I've heard a lot about juicing lately, and decided to give it a try. My sister bought a juicer a few months ago and has been juicing a lot and so she provided me with my first experience on juicing.
For my first (and most favorite) juice, she did 1 green apple, 1/2 cucumber, 1/2 lemon, and a bunch of kale( not sure of exact measurement).
As you can see, it made this bright green healthy smoothie. I'll tell you right now this was sour...and I loved it. It almost tasted like those virgin margarita's I love so much. Just needed some salt on the rim. :)
Over the course of the week I was home we juiced beets, carrots, cucumbers, kale, lemons, mangoes, swiss chard, apples, basically anything we could get our hands on. Overall, this more sour one was my favorite. After having my first experience with juicing...here are my thoughts. I think it is pretty awesome, and I especially love the ability to use fruits and veggies that you may be less likely to eat or use in a dish before they expire. Love the health benefits too! With that being said, the biggest drawback I see is having to clean the juicer. I really can't picture myself wanting to pull out the mess for a cup of juice, ya know? Definitely something to think about and overall the experience was pretty positive. I see why it's become such a "thing" to do. :)
