For some reason whenever it starts to get cold out, all I want to do is eat junk. It’s like my body is trying to store as much fat as it can for winter. As much as I love to eat donuts and pizza, sometimes I just need a good cleanse to reset my system. This is my absolute fav. I’m not sure if any of you are familiar with cleanses, but the one I took involved drinking 5 juices a day (and as much water as I wanted) for 5 days. The 5 day cleanse is $231 for 25 juices. There is a 3 day option which is cheaper, but I was feeling ambitious. You aren’t supposed to eat anything to really detox and cleanse your organs, but I’m not going to lie, I cheated a little bit here and there. I never realized how mean I am when I’m hungry until I cleansed haha. That snickers commercial is pretty accurate… mmm snickers… wait, sorry, back to the cleanse.
I chose the Pulp & Press (833 King St. West, Toronto) to get my juices from, for a few reasons.
- It is an extremely well run company with a huge heart & is protective of our environment
- Their juices are 100% organic with no additives or sweeteners in them
- Pulp & Press supports our local economy by being ingredients from Ontario farmers
My husband cleansed with me, and we were both surprised by how much more energy we had. I’m not going to lie, I am not the healthiest eater in the world, so it took a couple days for my body to figure out what the hell was going on, but by day 3, I was feeling amazing.
My initial goal was to reset my body and detox my organs, and I ended up losing a little weight too, so it was a win-win!
My favourite juices are:
