Juicing! Some of my favorite recipes.

I love juicing! There are so many different recipes and there really is no wrong way most everything i have experimented with tastes good.
When it comes to how much, that really depends on the type of juicer you have so i say at first try a few things until you have an idea.
This is also a super easy way to get kids to eat there veggies! Whats even more fun is freezing the juice after in Popsicle molds. A healthy alternative to sugary Popsicles.
My favorite recipes:

4-6 strawberries
1 green apple
1/4-1/2 lemon (peel on)
2 large carrots
*optional, add blueberries, cranberries, blackberries.

1/2 tomato
2 large celery stalks
2 asparagus stalks
2-3 Brussels sprouts
1-2 large carrot sticks
