Delish! pics of my first juicing attempt

I've been playing with the Vitamix Blender quite a bit with amazing results. this morning i decided to give the juicer a whirl. I know to watch for calories, so decided to make a red apple.golden apple.lime.ginger juice. This is what I started out with

Then One by one, I plunged the pieces of fruits and veggies into my juicer and this is what i ended up with

It's amazing just how dry that pulp is. gonna pack it up in a container and dump it on mom's compost this afternoon.

And the final product. I only had about a half cup and put the rest in the refrigerator.

@Christine - I loved the combo of apples and carrots.
@Lena - it was delicious. Sunday morning I made a juice and it too was amazing.

I was telling a friend yesterday that I've never been into juice mainly because as a life-long dieter, i've stayed away from them because of calories and sugars, etc. It's so nice now to know I am able to enjoy these nutritious beverages because I know exactly what's going into them!!!!
