Juicing is a process that involves the staple veggies I reach for often like cucumbers, carrots apples, leafy greens, sweet potatoes, and beets. When I’m ready to add some variety, I’m searching for any and everything I can get my hands on in the refrigerator. This has me wondering about what fruit or vegetables I shouldn’t juice.
Certain fruits and vegetables aren’t suitable for juice simply because it’s not possible to extract juice very efficiently, such as bananas and berries. But I was particularly concerned about the potential negative consequences of juicing certain vegetables.
We’ll go over those vegetables which should not be juiced due to reasons of health, and also the ones that do not produce enough juice. Many of the responses I came across amazed me!

Vegetables that should not be Juiced every day
Spinach is a source of oxalates, and raw Kale is a source of goitrogens. Oxalates can also be found in mangoes, bananas cauliflower, and many more. Goitrogens can be found in raw cruciferous veggies and may affect the thyroid gland in significant quantities.
It’s when you consume large quantities that you could be faced with problems (exceptions to this rule are discussed in the following section). Vegans who are plant-based must be conscious of goitrogens and oxalates as they tend to consume large quantities of the fruits and vegetables that are contaminated with them.
The moral is that diversity is your best friend. Many of the problems that come with drinking too much juice from any vegetable will only occur when you consume large amounts of the vegetable on a regular basis throughout the day. If you take the time to have a variety of food and drinks It’s very unlikely that you’ll suffer from any health issues from the juice of fruits or vegetables.
Vegetables that should not be consumed if…
If you have a problem with the thyroid, it’s likely to Avoid eating large quantities of raw cruciferous veggies, like broccoli, cabbage, and kale. In large quantities, they can cause disruption to the thyroid gland. Anyone suffering from thyroid issues must consult their physician and be aware when eating raw cruciferous vegetables.
You may experience a bloating sensation in your stomach. If you notice that you are bloated when drinking juices you should consider decreasing the number of cruciferous vegetables such as kale, or Bok Choy. Although these are great vegetables in terms of health benefits, they can cause some people to feel bloated raw. If this is the case considering steaming these veggies, then light could be a good way to get their nutritional value.
If you have or had KIDNEY STONES Oxalates that are present in fruits like cherries, bananas, mangoes, raw spinach chard, and many more may cause or worsen kidney stones when consumed in large quantities. They can also hinder calcium absorption and iron absorption which is also the case when consumed in large quantities. For the majority of people, Oxalates won’t be a problem. But, it’s important to be aware of the food you’re eating and the juice you’re making to ensure that you’re getting various nutrients.
You’re managing blood sugar: Increase your fruits and vegetable ratio and steer clear of fruit such as mango, pineapple, pears, and other fruits that are especially rich in sugar. It’s also recommended to consult your physician about juicing prior to beginning.

I usually use kale as my morning drink, swapping it for spinach once or twice per week. You can however make use of chard, bok choy wheatgrass, bok choy, and many more. One thing to be aware of is that greens with Oxalates (spinach or chard) should not be used as frequently.
