I prefer smoothies over juicing. You get the whole fruit/vegetable and all of it's nutrients. When you "juice", you're losing some of the best stuff.

Default Juicing?

A few years ago I had a referral to see a dietician. The only advice that stuck with me from that visit was:
  • Eat a healthy breakfast.
  • Don't drink your calories.
To this day I consider that sage advice.

Juicing removes most of the beneficial portion of the fruits i.e. skin and pulp!!

I asked my nutritionist about juicing just the other day. Instead of juicing she recommends an extractor because it pulverizes the whole food, including the pulp and skin, into a liquid and you get all the nutrients of a wide variety of fruits and vegetables. It will even pulverize all kinds of nuts and seeds like flax and chia seeds so fine it will go through a strainer. Also can add protein powder and stuff like that. She recommended a particular brand to me, but I don't know if I'm allowed to say it here, so if it's a no-no I can just get edited. But she recommended the Nutribullet. I watched the video on it, and read a lot of customer reviews. I asked Santa for one for Christmas.

Hi Katelb
I'm a juicer and what I do is just make a "custom food" and add all the ingredients into it. It's true you don't get the fiber but the micro-nutrients are amazing! If a person eats properly AND juices a time or two a day, they get all the fiber they need plus the extra power-punch from the juice.
