At first I thought you were referring to steriod use.  And was like…WTF?!  But anyway, I do have a juicing machine.  I love it.  I personally like to juice carrots.  I’ve never realized how delish it can be…and so fresh.

The thought of juiced leafy greens makes me want to gag!  I can’t even stand V8 juice!

I love wheatgrass shots, so I bet I would like juiced leafy greens.  You could probably make something like superfood juice, and add some fruits to make it sweeter and yummy.

Haha I also clicked on this thread a bit bewildered, expecting it to be about steroids!  I love my high-powered juicer (a Vitamix) and it can process things like carrot tops, etc…it’s AWESOME because you get to retain so many nutrients and experience flavors you couldn’t before.  I can’t really be any help for recipes, though, I’m in the “throw it in till it tastes good” camp… But have fun!  My vitamix is like my favorite possession.

@Sulli: The fruit flavored V8 is such crap. The most abundant vegetable in it is potato!!

My mom was on a big juicing kick for a while (making juice out of fruits and veggies, NOT taking steroids!) and she actually made some concoctions that included leafy greens/carrots/other veggies that were pretty tasty. On their own, its pretty gross, but if you include sweet and delicious fruits, you taste the gross part less, but still get the nutritional benefits! I’ll see if I can get any of her old recipes, but you should definitely just experiment to find what you like.

My favorite green juice recipe is from Kris Carr from Crazy Sexy Life…

I use:

1 stem of broccoli

1/2 a green apple

1 cucumber

1 small handful of kale

1 handful of sprouts

1 inch of ginger

and

2 stalks of celery.

 

The more Kale you use the more bitter it will be, so go easy on the kale, and you can always add other greens, collard greens, romaine etc.  They are all super good for you!
