JUICE BOX: A DAY OF JUICE

juice box 1 day cleanse

So yesterday was a day of juice.  And nothing else.  My brother has been raving about the benefits of juicing for well over a year.  He decided to do a massive juice cleanse after watching Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead.  I have not seen the movie and, frankly, am a little frightened to watch it!  My brother loves the way he feels when he is “juicing” and he looks healthier than ever.  Of course when any one is looking great, you are tempted to try it too!  Not willing to invest the money in an expensive juicer, I decided to try a local company that presses their own juice and delivers!  I ordered a 1-day juice cleanse from Juice Box {Seattle}.  I considered doing a three day cleanse, but thought it might be smart to try it for just a day and see how it goes.  You can do anything for a day, right?

My juice was delivered to me in the morning.  The cleanse includes six-16 oz juice bottles.  You are to drink them throughout the day.  No food, just juice and water.  Have you considered doing a juice cleanse? Wondering how it went for me?

1.  96 oz of juice is a lot of juice to drink.  I was going pee about every five minutes.

2.  I did not feel hungry during the day, which was a pleasant surprise.  I was famished around 7:30pm.

3.  Not surprisingly, the juice largely consisting of fruit juices were delicious.  My favorite was carrot, orange, turmeric root.

4.  I was completely scared of the green juice.  Maybe a pretty glass and cute straw would make it easier to drink?  Kale, romaine, celery, cucumber, spinach, apple, lemon.  Nope, not even the stripey-paper straw helped with this one.  I am not a fan.

5.   I worked out {a barre class} and had plenty of energy.

6.  Almond milk with local raw honey, cinnamon, and nutmeg was delicious for lunch.

Could I do it for two more days?  Probably.  {My brother did his cleanse for 10 days. That’s just plain nuts.}  If you are interested in learning more about a juice cleanse, the Juice Box blog is a must read. It details interesting information about juicing, body types, and nutrition.  Moving forward, I will most likely drink pressed juice after a high-intensity workout.   I do highly recommend Juice Box-Seattle and I look forward to visiting the Juice Box Cafe.

    It worries me so much. What really can degrade a fine relationship is irrational violence. Just try to remember your way home. Getinto therapy. Nobody shold deal with suicidal thoughts alone.
