That sounds interesting Snip...what is in the drink?

It's gross!
2 cups spinach
2 cups cucumber with peel and seeds
1 head of celery
1 tsp of ginger root
1 bunch of parsley
2 apples with skin
juice of 1 lemon and 1 lime

chop all of the above and blend till smooth.

Oprah also drinks it each morning and it's apparently great for you but I find it really thick and grassy.

Go read about it on Dr. Oz's wesite, they say it's great for you and helps you lose weight etc etc.
Maybe my blender just isn't strong enough or maybe I should have used celery that was less tough? Who knows but it's meant to be blended for the fiber, not juiced.
Still too gross for me

This morning I had a bowl of the BEST tasting strawberries I have ever eaten. We got them on the weekend at a local craft market, so good I bought $35 worth lol. I don't know if they're organic, all I know is they're sooooo good they don't even taste like real fruit

Two eggs, sunny-side up, steamed kale, fresh hashbrowns, and a glass of fresh oj.

Snip--if you juice Dr. Oz's drink, you can stir some of the pulp back in. That's what I do when I make my veggie juice--not all the pulp, but about 3/4 to 1 c of it. I find I have to cut back on the ginger--overpowering. I usually add a couple of carrots and a beet or two (I use the juicer). And, w/out a dishwasher, I probably would drop my juicer off at the thrift store (where there are usually 2 or 3, hardly used, often with the user manual). The blades on your blender might be dull...you can sharpen them.
