This week is kind of an unconventional What I Ate Wednesday. For some more “normal” eats, check out other people’s submissions on Jenn’s blog.

I woke up this morning with a special delivery at the door.

A couple weeks ago, my mom and I decided we would participate in a 3-day cleanse from Pressed Juicery. I’ve heard of this juicery before because its located in downtown LA.  In total, there are 7 so-cal locations and 2 nor-cal locations. They deliver throughout the country and guarantee freshness. Seems promising, right? I picked out the choices of drinks 1-6 for each of us… 2 greens, 2 roots, 1 citrus, and one “dessert” juice.

My spread:

  • citrus 4: cucumber, pineapple, lemon, coconut water, aloe vera
  • roots 4: carrot, apple, ginger
  • coconut cinnamon: coconut meat, coconut water, cinnamon

In addition to each of the six juices we drink throughout the day, we also have one drink to chug throughout the day and another for just before bed:

  • chlorophyll water: hydrating antioxidants
  • aloe very water: aids in elimination and helps the immune system

We just started today and it’s going decently. I really like the greens, citrus, and chocolate almond drink. I couldn’t even finish the first roots drink because it tasted like pure beets and I’m not a huge fan.

Crossing my fingers the next two days go smoothly (haaa, so punny). This cleanse sure is different from the past two weeks of indulgence- with the birthday, Vegas, and everything in between.

Question: Have you ever done a juice cleanse?

  1. Ohh I’ve been wanting to try Pressed juices! I’ve heard good things! I’m sure I would really like the green drink but I don’t think I could get on board with the beets either! The chocolate almond milk sounds delish though! And how is the aloe water? I drink 2 tbs of pure aloe a day which might not seem like a lot but it’s brutal!

      Hey Marissa! The juice cleanse went pretty well, but it was insanely hard to only drink liquids for three days. My mom did a lot better than I did. Also, a few of the juices were just undrinkable to me. The beet one was not good (I’m not a huge fan), but the rest were great. I’m glad that I did it on three days when I didn’t have school, work, dance practice, etc. because it definitely makes your energy slouch. I also tend to get headaches when I’m hungry so that sure didn’t help. That said, I would still recommend doing a juice cleanse- they are expensive but as long as you are committed and plan it nicely to fit in with your schedule you should be fine!

      Hope this helps + lemme know if you have any more questions!
