Juicing with mostly fruits

Ask the Nutritionist

Posted by Heather on 4 years ago

I am finding it hard to make juices with mostly veggies instead of fruits. I love most vegetables (peas, asparagus, and brussel sprouts and celery are the only exceptions) but I hate the way they taste juiced. Before I started juicing I would enjoy eating raw carrots, tomatoes, broccoli, peppers and green beans plain without dip or anything. When I added broccoli, carrots or peppers to my juices they over powered the taste and its bitter and awful. The only vegetables I can handle in my juice are spinach, kale and sweet potatoes. I add the recommended amount of those three veggies into the juices that I make sometimes a little more just to get the extra veggies but I'm wondering if its unhealthy or bad that im eating mostly fruit juices that contain apples oranges, pears and pineapple. Also is it ok to ask a teaspoon of coconut oil to my juices and how often should I add it

Thanks

    Hey Heather, The main argument seems to be that fruit contains Sugar, therefor detoxing is not detoxing with so much sugar going in. The rule seems to be 80%/20% to veg. Also i would imagine weight loss slower with higher sugar!

    Dear Heather

    It is not advisable to consume too many fruits in your juice this creates too much of a sugar hit. Work on adding more vegetables slowly so your taste buds can accommodate the taste and change. Work on making the juice mostly the vegetables you like with some of the fruits and slowly work on adding the others in gradually. This works for many who don't like vegetables in anything. Taste buds change!!

    Adding coconut oil is a healthy supported addition.
