The 'official' beginning of my juicing!

So, today is the day! I 'officially' start juicing!
It was suppose to be this Thursday and following the website
Join the Reboot.
But our juicer has finally arrived and hubs doesn't want to wait!!
We are using the Breville Juice Fountain Plus used on
Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead.

Tonight we are making the 'Mean Geen' from the doumentary.

The recipe is as follows:
4 celery stalks
1 cucumber
1 thumb size portion of ginger
1/2 lemon
2 green apples
6 leaves of Kale

(These are mixed into the picture to the
right...picture is of what i just bought!)

Not knowing exactly what we are doing,
we begin putting everything in one at a time...

Can you see the foam at the top?
I think that was from the lemon...not sure, but it smells like celery.

So, here goes nothing....

UHHHH...not at ALL what I expected!!
Will take some time to get use to it!

SMELL: still of celery, slight ginger

TASTE: spicy, can taste the ginger,
must cut back on the ginger!!
Makes my eyes WATER!!

TEXTURE: very, very juice like,
wasn't sure since I have been juicing thru a blender with fruit. 

So, there we have it...the official start,
but I am NOT claiming this as Day 1!!

Must research other recipes,
 find better flavor matches for my taste buds!!
(something a little sweeter would do nicely!)

Besides, there's still some 
pan fried chicken 
in the fridge calling my name!!
