Fresh raw ingredients can sometimes be expensive and I like to get all the benefits I can from the foods I buy and prepare.
For instance, after I make my Green Smoothies and the blender container is empty, before I wash it, I add 16 oz. of purified or filtered water and turn on the blender just to mix up the remains of the smoothie and water. I drink this later on to add to my daily water intake and it makes cleaning out the blender canister easy!
I plan to start making "crackers" out of the fibrous remains from juicing too.
