Juice Cleanse

So, I'm starting a juice clease today! I recently picked up a second hand juicer and have been making myself fresh juice daily and really enjoy it. I've also been reading alot on juice cleanses and really wanted to give it a try. So I woke up this morning and thought, hey, why not?

I have tried the master cleanse before and failed so I'm hoping this goes better! I just couldn't get past the 'juice' that you drink during the master cleanse and after day 3 I couldn't get it down so that was it for the master cleanse! Hopefully the fact that I'm sharing this with you guys will make me stay strong because now I will have to share my failure with you all if it doesn't work out. I am not overly prepared for the juice cleanse and am just taking it day by day- I don't even have a set amount of time I will be doing it for but I think that's better. I will try to be in tune with my body and just go with it.

My first juice recipe that i'm using today is the Mean Green juice sans ginger (only because I didn't have any). This morning I made enough for 2 or 3 drinks during my day. 33oz says my mason jar. I read that it is recommended to have 4-6 16-20oz glasses a day so that should be about 2 drinks. I may have sort of cheated this morning by having a fruit smoothing (no dairy) beacause I didn't have enough veggies to make another juice and I make a smoothie every morning for me and my bf anyway so, it was easy. I will be stocking up on veggies and fruit tonight for the next few days.
Here is the recipe for the juice I am drinking today:

6 Kale Leaves
1 Cucumber
4 Celery Stalks
2 Green Apples
1/2 Lemon
1 piece of ginger

I also used less kale but used spinach in it's place. Kale has a taste all it's own and is hard to get used to so I think I will gradually work my way into getting used to Kale. Isn't it pretty though, it's so green it almost looks fake. YUM, at this point the cleanse doesn't seem all that difficult. Give it a day or two and I'll be singing a different tune.

Anyway I don't want to bore you all with this mega long post so I think I'll wrap it up.

Have you guys tried juice cleanses before? If so what were you results and do you have any tips for me?? I'd love to hear your input!


  1. I really want to try a juice cleanse, but like you last time I tried it was just horrible. No matter what I put in the juice it tasted of grass and was quite lumpy :( I just followed you so I can see how you do it and get some inspiration from you!

    1. Well I hope I don't let you down, we will see how it goes! (getting hungry already :P)

      Maybe you want to invest in a different juicer or borrow a friends because my juice isn't lumpy at all- no wonder you couldn't stomach it, YUCK!
