Juiced!

I have been hearing a ton of people talk about juicing. To be completely honest, half of the ingredients that get mixed together kinda gross me out. BUT, I gave it a try anyways.

I went to the grocery store and picked up a bunch of produce. Then searched recipes. (Backwards, yes?)
 
I chopped myself up a green apple, a little bit of broccoli, 1 1/2 Kale leaves, a handful of spinach, a kiwi and a banana. I really had no idea what it was going to taste like. I figured I like Odwallas Superfood, so how bad can it be right?
My cute handy dandy juicer. (Dont mind that I got it 2 years ago for Christmas, and have only used it twice!)

So, I had the juice, and it was soooo yummy! It didnt make a whole lot, so I am thinking I need to put more things in. I feel like this is going to be a lot of trial and error on my part.

When I was cleaning out the juicer, this is what I found. A lot of the veggies were just shredded up in the catch basin. I dont know if that is normal or not, since im not a pro juicer and all, but it felt like a waste to me.




If any of you beautiful readers are juicers, I would loooove any tips and tricks that you might have for me. I want to make this a regular habit, but I want to know that I am being the most efficient with my produce as possible. Oh yeah, and any yummy, non veggie tasting recipes you might have, send them my way!
