7 Healthy Juice Recipes That Won't Mess with Your Blood Sugar ...

Juicing is all the rage right now, and despite all the negative criticisms juicing might get, there are some pretty healthy juice recipes out there. Juicing often gets touted as a dangerous practice due to the impact on our blood sugar fresh vegetable and fruit juices can have. Without fiber in juices, our body receives all the direct vitamins and minerals in juices, including glucose, or sugar, naturally occurring in these foods. Thankfully, we don’t have to suffer hypoglycemia as a result of juicing. I actually enjoy how energized juicing makes me feel, but I keep all my juices low glycemic by keeping the amounts of fruit low. If you’d like some delicious, cleansing, and healthy juice recipes that won’t mess with your blood sugar, try some of my favorites out below. Then, juice up and enjoy all the benefits!

1. Natalia Rose’s “Green Lemonade”

My favorite holistic health author, and juicing expert is Natalia Rose who is my go-to for finding healthy juice recipes. Natalia is a best selling author on holistic health and natural cleansing who teaches us how to cleanse our bodies through whole foods, nature, and life-breathing. She is also an excellent person to turn to on the subject of low- glycemic diets and lifestyles. Her book, “Detox for Women” introduced me to my favorite juice of all, which she calls, “Green Lemonade”. It’s delicious and tastes so much like real lemonade, but won’t mess with your blood sugar at all. It helps to alkalize, assists in digestion and can also help reduce your blood sugar on a regular basis.

Ingredients:
1 head romaine lettuce
5 stalks of dino kale, or curly kale
1 organic lemon

2. Linda Wagner’s “Skin Rejuvenator Juice”

Another top holistic health expert I’m incredibly fond of is Linda Wagner. Linda comes from a long health journey, that has ultimately led her to a natural, holistic diet that incorporates juicing. Her website, LindaWagner.com, is one of the most popular natural health websites for women today and she also offers her own nutritional counseling. Linda recently posted a recipe for her “Skin Rejuvenator Juice”, and it’s one of my new favorites. Though it contains fruit, the sources are very low glycemic, and it is the perfect refreshment after a long workout, or for stressed out skin.

1 piece of fresh mint
slice of fresh fennel bulb

As a bonus, it’s especially wonderful for your skin and hair to help beautify you too!

If you’re new to the idea of juicing, or scared to try it, I hope you’ll give some of these recipes a try. Most people find they love it once they start. If you don’t have a juicer, you can blend all these recipes in a high speed blender on high, and then strain them with a nut milk bag, or a cheesecloth. These recipes are perfect for introducing juicing into your diet, but I don’t suggest replacing your meals with them. I suggest adding one to your day before breakfast, which is my favorite time to juice. None of these recipes will mess with your blood sugar either, which is essential when learning how to juice properly. Do you juice?
