You can juice that?

So today the goal was to get some project done (ie without kiddos)... after dropping off my son at preK I headed for a quick Walmart run. Generally one of my least favorite stores but it's close and I need veggies and ribbon, the very reason Wally world was invented right, so you can get bizarre combinations of items all in one place. Anyway, after loading up my little cart with all my goodies I met a very nice cashier who it turns out has not been exposed to many fruits and vegetables.  I got asked, 'what's this', a lot!

As part of our family's change in diet we bought a juicer and have started juicing fruits and veggies.  If the cashier couldn't figure out what kale was you can imagine her surprise when I told I was going to be juicing it!  After getting my kiddos dropped off, fighting traffic and a trip to the store I was anywhere from ready to start my day of projects.  Oh... I should probably add that my sweet baby girl decided to wake up at 3:30 am again and didn't think going back to sleep in her bassinet was a good idea (insert mama's tired face here...).  So tired mama, lots of projects and energy needed equaled this little juice concoction.

Pick Me Up Juice
3 handfuls of spinach
1 roma tomato
2 stalks of celery (I have found this to be my max celery before feeling like I am drinking dirt)
2 oranges
2 apples (I used one gala and one granny smith)
3 handfuls of baby carrots

It turned out quite yummy.
