Green Juice Recipes
and A Healthy Detox Diet

Green juice recipes can be a part of a healthy detox diet to help keep your body clean. 

Green juice recipes are probably the best when it comes to adopting a healthy detox diet plan.

And the health benefits of celery can make it a great addition to your healthy detox diet juice.  One of the really nice health benefits of celery is having a mild diuretic effect which can aid with weight loss.

The health benefits of parsley also make it a great choice for making a green juice, but you will have to be careful with this powerful herb.

Green Juice Recipes

Ingredients:

  • 3 Big Leaves of Kale
  • 1 Red Apple
  • 1/2 Lemon
  • Nob of Ginger
  • 1/3 Cucumber
  • 1 Broccoli Stalk

The citric acid found in lemons and in pineapple helps to balance out oxalic acid.

Health Benefits of Parsley

  • Good source of vitamin C
  • High in Potassium
  • Good source of folic acid
  • Natural Diuretic
  • Helps high blood pressure

  • Good source of beta carotene

This herb is one of the most popular and has been used since ancient Roman and Greek times.

You can find flat leaf or curly leaf parsley at most grocery or health food stores these days.

Important Note:  Parsley contains a good amount of oxalic acid which could help to form kidney stones if consumed in large amounts for a long period of time.

And oxalic acid binds to important minerals like calcium and can make them unavailable for use in your body.

A handful a day should provide the health benefits of parsley without harmful health problems.
