1 head romaine lettuce or celery

1 handful of cilantro or parsley (or both for deeper green juice)
1 handful of fennel (stalk can be used too)

The juicer that I currently use (BTW it’s the same as filmed in the Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead documentary) is Breville Juice Fountain JE98XL which you can find on Amazon or in any store that carries kitchen appliances. If you’re on the market for a juicer, it's a good juicer to consider.
