So how many oranges had to die in making that 8oz of juice? LOL. I think you had better enjoy and savour that juice as that 8oz just cost you $3.

That's why they have that 'orange drink' at McDonald's.

Maybe we "won't" be playing online with you tonight.

You will not be staring in your own Old Spice commercial.

Bought a Breville Juicer Elite yesterday (but I did not pay that much for it). I am trying to figure out juicing and needless to say this post is a sign that I have not figured it out. LOL!!!!

Made a "Mean Green" juice today, and by all means, it was "mean". Very strong, I suspect I put too much of something in. Had kale, carrots, cucumber, celery, apples, lemon, and ginger. I'm thinking this probably wasn't the one to start with. I did make a juice yesterday that we liked, carrot, apple and celery. It could have had less celery than what was called for, but otherwise, not bad.

For those of you who have juiced or juice, any tips? Any recipes you'd like to share?

It was the kale, I tried it once with my juicer, not good.

1 cucumber, a few apples, spinach, carrots, a few oranges and a lemon is not half bad.

I also found the juice a bit more enjoyable when after making the juice, I blended it with some frozen strawberries or blueberries.

I juiced for a month or so. Back to just some protein drinks for now. Been making smoothies instead of just juice, mostly a little protein powder, water, some strawberries and a banana.

Yep. Kale is kind of the fly in the ointment. Fresh turnip or spinach greens are pretty good too. Try a mix with some beets in it. That spooked me a bit the next day.
