After hearing/reading/thinking about juice cleanses over the past year. Damien and I decided we would take the plunge and try one. A 3 Day Cleanse is usually the shortest type available, but you can really choose any length that works for you. Some people do 1 day cleanses, some go up to 6 weeks. We’re just dipping our toes in the water. So what type of juice should you drink and how frequent should you consume them? If you google “juice cleanse” you will get a ton of information back. Sifting through it all we decided to follow the Blueprint Excavation Cleanse.
The cost of these cleanses range anywhere from $50 to $100 per day when you include cost of the juice and delivery. All you have to do, is put the juice in the fridge and follow the numbers on the bottles each day. That was a little pricey for us. Since we juice twice a week already, we decided to make all of the juice for the 3 Day Cleanse ourselves. It was quite the undertaking Heather and Mica decided to join in on the fun as well, so we had to purchase a ton of produce. Damien went to Whole Foods and purchased everything we needed. Yes, that is a 15lb box of Kale; along with 24 cucumbers, 20 lemons, and 16 apples.
We’ll keep you posted on our progress.
