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.

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!
