1. THE NUTRIBULLET ,NINJA EXTRACTORS, BLENDTEC AND VITAMIX ARE BLENDERS, K 🙂
I’ve had both of the previous models of the Nutribullet and a Ninja for a few days. I returned it because of the consistency. There is nothing wrong with blending, its all a personal preference. I have a Vitamix for days I don’t feel like juicing and I love it.
Juicing and blending both have wonderful benefits. A blender is a great way to get more fiber into your diet and may keep you fuller than juices would at first. But again it all comes down to personal preference.
I prefer to juice.Juicing gives me an undeniable surge of energy and makes me feel amazing. One common complaint or misconception I should say is juice has no fiber. Juicing does not remove all of the fiber. Plants and veggies have two forms of fiber soluble and insoluble. When you juice it removes the insoluble fiber (the tough fiber and skin) which your body can’t break down and is passed anyways.
Blenders can be a more cost efficient way to start adding greens into your diet, but you can get 3x more veggies into one glass of juice than you can one smoothie. I have two juicers a Breville 5 Speed Fountain and a Norwalk 280 . The Breville is best when I am making quick batches for the day. The Norwalk 280 is pricier but worth it for better tasting juice and you can store up to 5 days.
Another question asked a lot is where do you get protein while juicing,keep in mind many veggies have protein and its not removed during the juicing process. You can always add in chia seeds and hemp hearts though if you feel you need a protein boost.
Will you get the same results with making smoothies as you would with juicing?
There’s no black and white answer for that, every loses weight differently. You’ll get the most results from whatever you will stick to the best. As long as you are consistent the results will come.
What’s the best blender/juicer?
Simply, the one that you will use. I prefer my Norwalk, and when I began I used Dash and Breville. For beginners I recommend the Breville line, they start at $89 and tend to have something that will fit just about everyone’s budget.
Look at reviews on Youtube and Amazon, don’t just go by what I recommend, do your research and make an informed decision.
For blenders, I love my Vitamix, the Nutribullet is another great starter machine and can last you quite some time. Again though, do your research before buying.
Hope that helps!!!
