PULP TOO GOOD TO TOSS!! #CARROT AND BEET MUFFINS

I couldn’t bear to toss. I made myself beet and carrot juice. I incorporated finely chopped ginger root and a squeeze of lime. With a splash of water, all ingredients were placed in standing blender. This was blended and then strained so as to remove pulp.

Though most of the juice was extracted, I retained the pulp which still contained enormous fibers, beta-carotene, and other nutrients. I decided to make  carrot and beet muffins. I added shredded carrot to same and combined.
