Sorry if this is in the wrong section. I was looking for information on blending, and come across a video blending vs juicing: which is better. Its goes on about how we can't digest fibre well enough so should limit are intake to a degree and juice vegetables and blend fruits, stating that we should do both. Then I click on another video, which pretty much completly slates blending, stating that it destroys all the nutrients, then says we should only juice. As we don't need that much fibre, just minerals and nutrients, which a juicer gives enough of. So now i'm hella confused. I thought we was meant to have a diet high in fibre to help protect against bowel cancer and to help with our bowels. Whats the deal? is it some sort of conspiracy theory
To be honest I really don't get this, 'cos a few years ago I read the same thing about juicing, due to the fact that it discards everything but the juice, which doesn't provide sufficient vitamins.
I was gonna buy a Blendtec or vita-mix, now i'm not so sure. Should I buy a juicer?
Hopefully I made some sense, I thought I was taking a step in the right direction to being healthy, as i'm a fussy bugger aswell. Anyone who can shed some light on this by any chance.
