    I don't think my stomach would tolerate juice everyday either.

    I love beetroot roasted ( I cook in tin foil in the oven, quarter or half them and sprinkle bit of salt over them) then eat with sour cream and chives !! Yum :)

    Same for me. I find juiced vegetables and fruits to be pretty sickening, no matter what's in it. It seems too sweet somehow, but in an "off" way. Definitely way too dense.

    I've finally plucked up the courage to include raw onion, having read your post, and you're right, it's actually quite pleasant! I had onion, celery, broccoli, cucumber, spinach, kale, parsley, ginger, apple, pear, strawberry, lemon and kiwi (13 things!). Maybe a bit heavier on the fruit than you're supposed to be (I've read to aim for 80/20 veg/fruit) but I must certainly be getting some nutrition down my neck. You're right - the lemon juice makes it refreshing and as long as there's a handful of each thing, no one thing dominates.
