Healthy Green JuiceHealthy Green Juice

As a part of my healthy lifestyle, I frequently enjoy a Healthy Green Juice.  The key to a Healthy vs Un-Healthy Green juice is making sure that you aren’t including too much fruit or root vegetables. If your juice contains too many fruits, it will be both higher in calories and sugar (fructose – I recommend keeping your daily fructose consumption to 25g per day or less) – which defeats the purpose of juicing for health benefits.

When I first started juicing several years ago, most of my juices were mostly fruit.. but over time I gradually transitioned less fruit and more vegetables. It can take a little while to get used to the flavors and no longer anticiapte a sweet-treat from your juice.
