Do you guys do it? And if so? What do you put in it and what machine do you use?
We have one in our cafe, but I never use it, and it's rare to have somebody order a drink made from it.
Not exactly the thread I was expecting.
Juice has like nutrition of 1 fruit and the calories of like 3 fruits
Damn, banned for juicing...
Hope I don't get banned for this...
Why does sending a piece of fruit through a juicer eliminate it's nutritional value? Can the same be said for putting fruit in a blender with a protein shake
Most juicers I've seen strain it as well. Thus removing the fiber and what not.
I thought the exact same thing...
To the topic at hand, I found that if u want juice but dont have a juicer, u can use a blender. Cut up the fruit/vegetables, blend them well, and strain out the chunks and viola. I realize this isnt as good as an actual juicer, but it gets the job done.
I heard the benefit gain was like a trade off: what you lose from the strain, like pulp and such, you get back from nutrients garnered from the husk/rind/peel/outside, that you normally wouldn't eat. This is to say, of course, if you are putting the WHOLE fruit in. A friend of mine has a juicer, and he runs apples, oranges, potatoes, and carrots in his for his "super drink" all damn day. Anyways, that's just what I had heard, don't own one myself.
potatoes? Lol are you sure? Who drinks potato juice! eww.
hahahahaha, I opened this afraid that someone was going to get flamed to no end, but this thread is turning out really funny.
I swear, seen him do it, and I even tried it. After juiced, it's like thick milk or butter-milk. If you put the ingredients in there one at a time, the drink become slayered, with the different colours. I guess it makes it look better than it will taste. I think he might have been just being silly, I am not sure if he still does the potatoes, but he lives by that juicer of his.
Vitamix > juicer.
you do love your Vitamix don't you Urban lol
