Alright folks, as promised from my last post that I will share some of my favorite juicing recipes. I will give you my top 3 favorite juicing recipes. They are my favorite for several reasons. They are easy to make, delicious, and more importantly these juice significantly helped my high blood pressure and cholesterol.
In order to be able to make these nutritious juice recipes, you will definitely need a juicer machine. I prefer that you use a masticating juicer to extract the juice mainly because a slow juicer gives the highest yield of juice. However, other juicing machines will also work. If you currently do not have a juicer, I would advise you to research the best juicers for your needs. Go to http://juicermarket.com since the person running that site gives an honest and thorough review of the different juicing extractors available on the market.
Most of you that are reading this post are interested in juicing because of the health benefits that it provides. No doubt about it, juicing is not a fad. It’s a big part of why I lost a lot of weight. Let’s face it, there’s not many people that can eat 3 to 5 fruits a day along with several vegetables. Juicing makes it easy to digest all this every single day. This is not really a diet, since you are not starving yourself. We all know diets don’t last.
Since I’ve started juicing, I’ve noticed I have a lot more energy. Before I would crash after a big meal. Research studies have also shown that drinking juice can help with better sleep. I can tell you I’ve had a deeper sleep since I’ve started juicing.
Another benefit of juicing is it is easy. I’m all about simplicity. Just turn on your juicing machine and put in your fruits and vegetables. No need to buy any special ingredients and complicated cooking recipes. My family and friends know that I am not the best cook so if I can manage to master juicing, so can you.
Essentially all fruits and vegetables are beneficial but there are several that are particularly have the right nutrients to fight high blood pressure and cholesterol. Here are my fruit and vegetable suggestions:
- Any green leafy vegetables
- Any berries
Out all of them, I particularly like blueberries, kiwifruit, and beetroots. Blueberries are not only delicious but they contain anthocyanins that help lower blood pressure. Kiwifruit also contains the right nutrients for healthy blood cells. Beetroots is also a favorite of mine. Study research has shown that beetroots can instantly lower blood pressure.
Without further ado, here are my top 3 juicing recipes.
- Healthy Beetroot Juice Recipe – this recipe has a healthy amount of beetroot.
- 1 beetroot
