What's a good way to juice greens, like spinach and kale? Everytime I do it, they kind of blow away into the juicer and I don't get much juice out of it. Should I use the stems to tie up a bundle of the leaves and then place it into the juicer?

You could try juicing them with something like carrots. Maybe wrap some leaves around a carrot and put them through that way.

I personally wouldn't use spinach, but kale is great and romaine. juice it with carrots (my least favorite) or tomatoes, celery, cucumbers, parsley, lemon. You can even make a sweet one with apples!

Or you could put them in a blender with water but then you'd have the pulp in there. That's ok though fiber is good

^This is the best way I've found, though I haven't tried to juice wheatgrass or sprouts yet. My favorites are straight carrot juice or a combo of kale, spinach, green apple, and parsley: absolutely delicious, so good for you, and very energizing!
