The power juicer on my countertop scares me. It's like brand new but I've only used it one or two times. It once held a prominent place in my kitchen, but now it's lurking in a remote corner by the toaster. I shoved it there.
There are times I'm convinced it's inched out in the night, calling all chocolate from the shelves, drawers and hidden crevices to give account. Maybe it's just me. Maybe I've seen The Nutcracker Suite one too many times.
I have a love/hate relationship with this mechanical beast. I know if I would let it work its magic, it could stir up for me some very healthy drinks. We all know I could use "healthy" in my diet.
But I have this thing about turning orange.
So there it is. My fear. Of turning orange. I've seen it happen to healthy people. They walk around looking like faded carrots.
Still, there's that health thing . . . .
Here's where you come in. Maybe you've tried the juicing thing and you know there are some tasty recipes out there that won't turn people orange. FYI, I'm sorry to say I'm not one of those who can drink raw eggs in some kind of nasty mix just because it's good for me. Taste is big in my book.
So please tell me how to make some yummy veggie drinks in this mixer--without changing my skin color. :-)
