By now, you’ve probably heard all about the different benefits of juicing fruits and vegetables.
The benefits include weight loss, the strengthening of the immune system and the quick energy boost of the naturally occurring sugars in our bodies.
For those of you new to juicing, the fruits and vegetables end up in a bowl and the pulp and all of the fibre end up in another. Some people throw this away as the majority of the nutrients are in the juice. The pulp however, provides some additional nutrients and practically all of the fibre so why just throw it away in the trash?
If you are new to the juicing craze, you may be shocked at the amount of pulp that is leftover and unsure about what to do with it.
Worry no longer, because we have put together a list of ways to use the leftover pulp simply by freezing it.
Your family dog will love chasing a frozen vegetable ball around the backyard and Fido will never know that he’s eating something natural and also incredibly healthy for him.
The uses are endless for the frozen spheres of goodness. If you still don’t know what to do with them, place them in a freezer bag for later and consider using them in your favourite salsa or as a healthy addition to hamburgers or meatloaf.
Freezing the pulp from juicing and bringing it back into the kitchen has many health benefits as well as reducing the amount of organic waste ending up in our landfills, which is estimated today at being almost 50%.
Why not consider using this healthy juicing by-product in your kitchen to provide more healthy goodness in your diet while at the same time, doing your part to save our planet.
