If you juice regularly, you’ve probably wondered what to do with leftover fruit and vegetable pulp. I feel incredibly guilty for throwing away the leftover pulp ;(

 So first rule: never throw the pulp away! Composting is a great way to utilize it, but all that fruit and veggie goodness is an easy way to add fiber and moisture in dishes.

Here is an example of super way to use leftover pulp in your kitchen:

  • 1/3 C dried coconut
  • 1 t cinnamon
  • 1/3 C raisins or dried fruit of choice
  • hemp seeds, cocoa nibs or shredded coconut for garnish

  • Roll mixture into bite-sized balls and roll in hemp seeds, cocoa nibs or coconut
  • Store in the freezer

My husband & are just getting started with this new life style change…we love our goodies but also love veggies & are totally fed up with hearing eat this oh wait don’t eat that or well now it’s okay to eat that????? When will it stop!!! So I have been doing some research into the vegan/raw vegan…recipes & I am loving what I am seeing & reading however finding some of the ingredients are interesting to say the least but I think a store here called Wegman’s may have most of what the recipes call for.
