Juice Cleanse (Round 2)

Standard

Hello Love Bugs.

A few days ago, I finished my second ever juice cleanse.

I did my flagship cleanse (read the original blog post with tips included here) in April of 2014 and I can’t say it was enjoyable… this one wasn’t much different, though I think it may have been more tolerable. I think I have gotten even healthier in the past year (go me!). But I mean, it was three days with minimal food = not my idea of a party.

It did the trick, however. I feel fantastic and I dropped 8 pounds in 3 days, which is even better than last year. I figured I would give you a play-by-play of my three days in case you were feeling brave. I made everything myself – including the pudding and soup – so if you desire any recipes, let this lady know! Maybe I’ll post them at some point on my own in the future.

DAY ONE
09:00 – two hard boiled eggs, hot earl grey tea with 1/2 lemon
09:30 – water with chia seeds
11:00 – 8 oz juice (dandelion, lemon, ginger, turmeric, celery, green apple)
13:20 – 16 oz juice (celery, cucumber, cilantro, parsley, ginger, lemon, cayenne)
14:30 – one medium red apple with 2 T peanut butter
17:45 – 16 oz juice (cayenne, lemon, lime, beet greens, ginger, cucumber, grapefruit)
19:30 – pint of detox soup
20:45 – 16 oz juice (beet, kale, cayenne, lemon, ginger)

DAY TWO
09:00 – one hard boiled egg
09:15 – 16 oz juice (grapefruit)
13:00 – 16 oz juice (kale, cucumber, parsley, lime, cayenne, red apple)
14:30 – 4 oz sprouted seeds and nuts
17:45 – 16 oz juice (cabbage, celery, ginger, jicama, carrot greens)
19:30 – pint of detox soup
21:30 – 2 oz juice (lemon, ginger, kale, cayenne, carrot, garlic)

DAY THREE
08:30 – 1/2 cup quinoa, plain
09:30 – 16 oz juice (tomato, dandelion, cayenne, parsley, basil, celery, lime)
11:45 – 4 oz chia pudding
13:00 – small coffee with coconut oil
16:00 –  3 0z wheat grass shot with ginger
16:30 – 16 oz juice (lemon, ginger, kale, cayenne, garlic, carrot, jalapeno)
21:00 – pint of detox soup

Notice that I didn’t only drink juices for three days straight; I added some healthy foods and snacks in there as well. Of course, you can totally only drink juices during a cleanse, but it would just be too torturous for me. Plus, my juices are intense enough a little food is probably a saving grace.

That’s it for me tonight! My sister and mom expressed interest in cleansing in the near future, too, so I’ll let you know how they wind up doing. Stay awesome my friends.
