Vegetable juicing is part of Dr. Fuhrman’s anti-cancer solution but he also recommends it on a daily basis as a great way to get more micro-nutrients. Juice them yourself or head to the local juicer – however you do it, do it!
Now some people recommend that you only do smoothies instead of juicing, but vegetable juicing is a great addition to fasting.
The advantage of smoothies is that they retain all of the fiber from the fruits and vegetables but Dr. Fuhrman has had a guided juice detox before. And, juicing is a great way to add more raw vegetables to your diet. A balanced diet includes both raw and cooked.
Juicing allows us to consume more produce in a single glass than we could easily eat in one meal. But fiber is important so keep your juicing habit to a minimum and be sure to eat large salads as often as you can, as well.
