Pulp Fiction. One of the main misconceptions of juicing is that you get the total health benefits that you get when you eat the actual fruit or vegetable. Well you don’t honey. Since you are extracting the juice, the skin (which is where the vitamins and minerals live) and the pulp (which is where the fiber hangs out) gets left behind. So add a little bit of the leftover pulp back after you press your lovely juices and automatically add some of those healthy perks back. Oh and if you want to really juice up your juice, make it more balanced with protein. Some good sources are almond milk, Greek yogurt, flaxseed, or peanut butter. Yum.
