Juicing? With my lifelong oral fixation (don’t get any funny ideas), I just can’t imagine going even five hours without chewing on something.

    I have all of these but one and that's turnip greens as haven't seen them sold like that. I still juice here and there and add wheat grass or spirilina. Just started to leave the wine off for a bit.
