While walking around Larchmont with my friends on Sunday. I had the spontaneous and brilliant idea to do a 1-day Juice Cleanse. We walked into Pressed Juicery and I was able to easily convince my friend Brigitte to join me on this journey. For $40 you get 6 juices, and 2 waters to drink throughout the day. We purchased the cleanse and were excited to get started Monday morning.
10 AM: I start my first juice: Vanilla Almond. Taste 10/10. I’m already starving but I’m trying my best not to gulp down this juice so fast. It tastes like a vanilla milkshake in the best way possible. I’m a big breakfast person, so not going to lie I’m still pretty hungry.
12:05 PM: Like clockwork my body hits noon and I’m automatically hungry for lunch. I’m like Cinderella when the clock strikes twelve except for having a curfew, I just get hungry. Time for my second juice: Greens 2. Taste 10/10. For a green juice this is surprisingly tasty. The apple and lemon really help balance out the bitter greens.
12:50 PM: I’m still sipping on my second green juice. I’m starting to get a slight hunger headache.
2 PM: Drink #3: Citrus 2. Taste 10/10. This is such a refreshing drink! It’s a citrus with mint which is perfect for an afternoon pick me up. So far, this Citrus drink is my favorite. I’ve also started drinking my Chlorophyll Water, which doesn’t taste like much.
2:30 PM: I’m starting to be bored with all the liquids. Wishing I could eat some solid food right about now.
4:45 PM: I started my 4th drink: Roots 2. Taste 7/10. This one wasn’t my favorite. It was kind of a filler drink.
5:30 PM: My roommate wanted to walk and get oysters for Happy Hour. I agreed to go with her on her walk and took my juice with me. I ate one fried oyster because I couldn’t resist. I wanted more but I stopped myself.
7 PM: I’m starving. Time for my 5th drink: Greens 3. Taste 8/10. This definitely tastes a little more “green” than the green juice from this morning. I’m so tired of drinking juice at this point. I would kill for some mac and cheese, or Chinese. Also, I have a headache. Like a tension headache but I’m tense because I haven’t eaten solid foods all day. But, I’ve committed thus far so might as well just go the distance.
7:50 PM: Help. I’m so hungry. I’m also over this green juice and throw it out with about a third left.
8:05 PM: I’m caving and eating a string cheese. No shame.
8:10 PM: Last juice of the day: Chocolate Almond. Taste 10/10. This is the bomb.com. Kind of tastes like a dessert.
9 PM: I’m officially done with all my juices and all I have left is the Aloe Vera Water. I might save half of it for tomorrow because I don’t think I can consume any more liquid.
11 PM: I’m actually starving. If I don’t go to bed soon I think I might die.
Next day thoughts: I woke up feeling lighter than usual. I weighed two pounds less than the day before. I also just feel overall healthier. I wasn’t starving in the morning like I usually am. Overall, I enjoyed doing my one day cleanse. I don’t think I’m cut out for doing more than one day but the one day was enough to hit the reset button on my body. Moving forward with the week I’m going to attempt to make healthy decisions on what foods I eat (minus on Cinco de Mayo because all bets are off when it comes to margaritas). I was surprised as to how I handled this cleanse. I did the one day Blue Print Cleanse and I thought I was actually going to pass out from malnourishment. But I didn’t feel that way with Pressed Juicery. Yes, I was hungry. But it was tolerable. And the juices all tasted pretty amazing. My favorite juice from the cleanse was definitely Citrus 2. Would I do this cleanse again? Probably.
