I've had my juicer a week now and have really enjoyed making fresh fruit/vegetable juice for myself and my long-suffering hubby.
It doesn't take long to figure out that some veggies are a bit "tarter" than others but I just keep telling myself that this is medicine for my body and medicine doesn't always taste good. Don't get me wrong, the juices have been good, just one or two have been "challenging".
This morning I tried beets with greens mixed with carrot, grapefruit (personal fav.) a green apple and 1/2 a lemon (this was a left over and I hate to be wasteful). While I enjoy beetroot, the juice with greens was quite strong. I think next time I'll add some pineapple to sweeten it a bit!
Back to what I've learned:
1) it is a bit of effort cleaning the juicer out when I've make juices.
2) I have the best husband in the world! He is willing to try anything I make him :-)
3) because I'm hypothyroid, I shouldn't eat raw cruciferous vegetables. This includes arugula, cabbage, kale, broccoli, cauliflower and brussel sprouts.
last and most importantly!!
4) I HAVE MUCH MORE ENERGY!!!!! because of that, item #1 is trivial!
