Cottage Pulp – that’s an appealing title, eh? Hehe, I promise the final product is much better than the name. You see, I’ve been juicing (well, only on the weekends) with my awesome NutriPro, and itz been amazingly delicious. However, it produces so.much.pulp, and I’ve needed more ways than one to use the pulp, so it doesn’t go to waste. Pulp bread is especially awesome with carrot pulp and green pulp. The other day I made a juice that contained grapefruit, orange, and lemon and I thought that may taste funky going into bread. Instead, I took a couple scoops and plopped it on top of cottage cheese and sprinkled it with chia seeds. Cottage Pulp.
Itz much prettier than the name suggests, too, right? You’ve got a great deal of fiber from the pulp, protein and calcium from the cottage cheese, and healthy fats from the chia seeds. Awesome snack! Add that to the list of how to use juice pulp!
Can you believe itz the last Wednesday in February? That means itz the last WIAW for Love Your Veggies month with Peas and Crayons.
Usually I use milk, but we were out, so I had to suffice with water only. The banana did a good job of making it a bit creamy. The above recipe made about two large glasses. A spoonful of sunflower seed butter was also consumed for breakfast.
Lunch was my last Diet-to-Go meal: beef short ribs with bordelaise sauce.
Very tasty like all their meals. Dinner was an easy crockpot dish. Into the crockpot went chicken, onions, vegetable broth, salsa, black beans, diced tomatoes, quinoa, and corn. I served it over shredded cabbage and topped it with plain greek yogurt, avocado, and red pepper.
For the past couple of days my car has shown that one of my tires was low on air. My tires have nitrogen in them, so I can’t just go anywhere to get air. Long story short, I had to drive 15 minutes away to find out there was a nail in my tire. An hour and a half later I was on my way home, cranky and hungry. After eating dinner, I decided this definitely warranted fro yo (like I really need an excuse, ha!). So I helped myself to a lovely bowl of cake batter and cookie dough frozen yogurt topped with a couple of cookie dough pieces and a brownie bite.
Yes, I did find it necessary to show you exactly where those bites of goodness were located in my fro yo bowl. :) They, of course, got eaten last since the best always gets saved for last.
Do you save the best for last or eat the best first?
