fibre was getting in the way of his cancerous body absorbing the mega doses of vitamins his body needed to heal itself of pancreatic cancer.
But, maybe you enjoy a glass of carrot/tomaot juice everymorning, you are already healthy and like to get a bit of extra fibre. That is fine too. Extra raw veggies and fruits are great no matter what form they are in.
So, do you juice? Do you have a juicer? What are your favorite fuit/veggie combinations?
I like juicing. I have a Greenstar Juicer. I have tried all types of combos... My "go to" combo is carrots with apples.
Also, if you throw in some blackberries it sort of takes over the taste. I also discovered that I really don't care for celery in my juice, although it has great cleansing properties.
