Juicing anyone?

I recently talked to a dietician who told me I need to eat more vegetables.  So I started juicing for an afternoon snack.  My grandma is the big juicer in our family.  I like carrot, cucumber, apple and beet juice.

I really want to get a juicer. DH just ordered one of those margaritaville blenders though so looks like I'll have to wait a bit to get my juicer.

I have not tried juicing before....I bet it's probably good during these summer months too.  I want to get a blender so I can do more blended drinks for this summer....

 I use the blender or food processor to make juice drinks and smoothies  because from what I've seen, most juicers eliminate the fiber, and that one of the big benefits of fruits and veggies. I want to keep the fiber. What did the dietician say about juicing?

Never thought about it before, but I love juices  as well LOL.  I have never juiced before, but I usually get the store-bougth stuff LOL.  I'm so terrible
