Juice Recipes for Pregnancy


The importance of juicing has been highlighted many times in my previous posts; Green Juice Recipes, Jay Kordich – Juice Recipes, Detox Juice Recipes and Juice Recipes for Aliments.

Juicing for pregnant women is even more important. The instant rush of nutrients in your system will help you and your baby stay nourished and feeling clean…

Here are a few juice recipes I personally am trying through my journey in pregnancy and are really doing wonders to my overall health.

Pregnant women require a lot of vitamins and nutrients to support their growing baby… this juice recipe contains a plethora of nutritious elements… Oranges are well known for their high concentration of vitamin C, but the citrus fruit also contains many other vitamins and nutrients. Oranges also contain vitamin A, many of the B vitamins, and vitamin E, making them a regular part of a healthy and balanced diet (read more). Kale is very high in beta carotene, vitamin K, vitamin C, lutein, zeaxanthin, and reasonably rich in calcium. Spinach and Asparagus are extremely rich in antioxidants and are also a good source of vitamin A and C as well as being rich in folate and fiber.

Most pregnant women suffer from nausea and vomiting throughout their first trimester… try the apple, celery and a bit of ginger juice and you’ll automatically feel better.

One extra annoyance during pregnancy is constipation. The release of pregnancy hormones relax the bowel and alter the digestive system while prenatal vitamins further contribute to constipation and bloating. Try the two recipes above. My personal recommendation is to eat a big bowl or two of salad daily… it will help you overcome this bloated feeling and keep you regulated throughout your pregnancy.

Folates are crucial for pregnancy especially in the beginning. I had this juice when I was in my first few weeks of pregnancy. I blended a banana with the juice mixture and it turned out to be an excellent recipe.

Bottom line… pregnant or not, you can utilize the above recipes to improve your vitamin intake and overall nutritional health.

Drink first thing in the morning on an empty stomach. Fresh lemon juice purifies the blood by removing metabolic waste and by changing blood pH from acid to alkaline. (from: knowyourgut)

Jay Kordich – Juice Recipes


When I first got acquainted with juicing and juice recipes , Jay Kordich was my reference… Jay Kordich, the father of juicing, who has overcome illness with juicing and a raw food diet has dedicated his life to teaching people the powers hidden in juicing… Now at 89 years old he is still active in his mission to educate the world about healthy living… Here are some of Jay Kordich’s great juice recipes…

Pears help regulate your digestive system… pear and apple stimulate the intestinal wall to keep you regulated… (from http://youtu.be/YVnX4sR5W5c)

Who wouldn’t like a good cup of cold lemonade in the summer time?… Try this recipe to nourish your body and quench your thirst… (from http://youtu.be/g3XvPZQY8F0)

Jay Kordich makes a drink that has been proven in medical research to cure stomach ulcers within 7 days. He mixes cabbage, carrot, celery, a combination shown to be more palatable than straight cabbage juice for most people… (from: http://youtu.be/OBuIiviFH2Q)- Jay emphasizes, though that it’s important to consume the cabbage juice within one minute after making, or else it will quickly lose the medicinal properties. (thanks Jeff Batter)

One of the power house drinks of all time…  the raw potassium broth feeds every cell in your body and nourishes your circulatory system… it is essential to our health because it has a  high density of nutrients per calorie… (from: http://youtu.be/xg0CMXMbD68)

Your liver is one of the most important organs you have to really take care of. It’s a key organ in the human body for maintaining optimal health. Jay makes a drink with beet and apple that helps to clean and nourish the liver.
