I decided that I need a jump start to eating better and exercising this summer.  I am also trying to kick my caffeine habit!  So I decided to do a 3 day juice cleanse.  I did this cleanse last summer so I had an idea of what to expect.  On Thursday, my wonderful husband picked up the juice at 7 am.  I ordered my juice from Natural Born Juicers.  Here is the list of juices that you get with the 3 day beginning cleanse:

  • Light Greens
  • Grapefruit, apple, lemon
  • Ultimate Greens
  • Spicy Lemonade
  • Sweet Beet
  • Almond Milk
  • Grapefruit Mint
  • Spring Cleaner

At 8 am I drank my first juice.  I realized I didn’t like the taste of cucumber and celery in my juice.  I had to down it, follow with water, and pop a piece of gum in my mouth in order not to gag!

By 1 pm I had a killer headache and took a 3 hour nap!  The rest of that day was brutal, as my body was very upset I had not had my usual 2-3 cups of coffee!  Day 2 was much better and by Day 3 I was feeling normal again.

The grapefruit, apple, lemon was definitely my favorite.

If you are looking to do a juice cleanse I would make sure you have a little down time.  You will definitely feel weak and possibly get a headache.

Of course you can make your own juices! This was just a convenient, easy way to do it.  I will probably juice my own recipes next time since I definitely have my favorites.  Happy juicing!
