Juice Fasting Recipes
Juice fasts can be good for jumpstarting a new, healthy diet or for simply cleansing your system of built-up toxins. The key is to get as much variety in your juicing recipes as possible, as this helps to ensure that your body has everything it needs to run efficiently.
Some juice fasting recipes call for the same type of ingredients and are very strict about not varying too far. The master cleanse is an example of a famous but more structured cleanse which uses a lemonade diet juice as the principle recipe.
However many of the new theories on juice fasting or juice cleansing programs encourage variety. This not only helps to keep the juice fast interesting but also allows for a broad range of nutrition. Mix it up with a tall fruit blend for breakfast, a spicy vegetable blend for lunch, or an Italian-style juice fast recipe for dinner!
Just a note: If you have to make any of these in advance, add the juice of half of a lemon to prevent the ingredients from oxidizing.
Breakfast Peach Berry Orange Blend
2 peaches, pits removed
1 peeled orange
1/2 cup raspberries
Push the fruit through your juicer, then mix in 1/2 cup of water or coconut water to dilute it.
Spicy Lunchtime Blend
2 medium green peppers, stems, seeds, and membranes removed
2 green onions
3 large tomatoes
1/2 jalapeno, seeded ( use sparingly if you are sensitive to spiciness)
Handful of cilantro, finely diced
Hot sauce, to taste ( if needed)
Lime juice, to taste
Push all of the vegetables through the juicer and then stir in the cilantro. Add the juice of one lime and hot sauce until it’s just as spicy as you like it!
Italian Dinner Juice Fast Recipe
1 handful Spinach
3 medium size carrots
2 bell peppers, any color
Handful of flat leaf parsley
1 stalk celery
2 large tomatoes
4 basil leaves
Push all of the vegetables through the juicer and then roughly chop the parsley and basil. Stir these in and enjoy!
There are many popular juicing fasting programs that you can order from local juice locations or health food restaurants that will actually deliver fresh fasting juices in a great variety. Entire companies have been started around this popular fasting trend.
Be careful when you decide to start any fasting program and it is best to check with your doctor if you have any concerns. Don’t be surprised if get a headache or feel week on a fasting program both from lack of calories, but also because you could get a headache from the toxins being released during the fast.
