How to juice without too much pulp going to waste

Many feel that juicing produces too much waste in the form of leftover pulp. We all know that juicing helps our bodies to feel better, so here are a few suggestions that will hopefully get you back to feeling good (even conscientiously) about the whole process.

Option 1:  Put your pulp into a compost pile or compost bin.

Option 2:  Add it to your baked goods, such as quick bread recipes.

Option 3:  Juice green vegetables and leave out the carrots.  Carrot juice creates the most pulp.


The carrot juice was a mixture of 1 large apple and about 12 carrots which left behind 2 1/2 cups of pulp. Whereas the green juice was a mixture of 3 large green leaves, 1 cucumber, 1 stalk celery and 1/2 green apple which only produces 1/3 cup of pulp but a full 12 ounces of juice! (Note:  The large greens I used were mustard greens because they were all I had available.  It was very spicy!)

Yes, it's true that carrot/apple juice is a beneficial juice (used by Gerson Cancer Therapy) and also one that's very palatable to beginners.  But, if you've been juicing for a while and are ready to try some great juices for body cleansing, try a glass of green juice.
