Juice Recipes for a Healthier Lifestyle

Fuel a Healthy Lifestyle

In order to lead a healthier lifestyle, you need ample amounts of vitamins, minerals, enzymes and antioxidants. Juices are the easiest and most delicious way to get all those essential nutrients. After all, modern diets generally revolve around fast food that is incapable of providing a well-balanced diet.

You can try out the various juicer recipes below to help ensure that your body receives proper nutrition. At the same time, juices make it easier to maintain a healthy weight. The major advantage of juicing is that the digestive system can process these liquids easily. This allows you to have more energy and generally it makes you feel good. With juices you can supress your hunger pangs, thereby reducing the amount of junk food in your diet.

 

Healthy Juice Recipes to Try Out

There a huge number of juice recipes that you can try out. Dependent on the ingredients being used, juices can have different nutritional properties and, of course, taste. All you require for the following recipes are a juicer (or blender) and the ingredients.

 

Recipe #1

  • 3 apples
  • 1 stick of celery
  • 1 handful Spinach
  • Half a cucumber
  • 1 cup of Ice
  • 1 handful of Lettuce

This juice is filled with antioxidants and the green vegetables to ensure that your body receives a lot of nutrients.

Recipe #2

  • 1/3 of pineapple
  • 1 handful of spinach
  • Half a cucumber
  • 2 apples
  • 1 cup of ice
  • Juice of 2 fresh limes

This juice is capable of providing a strong energy boost and the sweet taste makes it perfect as a morning drink.

Recipe #3

  • 2 Oranges
  • 2 Carrots
  • 1/4 head of lettuce
  • 1 celery stick
  • 1/4 head of cabbage
  • 2 large branches of broccoli

The sweet taste of the carrots and oranges removes the taste of vegetables but retains the nutritional value.

 

How to Approach a Diet with Juices

There are two ways you can add juices to your diet. You will need to decide upon the one that is suitable for your lifestyle and health needs.

   1. Casual Diet With Juices

If you take this approach, you do not have to stick to juices solely while dieting. You do not have to eliminate solid food from your diet. Instead, you can have juice whenever you want.

In this diet, you are simply replacing some of the foods you have normally with a juice alternative. This allows you to get more nutrients without compromising on the food you are eating. This also gives you access to more energy. With the correct juices, you can curb your hunger pangs as well.

   2. Complete Juice Based Diet

The most extreme diet option would be to limit your diet solely to juices. This diet certainly requires a lot of willpower. You are completely changing your diet which means your body will have to adjust to the new food intake.

 

Of course, you can always try out different juices over the course of your diet. This will give you a variety of nutrients and tastes. To get the best results you need to prepare extensively before embarking on such a diet. Finally, as with all diets, you should always consult your doctor for advice on the effects that this kind of diet will have on your body.
