Dear Velda
If you find that liquidising raw vegetables which you would normally eat whole, is starting to make you constipated, then it may be prudent to only liquidise some of the vegetables and to eat the rest whole. The process of cutting up vegetables very finely during the liquidisation process can make the fibre less efficient in providing bulk to your diet and ensuring regularity.
Another alternative is to have a serving of high-bran cereal for breakfast or to add 1-2 teaspoons of wheat bran to the smoothie once you have liquidised the vegetables.
