I love my juicer….

I got a Jack La Lanne Juicer, and I’m in love with it….it is a simple juicer , not too expensive, and does the trick. I got it at Costco for under a 100$. Daily I put in a whole cucumber, 5 stalks of celery ( I grow my own) half a lemon, 3 small oranges, few leaves of bok choy or other green leafy veggie.

Here is one such recipe…..
