So, my mom goes shopping a while back and gets a Super Juicer (of some sort)! Buy one, get one free! Now, I have one (hey, free is free!). I go on a juicing spree, apples, oranges, grapes, broccoli, sweet potatoes, carrots, you name it, I tasted it. I'm having a great time! A few weeks pass, and I even notice I'm losing a little weight (no, that's a GOOD things, in my case! :D)!
So I get all excited, and while looking up nutritional values, I find all these articles comparing Juice to the actual Fruit. Most of them just talk about how much you're missing out by not getting fiber, which in my case, I'm not too worried about, but they don't say much about the benefits of juice. :/ So, I thought I'd ask yall about your thoughts on the matter. Any other CDers out there getting their juice on?
btw: beneficial or not, this is the first time I've been able to have orange juice since the 90's without it tearing up my stomach, so if only for that, the juicer is getting a permanent spot in the cupboards!! >^.^<
