Good question, stephaniedas. I do still eat fruits and vegetables as well, though! That remains important. I have been very ill for many years with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (you can read more about this in my profile). I often struggle to swallow solid food. While looking for other ways to get my daily quota of nutrients, I discovered juicing. For someone who is ill and may not always feel like eating, it is a really easy way to get enough vitamins, minerals and enzymes down. No heavy-duty chewing required!
In a sense the juice is almost like intravenous feeding for my body! It can be taken up immediately without a complicated digestive process being involved. So, for me in my circumstances, that saves energy.
Another huge benefit is that all the nutrients that normally remain trapped in the fiber of the produce, is extracted and made available to my body. That not only spells health benefits, but also gives me better value for money.
It would also take me ages to prepare and eat all the veggies I can quickly run through the juicer. In the end I am getting more in terms of quantity and variety.
Lastly, I simply love juice! I love the taste, love experimenting with different combinations and I always feel so GOOD after having a glass of juice!
