>> good morning.
>> do you have a governing philosophy about juicing? can you throw anything in together.
>> everything works, anything and everything. it's really a taste profile. basic guideline, usually if you have something green with half a piece of a small piece of fruit or root vegetable , it will take the sweetness and take out the bitterness.
>> shall we try one here.
