      The white plastic bin under the sink that gets picked up by people in a garbage truck once a week.

        Removing the fibre by juicing is excellent way to take in nutrients without drama ...for those who do not want digestion drama !

        I didn't find juicing anti-inflammatory, in fact I get joint ache every time I introduce fruit, whether juiced or not.

          But isn't we need fiber in our body? and we can still juice without removing the fiber.

            You don't like wheat grass? they say it detoxifies our body and boost cell reproduction.

              I think you can juice fruits and vegetables without losing its nutrients, just learn what juicer to use and how to do it.

                You try juicing veggies! use slow juicer so you would get the nutrients intact. its nutritious works wonders in dieting people like me!

                  Juicing is very healthy to our body. I usually juice apple, beets, spinach, collard greens, carrots, cilantro and lime for breakfast. It makes me feel great and is a wonderful boost to the system. In the first week of juicing, I found that it made me sick. I read that it is like that because it takes a minute for the body to adjust as toxins are expelled from the body. I also lost a lot of weight with just juicing alone. Of course, vegetables and fruits are an important part of a healthy diet as they are rich in vitamins, mineral and antioxidants. Try juicing!

                    agree with you! have you tried juicing mix of fruits and veggies? or you juice separately the fruits and veggies?

                      It is pretty funny to have a thread about electric juicers on the PRIMAL/PALEO forum.

                      Isn't a juice of apple, beets, carrots full of sugar and what would happen if you simply ate those and other plants in their non-juiced state? Do you feel better or worse or is it simply not possible?

                      I know people who swear by juicing but they also swear by dinners that come frozen in a box and an excess of cocktails. I have done smoothies (lots of sugar) but never juicing. I do try and keep an open mind though and I do have both a blender and an immersion blender.

                        I don't think juicing is bad but I think a better way to get extra veggies into your daily diet is in soups (bone broth an extra plus) and in cultured veggies. Both easy to make and cheaper than juicing.
                        If you do juice, focus on greens and other veggies, maybe a Granny Smith apple for sweetness if needed at first but soon carrots will be all the sweet you need.

                          THX. I tried making some bone broth with large beef knuckles. I did not roast them long enough so the broth is a little darker than chicken soup but not as deep a brown as beef broth. I removed the bones, placed the pot into the frig and then skimmed the layer of white fat off the top.

                          The 'broth' underneath is like a beige jello. When heated it becomes a very rich (fatty) liquid that tastes more like water + fat. I think I am doing something wrong with that. Maybe I need the long bones instead. I am partial to beef, not such a big fan of chicken.

                          I used to make a pasta sauce with minced carrots and zucchini along with tomatoes. The carrots made the sauce very sweet. I will try that with ground beef. Chili without beans but with plenty of veggies.

                            I think the best is to load up a good high speed blender and make smoothies with spinach, some fresh or frozen berries(think ice cream) and some pure water. Gives all nutrients and fiber as well.

                              I have been juicing vegetables for lunch for the past 6 months. It is all I need to get me from breakfast for dinner. Romaine, kale, cilantro, parsley, cucumbers, celery, peppers, ginger, lemon, apple, carrot, chickory, spinach, dandelion, I could go on and on.

                              As long as you use 80-85% green vegetable vs 15-20% fruit/root vegetable, you should have no major insulin issues.

                                Can anyone expand on this? I'm very interested. Any and all overly detailed explanations including molecular structure/chemical processes etc. that I most likely will not understand (but would like to) are welcome!
