I’ve recently been noticing that there have been times throughout the past few months where I just feel lazy, bloated, and overall sluggish (aka never wanting to leave my bed). Does this ever happen to you babes?
I feel like we all have these kind of “off-days” where all we want to do is watch Netflix, eat some (a lot of) junk food, and rely on caffeine to pick us up throughout the day. Really, all we need is a healthy pick-me-up to get us back on the right track! For me, a juice cleanse was the first thing that came to mind when trying to cure my overbearing couch-potatoness.
Juice cleanses have been gaining a lot of popularity recently, and honestly I think a lot of it is due to the fact that they create a start to healthy habits. One of my worst habits is late night snacking, and once I completed my one-day juice cleanse I haven’t had the urge to snack at night as much. What I really love about juice cleanses is how great you feel after completing them – you really give your digestive system a break from working so hard to digest heavier meals throughout a regular day. The day after my cleanse, I really did notice a boost in energy. Yeah sure, during the cleanse isn’t the most desirable (talk about being hungry/angry at the same time), but I promise your body will feel a whole lot better once you’ve finished! I kept a few almonds on hand throughout the day just in case I got too hungry.
I decided to go with a one-day juice cleanse from Project Juice. What I love about Project Juice is the simple and tasty flavors that they incorporate into their cold pressed juices — not to mention all of their juices are certified organic! With the one day juice cleanse, I was able to customize my pack and pick out 6 juices that I thought would best effect my body (and what sounded yummy of course). The company also offers different targeted juice cleanses and wellness packs which are great for three-day cleanses! My favorites juices were the Strawberry Chia and Almond Mylk, so so so delicious!
Have any of you babes done a juice cleanse before? Or are thinking of doing one? I highly recommend it 🙂
