Juicing tips and tricks
Use high-water content vegetables as a base, such as cucumbers and celery. These will not only add more volume, but help dilute more potent juices.
Include fruits and vegetables high in manganese, as this mineral helps reduce insulin resistance. These include parsley, carrots, cabbage, collard greens, endive, beet greens, broccoli and spinach.
Avoid the highest-sugar fruits, such as pineapple and mango. These juices can contain up to eight teaspoons of sugar each.
Both asparagus and green beans contain several compounds that help stabilize blood sugar. To sweeten juices, add lower-sugar fruits such as green apple and kiwi. Berries are also a good option, particularly blueberries which are high in manganese.
Select herbs and spices for added flavor. Cinnamon is proven to help stabilize blood sugar when consumed consistently, and other flavorful ingredients to try include parsley, ginger, cilantro and fennel.
