Healthy Juice Recipes Juice Recipes Google+0Facebook9Twitter0Pinterest4LinkedIn0Juicing is great for your overall health, but if I’m being totally honest – it’s vanity that inspires me most. As someone who spent her 20s struggling with acne and is now in her 30s and concerned about aging gracefully, I’ll be the first to admit that I intentionally choose juicing recipes for skin care purposes. No shame in that. So if you’re juicing for your skin as well – here are some of my favorite picks. Try them out, they’re yummy (except for the last one – that one’s not for newbies). Spicy Sweet Potato: A Delicious Skin Care Juice One thing I never understood about the world was…why the h*ll do potatoes get all the attention when their sweeter cousin is so much hotter in terms of nutritional content? This delicious juice recipe is in celebration of the underrated sweet potato. Let us sing its glories for a bit… Sweet potatoes = beta carotene! Just one medium sweet potato provides your body with the complete recommended daily allowance of vitamin A. If you’re juicing for acne – this is great news. Potato’s sweeter cousin is also brimming with vitamin B6 to keep your artery walls flexible and healthy, potassium to regulate fluid balance and lower blood pressure, manganese to promote healthy blood sugar levels, and even more antioxidants – Vitamins C & E to top off its health benefit resume. Now throw some carrots and ginger into the mix and you’ve got yourself a party! Note: Just tried this recipe with pineapples – cores and all – instead of carrots and It. Is. Seriously. Good. Just thought you should know 😉 Green Goddess: A Green Juice Recipe Fit for a Goddess Did you know that cucumber peels are made of silica, which is an important building block of the skin-plumping, wrinkle-preventing collagen? Just one cucumber with peel on gives you around five milligrams of silica. Cucumbers are also incredibly hydrating – which is a simple but crucial antidote to wrinkles. Spinach and cancer-fighting watercress are chock full of chlorophyll, which provides ample skin benefits and carrots, of course, are infamous for their beta-carotene (which converts to the more familiar vitamin A, an important antioxidant and acne-buster). Spring Chicken: A Veggie Juicing Recipe for Youthful Skin SPRING CHICKEN is a great anti aging juice that’s both chock full of nutrients and easy to make. Swiss chard is full of helpful chlorophyll and carrots hold their own in antioxidant powers (hello, vitamin A). And eggplants are an amazing source of Vitamin K, Thiamin, Vitamin B6, Folate, Potassium and Manganese…this could be a post on its own. The sweetness of the carrots serve to mask the bitterness of Swiss chard and the eggplant serves as a nutritious base. [ois skin=”3″] Want a free book of healthy juice rECIPES?
