When you first start juicing vegetables, you probably will use the recipes that came with your machine. A lot of these use carrots as a base of sweetness. This is ok, except if you are aiming to eat more alkaline. For those people, you will want to gradually reduce your dependency on sweet vegetables. What you will probably find is that after a few days your taste buds will start to come alive. You will begin to taste flavors in the juice that you may not have ever noticed. In fact, once this happens, you will really notice the overpowering strength of processed sugar. In fact, it may lose its appeal, which is a secondary goal for someone on a alkaline diet.
Once you get more experience at juicing vegetables, you are more likely to want to try more exotic drinks that do not have the sweetness you used to desire. One really good vegetable to add at this stage is jicama. This potato looking vegetable is extremely fresh tasting, very juicing and slightly sweet. Unlike a potato, it is excellent to eat raw, either in a salad or by juicing it.

itself. No matter why you are interested in starting to juice vegetables, the best thing to do is start slow. Gradually increase the amount you drink and wean yourself off processed foods. The results on your body just might amaze you.
