Health Benefits of Raw Juicing
The following free diabetes juicing recipes (from the Power of Juicing ebook) will help to better manage your Type 2 diabetes, especially when these raw juices are combined with the diabetes diet & nutritional program.
These recipes will also help to cleanse and detox your cells and tissues to remove the accumulated toxins and chemicals, which may impair the body's healing and repair processes.
Make sure that you eat (and drink) lots of green vegetables, e.g. broccoli, Brussels sprouts, celery, cucumber, kale, parsley, spinach, watercress, wheatgrass, etc.
Also, make sure that you avoid eating pasta, rice, potatoes, corn, and processed foods made with flour, wheat, gluten, sugar, corn syrup, and partially hydrogenated oils (trans fats).
And, don't forget to avoid most bottled and processed beverages, e.g. fruit juices, coffee, cow's milk, soda, diet soda, etc.
General Suggestion: Drink the raw juice 30 minutes before your meal to maximize its absorption and benefits.

Note: If you juice regularly, make sure that you are not replacing your "super" meals such as steamed vegetables, whole raw vegetables and green, leafy salads with juices. Juices should be used primarily as a complement to your meal -- not as a replacement. (However, a green smoothie can be used as a replacement meal because it contains everything that's in the meal including carbs, fats, proteins, water, and fiber).
Start slowly with juicing by drinking a small glass (4 to 8 oz.) of fresh raw juice 30 minutes before breakfast.
Then, add drinking a small glass of fresh raw juice 30 minutes before lunch and dinner, if possible.
If you get tired of juicing, then, try a green smoothie instead.
