Low Sugar Green Juice

By: Stacy Kennedy, MPH, RD, CSO, LDN; Reboot Nutritionist

Looking for a refreshing juice that’s low in carbohydrates but rich in nutrients?  If you have Type 2 diabetes, high blood sugar, pre-diabetes, or are simply looking to cut down even on natural sweets this juice is for you. The minty, tart flavor is light and satisfying.  Mint provides some omega-3 fats important for helping to reduce inflammation and promote brain health.  Cucumber is great for skin, naturally low in calories, high in vitamin K which is important for blood clotting and bones and high in folate and vitamin C.
