    Juicing Vegetables

    Hi there!
    We're not entirely new to primal living (we've been eating paleo for a little while now). I am interested to know about juicing vegetables and I know that you don't recommend it for fruits. Between being full-time in school online, two children and my husbands crazy schedule in the Marines, rarely is there time for me. I want to know if I can get more vegetables in by juicing them (if that's ok). Thanks for any help on this topic, I appreciate it!

    Juicing vegetables is a good way to get a concentrated dose of polyunsaturated fat

    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!

    Most vegetables are very low in fat (other than olives/avocados) so you'd have to juice A LOT of them to get a significant amount of any kind of fat.

    Derpamix espouses the views of Ray Peat who is extremely anti-PUFA from what I have read. Like never eat fatty fish, chicken, nuts, avocado, or anything else that has a significant amount of any kind of PUFA, even omega-3. Most other people (like Mark Sisson) promote a more moderate approach.

    If you really want the molecular structure/chemical process stuff you can check out Ray Peat's site and decide for yourself if he is a genius or a madman :-)

    So it is ok? The reason I was asking is if I need to be concerned about losing nutritional value from the skins while juicing. Thanks for the info! :-)

    Nah it's not ok. It's far better to throughly cook all cruciferous vegetables. Also, fruit juice is anti-inflammatory and very good for you. You have it kinda backwards.

    Oh ok. Well I was reading that primal blueprint and in it it says that juicing fruits isn't ok because you lose nutritional value from the skins but nothing was said about veggies. Thanks :-)

    No juicing of vegetables here, I prefer “souping” instead for not losing fibers and other nutrients…
