Veggie juice recipes are a relatively lower calorie way to enjoy the benefits of juicing without the guilt. Because most vegetables don’t have as much sugar as fruits, veggie juice is a great addition to weight loss plans and fitness programs. Many juice cleanse recipes and detox juice recipes are vegetable based for many of these same reasons. Because many vegetables are alkaline, many veggie juice recipes are great addition for people sticking to alkaline-based diets.
Veggies are also loaded with important vitamins, minerals and antioxidants and are often much more nutrient dense than their fruit counterparts.
