The key to increasing your energy levels through food—versus the standard route of swilling caffeine-packed beverages—lies in maintaining a diet rich in B vitamins. And vitamin B6, folate (B9), niacin (B3), and thiamin (B1) are the heavy-hitters when it involves boosting stamina. This suggests that to stay energy reserves high, you will need to consume your fair share of fruits and veggies alongside protein-packed foods (like lean meats) to make sure you’re sufficiently stimulated which you remain in fighting form.
These juicing recipes are nearly as good for you as they’re delicious and may be enjoyed as either a wake-up tonic or a day refresher. Live nutrients and enzymes in juices and smoothies feed every cell in your body, while liquids from the fruits you’re using keep you hydrated, and that’s a much better method of staying awake and energetic than knocking back all those dehydrating coffees.
For you to make these juicing recipes you’ll need a juicer, a blender or kitchen appliance, fresh fruits and vegetables, various sorts of milk, herbs, and spices because the recipes require.
Best energy boost
Instead of a humongous cup, try a green juice instead. Chlorophyll, the green pigment in plants, helps oxygenate the blood, creating increased brain function and physical energy
1 large cucumber
8 stalks celery
1 handful kale
1 handful spinach
1 handful parsley
1/4 lemon (with rind if organic)
1-inch piece ginger
Morning Sunshine Smoothie
Packed with vitamin C, this sweet and tangy citrus smoothie will inspire smiles on even the rainiest morning.
2-3 freshly-juiced tangerines
1 ruby red grapefruit (juiced)
A handful of frozen strawberries
Peel and juice the tangerines with the grapefruit, and puree the blended juice with the frozen strawberries.
A boost for your sex life
Celery contains an ingredient that increases those well-known pheromones in men. Watermelon helps to relax the blood vessels that increase drive, and avocados contain a B-complex vitamin said to spice up male hormone production.
2 cups coconut milk or burn plant juice
2 stalks celery
1 small piece of ginger
1 handful basil
Anti Aging juice
Stress, free-radicals, and lack of exercise and sleep can cause visible aging. It’s recommended to include antioxidant-packed fruits and veggies when juicing for health.
1 1/2 cups liquid of your choice (water, any quite milk, or burn plant juice)
1 cup blueberries
1/2 cup strawberries
1 large leaf kale (thick stem removed)
1/2 medium beet
Minted cocktail Juice
1 apple, peeled, cored, and sliced
1 orange, peeled and divided
1/2 cup pineapple
2 cups watermelon, cubed and seeded
1 teaspoon juice
A small sprig of fresh mint
Juice the apple and orange first, followed by the pineapple. Transfer juice to a blender, and add the watermelon, juice, and mint. Puree until smooth.
Don´t forget, the juice may be a concentrated source of calories that’s easy to consume during a few gulps and contains little or no filling fiber. And since it’s digested faster than solid food, it causes a rapid increase in blood glucose. Drinking an excessive amount of juice, especially fruit crush, can contribute to weight gain and has even been linked to type 2 diabetes.
