Iíd rather eat them. I donít care much for the flavor of veg juice or the mess of cleaning up a juicer. Also the fiber is one of the healthiest things about vegetables, as others have pointed out.

The whole food is always better, in my opinion. Juices of any kind are too much concentrated sugar. In my opinion.

When I developed RA I went on a juice fast, primarily vegetable juice all day with a light dinner.

After a week I couldn't stand the smell of the juice, it literally turned my stomach.

I could stand to do a nice glass of juice now like celery, cucumber, watermelon or something.... but it's a lot to clean up for a glass. I will probably sell my juicer.

I eat a LOT of vegetables anyway.

I used to be into juicing and found this site to be very helpful in getting creative and to get nutritional info on any juice i made Browse Juicing Recipes, Get Juicing Calories and Nutrition in Juice, Create Your Own Juice | myPHYTOS,after a while i found juicing was expensive and time comsuming so i now use my nutri bullet to make smoothies rather than clean and prepare a mountain of product to make a juice, my Breville juicer has been collecting dust for a few years now.

I don't juice but my morning shakes have kale and/or spinach, celery, cilantro or parsley, frozen fruit, flax and chia seeds, nori (seaweed sheets), protein powder, coconut oil or peanut butter and some water mixed with almond milk. Sometimes I add cooked beets as well. Cinnamon or turmeric/black pepper, too! I used to put 1/2 c of oats but haven't done that in awhile. Pretty much all but the kitchen sink, haha!

But we also eat fresh salads at lunch with tuna or chicken breast then more fresh veggies at dinner. I had a doctor tell me I needed more fiber, sheesh!
