Is juicing expensive? For some it CAN cost the same. You or someone you love may be in a situation, where they are not taking in ANY vegetables on some days, THEN if an apple, some celery and a couple carrots would have been gladly budgeted in, a small juice can be the perfect solution.
WHENEVER you’d just be taking in what you would have wanted and that would not have otherwise be taken in – it is an extremely skillful choice. THAT IS WHERE THE REAL STRENGTH OF JUICING LIES. It is GREAT for situations where the cabbage just is not getting eaten and you want those nutrients.
At that point you can see how losing pulp isn’t relevant since NOTHING was being eaten before. It adds vital nutrients to your body. Think of the energy used to produce your multivitamin. There is waste in any processing, no denying. It is a waste that so many farmers can’t move all the eatable veggies they can grow. Its tragic that people are dying from addictions to less skillful habits.
Is juicing expensive? It can be. Were you going to have mostly oatmeal otherwise? Then yes of course it is more expensive. Your actual cost depends on if you have a garden or an insurance-refunded CSA (Community supported agriculture plan), or other access to large amounts of vegetables on the cheap.
Many of us can find a way to the golden opportunity of filling up on juice while passing on cheaper cooked foods like rice, etc. For me, it is not like I just drank of glass of water now where’s dinner. It is like wow I am deeply, refreshingly full and not hungry now.
Get vegetables in your life HOWEVER it works for you. They will change your life. Living on them will set you dietarily and bodily free.
