Surviving and Thriving on a 3-Day Juice Cleanse

Way back in June in the midst of home renovations and having no kitchen, my mom and I decided to embark on a 3-day juice cleanse. That’s right–all juice, no food, for 3 whole days! We had been eating out for nearly all our meals due to the renovation and thought it would be the perfect time to do this when I truly had no food in the house to be “tempted” by. My Mom and I turned to The Herd Juicery, a local plant-based and organic cold-pressed juice shop for this 3-day cleanse. The cleanse itself consisted of 6 drinks per day––2 red, 2 green, one yellow, and one nut mylk. All were delicious and Jonathan was kind enough to customize some of the juices so they were all fruits and veggies we enjoy without the ones that cause aversions.

Overall, it was a challenging yet invigorating experience. I was more tuned into the trifecta connection between mind, body, and spirit, and it was incredible to notice these as they occurred. Wanting to eat but not being hungry is a funny feeling, and reminds me that food can sometimes compensate for other aspects of nourishment we seek in our lives.
