When juicing, save the pulp and freeze to add to baked goods later on.

Juicing is great and healthy but I always try to find some way to get 'double duty' from all the processed veggies left over from my juicer afterward.
I found adding the ground veggies to my homemade soups (like my homemade onion soup pictured here) tasted great and added more veggies/nutrients and fiber to the soup, making it even hardier.
I also added the ground veggie remains to my crockpot spaghetti sauce.
It thickened it up without needing to add tons of meat and made it pack more healthy vitamins and fiber.
The ground up veggies don't really add any heavy veggie taste either and I even had fruit in my juiced remains. So it's a great way to get more veggies into your kids too!
Other ways to use the pulp from juicing. I feel it is a sin ;) to just toss away the good leftovers from veggies and fruits so I am kinda making stuff up and if it's good, I send it in to share.
Here are my two recent additions (if they are duplicates of somebody else, forgive me).
Variations: Add cheese, peas, sour cream. Very yummy!
I just wanted to share some ideas, not enter the contest.

I use a juicer daily to give my body the nutrition it needs/deserves which leavers me with a lot of extra pulp/fiber that I didn't know what to do with at the end of the day. I hated throwing it away so I bury it in my organic garden and it helps my vegetables grow better than ever! Happy Gardening.

Add to fruit pulp to yogurt to add some fiber. (01/02/2009)
I have an absolutely excellent recipe for juicer pulp.
Combine all ingredients in a food processor, roll into a very thin "dough", and dehydrate at 105 degrees for 12 hours! The resulting crackers are wonderful, very high fiber, and will bust a hunger pang in a second. Eat a few, drink some water, and you're not hungry anymore. Loaded with fiber, obviously! (08/17/2009)
