It’s very important that throughout our life we always find a way to challenge ourselves. Whether that is our body, our mind or both. Starting a juice cleanse was my first challenge of this year and wow was it an intense journey. It first started as a 3 Day Juice Cleanse and then as day 3 arrived I really felt amazing results, so I kept going and made my 3 day Cleanse to a 7 day Raw Juice Cleanse.
THE GREEN SUNRISE
This juice is a great way to start your morning off. It’s a heavy vegetable juice with a ton of dense nutrients and a great flavour to help push your body to realize that even with out solid food it can still get all that it needs.
Broccoli- 1/2 a stock of broccoli (stem and all)
Spinach- 1/2 a bunch of spinach
Passion Fruit- Entire fruit (no skin!)
Lemon- 1/2 lemon (rinds and seeds)
Cuccumber- 1/2 to 3/4 cucumber
Add ice to make it come alive.
THE GREEN BULLET
This juice was awesome. I had it everyday at 11am as a natural sugar life (the pinnacle) and internal reboot (the cayenne).
Kale – 1/2 a bunch
Ginger- a little chunk
Lemon – 1/2 lemon including seeds and rind
Pineapple – 1/4 to 1/2 a pineapple
Cucumber- 1/2 to 3/4 of cucumber
Top and stir in 1 table spoon of Cayenne Pepper
Add ice to really make it refresh.
TUMMERIC FOR DAYS
The main purpose of this juice is the turmeric. Its great for so many reasons (google it!) but I love it for my back as an anti inflammatory. This juice was nice in the afternoon and always seemed to hit the spot.
Orange- 1 oranges
Lemon- 1/2 lemon
Spinach- 1/4 bunch
Carrot- 2 decent sized carrots
Watermelon- 3 big slices
Turmeric- As much as I could put in without killing the flavour completely
Fresh Black Pepper- Top the finished juice with a half table spoon of black pepper to supercharge and activate the turmeric.
Finish with ice cubes to cool it down and make it really enjoyable.
This was one of the staple dinner juices I worked at getting better and better. The key was experimenting to flavours I would like and trying different combinations of nutrient heavy vegetables. It would usually be the last juice of the day and let my body know once again that it can feel full, nourished, and receive more than it needs in liquid form.
Tomato- 1 full tomato
Broccoli- 1/2 a stock of broccoli (stock included)
Sweet Pepper- Entire pepper (green, red, or yellow)
Spinach – 1/2 a bunch
Celery- 2 stalks of celery
Carrot- 2 decent size carrots
Beet- 3/4 beet
