Pressed Juicery Cleanse, Day 1

Well I am surprised and extremely happy to say that yesterday went quite smoothly! I woke up really, really excited to start, but had heard from numerous people that the juices typically don’t get delivered until mid-morning, so I started the day off with some yogi kombucha decaf green tea. Let’s be real. I would have much rather had a cup of coffee, but I was good somehow.

My juices came about 9:45 a.m., which was perfect, because I was planning/hoping to start my first juice at 10 a.m. Typical blogger, I took a million pictures when they first got here and then realized I should probably go ahead and put them in the refrigerator, because they can spoil super easily. I lined them up all pretty in the fridge and everything.

10:00 a.m.: My first juice was the Greens 2. This one is made with kale, spinach, romaine, parsley, cucumber, celery, apple, and lemon. I absolutely loved this one. For the longest time I was terrified to try green juice, but now that I have I adore it. I am not a fan of super sweet things in drinks, and this one was tart, but not in a bad way. Really, really good. However, I have tried the Greens 3 previously in Los Angeles and loved it even more, so I was really looking forward to that one.

12:00 p.m.: The next juice was Citrus 2. Also delicious and made with pineapple, apple, lemon, and mint. This is one that I could totally drink in like 3 seconds flat, but I didn’t because my mom came home and we decided to go on a walk. I really, really, really times a million hate the word refreshing, but that’s exactly what this juice was. I would like one of these every day with breakfast please.

2:00 p.m.: I was really nervous to have the Roots 3. I hate beets, and this one has beet, apple, lemon, and ginger. I have recently learned to tolerate ginger thanks to the hibachi houses with their orange ginger dressing on those yummy salads, but I was scared this was going to be like a beet and ginger root smashed together. However, it was quite good! Not my favorite, but it was damn tasty. It was a little bit spicy, or maybe I’m just weird for thinking that, but I wasn’t mad about that because I love spicy food.

4:00 p.m.: Okay, so the Citrus 4 was not my favorite. It had cucumber, pineapple, lemon, coconut h2o, and aloe vera. I was really hoping this cleanse would come with the grapefruit mint juice, but it didn’t. Boo. I will just have to order some more or try it next time I go to California. It was okay, but you could really taste the cucumber in it. I love cucumber, but it just somehow didn’t seem to go with the rest of the ingredients. This one also seemed to be thicker than the 3 previous juices, which I’m sure is because of the coconut. It is definitely drinkable, but not one I would order on my own.

6:00 p.m.: Finally time for the Greens 3! I was seriously so excited for this one. This one has all the same ingredients of the greens 2, plus ginger. It adds a little bit of a tang to the juice and makes it spicy and seem more like food than juice. Which is good because I was quite hungry by this point. The greens 3 is apparently one of their most popular juices, and I can totally see why! You really have to enjoy green juice to like this one, but if you do I would highly recommend it.

8:00 p.m.: The last drink of the day was vanilla almond milk, containing almonds, dates, vanilla bean, sea salt, and filtered water. So yummy. It tasted like an almond milkshake, and I sure wasn’t mad about that at all. It was nice to have this as my last juice, because it was more filling than the others and I wasn’t starving before I went to bed which was nice.

This cleanse also came with 3 bottles of chlorophyll water and 3 bottles of aloe vera water. The chlorophyll was to be drank throughout the day to keep you hydrated (even though I also had my usual 100 oz. of water) and the aloe vera to be had right before bed with some more hot tea. It also came with this cute little bag!

I was truly amazed yesterday at the amount of self-control I had, especially when I had the opportunity to go out for Mexican food and margaritas, which I desperately wanted. I really was surprised at how I didn’t feel like eating my arm off though. Since I had my juices two hours apart and they took me about an hour each to finish, there was really only one hour increments throughout the day when I wasn’t consuming something. The juices tended to keep me full for about 45 minutes after finishing them, and then I would be starving for 15 minutes or so, but it was tolerable because I knew I would be having something soon. Of course I would have loved to just eat like normal, but somehow I managed to not. Score.
