So, I bought a juicer. My chiropractor has convinced me that it would decrease the inflammation in my back if I did even a six day juice fast. Secondly, we watched "Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead" on Netflix (I'd highly recommend it) and wanted to try juicing on a lesser level than the guy in the documentary.
I went for really healthy; I think we eat enough fruits that I wanted to focus on getting some really good green vegetables down everyone. I chose kale, spinach, carrots and apples; according to my chiropractor "if you throw an apple in any veggie mixture, it'll be good." That may be the case for a man who eats no chicken nuggets and cheesecake, but I wasn't thrilled with the taste. My children all dutifully tried a drink and said the same thing that I was thinking, "it isn't too bad." I can guarantee if I try to serve them a glass in the morning, they will politely decline (and I can't blame them.)
I'm going to have to go online and find some recipes that are perhaps a little less green. I may decide that it's an acquired taste and try a glass a day, but I'm not jumping on the idea of nothing but this for six days yet! (Our chicken is in the oven!)
Any juicers out there have any advice? I'd also like to know what to do with the pulp; it seems way too wasteful to not use it in some soup or something.
