How would you like to start your morning with a delicious gluten-free cilantro and cucumber juice? Juicing has become a popular option for people searching for a way to cleanse their body and lose weight. However, it also has benefits for people with celiac disease and gluten sensitivities.


Juicing can provide critical nutrients that are essential for staying healthy if you have celiac disease and gluten sensitivities. It makes it easier to get the recommended servings of fruits and vegetables every day by squeezing them into your diet in a concentrated fashion. Colorado State University recommends calcium-fortified juice and orange juice as part of a balanced nutrient-dense diet. Juicing has benefits ranging from building a stronger immune system to reducing inflammation in the body. It is essential to have a dedicated juicer in your kitchen that is not at risk of contamination with gluten because of other recipes your household may try.

Experts recommend a combination of fruits and vegetables for a better juice. If you only drink juice made from fruit, there is a strong chance your blood sugar could spike. They also suggest that juicing should not be a meal replacement, and you should vary the ingredients you use. It is also important to keep in mind that juicing eliminates the fiber from the fruits and vegetables, so you still need to eat an actual apple or snack on cherries. Nutritionists recommend saving the pulp from your juice, which is rich in fiber, to incorporate it into other recipes.

You may want to consider trying the gluten-free carrot, beet and apple juice recipe that promises a quick way to detox. Do you battle fatigue in the morning? Experts suggest that drinking juice on an empty stomach can give you a boost. You may want to try the sunshine juice recipe that relies on oranges, raspberries, bananas and mint, or consider the healthy green juice that mixes green apples, celery, cucumber, kale, lemon and ginger.
