    I read this comment somewhere “Try blending your plants to make a smoothy. This way you break open their protective pockets to get to the nutrients. We don’t chew our food well enough to break open the pockets of the plants, thus we don’t get the full nutrients”

    I keep reading here about ‘chewing food well’.. would this then, putting the vegetables in a blender be much better?

    Yes, or a juicer.

    It is a good way of eating raw veggies. Cooking breaks down their fibre, enzymes, antioxidants and other nutrients. I tried one once but it was pretty horrible. Maybe I need to experiment a bit more.

    Would we not loose a lot of enzymes building up in the mouth? Is the work of chewing not more important than working it thru a blender drinking smoothies?

    Yes thomas, getting natural digestive enzymes from chewing your food is very important. If you simply drink your food you won’t excrete any or little digestive enzymes which won’t break down the food as well as possible. Dr. Mcoomb’s has covered this before and feels that smoothies concentrate the sugars found in foods and that it doesn’t aid digestion which is very important while on the diet.
