I don't have a juicer, and when I used my parents I was appalled by how much of the vegetable got wasted! I've been buying naked juices -- green machine, blue machine, etc., and using whole fruits and veggies to make smoothies instead of juices.
Is there a big difference in the kind of nutrition? Is the store-bought juice and smoothies going to give me the same benefits?

Man often becomes what he believes himself to be. If I keep on saying to myself that I cannot do a certain thing, it is possible that I may end by really becoming incapable of doing it. On the contrary, if I have the belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it even if I may not have it at the beginning.
Juicing is good for us!! I need to do it more, I just hate the mess and the time. I'd rather just eat a salad!! LOL. But I agree, juicing is a great way to get a lot of nutrition down when you really need it. And it's a tasty way to get those dark leafy greens down when you mix them with some sweeter things like carrots & beets.
Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it's a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they're terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul
Just tried carrot, ginseng, apple juice for nausea related to my vertigo and it helped! I posted pics of it on my blog (link below). I am loving this book called Juicing for Life that has juices for all types of ailments! The author actually went to a local college here. Anyways, just wondering if anyone else had some good juice recipes they like? I just made a beet one today too.
