(short on time sorry) cbaa - I juice! At least once, maybe twice a day. Try simple juices first. 2, maybe 3 ingredients. Kale is very bitter. You may find you like it better by starting with a less bitter green (spinach for example). You will get more juice if you use watery fruits/veggies as a base (apple, cucumber, celery, citrus). Try more fruit in it if it still too bitter for you (you can wean yourself off of and make it stronger when you get used to it). Another tip is juice a softer fruit/veggie after a harder one. Example: piece of carrot followed by piece of orange. This will help stuff not to get stuck in the screen and give you more juice too. I really like the book Juicing for Life by Cherie Calbom.
ugh. Ran out of time. Be back later.
