My Love-Hate Affair with Veggie Juice

In my previous post, I talked about the idea of juicing leftover salad mix. Well, this week I finally got around to trying out this idea.

Although, I’m vegetarian and love my veggies, I’m a wimp when it comes to actually drinking vegetable juice. My dislike of veggie-tasting juice stems from childhood, with my mother giving us V8 — I hated it then, and still do not like it, except for V8 Splash, which tastes more like fruit juice.

I probably won’t juice salad mix anytime soon, but may try some other vegetable-juice blends, or just take a trip to my friendly grocer and buy Odwalla.
