How Do You Feel About Vegetable Juices?

Recently, I watched a colleague of mine slowly down a large glass of beet, carrot, and celery juice in attempts to atone for a weekend of indulgences. With the grimace that accompanied every sip, you could imagine the inner monologue: "This is healthy. This is healthy. This is healthy." Although I have learned to love carrot juice, I much prefer to actually eat beets and celery. I have tried many veggie juices and am not really a fan. What about you?

I juice all of my own vegetables and fruit because there is no way that I would eat 5 vegetables and 4 fruits in a day, everyday. So, I juice them with the skin and all. It tastes great and it's fresh with no sodium.

I really like vegetable juices, but the bottled ones can be pretty high in sodium. They are good for you in that they are high in nutrients etc. but really I think people are better off eating fresh vegetables as you get all the extra nutrients and fibre from the skin and flesh of the vegetable. If you've ever made your own vegetable juice with a juicer, or been to a juice bar where they advertise for people to take their leftovers for their compost or worm farm, you'll realize that there is also a lot of wastage involved in juice making! So many vegetables go in for so little juice!

everyone makes fun of me since i say that i'm afraid of juice that i can't see through and that would include veggie juices. i know that they are good for me, yet i can't bring myself to drink them.

I have about two glasses of vegetable juices every day! Sometimes I'm on the run and I don't have enough time to eat my huge plate of veggies so I just dump them in the blender hehe :)

I don't mind the V8 fruit and vegie juices but I can't stomach vegie juice by itself. I don't care if its healthy...it needs to taste good too!

I refuse to go near carrot juice. When I was in 5th grade, my parents took me to Sudan to visit friends. We spent a day at the nile and all we had to drink was carrot orange juice which tasted completely vile. Now, we were in the Sahara desert in the middle of spring, so desperate times called for desperate measures and I spent the whole day drinking carrot orange juice in order to stay hydrated. Needless to say, I haven't touched carrot juice ever since. My sister in law makes it and just the smell makes me gag.

My mom gave me V8 as a kid and I didn't like it. Of course, that was before all these new "fusions" and "fruit/veggie" juices were popular and stuff, but I've never gotten myself to give it a second try.

I only like them if they're mixed with fruit juices... V8 has some really good ones.

I don't get the point of vegetable juices. They taste about 10 times worse than the vegetables do plain and don't have as much fiber in them, either. I'd much rather eat my veggies and get the satisfaction of crunching on them instead of just drinking them. So yeah, I'm not a huge fan of vegetable juices.

i make spinach, celery and cucumber juice. me and my boyfriend call it "green slime" and we drink it on the weekends with breakfast. if you aren't expecting it to be sweet and think of it more like a cold soup it's fine. very refreshing even.

Veggie juice combined with fruit juice are some of the yummiest things out there.

Depends on the mixture. I like carrot juice, hate celery. However if blended correctly, I can down celery juice. I mush prefer fruit and vegetable juice combos. Apple & Carrot is my favorite.

I'm not a huge fan, but I do drink a V8 with lunch everyday to fill me up.

I like carrot and green juice. I give my kids green juice as a way of getting veggies in to them.

My husband has high cholesterol problem about 2 years ago. Some of my friends introduce a drink to us known as "5 Greens" - it is made up of 5 different type of Green vegetables/fruits. 2 Celery 1/2 Green Bell Pepper 1/4 Cucumber 1/4 Bitter Melon 1 Green Apple He drink it every morning and his cholesterol reduce a lot. Website below will show you how the juice look like - I know it is not too appealing, but it actually taste pretty good. BTW, I think the juice in the picture is from Juice-extractor, we did ours from juicer and we drink all the fiber along also. http://www2.flickr.com/photos/smalldapan/337014135/

I'm just not convinced they're better than eating the actual veggies - so why bother?

Mmmm carrot juice. I think I'd like beet juice too, but I've never had it. A local smoothie place makes ABC smoothies - apples, beets and carrots. My friend says its amazing. Sounds yummy to me!

are carrots not vegetables? If vegetables can't juice? I like a mix of carrots and apples, Yum. I was at the store a couple of weeks ago and bought a V8 pomegranate and blueberry juice and it was DELICIOUS. But, I doubt I'd buy it again. :shrug:
