Why I Loved My Juice Cleanse with Juice Press

Happy Sunday beautiful friends. I am overjoyed and filled with immense energy after the best juice cleanse I have ever done. Spring to me is always a time to cleanse and reset. Especially after the winter we had, I really needed some detoxification. I enjoy juice cleansing because of the break it gives my digestive system. It helps me recognize my emotional attachment to foods and points out some of the cravings I have. I don’t juice cleanse to lose weight even though many people do lose weight when they juice for an extended period of time. I cleanse for the sake of treating my body good. I love giving my body some much needed nutrients and taking time to really rest. Trust me I took time to get my full 8 hours and put my needs first. We ALL need to do that from time to time, if not ALL the time.

This month I started a new job and was introduced to Juice Press. It is a raw juice and smoothie bar of the future (their words). And I am all for their mission. During my lunch hour I wandered over to Juice Press and tried one of their green juices. Actually, I tried quite a few things. They have a fridge full of samples. AMAZING. You can win me over any day with free samples.

I brought home a menu and decided to embark on amazing juice journey with my mom. I have done two other juice cleanses before with Love Grace Foods and The Squeeze Truck and even did the Dr. Oz cleanse with smoothies. I knew the drill and mentally prepare myself to feel complete hungry and possibly a few mood swings.

Day 1

I woke up energized and ready to take on my day. The first juice was a grapefruit, orange and lemon. It was tart, tangy and citrusy. LOVED it. I went through my day not feeling a bit hungry. Shocking! I was anticipating day 1 to be my worst day because that was my experience the last time. Each and every juice was nutrient filled, well thought out, delicious and kept me full. I really didn’t even miss food. I almost didn’t finish one of my juices since I was so full off my juices. The only one I really wasn’t fond of was “Good Weed” with filtered water, hemp seeds, tahini, coconut sugar, cinnamon, vanilla and sea salt. I really could not take the intense flavor of the tahini even though my favorite go to dressing contains tahini. I got used to it by the third day but it really was my least favorite of the 6 juices I had throughout the day.

Day 2

I woke up incredibly groggy, convinced I wouldn’t make it through the day. Can I have my dirty soy chai latte, please? After the first two juices I got a little pep in my step and seemed to function. No real signs of hunger. My skin looks great. I’m just going to the bathroom to pee every 30 minutes.

Day 3

Can I do this for 2 days more? I LOVE how I feel right now! I feel light, clean, clear and completely NOT bloated! I hate feeling bloated. I love feeling completely empty yet satisfied at the same time.

Even though I am gradually adjusting back to normal eating, I am very impressed with Juice Press and their well thought out cleanses. Not only that but their selection of salads, raw desserts and even breakfast items are to die for. I picked up their chia seed pudding and acai superfood bowl as easy post cleanse meals and fell deeper in love with Juice Press. Seriously? What can’t you guys do?!

I can’t wait to try another cleanse with them soon but I will be attempting my very first 5 day cleanse. Stay tuned for that!

Peace, love and no beef (and green juice)!
