My lovely neighbors gave me one of those Magic Bullet blender thingies for Christmas and I’m finally going to take it out of the box and try to use it. It’s a bit daunting. It looks like there will be so many parts that need cleaning. That, I dread. And I’m not just a little apprehensive — I’m VERY apprehensive about juicing. Apparently word on the street is that you can throw in every root vegetable known to man, add an apple and it’s all good. But the very thought of putting green sludge to my lips engages my gag reflex. How am I going to get past this and justify having this over-hyped blender sitting on my counter taunting me?
So have you tried juicing? Is there some recipe that newbie juicers should start off with so we’re not turned off to it forever? Do I just have to suck it up and swallow the green sludge? Does adding an apple really make everything all good? If y’all don’t help a sister out here, I’m going to have to go google the opinions of strangers. Don’t make me google.
