Okay, with a busy lifestyle, I find it no problem eating fruits - put piece of raw fruit in mouth, eat. Vegetables are another story.
So, I've decided to invest in a VitaMix on the theory that I can throw raw vegetables in the VitaMix, blend and drink. May or may not be the most palatable thing in the world, but at least I'll know I am eating the recommended number of vegetables, which has been a problem for me since I eat out so much and many of the restaurants near my workplace think vegetables are iceberg lettuce and potatoes, and I am really not in the mood after a long workday to come home and chop and steam vegetables.
Anyway, I am considering the professional Vita Mix Vita-Prep 3 Blender, which according to the advertising "has more power to handle the thickest, toughest ingredients! " I basically want it to be a vegetable juicer, as well as a blender. I don't know if I am dreaming and if even with an expensive VitaMix I will need to buy a separate juicer. If possible, I don't want to clutter my kitchen counter.
So can a VitaMix do it all or must I also buy a separate juicer?
