I definitely did not have the same excitement from my first green juice of the day, so sipping on my Juice Springsteen was not my favorite experience. Though feeling hungry, I could barely make it through half of the juice before I felt like I was turning into a leafy green myself. In short, I was no longer killing the juice cleanse game.
I tried the Twisted Roots, which was a very hearty mix of carrots, beetroot and lemon juice. The beet taste was the most prevalent and I really enjoyed it. It reminded me of borscht soup, but in a cold form. This juice was a lovely treat and a very filling meal with 160 calories, no fat, and 4 grams of protein.
With extra energy stores available, now that your body doesn’t have to work so hard to detox itself, you can expect your mind to be sharper and your thinking to be clearer. Some people report feeling euphoric during a cleanse. Just like the body, the mind also needs to be clear of junk to perform properly. If the body is clean and running efficiently, the mind is free to do its best work.
You eat well most days, indulge a bit on the weekends and are looking for a solution to make consistently healthy choices.
After just one day of flooding your body with nutrients and allowing your digestive system a break, you can expect to notice an increase in energy. This is due to the fact that your body is rapidly clearing out toxins, and is not taking in any new toxins through food, so the energy normally required to clear out these excess toxins is now available for you.
If kale is a regular part of your diet and you wouldn’t be caught consuming high fructose corn syrup, this is you!
The day after my cleanse, as directed, I eased back into solid foods with two bottles of Green Harmony, made with cucumber, apple, kale, celery, lemon, spinach, parsley and a billion-plus probiotic cultures. Then I ate some soft fruit and vegetables throughout the day, and ate a more substantial dinner that night.
