First Day of Our Green Juice Cleanse from Moon Juice
So we decided to jump on the cleanse bandwagon this January. Why? First, living in LA now, there are literally hundreds of juiceries that do the work for you. It can be daunting to put together a wholesome cleanse program yourself, and after doing my research, I felt that the Juicery I go to most (Moon Juice-Venice location) was right on par with what I had in mind. They serve CCOF certified organic, cold pressed, medicinal juice each day which “keeps your metabolism going, your organs supported, and your brain active so you can be fully fed and functioning.” I’m down with that. Having done both the master cleanse, and 2 day intense liver cleanse a few times before, I knew that I wanted something more hearty this time, a cleanse that would feed my mind, body, soul. The green juice cleanse from Moon Juice is a super clean, sugar free cleanse that you can feel good about drinking. Each day of the Green Cleanse includes:
•4 Goodness Greens-Kale, dandelion, parsley, spinach, and celery
-This juice alkalizes, heals, stimulates, and lifts mood.
•2 Canyon Greens-Collards, rainbow chard, parsley, ginger, celery, and cucumber
-This juice nourishes bones, enhances blood, and boosts energy.
•1 Enzymatic Aloe Tonic-Aloe Vera and E3 Live Digestive Enzymes
-Promotes radiant, glowing beauty and happiness.
• 1 Moon Milk of choice (Hemp & Coconut, Hazelnut, or Pumpkin)
(We chose Hemp & Coconut) Hemp seeds, coconut meat, alkaline, mineralized, and oxygenated water, coconut nectar, vanilla bean, and pink salt
-This milk beautifies, balances the brain, and is high in complete protein and omega-3 fatty acids.
***Each day of the cleanse you flood your system with 20 lbs of certified organic, raw produce and nuts or seeds! Try eating all those veggies…it’s just not possible…enter, juice!
The second reason is that I am a veteran cleanser, and I truly believe that cleansing helps reset your entire body. Moon Juice says “Juice cleansing enables the body to naturally go into detox mode while flooding it with live nutrients and enzymes. We like to think of our Moon Juice Cleanses as a juice feast, a holiday for the body, the ultimate indulgence.” Read their concise, and informative “cleanse basics” here. After cleansing I notice an overall change in my body chemistry. The two things effects that I feel the most are, increased energy, and decreased cravings. With all of the junk I loaded my body with from spending the holidays in Mexico, I knew a cleanse was on the horizon, and I’m glad I took the plunge. We started our five day cleanse yesterday. Today is day two. I have a slight headache, and yes, I feel hungry, but it’s nothing overpowering and I know I can handle it. The benefits will be worth it! Ill check back in a few days with an update…but for now, go get your cleanse on!
