All the fruit i have tried has been really good, mainly just wanted some ideas on which veggies work/taste the best and what ratios of each to use. Thanks.

I didn't think taste was a priority for people who juice.  In fact, I thought the goal was to see how hard you could gag but keep it down.  

I was watching Chef Academy and the head dude was juicing stuff and made his gay assistant try it.  The guy retched daintily.  The chef was just throwing stuff together at random.  I say do that.  After that I got nuthin'.

And eat the stuff that gets screened out to see how full you can get the toilet.

 I never liked the tomato based stuff. Carrots. I tried a bunch of stuff but it was some combo of carrots, apples, oranges, lemons, strawberries.

I tried the veggies and liked them but I OD'd on beets. Everything said take the beets slowly but I didn't listen. I felt like I got high.

When I eat carrots, I prefer them unpeeled. When juicing thought, I always peel them...with peels leaves a very different, bitter taste.

Carrot juice is actually delicious on its own if you try it.

Try juicing:
2 carrots
1-2 apple
1 pear
small piece of ginger
mix in cinnamon to taste

I also add stevia (cold fusion ftw) and cut the whole concoction with water.

Tastes great.
