Let’s be honest, most people don’t like eating their veggies. We can snack on fruits all day long but when it comes down to eating broccoli or kale, we struggle. Thank goodness for juicing!

Drinking veggie juice actually helps your body absorb nutrients better and more easily than eating cooked vegetables. Plus, you don’t have to struggle to enjoy it.

Today we're sharing our favorite vegetable juice recipe for you to try. But first, let's examine the benefits.

why drink vegetable juice?

Did you know that the average person should consume two cups of fresh vegetable juice every day? I know what you’re thinking: that sounds like a lot. Even if you can only manage one cup of juice a day (or every other day), it’s worth it. Some of the health benefits of drinking green vegetable juice include:

Lowers Risk of Chronic Disease

Vegetable juice is high in antioxidants including vitamin A, beta-carotene, lycopene, phenolic compounds, and phytonutrients. These antioxidants can help your body fight off the risk of healthy cells turning into cancerous cells. It can also lower your risk of diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and even some autoimmune diseases.

Improves Heart Health

Potassium, iron, and vitamin C can help stimulate proper circulation, improve the amount of collagen in your body, lower your blood pressure, and reduce the risk of damaged blood vessels and arteries.

Improve Skin & Hair

Drinking vegetable juice regularly can help reduce the look of blemishes, acne, wrinkles, age spots, eczema, rosacea, and psoriasis. The nutrients also help prevent hair loss and will give you lush long healthy hair!

Supports Detoxification

Whether you went out and binged for a weekend or you’re just looking to jump-start a new diet to help with weight loss, vegetable juice supports the detox process within your body. This is especially true for your liver.

Pro Tips

  • Juice the cucumber with the peel on (remove if not organic), the peel contains beta-carotene, an important antioxidant that the body converts to Vitamin A. Clean with antimicrobial wash to remove any wax.
  • Peel the lemon if you prefer a lighter flavor. For stronger flavored or full bodied juices, grind these with the peel on. Experiment with using peeled lemons and with leaving the peels on, notice the difference in flavor.
  • Leave the stems on the leafy greens – they typically contain a lot of flavor and juice. Coming from the farm, leafy greens usually have the most dirt on the leaves and need to be thoroughly washed.
