Pulp Crackers = YUM

If you follow my blog you know that I took a 30 day juice challenge (to juice 30-40 ounces per day for 30 days straight) back in February and haven’t looked back.  I felt such a difference in my energy, digestion & overall health I decided it is a lifestyle for me.  So as you can imagine I have a TON of pulp daily.  I decided to buy a dehydrator and make my own pulp crackers.  Now you know if you don’t eat any grains that eating a cracker that DOES NOT hurt your gut is amazing!  I take the pulp, add a few spices & some water, make into patties & dehydrate for 9 hours.  YUM YUM YUM!  I use them to dip in all three of my meals.  There is a ton of fiber and they are just crunchy, salty goodness!

Here is my new toy: Breville Juicer 800JEXL


Today I juiced: 1 head romaine lettuce, 8 carrots, 1 granny smith apple, 1/4 head green cabbage & 1 orange (orange for Ben!)


I store the juice in these mason jars in the fridge.  I drink one right away in the morning, one mid morning or post workout & one in the afternoon.




Add 1/2 cup water (or so), organic spices: garlic powder, onion powder, bragg’s flakes, parsley, salt & basil.  (you can add whatever you want)


Flatten into patties & dehydrate for 9 hours.


My Excalibur 5 tray dehydrator.  LOVE LOVE LOVE!


Amy’s Pulp Crackers!!!  I store them in a ziplock bag.


I also will throw onto my dehydrator a banana or two that are turning, a sliced apple, kiwi or whatever fruit I desire.  I usually add cinnamon to my fruit.  Sooo yummy & ZERO preservatives!

Fall is Here & Apples are in Season!!!


Amy’s Apple Crisp

5-7 apples, peeled (I left a few strips of peel)
Lots of Cinnamon
2 tbsps organic raw sugar
3/4 cup almond flour OR make your own (I used 3/4 cup raw almonds & blended them for 30 sec to make my flour)
1 egg

Peel apples & put them in the bottom of your pie dish.  Sprinkle with lots of cinnamon & 1 tbsp sugar.  Mix with your hands.  Blend your flour & put into a bowl w/ egg, cinnamon & 1 tbsp sugar.  Whip with a fork.  Mash the almond mixture onto the top of your apples.  Bake for 30 min at 350 degrees.

Serve warm – YUM!!!

If you are lucky enough to live on the Central Coast like we do go up to Gopher Glen (up See Canyon Rd) to buy your apples.  They have a TON of different apples you can try and really good prices.  Super fun way to get apples!  Kids will love it too 🙂
