Jimmy's juice fast day 1

So, we've had many many questions about what to put in your juice.
We've tried many many many recipes and we never really love them.
The best luck we have is when we just throw in whatever is laying around.
We follow a couple rules.....
          Lots and lots of green.
          At least 70% has to be veggies.
          VARIETY.  Don't get stuck using the same old things.   Try new things and mix it up.
For now, because I'm nursing Lexi, I'll just be drinking a juice in the afternoon as an added boost to my day.   I will be trying to make enough for Jimmy to dring a fresh one for breakfast and dinner.   When he's at school he will supplement with the NAKED juice brand Green Machine.
Here's our juicer....

We absolutely love it.   Gets all the juice out and can handle just about everything.
I will be soon testing a recipe for crackers using the leftover pulp.   We'll see how that goes!
Here's what we've juiced tonight....
1/2 a container of spinach
Some leftover romaine hearts
1/2 a bunch of parsley
1pound pack of carrots plus a couple more I had leftover
About 4 or 5 radishes
1 lemon
1 lime
1 inch or so of ginger
2 oranges
3 apples

Jimmy says its not bad - pretty sweet.
All juices are definitely better on ice.
