Detox Diet: Juice Fasting Recipes

Posted by juicefastingrecipes on Dec 13, 2010 1:56:54 AM

Juice fasting is gaining popularity as a great way to detoxify.  Many people are interested in getting toxins out of their system so they  can live a healthier life. When toxins accumulate in the body, they  feel sluggish and also have a poor immune system. Juice fasting, as a  cleansing method, can help to people to achieve better health and more  energy. It is quite easy to do as fruits are readily obtainable and all  that is required additionally is a juicer.

For a beginner to juice  fasting, it is important to start out slow and to try it out for one  day. By juice fasting, you are limiting your intake to juices only.  Fruit juice is high in sugar, so if you are a diabetic or otherwise in  need of monitoring your sugar intake you should be cautious of trying a  juice fast with fruit juices. Anyone just starting out with fasting  should always speak with their doctor first. Also, do not juice fast for  prolonged periods like more than 3 days, not unless your doctor agrees  that it is safe for you to do so.

The following are sample recipes that can help give you an idea of combinations of fruits and vegetables to use together:

Recipe 1: Vegetable Juice Combo

2 Swiss chard leaves

1/2 beetroot

2 or 3 sprigs of watercress

3 carrots

1 celery stalk

Wash with filtered or distilled water, cut and put in juicer.

Recipe 2: Carrot-Apple Juice

2-3 Green Apples

1 carrot

Fresh basil leaves

Wash with filtered or distilled water, cut and put in juicer.

Recipe 3: Carrot-Vegetable Juice

A handful of dandelion leaves

1 kale leaf

4 carrots

Fresh mint, basil or coriander leaves

Wash with filtered or distilled water, cut and put in juicer.

Recipe 4: Peach Juice

2 or 3 peaches

Wash with filtered or distilled water, cut and put in juicer.

There  are many different types of juice fasts. Some diets call for fruit  juices while others used less sugary vegetable juices. You can always  come up with your own unique combination of fruit and vegetable juice  diet recipes.
