Green juice recipes are probably the best choice when it comes to
adopting a lower carb diet as they can be easily made from lower carb
Green juice recipes can also be a part of a healthy detox diet to help keep your body clean and less acidic.
The health benefits of celery can make it a great addition to your green juice recipes. One of the really nice health benefits of celery is having a mild diuretic effect which can aid with weight loss.
And the health benefits of parsley also make it a great choice for making a green juice recipes, but you will have to be careful with this powerful herb.
Green Juice Recipes with Celery
If you want lower carb green juice recipes, just increase the amount of celery and cucumber. Also, decrease the amount of green apple (preferably) and pineapple.
BTW, the citric acid found in lemons and pineapple helps to balance out oxalic acid which is a problem in green juice recipes.
