Not really. Blending and juicing are completely different. For example, I can't sit down and eat 5 carrots, a beat, 3 stalks of celery, and 3-4 cups of spinach at a sitting. Even if I could, I wouldn't want to. If I threw it all in a blender, sure, that would be a lot of food. More food than I can eat and it would have a terrible texture. But, conversely, I can juice it, get most of the nutrients out of it, and throw away the roughage that has little nutritional value. The best part is that you also get the soluble fiber out of the produce, you just throw out the insoluble part.
Basically, if you want a meal replacement, by all means blend. It's super healthy and it fills you up easily. One of the best things you can do to lose weight. If you want to supercharge your body with nutrients, get a juicer. I have both an Omega juicer and a Blendtec blender on my counter and they're both very different machines with very different purposes. I would actually argue that my Omega juicer is more versatile than my Blendtec, but it all depends on what you want to do.

|ThackeryBinks||Purchased this Juicer from a pre-Christmas deal at Macy's. It is a very nice juicer, decent juice yield and absolutely no froth or foam which is amazing. I value it over my champion It yields much juice from greens which was a surprise for me|

|stugots344||Juicing and Blending are totally different. I have a Blendtec and a juicer and they each have there place on my counter. The main difference is that the juicer extracts the pulp which is the fiber. By doing this your digestive system does not need to digest the drink, but just absorb it....instantly. It's much like a blood transfusion. The blender basically just chews the food up for you, but you must still go through the digestive process.|

That is some badass recipe, own invention?! Nice lol
I think if one can afford it, the best option is to have both a blender and a juicer and mix and match breakfast/shakes/juices

Don't mean to derail this thread but I was in the market recently for a juicer (lost 20 lbs since Dec and wanted to introduce juicing to my daily diet).
I ended up getting the "NutriBullet" juicer from Bed, Bath and Beyond for $79.99 (use their 20% coupon to knock off $20 off the $99.99 price).
I've been using that daily now for a week and so far, it actually works just like advertised!!! I find Kale leaves take a little longer to break down but spinach leaves are easy, pisy. As long as you don't overfill the somewhat small cup, there's no leakage. Plus BBB has 1 yr free exchange in store (with receipt) so no need for any extended warranty.
I've also gotten my toddlers to enjoy fresh fruit smoothies from the Bullet (half green apple, half orange, some strawberries, low fat greek yogurt and 4 oz filtered water).
Best thing is it's just a blender so no messy cleanup since there's no after-product to discard like typical juicers.
This is my breakfast 5 days a week and I've been loving it. The taste is somewhat odd (still can taste raw vegies..lol) but I'm used to it now.
- Kale leaves
- 1 scoop Whey Protein
- Half cucumber
- Flax seed
- 1 cup cold water
- slices of pineapple (this offsets the sour kale taste)
- half green apple
- 1 scoop green tea powder (I've stopped drinking coffee now)
Posting this as if you like me, you'd think twice before spending $2XX+ on something that you might not use daily (my wife tried my juicer recipe and hates it so she stuck to her cereal breakfast so I guess juicing might not be for everybody...well...depends on how health conscious one is)

30% + 10% is not the same as 40%.
The 40% off price is still better.
