Popeye's Blueberry Juice

I love to create Juice Recipes much like I used to love to create food recipes. So this weekend I went into the kitchen and played around with my food. This is one of my newest recipes I came up with. This might not look like it tastes good but it is amazing.

I call it my Popeye Blueberry Juice.
12 oz of Spinach
6 oz of Beet Tops (if you have them)
12 oz of Strawberries hulls included
6 Granny Smith Apples
12 oz of frozen Blueberries (thawed) or fresh
2 Large Oranges

Wrap the greens with the strawberries and apples as you juice them to get the most juice. Follow with the blueberries and the rest of your apples and the oranges.
Pure energy and very yummy.

Quinoa Chili with Beans from Juice Pulp

It's Cold.... You want something nice, warm and healthy to feed the non- juicing folks in your home.
 This is the perfect dish and so easy too.
First thing you will want to do is make up Sandi's Spicy Cocktail Juice and save the pulp. 
Grab a food processor and  crock pot
1 can of black beans (rinsed and soaked in water for 5 minutes then rinsed again)
1/2 Onion
4 cloves of Garlic
Bell Pepper
1 Large Jalapeno
Black Pepper

Super EASY and if you are on a Juice Feast (or cleanse as some folks call it) this make a perfect dinner and it helps to keep you out of the kitchen and away from temptation.

Add your pulp into the food processor along with some of your fresh juice. Process until a thick mixture. Then add the other items and small amount of  fresh water and process to til chopped. 
Place this mixture into a crock pot and cover. Turn on low and leave it. 
If you will be home 2 hours before serving the Quinoa can be added to the crock pot the last 2 hours with vegetable stock. If you will not be home until closer to dinner time cook the Quinoa in a ricer and add it to the chili mixture.
1/4 Cup Quiona to 1 Cup Vegetable Stock.
(either in the chili 2 hours before serving in crock pot or 30 minutes before serving on stove and add to chili)
Hope you enjoy this Pulp Recipe. 
I'm Juicing January and my husband is eating healthy so look for more ways in the coming days that I use the pulp from my juices to make healthy meals for him.
