Think back to all the times you reached for a snack to satisfy your cravings. If you’re like most people, it’s highly unlikely the snacks were carrot sticks, stalks of celery, or raw broccoli. While some people actually enjoy consuming vegetables, for the majority, it’s a chore we know we need to do. In this post, we’re sharing some healthy vegetable detox juice ideas that are actually enjoyable and can be prepared in as little as five minutes.
You might be familiar with celery from the times you used to dip it in peanut butter as a kid. But you probably don’t know its potential when it comes to hydration and weight loss. Celery helps restore hydrochloric acid, aiding digestion. It also lowers blood pressure and aids the liver, among having several other benefits.
How to Make Celery Juice
Grab a bunch of celery, cut the base to separate the stalks, and wash them thoroughly. Chop them and add them to a blender with about ¼ cup of water. Blend and enjoy. If you’re not a fan of plain celery like many people, add a healthy fruit, like an apple, to sweeten it up.
No two green drinks are alike. Since leafy greens are the best vegetable for weight loss, your best bet is to add a mixture of as many as you can. Spinach, kale, cabbage, you name it! Upgrade your green drink with something fruity like apples, pears, or cucumbers.
Beets aren’t only great for weight loss and maintaining your weight, they can also help lower blood pressure. Beets are loaded with zinc, potassium, iron, and vitamin B, so if you’re a fan of this vibrant vegetable, you’re in luck.
How to Make Beetroot Juice
Wash, peel, and cut your beets into small pieces before juicing them. Beets are one of the sweeter vegetables so you can add a touch of lemon or ginger to the recipe for balance.
