Hi,


Can anyone recommend a juice or smoothie that is good for diabetics? Its not for me, for my mom. I hear beets are good for kidneys. Could anyone tell me a good blend for beets?


Thanks

I would favor Celery Juice with Greens juiced in.
Stay away from Carrot Juice and all Fruit Juices.....WY

I just bought a bunch of beets and last night juiced a small beet with its attached greens with a few organic carrots and a couple stalks of rhubarb (since I still have it in the garden). I'm always doing carrots, not that I'm that concerned about blood sugar but have always been interested in the Glycemic Group, and I started out over at Hacres where carrot juice rules --

[www.hacres.com]

The Hacres study found that carrots indeed have a high glycemic index but is fine in the amounts they recommend (up to a cup at a time or so?, I forget). I don't think the researcher there ever came to realize that carrots have a bit of starch in them, and that might account for the high GI (starch is chains of glucose). It's the glycemic Load that matters most though and I think that came through in the study... Everyone's different. A diabetic person will probably want to check their blood sugar to see their response to new ways of eating.

Oh, here's roughly what they say --

For diabetics start with 4 oz carrot juice and 4 oz water, though some diabetics do fine starting with 8 oz straight carrot juice.

Oh, and they are a bit biased over there at Hacres though I still love them.

What kind of "greens" would you recommend? I'm barely starting on this diet so I don't know much. I have some wheatgrass, kale, I tried getting some dandelion green but they were all out at the store.

I was just recently researching this for myself. I concluded with carrot-kale-celery-lemon-cabbage, in equal amount. I have not made it. It may taste a little challenging, but that is just a guess.
