Green juice is like a supplement.
Green Smoothie is a meal.

David wolfe likes to add lots of things into his smoothie, like maca, bee pollen, marine phytoplankton, etc.. and it just goes better with a smoothie then with a juice.

Both are great, do both each day! :)

I would like a further explanation on fiber in juices.
Paul Nison was explaining it a while back and was never clear on what he ment.
Then I heard Ani Phyo explain it also. What I gathered from her info was to much fiber is not good for us?
This is a good round table discussion.
Would like to hear opinions on this from many different people.
The last few days I started straining my juice just to see if it felt different. Me personally I notice the effects.

Angela - juicing agrees with you. You are radiating and look fantastic.

fiber - you guys didnt answer the question...specifically re a 92-day juice feast. i'm curious too.

David Wolfe - ive heard him talk about it, and basically he loves juices but if you're gonna do something awesome for your body and you're lazy, do a smoothie instead of nothing at all - he said he hates cleaning juicers.

the juice tastes awesome, it's renewed my love for carrot juice (ive avoided it for years) but it tastes nothing like my cacao almond mylk :)

PS i just wanted to say i LOVE how you Matt and Angela CHEW your beverages. mimicking you in this regard has changed my life! (my digestion).

Alrighty, I'm off to juice my two big heads of Romaine!!!

Eric and Carolina said...

You used to use a VitaMix but now have a Blentec, which do you prefer better?
Great green juice recipe!

Kristen's Raw said...

It was yummy. I added all kinds of other things, but the two huge heads of romaine I had were awesome in it. :)

Neely said...

I was very inspired to try your juice recipe. It sounds yum, but was wondering about the CoffeeMate on the counter. Seems like that would have been tossed out long ago?

Geraldine said...

Is it a Blendtec or Ktec blender they are referring to? or are they both the same thing?
