I think it’s important to “check in” with your body every now and then – Are you getting enough sleep? Do you feel sluggish? Did you enjoy a few too many cocktails this week? Have you eaten anything other than spaghetti in the past few days? (ok, maybe I’m the only one who has to ask myself that last question…) But anyway, sometimes I have to regroup when it comes to eating right and taking care of myself. Recently, several friends RAVED about a cleanse from Juice Nashville and I decided to give it a try.

I’m no stranger to fresh, pressed juice. My husband and I love our Hurom slow juicer and regularly create yummy concoctions. I like to come up with practical blends (Apple, Kale, & Lemon anyone?) while my husband just throws a bunch of stuff in there (I think one time he made blueberry, strawberry, carrot, spinach, apple, lemon, ginger, and orange juice. It was brown. I mean!)

This cleanse though, is a more calculated juice experience. It consists of drinking six juices a day, for three days. The blends range from “I heart carrots” (just carrot juice) to the “c-ya” (ginger, grapefruit, orange, apple) to “oh yeah” (kale, apple, collard greens, lemon). I’m being serious when I say this too – they are all DELICIOUS. Juice Nashville will even deliver them to you in an iced down cooler.

The first day was the toughest. Not really because I ever got super hungry, but just because my mind started telling me “umm, hello? It’s dinner time! You should be winding down and eating something with a fork right now!” – but I pushed through on mental toughness and called it a night. The second day was easier. I woke up from an amazing slumber, felt lighter and less puffy. Day three I woke up feeling even better. Like, better than I have in forever! Honestly, if I could add wine and cheese to the juice cleanse (which, lets be honest, would completely negate the point of a juice cleanse) I might not eat any real food ever again. That’s how good it made me feel.

Seriously though, womanistas…this cleanse was the real deal. I am planning on doing it once every couple of months just to hit the “reset” button on my health and digestive system (and take a break from all that cheese I eat, sigh.) If you decide to try it, let me know what you think!

Happy juicing, womanistas!

    I’m on the hunt for a good cleanse in my town! After a summer trip to San Fran….and then a back to back trip to a convention in Florida, I was feeling rather “fluffy” to say the least! I searched online for local cleanses and got nothing but a point in the direction to an Earthfare store. I went and this particular store didn’t carry the products. So, I resulted to a “pill” version of the cleanse…..pills contained ingredients that are supposedly the same as in the juice cleanse. Now, I know it didn’t have the exact same results as the fresh juice cleanse but boy is it a good “tide me over” or shall I say “appetizer” to the real deal! So, do you have any alternate “cleanse” suggestions for those of us that are busy bees and need a “store bought” cleanse product? OR do I just need to bite the bullet and get a juicer and some good recipes? In the end, I’m with you…..a good cleanse definitely does a body good!
