    I prefer smoothies to juicing. However, 'leafy greens' are about the only vegetable I've put in a smoothie.
    Stumbled into Primal due to food allergies, and subsequent elimination of non-primal foods.

    Start Primal: March 2013, start weight 150lbs, Ladies size 6
    Current: 132lbs, Ladies size 2
    F/23/5'9"

    26lbs lost since cutting the crap.

        Smoothies are definitely better, skins and all so you get the full benefit of the fruit. I do 3 cups spinach, romaine lettuce, celery, an apple, half a banana and the juice of 1 lemon. Very energizing! I killed my Magic Bullet Blender doing this for afew months so I invested in a Vitamix. You can make soup and even icecream in it so the kids have been having fun with it too.

          i've always thought that juicing seemed a bit odd, i mean you're throwing away good nutrients there.

                If you have a high speed blender you can pop the whole veggie (unpeeled, unpipped etc) in with water and blitz - this way it is drinkable but still contains all the natural fibre, macro and micro nutrients. You can do the same with fruit too although mind you, citrus you will need to remove the skin LOL.

                          Juicing fruit removes the fiber, this means you'll be able to consume far more of it in juice form than you're able to as a whole fruit. It also means you're drinking sugar water and lots of it. Too much sugar is bad and makes people fat. Why not just eat the fruit and get all the nutritional benefit? Smoothies are just as bad.

                          Eat vegetables whole, if that's not an option make soup. But as soon as you start cooking veg, it loses nutritional value.

                            I think you should do what works for you. If you want to just supplement (as you said) it cannot hurt to juice some veggies to get an extra boost. However, I would stick to maybe 2-3 times a week only -- one of the ideas expressed in the PB is that some days our ancestors had more to eat than others. So maybe by fluctuating your intake you can mimic this aspect.

                            But honestly, simply do it and monitor how your body responds to it. Only then can you tell if it is good or bad for YOU.

                              Juicing is healthy but do it right, don't over blend it and to give a twist in eating fruits and veggies. juicing veggies is okay especially to those who doesn't want to eat vegetables as a part of their meal as much as others do. Try juicing cabbage or broccoli...

                              I wanna ask others also what brand of juicer they can recommend cause i have an old one and its not that high end it has limited function. i want to juice wheat grass this time...
