Juicing fruit and vegetables is a great and tasty way to get those all essential vitamins and nutrients. But the traditional methods of juicing takes away one important nutrient that can make all the difference that makes this tasty beverage even more nutritious. All the juice bars I have ever come across take out this important substance which prevents sugar spikes.
Instead I went with a blender on steroids, Vitamix. Just to be clear for those who know about “affiliate links”, there are none. I am not making anything for mentioning the name.
I chose a blender because it includes the whole fruit or vegetable I am adding, not just the juice. When I started out I visited a number of retail juicers and smoothie stores, because I was undecided which way to go AND I wanted to see what I could actually “stick to” before I invested in equipment.
As I watched my drink be prepared in the juicing establishments. I could not help but notice the “pulp” being discarded and I immediately translated that to “fiber”. All the benefits of fiber came flooding into my head and it did not take long for me to drift to the “blending” side.
