I recently had the opportunity to try a juicing cleanse from Imbibery, a three-day programme designed to nourish my body, give my digestive system a break and help me kick start a healthier lifestyle.
The cleanse involved replacing my meals over a three-day period with six fruit and vegetable juices a day, each 100% raw and organic for the maximum amount of freshness and nutritional benefits.
You get a mental restart and a lot more energy.Your skin really clears up and any small spots even out.
After a long season of dining out, comfort food, parties ... I was just feeling exhausted and bloated.
I needed something to remind my body what healthy eating even was!
I have already tried other juice cleanse but I am telling you, with this one, I was not craving my daily Venti Soya Cap and ginger snaps which is what we can call a MIRACLE!
The 3 day juice cleanse consists in 18 delicious bottles so 5 juices and 1 nut milk per day, the Imbibery girls also provide you 2 shots to be drunk throughout the day.
The cleanse has been carefully crafted to please the taste buds while simultaneously providing the body with adequate nutrition as the juices are cold pressed, raw and unpasteurized.
So first thing in the morning, I drank the 100% lemon shot with some warm purified water to alkalise my body and flush out the toxins, that is something I actually do since I am 12, and I truly believe it helps my body staying in shape!
After the kick start shot it was time to have my first juice of the day around 8am, a bright green one which was screaming: " I AM TOO HEALTHY TO BE GOOD!" but of course never judge a book by his cover this Spinach, Cucumber, Celery, Apple and Lemon was so yummy!
The second one, around 10/11am was so tasy: THE EXOTIC JUICE, a mix of Pineapple and Ginger, sounds weird but it could easily be on some fancy restaurant cocktail menu!
The third one called Roots made of Beetroot,Carrot, Ginger, Apple and Lemon, I have to admit I was not a big fan of, I just dislike beetroot in general.
Even tough it was quiet difficult for me to start drinking it, after a few sips it was ok my mouth just got used to it.
This one is actually everyone else fav so do not listen to me!
Around 2 pm I had my second shot of the day, cayenne Pepper, Lemon and ginger!
This one, I couldn't dilute so I just had to be brave, hold my nose and drink it!
All I needed was people to chant around me : "DRINK DRINK DRINK!"
This shot give you the energy of 10 coffees, no kidding!
Around 4/5 pm, it was time for the one I called Caipirinha, the delicious Spicy limeade a delicious cocktail of Lime, Lemon, Cayenne Pepper and Agave.
This was my absolute favourite :D
At 7pm it was time for an other very green juice, I loved it because I always fail eating my steamed green veggies at night and this was a yummy replacement!
An hour before bed was Cashew Mylk time!
I can not even describe how good it is, Cinnamon, Vanilla, Dates and Himalayan sea salt.
I mean, do I need to say more?
The morning after my first day, I woke up HAPPY, feeling so energetic and looking forward to my 100% lemon shot to start an other healthy day!
This 3 day intoxicating detox, really did work, my tummy was flat, my skin flawless and I felt cleansed!
The Imbibery juice cleanse was the perfect "reset" button for me and I'll definitely do it again!
