Juicing is something I have been getting into a bit more lately.
I feel so much healthier drinking all of my vitmains rather than ingesting it in a pill form.
WHICH BTW if you are taking a multi vitamin - put it in water.
If it doesn't desolve --- toss it. Also watch out for fillers like rice flour ect.
You don't want that.
ANYWAYS this isn't about multivitamins this is about my joy for juice!
Keep in mind - juice is a CARB.
If you choose a juice drop the bagle, oatmeal, or what ever carby side you were going to eat.
Or have them both - it is totally up to you!
This is one of my favorite recipes:
- 1/2 beet
- 2 celery sticks
- 2 carrots
- 1/2 red pepper
- 1 orange
- 1/2 inch ginger
- 1/2 lemon
BEST TIME TO HAVE JUICE:
WHY?: During workouts insulin levels may drop (this can cause dizziness) which is why you want to consume foods that are higher on the glycemic index post workout because it will bring your insulin level back to a more stable level.
another tip: if you feel dizzy during your whole workout I encourgae you to put honey in your water. that will also help with insulin levels.
I generrally consume my juice with a lean protein source directly after my workout during myanabolic window!
I am not a big fan of "juice cleanses" because it is something that you cannot do FOREVER -- I always believe if it is something that you cant work into your life forever there is no point in starting it now. Drinking juice every day all day in my opion would be something that would be hard to maintain for a life time. Drinking one juice a day or every other day is more my lingo.
