3 Ways to Add Green Juice to Your Diet

green juice with pineapple

Green juice makes getting your fruits and vegetables easier.

Whether you’re new to healthy eating or you’re already a nutrition wiz, green juice is a simple way to add a few more servings of fruits and vegetables to your diet. Green vegetables, in particular, are full of minerals and vitamins. Plus, with the helpful addition of sweet pineapple, these juices go from simply nutritious to refreshing and delicious.

Why Green Juice is a Go

Green juices usually get their color from the inclusion of a dark leafy green like spinach or kale. Full of nutrients like magnesium, iron, and vitamin A, these greens can stimulate blood flow and provide the body with a bit more energy. If you’re trying to avoid caffeine jitters, green juice may be an alternative. Additions of celery or cucumber provide the blend with other vitamins and antioxidants. Plus, with only 12.2% of adults reaching the daily fruit intake recommendation and only 9.3% consuming enough vegetables, green juices may be a great on-the-go option to shift our produce eating habits.

What to Know Before You Juice

Though green juice is a great way to add some more nutrients to your diet, it’s important to remember that it isn’t a meal replacement. Instead, try enjoying a green juice with a bowl of yogurt for breakfast or as a mid-afternoon treat, and make sure to eat several servings of whole fruits and vegetables each day too.
