Juicing Day 6 - Lots of Pulp

There is so much pulp leftover after I make my juices.  I felt bad just throwing it away (as I don't have a garden or compost) so I looked up some recipes to make with the pulp.

Once recipe was to make vegetable stock, which is great to use in making soups.  The recipe is simple, add the pulp, water and spices and simmer for a couple hours.  Strain the pulp from the liquid and you have your stock.

If I had a strainer cloth this might have worked better, but overall it didn't make much stock.

Not a lot of stock
 
I did cheat a little bit this weekend, I had a glass of wine at a party and made butternut squash and apple soup.  I know I am only supposed to do 'juices' but having warm soup helped the emotional side so much that I didn't care.

glad you got something warm.it's effing cold out there. btw you know you are totally gorgeous right?! after meeting you my sister said "oh my gosh Steph is sooooooo pretty!" I was like "I know!!"
yep, direct quotes.

I think the issue with the gfs who complain is a hard one, but they might complain to you because they think you're beautiful and don't know it's hurting you. Even older awesomely fast bike racer woman who you wouldn't think would care still complain about weight and body image. I found that shocking recently lol. I guess it's a constant struggle especially for the athlete oriented friends set who have even higher fitness standards on top of the norm. I think you were brave to call people out on it in your post. It's a hard subject.
