Color Therapy

One of my favorite elements of juicing is watching the layers of pure hue stack in the juice pitcher as I feed in each different ingredient.  After I finish, I stir all the colors together and enjoy seeing what color the juice ends up being.

Today I did part beet and part kale thinking that green plus red equals brown...but red won out.  Even my nine year old commented spontaneously, "Wow, the red really dominates the green!"

Full Spectrum:
1/2 beet
2 c. raw kale
2 stalks of celery
2 apples
2 pears
p.s.  Tomorrow my family will eat a loaf of quick bread I made from the pulp of today's recipe...I followed a zucchini bread recipe, but substituted today's very green pulp for shredded zucchini.
