Happy 2014! As the year rolls in, so are the resolutions for the happiness, healthy eating, more exercising, less stressing and more sleep. Have you made your resolutions yet? I personally tend to avoid making resolutions, but fully support getting more hours of sleep, eating a few more pieces of fruit and vegetables, and smiling more in the New Year.
If you are short on fruits and vegetables in your daily diet and wanted to start the year with clean eating, you are in for a treat. After personally trying a 3-day Suja Juice Cleanse myself, I will be giving away a 3-day Juice Cleanse to one of you!
The 18 bottles of juice arrived at my door packaged as a present. Each of the 16-oz bottle is dairy, soy and gluten-free, non-GMO, Vegan, and Kosher and Organic certified. I was off to a good start!
The box included full insturctions for the Juice Cleanse as well as complete description and ingredients for each of the juices, the daily schedule of juicing and helpful tips and suggestions.
One of the things that makes Suja Juices stand out is the fact that they undergo High Pressure Pascalization instead of heat. This process enables the juice to stay safe, yet raw, keeping the most essential vitamins from fruits and vegetables.
Truth be told, I was both excited and anxious to start on the cleanse. Three days without solid food? Could I really do it? Would the juice taste good? Would I be hungry? What about headaches?
I began by labeling the juice bottles in order of the consumption and by meal (breakfast, snack, lunch, snack, dinner, dessert). Just looking at the amount of juice I was to consume daily, I felt as though hunger will not be an issue. And I was right. Honestly, I did not feel hungry. I did though miss the act of chewing food and experiencing different textures.
Every single one of the juices were delicious, in their own right. The Glow, Fiji and Green Supreme, packed with kale, spinach and celery, tasted healthy and gave me a boost of energy. Sweetened with apples, they had a pleasant, light taste.
My favorite two juices, by far, were the Purify and Fuel. Purify, with a combination of carrot, apple, celery, beet and lemon was a gorgeous crimson red color and slighter thicker than the other juices, giving it a pleasant mouthfeel.
The Fuel juice, my favorite color – orange, packed with carrots, oranges, apple, pineapple, lemon and turmeric was bright as sunshine. I would be happy to drink a bottle of it on daily basis!
Results? I battled with mild cases of headache throughout the 3 days, though the symptoms did decrease at the end. Drinking more water and getting a few extra hours of sleep helped me to feel better. So did the idea of eating solid food in the near future. By the end of the cleanse, I honestly succumbed to the desire, and ended the cleanse one meal earlier.
What I learned is that I don’t require as much food to be satisfied and not-hungry as I thought I might. I also learned how different all juices taste and how truly delicious Suja juices are. Having juiced myself in the past, I have also come to appreciate the convenience of the Suja juices. Come already packaged and ready to consume, there was no need for grocery shopping, cleaning fruits and vegetables and most importantly cleaning the juices.
