vegetable or fruit first? thanks

hi all,

wondering about your thoughts on which might be better...
first thing in the morning... to juice vegetables or make a fruit/superfood smoothie?

i'm thinking about doing one, waiting an hour or so and then the other.

I'm not an expert but from what research I've done (reading raw food info online ) I think it's best to have fruit first. Some people go as far to have fruit only for the first half of the day. I think that fruit digests faster so it's better to have first, if you have it after something else I've heard that it is harder on digestion. They also say you shouldn't combine fruit with fats. As I said I'm no expert though!!

Juice will be even faster to digest as it is liquid with no fibre. I don't think either way will be a problem though as vegetables combine with fruits. If you struggle with digestion don't mix fruit and fat. Make sure you have enough fruit to feel satisfied.
