Why Make Juice Cleanse Smoothie Recipes?
There are so many reasons to make juice cleanse smoothie recipes for breakfast, or even for another time of day. The average American gets way too little in the way of fruits and vegetables, so that is a huge reason to make juice smoothies. The other thing is, every time you take some juice, you are usually eating less of another food that isn't as healthy for you. By swapping a drive-through breakfast sandwich for a juice smoothie, you are reducing the junk food you are taking in, all while boosting up your vitamin and mineral intake!
Most folks who juice mention that they have so much more energy, that they feel and look better, and that they get sick less often. They also find a reduction in aches and pains, and their injuries tend to heal faster.
The Bottom Line
Taking the time to make juice cleanse smoothies is totally worth it! Once you settle into a routine, it's easy. In addition to taking one at breakfast, you might try having one to bridge the gap between lunch and dinner - a time when many succumb to unhealthy snacking. Once you start juicing, I bet you won't stop! You can follow these juice cleanse smoothie recipes listed above, or simply get creative and make up your own! There really are no rules, other than if you are looking to drop weight, stick with a larger percentage of vegetables than fruits to keep the total sugar content down.
