The fibre in the pulp that we can so easily throw away after juicing is high in fibre and nutrients and has a vital role in supporting our digestive health. I hope that this post will inspire you to re-purpose the pulp into your daily food to take your juicing experience and the benefits to the next level.
The most ideal time to utilise it is immediately after juicing so that it remains in its freshest state – or freeze it for later use.
Aside from composting and feeding hungry chickens or your worm farm, here are some simple tips on how to use all the pulp that adds up day after day.
