Juice Recipes for Diabetics

 

What is diabetes?



Diabetes is a disease whereby the pancreas does not generate enough insulin to keep blood sugar levels at a safe level.

 

Causes of type 2 diabetes


It is believed that type 2 diabetes is generally brought on by a poor diet consisting of processed foods, high sugar levels and not enough exercise.

Recommended foods for type 2 diabetics (and type 1)


The best raw foods for diabetics are cabbage, avocado and spinach and it is important to eat a diet mainly consisting of vegetables with minimal fruit due to the high levels of natural sugars. Pears contain levulose rather than fructose, and levulose is a safer fruit sugar for diabetics so you can eat a few of these each week. Remember to also get at least 30 minutes exercise each day.

Cut out all processed foods and refined sugars.
