Eventually I realized that I was making some big mistakes. Too much juice, to start with, and made from too much high-sugar, high-FODMAP fruit. I made some changes and now juicing is part of my everyday routine. My body craves it. Some days it still “sticks with me” a little longer than I’d like, but overall it’s been an amazing, healthy addition to my comprehensive management plan and very helpful for boosting my nutrition during pregnancy.
In this video, I show you how I make GP-friendly green juice, start to finish, and give you some tips as we go along. If you want to learn more about juicing (and blending!) as part of a gastroparesis-friendly diet — including choosing a juicer/blender, knowing what to use in your juices and smoothies, what to stay away from, etc. — definitely check out the GP-Friendly Juicing & Blending class I recently recorded. It comes with a 50-page eBook full of recipes and answers to your FAQs about juicing and blending with GP.
