Healthy Indian Drinks and Juices for Weight Loss
Healthy Indian Drinks and Juices for Weight Loss. Juicing has become a new concept to weight loss these days. While whole fruits should definitely be one’s preferred choice as they are have all the fiber intact, juices if made the right way and consumed in right quantities at right time will help in weight loss. It is said that early morning on an empty stomach is the best time to have a glass of health potion of juice. This will help you begin your day with a nutrient and energy boost and satiate you as well.

Choose Fruits Packed with Vitamin C for Indian drinks and Juices
Amla, grapefruit, orange, sweet lime, pomegranate, strawberry, black jamun are some of the healthier options to stock up in your refrigerator. These vitamin C rich fruits help build our immune system and ward of inflammation too. Try and avoid juicing them in a hopper as that would lead to a lot of fiber loss. Use a good quality juicer instead. These days many varieties of juicers are available which help to keep most of the fiber intact while juicing. Black Jamun Apple Drink, Amla Ginger Juice and Melon and Black Grape Juice are flavourful combos to start your day with and also a good swap to unhealthy calorie laden snacks in the evening.

Toss in Handful of Veggies Too for Indian drinks and Juices
Why only fruits should be added to a juicer? There are umpteen veggies which pair well with fruits. Red capsicum, broccoli, cucumber, tomato, beetroot, carrot and greens like spinach are a few to name which top this list.
Broccoli and Pear Juice
These are not only commonly available but liked by most too. You can benefit from the antioxidants they offer like carotenoids from carrot, lycopene from tomato, lutein from broccoli and so on…. These juices will accelerate your metabolism and aid in burning fat. A few suggested fruit-veggie combos include Muskmelon and Cucumber Juice, Broccoli and Pear Juice and Palak Kale and Apple Juice.

Use a tsp of honey if need be as taste and flavour enhancer.

In reality, you can explore a variety of flavours with greens like lettuce, spinach (Spinach and Mint Juice), broccoli, mint, celery, cucumber (Cucumber Cooler) etc. Each of them have their own peculiar taste.

To further enhance the flavour, toss in some more ingredients like ginger, lemon or fresh herbs like parsley. Ginger will add on gingerol which is a powerful antioxidant again and lemon will show its health magic by way of adding vitamin C, another potent antioxidant. All these will help build a strong immune system and build a healthy YOU!
