The truth is it’s mostly psychological. A 2-day juice cleanse won’t make too much of a difference in your overall health. In fact, doctors will tell you that our bodies eliminate toxins naturally anyway. But when I received my 2 bags of cold pressed juices from Paleta, I welcomed this chance to do another cleanse , my second juice cleanse. It would be a great way to jump start my health regimen. Since I’m not very good with exercising and always eating a balanced meal, anything that gets me on track is a good thing. It’s sad but true.
So challenge accepted! My kids are like “Why are you doing it again?” While my husband was supportive. Then they saw me through day 1 and by mid-day of day 2 I wanted to nibble at my son’s chicken, and he said, “Mom that’s cheating.” So I put the chicken back and took a gulp of water. Two days, it’s only two days. I’m such a wimp.
I made it. Two days on a liquid diet. It wasn’t bad. After the crabbiness of the first day, my body had gotten used to it. Maybe I could make it three days next time. The juices are yummy and organic. Although the Red Root was not to my taste, I totally looked forward to the chocolate and strawberry milkshakes, made with almond, cashew, dates, vanilla bean, cocoa (for the chocolate), strawberries (for the strawberry milk shake). I could drink those all day.
So what did I learn from my 2 day Paleta juice cleanse?
You can do whatever you set your mind to.
After my juice cleanse, I started cleaning out closets at home. That’s a tougher challenge, to clean clutter. But I know I can do it.
