There are so many benefits to doing a juice cleanse! We take our cars for an oil change regularly, right? I like to think of a juice cleanse as doing the same thing with my body. Every now and then, we NEED to clean everything out. A juice cleanse isn’t just for fast food addicts, it's for everyone. We typically eat 3 meals a day with about 3 snacks. It takes our bodies 18 hours to digest just one meal, which means that our digestive systems are working 24/7. When you do a juice cleanse, you are giving your digestive system a much needed break! Typically, a juice cleanse is when you drink 6 fresh fruit and vegetable juices throughout the day. I recommend that each juice is about 12-16 ounces, depending on the person. A few of the benefits are: increased energy, regulated colon, repaired liver, better sleep, radiant complextion and hair, mental clarity, elimination of toxins, and weight loss.. just to name a few!
Juicing can get expensive so purchase produce yourself and make your own. Fresh juice is going to be the least expensive way to go about doing a juice cleanse. However, we don't always have time for that. I have tried a few different juice cleanses and these are my top 3 favorite juice cleanse that you can purchase pre-made!
I can't say enough good things about this cleanse! On the website, you will read that Kimberly's cleanse is, "more than just a typical cleanse" which is so true! Kimberly has everything down to a science and has carefully planned out each drink to "maximize the cleanse experience." This cleanse offers a variety of options from a one day cleanse, to a seven day cleanse, and everything in between. You can also choose between a beginner level 1 or a master level 2 cleanse. This cleanse starts and ends with a smoothie, which is one reason why I love this cleanse so much. The smoothies keep you full and help push everything out of your system. Each day you are given a total of 8 products all of which taste delicious! Glow Bio uses all organic produce in their cleanse and they send very thorough instructions which I found helpful! The best thing about this particular cleanse is that it's easy. You will not only feel a change in your body, but you will notice a difference too!

I stumbled across this juice bar while I was out of town in Phoenix, Arizona and I loved it! It's the cutest juice bar I have ever been to and they offer some really great products. I ordered a 5 day juice cleanse from Nekter Juice Cleanse which I liked a lot. This cleanse provides you with 6 products a day... all juices. The last juice is a mix of cashew milk, vanilla bean, and cinnamon, which is a nice change and something to look forward to at the end of each day. You also get a tasty lemonade in this cleanse that is to die for! For more information on this cleanse or to order one for yourself, Click HERE. https://www.nekterjuicebar.com
#3 Squeezed Juice Bar Cleanse
I love going to squeezed in Albuquerque, New Mexico! It's by far my favorite juice bar in town and they offer some really delicious recipes! There isn't anything too fancy about this cleanse like there is with the first two, but I still enjoy this cleanse a lot. You are given 6 juices per day. All 6 are fruit and vegetable juices. The nice thing about this cleanse (for those who live in abq) is that you do not have to pay for shipping! 5 of the 6 juices are VERY tasty... almost too good to be true. You will get a juice in your cleanse called super juice which in my opinion can be a little rough. Some people love it, but it's not my cup of tea. You can also customize your order if you don't like certain juices. My favorite cold pressed juices from squeezed are replenish, liquid sunshine, sweet burn, fatigue fighter, green machine, and thrive! All of those juices get five stars in my book!

Other places to purchase juice on the go.
These are the juices that I give the ok to. I always try and purchase juice as organic and fresh as possible. Be careful when buying juice because the 100% juice label doesn't mean anything. There is a difference between a marketing label and the ingredient list. Read the ingredients on the label and if it says concentrated.. put it back!
The worst "juice" to buy is:
The best juice to buy:
Fresh Juice from a local juice bar
Whole Foods sells fresh cold press juice that they make in stores. I have found their cold press juice to be the least expensive. They offer a variety of juices.
Suja Juice (Health Food Stores, Sprouts, Whole Foods)
Suja Elements (Health Food Stores, Sprouts, Whole Foods)
Trader Joe's Cold Press Juice (Trader Joe's)
If you are new to juicing, I highly recommend starting off SLOW. Start swapping out one meal or one snack a day with a juice. Choose recipes that you will enjoy... if you hate vegetables, you won't be able to jump into a straight veggie juice right away.

Since I started juicing, I have lost a total of 40 lbs and have never been healthier in my entire life! If you are skeptical... just give it a try! What do you have to lose? When you feel good on the inside, you look good on the outside, which is why I always say, "When you sparkle on the inside, you radiate on the outside!"
