    So buying a juicer to get more vegtables in my diet and eat cleaner, but feel bad wasting all that fiber and pulp. I know that they say you can throw it in baked goods, but i dont plan on baking muffins or anything like that. Any other ideas on how to use that pulp/fibre in a healthy and easy way ? thx

    Just buy this instead. No pulp, no mess, no washing up.

    Ton of sodium.

    Put lemon juice on it and maybe some balsamic vinegar and olive oil and eat it like a salad. Though it's pretty amazing in baked goods. I've made lots of veggie bread loaves with it.

    stick it up your bum. It'll absorb nutrients through the rectal wall.

    or make homemade ice cream with it. but only if you can't fit anymore up your bum.

    Yeah, but that's been heated, so all the living enzymes have been killed. Not the same as raw juice.

    I just toss mine in the yard or on my plants and trees. I also pack it around the base of my bonsai. It creates a moist layer that keeps the plant from drying out and as it decomposes it fertilizes the tree.

    If you're a gardener, you can add it to your compost pile.

    MuchMoreThanMuscle saidYou should be eating the pulp, that's where all the fiber and many of the nutrients are.

    When you juice vegetables and fruits you are mainly eating only the sugars. But when you keep the fiber intact the sugars are not released into the bloodstream as fast. Faster sugar into the bloodstream equates to an insulin spike and ultimately fat deposit.

    The Vitamixer, which incorporates the pulp is the only juicer that is approved by the American Diabetes Association (ADA) according to them several years ago.

    I agree with you completely. I have both a Norwalk Juicer and a Vitamix blender. There are a lot of articles about juicing versus blending and if you google that phrase, you can spend all day reading the articles. This one gives the benefits of both:

    My opinion is the advantages of fiber are significant, so I go with blending. There are specific cases where a nutrition regimen calls for juicing:

    MuchMoreThanMuscle saidThat Gerson Therapy looks interesting. I'm going to read up on it. Thanks for posting that.

    You're welcome. It is quite interesting. For the Gerson program, a juicer is essential, and only certain types, and a blender is not an acceptable substitute. I haven't researched, but my sense is that therapy might be too much nutrient concentrations for everyday use, not following a therapeutic program. I'm thinking that some combination of juicing and blending would be optimal for most people, such as 1 glass per day of juice, or maybe 1 day of juicing for every x days of blending.
