Juice Recipes for Energy

15 Juice Recipes for Energy

Juicing for energy is the number one reason I juice. When I replaced my morning coffee with these juice recipes for energy, magic started to happen. It never fails to give me this clean, long-lasting energy. When we want to feel alive, we need to consume “live foods”. By live foods, I mean foods that come out of the soil and are bursting with nutrients. Not cooked, but raw foods.

The best way to consume raw fruits and vegetables is to juice them. Drinking a few glasses a day will supply your body with all the vitamins and minerals your body needs.

Why Try Juice Recipes for Energy?

Before I started Juicing six years ago, I had a hard time getting out of bed in the morning. I was always looking for a quick fix and tried supplements to boost my energy. I would take enough supplements to supply a pharmacy, but nothing seemed to work.

Then I stumbled on juicing. I saw a documentary on Youtube, and I was hooked. I immediately went out that day and bought a juicer.

The first thing I noticed when I drank my first green juice was the energy it gave me. It didn’t feel like the energy you get from caffeine. It felt cleaner, and it lasted much longer. And the best part about this energy is that there was no crash.

It still amazes me how much better I feel now and how much more I get done.

Instant Energy

Drinking fresh vegetable juice will allow you to receive the benefits of more greens than you could chew in one day. You can get 4-5 cups of vegetables in a single cup of green juice! If you had to chew up a few stalks of celery and then eat a cucumber and a lemon, it would be quite daunting. But a juice made from these ingredients is easy to drink.

What I love about juicing is that it removes the fiber that is present in fruits and vegetables. That makes it much easier for your body to digest. The juicer does all the work for you. So, when you drink your glass of liquid energy, you feel it instantly. How’s that sound?

Ditch Grocery Store Juice

Freshly made juice is much better than any juice bought from the store. When juice sits in the fridge, it oxidizes and loses its nutrients. Plus fresh juice isn’t pasteurized to help it stay on the shelf longer. It is bursting with nutrients ready to energize your day.

Hydration is the Key

Adding fresh juices to your diet allows you to stay hydrated during your day. Hydration is key to staying energized. Even mild dehydration can lower your energy levels substantially.

Fruits or Vegetables?

Juicing for EnergyVegetables are always best when you’re juicing for energy. You’ll get many B vitamins from leafy greens. B vitamins are essential for the conversion of food into energy. The ones with the most intense green color contain a higher amount of nutrients. I am talking about the dark leafy greens such as kale, Swiss chard, and spinach. To get the most juice out of your veggies, you’ll need a good juicer for greens. Learn more: The Best Juicer for Leafy Greens.

Iron is another nutrient that is great for your energy levels. It helps to deliver oxygen to your cells and muscles. Iron is also used to metabolize food into energy. You can add iron to your juices by juicing parsley, beets and dark leafy greens.

Beets are perfect in any energy juice. They will boost your stamina. The nitrates in beets help to improve the oxygen delivery throughout your body. It not only makes exercising less tiring but will also help you in your daily activities.

If you’re new to juicing and struggling with the taste of vegetable juice, then read my guide How to Make Green Juice Taste Better. It’s always best to ease into juicing. Start with fruit juices, and then add more and more vegetables later on.

Juice Recipes for Energy

I divided my favorite 15 juice recipes for energy into two categories. 1-4 are juicing recipes for beginners, as they are 100% fruit juices. 5-15 are mostly vegetable juices, with some fruits added for flavor.

By adding just 1 or 2 juices per day to a balanced diet, you will see substantial energy improvements. It’s best to serve all juices immediately.

What Can You Do Besides Juicing for Energy?

Yoga is Great for Energy

➀ Control Stress

Stress consumes enormous amounts of energy. Meditation, positive thinking, and yoga are great tools for reducing stress.

➁ Exercise

A brisk walk may be better than a nap for fighting fatigue. Regular exercise can increase your energy levels naturally.

➂ Eat for Energy

It’s better to eat small meals than a few large meals a day. Eating foods with a low glycemic index may help you avoid the crash that occurs after eating junk. Check out: 100 Healthy Foods That Give You Energy.

➃ Get More Sleep

I know it can be tough to get 8 hours of sleep per night, but your body needs it.

➄ Drink More Water

Along with juice, make sure you’re drinking at least 64 ounces per day. Many water drinking remainder apps will remind you to stay hydrated throughout your day.

  3. Sukumar Thingom

    Really love this post. I have bookmarked it already for future reference. And looking at the simplicity of the recipes with which you can make juices, I do not know why we didn’t try it before. Till now, juice for us means the packed ones that we get from the grocery stores. It’s nice to note that these packed juices lose their nutrients when kept in the fridge. This, I never knew. The vegetable juice idea is interesting. Thanks for the article.
