Ok so now that i have a juicer, i have become very aware of the fact that it leaves a LOT behind.
I have scoured the internet for some solutions on how NOT to waste all that fiber!

It’s a common question for those of us who love juicing our fruits and vegetables… “What can I do with the pulp that is leftover after I juice my produce?” Good news is there are plenty of ideas to inspire you to start using the pulp so it doesn’t go to waste.
1. In the mood for something warm? Add it to your next soup recipe or make your own veggie broth.
2. Add to your favorite vegetarian burger recipe. It adds flavor, texture, moisture and nutrition.
3. Use pulp from homemade cinnamon hazelnut milk to make Raw Cinnamon Rolls!
4. Add it to your next smoothie recipe to add in additional fiber. You’ll be surprised how you won’t be able to taste it!
5. Add pulp to add nutrients to delicious muffins.
6. Compost your pulp and add it to your garden.
7. Make an Italian favorite into a nutrient rich dish by using pulp to make vegetarian Spaghetti & Meatballs
8. If you don’t have time to use the pulp immediately, you can place it in resealable bags and freeze it until you are ready. While some of the nutritional value may be lost when freezing, most of the fiber will remain.
9. Feed it to your furry friends! Add a little leftover kale pulp to your dog’s food bowl, they will scarf it down.
One of the questions I get asked most about juicing is “What can I do with the juice pulp?” Tons of things! Read on for 20 of my favorite uses for leftover juice pulp—and get inspired to reduce your food waste and make fantastic use of healthful fiber.
1. Blend pulp into a smoothie to add fiber.
2. Add to a soup to thicken and boost fiber and nutrient density.
3. Use fruit pulp to make frozen “pulpsicles” or fruit pulp ice.
4. Make a veggie broth by boiling pulp with water, herbs, and spices, then straining.
5. Make a “fruit tea” by boiling fruit pulp with water, adding spices such as cinnamon or ginger, cooling, and then straining.
6. Use veggie pulp to add nutrient density to mac n’ cheese or pasta sauce, or layer into a lasagna.
7. Make fabulous fruit leathers.
9. Use in homemade veggie burgers or fritters. Pulp adds moisture, flavor, and nutrition.

*Please note, the moisture content of your juice pulp can vary depending on your juicer, so you may need to squeeze out excess juice for the best results in some of these recipes.
