It’s a good idea to do a cleanse a few times a year. It’s a chance to rid your body of all of the toxins you’ve built up. It also help reduce cravings for sugars, carbs, and junk in general. Usually, I recommend waiting until the winter is over to start a radical cleanse. But, I really feel like I need to detox now, so here I go. I’ve never done a cleanse that is totally liquid for as long as 5 days, so this will be a challenge for me.
Today I started the 5-day green juice cleanse by Organic Avenue. Day one was really OK. I feel good and I am not starving. I have a lot of energy. This is the first time that I bought a pre-bottled cleanse kit. Usually, I blend up my own smoothies or juice my own juices. I have to be honest, these pre-made juices make cleansing SO much easier. I drink 7 bottles a day. It feels good to be reaching for something else every few hours during the day. I only hope the next several days are as pleasant.
This was my breakfast: a wheatgrass shot.
A few hours later, I got to have a green coco juice. Then a few hours later, a very green juice and then a green lemonade. The green lemonade was my favorite.
The last 3 drinks of the day were a few more green juices and a bottle of almond milk. I really enjoyed the almond milk.
The company recommends that you go to sleep early if possible. This will be easy, because I am exhausted. I really should be studying for tomorrow’s quiz, but good night…
