Default yummy green and very veggie

Yummy Green:
1 large granny smith apples (cored and quartered)
a 1-2" peice of fresh ginger, peeled and sliced
3-4 stalks/leaves of kale (rinsed)
several handfuls of baby spinach (rinsed)
1 handful of parsley (rinsed)
1 green bell pepper
half a lime (peeled)
1 large seedless cucumber (sliced lengthwise and cut in thirds to fit in the chute)
2-3 stalks of celery
(I've tried cilantro, but found it takes over the flavors - but if you like it, go for it!)

This makes between 20 and 36 ounces of juice, so either enough to share with a mate - or to store half in closed jar in the fridge for tomorrow.

Very Veggie:
1 granny smith apple (cored and sliced)
4-5 organic carrots (more or less, depending on size)
2 small tomatoes (cut in halves - seems to juice quicker that way)
1 seedless cucumber (sliced lengthwise and cut in thirds)
small bunches of whatever herbs you like (basil, mint, parsley)
1 handful of kale or red chard (rinsed)
1 organic beet (scrubbed, rinsed and quartered - greens and all)
fresh ginger (peeled and sliced)
half a lemon or lime (peeled)
3-4 organic radishes (scrubbed and rinsed - greens and all)
2-3 stalks celery (leave the leaves on)

Makes a LOT of juice - more than enough to share or to have the next day. I get everything washed, cut and ready in a large collander so it's ready to all juice at once. The pulp goes into my compost bin - so I don't worry about 'waste'. Also, you could use it in veggie broth or soup base.
