Day one juice cleanse menu.

juicer
As spoken of on Facebook, January 2nd, marks day one of my three day juice cleanse. I convinced my lovely friend Meg to be my company in this process, hoping that after this, she won’t hate me completely. Perhaps she’ll just punch me in the face. Which I may or may not deserve after talking her into this. Anyways, initially I wrote a menu that was simple but I really wanted to dig deep with this. I want it to be a total body experience. So, I have been spending the better part of my day researching how to do this safely, healthfully and with a multi purpose approach. If you are considering a cleanse after New Year’s, I urge you to come along on this journey with me. First five people to join get a lovely prize from me.

All of these recipes are meant to throw in a juicer, if you do not have one, go buy one and consider it an investment in your own health.
