    Frozen vegetables for juicing?

    Ok, so I'm really trying to up my vegetable intake. I really don't like cooked vegetables and actually love them raw. But my jaw starts to hurt eating the amount that I want to. Would frozen vegetables be an acceptable substitute for juicing as means to get my vegetables for the day?

    You have to defrost them first of course or else some of the juice will be frozen while juicing, it won't make it to your cup.

    Juicing is not as healthy as you might think. When you juice carrots or apple, for example, you're separating the fiber from the juice. The end product is high in sugar. It's like drinking orange juice compared to eating an orange.

    The most convenient and less expensive way is to buy a 2 lbs jug of Now Foods Barley powder. It taste like sh*t but 1 tablespoon of it equals to one serving of leafy vegetables.

    To me, juice is much like soda with a vitamin pill.

    I'm being a bit facetious, but you have to ask yourself if you really want to consume a relatively high calorie, carb loaded beverage that doesn't even have much fiber. And if you believe that juice is very healthy, then you probably believe fiber is too.

    More directly to your question, after thawing frozen vegetables, I'm sure you can juice them. The yield might be lower as they may have partly dehydrated or the yield might be higher if they absorbed ambiant fluids. But either way, I'm sure you'll live.

    After all, you survived your marinating issue ;-)

    Sorry, I didn't mean to say that I was using a juicing machine. I intend on using a simple kitchen blender. I figure just blending it down to a juice still keeps the same nutrients. Also, I'm a vegetable fiend, and tend not to be huge on carbs. Don't get me wrong, I love pasta and rice, but have a hard time getting myself to eat them everyday like I used to. But this isn't something I will be doing on a daily basis, probably just weekly. I once made a large pitcher of veggie juice (via blending) and found I had a hard time finishing it by the time it went bad. So I'm thinking smaller scale and less frequent.

    And yes, the overmarinated steak was fantastic.

    In this case, correlation does equal causation ;-)
