Between all the pills, cocktails, fatty foods and the occasional sword, we swallow a lot of things. And that means our innards are in need of a little TLC every now and then.
That’s why we were intrigued when somebody told us about Ritual Cleanse. It’s a 100% organic, raw juice program that you do for just one day. That’s what really sold us. We know people, ourselves included, who have done longer cleanses that left us irritable, angry and downright nasty by the third or fourth day. We just don’t have that kind of willpower.
We figure for one day, we can do anything.
A package of 6 freshly pressed juice blends shows up on your doorstep and each bottle is labeled so you know the proper consumption order. Drink one every 2 hours and each works its mother-nature magic to keep you energized while it cleanses.
To be clear, this is not a colon cleanse, so don’t worry about disturbing the neighbors with mysterious noises. It simply uses the best seasonal fruits and vegetables to “reset” your body gently.
And the juices are delicious. Even the green ones consisting of spinach, romaine, kale, celery, cucumber and green apple. Doesn’t sound too appetizing, but it really was tasty. The fruit juices, even better.
You’re not supposed to eat anything, but you can “cheat” with an organic avocado or organic romaine lettuce, but we went for the true liquid-only experience. After just one day, we lost 3 pounds and felt completely invigorated. Best of all, when you’re doing something like this, it makes you want to work out and add in other healthy activities to not just take your mind off food for a day, but also maximize the results.
So give your body a break, even if just for a day. And by our calculations, if most of you make Sunday Funday your Cleanse Day, you’ll probably break even in what you would’ve spent on cocktails on the patio.
