Orange You Glad It's Monday?

The citrus I usually have on hand is mandarin cuties because I have little kids.  The size is perfect for a snack and they peel so easily my kids can do it themselves.  But I have to say that juicing is not the best way to use these cuties.  As far as cost effectiveness goes, a bag of navel oranges is a much smarter citrus option for juicing.

I have read that when removing the peel from citrus fruit before juicing, to try to keep on as much of the white membrane that you can, as it is a great source of bioflavonoids which helps the body assimilate and use vitamin C.

An Orange Juice of Sorts:
2 peeled oranges
3 medium carrots
1/3 head of raw cabbage
1/4 peeled lemon
2 radishes
3 stalks of celery
