Raw Food - New Thing for Us

Something new developing here, due to my mom's knack for research.

Today I juiced: 1/3 of a fresh pineapple core and all, then 5 or 6 celery stalks, then a half of a cucumber, then a zucchini. I tasted each separately and then combined them together. The taste is a little off but... we're used to that kind of thing around here so it should fit right in. My husband would prefer it with less celery. We don't like that celery crap.
I used a little of the pulp to make a smoothie with a banana - and a little of the juice I just took from that pulp. It's very thick and I would have liked some carrot juice in there to sweeten it up and make it more familiar, or at least an apple.
After all that fun, I pulled out my dehydrator and smeared all the remaining pulp on a cutting mat that I cut to fit into the round dehydrator, then popped it in to dry for a few hours. We'll see what happens, I'm not following any recipe with this, I just didn't want to toss it. Maybe it'll come out as crackers.

So, all of this is considered Raw Food, for those of you wondering, and I'm test driving the system.
Oh, I'm also soaking almonds to make almond milk. YUM!
