Juicer!

In an effort to consume some more fruits and vegetables, and use up some of the vast quantities of vegetables that are accumulating in my refrigerator (thanks, CSA), I bought a juicer. A Hurom slow juicer, to be specific.

It's kind of hard to believe that it's possible to make two cups of beverage out of this:

This is the alkaline juice recipe from the Hurom juicer recipe book (p. 7):

1 cup fresh spinach
1/2 large cucumber
2 celery stalks including leaves
3 medium carrots
1/2 apple (I used a whole apple)

This turned out a questionable brown color, probably because some of my carrots were purple carrots, but it wasn't bad. It was better on ice.
