I am starting to track the cost of juicing, so this week I saved my reciept from Sprouts Farmers Market and will be keeping track of how much juice I make each day. Once I run out of the fruits and vegetables I will post the results. I also took some photos of all the goodies in the fridge after I put away the groceries, I will post those photos later this week. To start off this week, we had a good combination of fruits and vegetables including White Asparagus, bottom half only because we use the tips for dinner, win win! As seen in the photo below we also had zucchini, lime, red apple, ginger, kiwi, peaches, kale, spinach, garlic, brussell sprouts, celery necturine, bok choy, cabbage, blackberries, blueberries, roma tomato and cilantro. It was good.
I used the desktop version of Picasa to edit this photo. You can see the original photo taken with my Motorola Xoom Android uploaded to Facebook, Twitter and Google+. See “Find Me On” section —> for my Twitter and Facebook links. In Picasa I first used the HDRish effect and then added a little shadowing. I also use Picasa to type geekgoodgirl.com in the corner of the photo.

UPDATE: correction, it was around 40 ounces of juice not 60..
Today I emptied the fridge, well not completely but of most fruits and vegetables. We have small amounts of parsley, garlic and a few carrots still left. But I will be heading to the store shortly to stock back up.
This week on Facebook I was asked how much we spend on the fruits and vegetables we use for juicing our lunch. I could only give a guess, I do not just buy fruits and vegetables. My guess was maybe around $100 a week and probably on the high side. We both have anywhere from 16 to 20 ounces of juice each time we juice. So maybe $7 per glass which averages around 18 ounces of juice. I am sure this is on the high side. So today I will save my receipt, then keep track of how much juice I get from it. Watch for more information on our cost on juicing next week.
