Juicing (fruit & veg)


I have just recently started juicing fruit and veg, now how healthy is this? is too much fruit juice a bad thing? likewise with veg juice or is one better than the other?

    i dont see much harm in it as long as you dont go overboard with it. Could help you reach the 'five a day' portions easier. Variety is the spice of life-try mixing and matching and producing weird and wonderful cocktails-fruit juice+veg juice is 'good' for you-just watch out for the fructose from the fruits

    fruit juice is fine - but remember you will lose some of the vitmains and minerals and most of the fibre from juicing - so don't forgo whole fruit and veg

    Instead of juicing the fruit and veg try putting them in a blender (smoothie maker) with a ilttle water + ice cubes. You will then retain all the fiber and nutrients of the whole food rather than just the juice.

    Just make sure you drink plenty of juice!! I tried juicing for a few months (ended up getting fed up with the endless mess), 3-4 pints of carrot/apple/ginger juice a day used to give me sooo much energy and saved me eating them by the sack...

    Never tried it myself. I personally am a carnivore. I know I need to start eating more fruits and veggies...but I am the kind who craves a steak, or ribs... I made myself hungry :(

    Take the fruit (or veg or whatever)..get close to the juicer. Turn on the juicer. Find the label that says "insert here" and has an arrow under or around it pointing to a hole. Put the fruit (or whatever) in there and use this other little plastic thing to press it down. Hmm..this part gets a bit tricky with words but anyways...as you push it down juice should accumulate in another department or coming out a spout at the side where you have a glass under it catching the juice. Somewhere in the machine you have this filter thing that basically keeps all the main solid stuff.

    So in the end, you have juice in the glass and solid stuff in the filter thing.
