Detox Diary with Pressed Juicery

Last week we announced our exciting new partnership with Pressed Juicery and over the weekend us three founders did 3 different one-day cleanses from Pressed Juicery to give you every detail on every cleanse available!  In addition, with the holiday season right around the corner, we thought we would share the benefits of pre-holiday cleansing and why you should cleanse before the holidays!  We also have a little present for you at the end of today's post so make sure to check it out!

Pressed Juicery cleanses comes with 6 different flavored juices per day and you can also add chlorophyll and aloe vera water to your day to help with digestion and to raise alkaline levels. With holidays right around the corner you need a lot of energy and stamina to get through all of the holiday parties, errands, and of course shopping! Another perk about juicing is that it helps give you a radiant complexion as well as healthy hair and nails so you can have that holiday glow at every holiday party you attend to this year!

Pressed Juicery offers 3 different types of cleanses: Cleanse #1 is more for first-time juicers or athletes with higher caloric needs, Cleanse #2 is the most popular cleanse that are for those who want to maintain a healthy lifestyle, and Cleanse #3 is for experienced cleansers that love green juices!  Check out our Detox Diaries below to see our experience on our one-day juice cleanses!

"To be completely honest, I was so shocked at how good everything tasted! My absolute favorite flavor was the Greens 3 juice with kale, spinach, romaine, parsley, cucumber, celery, apple, lemon, and ginger- I think the ginger is what I really loved about this juice.  I thought I would be starving the entire day, but I was completely satisfied the entire day!  One thing I would recommend is sipping your juice and take your time drinking it rather than guzzling it- it helps you get full faster!  I felt so great the next day and I'm so excited to do the cleanse again! Perhaps after the holidays :)" - Sakura

"I thought the juices were delicious!  I love the taste of fresh green juices (I love them so much that I crave them!) so I really enjoyed the cleanse.  The Citrus 2 (Apple, lemon, pineapple, and mint) was my absolute favorite... So refreshing!  Getting through day one of the cleanse is partially a mental thing; it's a different concept to "drink" your meals.  But rest assured that you're getting all of the proper nutrients for the day; actually, you're getting even more good stuff than you usually can eat in a day!  The following day after I did my cleanse, I felt AMAZING.  I felt refreshed, happy, and light.  I highly recommend doing a cleanse!  I had been eating less than healthy prior to doing mine, and it definitely is a great 'jump start' to get back on the healthy eating track.  Can't wait to do my next cleanse- I want to do 3 days next time!"- Ali

 "I was expecting to be starving during the cleanse but it was the opposite: I felt really good throughout the day. One of my favorite cleanses was the vanilla almond bottle. It had a lot of my favorite ingredients: almonds, dates, vanilla bean, sea salt, and filtered H20. I woke up feeling pretty refreshed and an urge to continue eating clean!
If you're going to do the cleanse, be sure to keep your schedule open in such a way that you can freely use the restroom; the cleanse is meant to cleanse your body and release the contents in your stomach. Also, avoid doing a cleanse while you're on your menstrual cycle; you want to be comfortable during the process!" - Karen

Birthday Cake Protein Shake {Recipe from Dashing Dish}

Protein Powder: Lean 1.  Sweetener: Truvia.  Sprinkles: Betty Crocker.

In the search for things to eat that are both nutritious & delicious, we're always on the lookout for a tasty new find.  Protein shakes have become one of our staples for healthy eating (especially on the go!) and just your average vanilla or chocolate shake can get a little bland after time.  Well boring protein shake no more, we found the perfect way to spice it up!  Oh and did we mention, it tastes a lot like our favorite decadent treat... cake batter!!

We found this fabulous cake batter protein shake recipe on one of our favorite sites, Dashing Dish.  The recipe is post-workout perfection, or as a great healthy treat for anytime.  The shake reminds us of a thick and creamy cake batter ice cream milkshake.  For your vanilla protein powder base, we really enjoy the taste and consistency of Lean 1.  Sprinkles are optional, but we sure think that they add to the fun!  We love the idea of adding flavor extracts to protein shakes to kick the flavor up a notch, such as using almond extract in this recipe.

If you're looking for more creative protein shake concoctions, look no further than Dashing Dish.  With a few extra ingredients, protein shakes can be transformed into lots of fun dessert flavors!

Special thank you to Dashing Dish for the yummy recipe, and for letting us feature it on our site!

Rabbit Juice

Ok, so no, this is not actually rabbit juice, but one of our reader's, Ursulline, created a pretty fabulous healthy juice drink that she named "Rabbit Juice" because it is infused with lots of vegetables, specifically carrots! So what is juicing you might be wondering? According to Ursulline, "Juicing is the quickest way for the enzymes to absorb in your body". We have always wondered what the benefit is over juicing rather than just using a regular blender and Ursulline explained that, "The enzymes go to work a lot faster and break down any toxins in your body because they are live organisms as opposed to blending which still has amazing benefits, but not with the same intensity".  Do you love juicing too? If so, then you will totally love this recipe she created as a part of her healthy drink regimen.

 You will need these ingredients to make "Rabbit Juice":

  • Chia seeds
  • Ginger root (1 inch)
  • Large carrots (qty 4)
  • 1/2 of a beet
  • 1 orange
  • 1/2 of a green apple
  • Ground cinnamon (as desired amount)
Simply place all of these ingredients inside your juicer, one at a time, to make the Rabbit Juice drink. The best juicer that Ursulline recommends is the Omega 8006 Juicer! Keep in mind that beets have a very strong color to them so your drink will have a dark reddish-purple look when complete.

Do you have an awesome juicing recipe? We want to try it so please email your recipes to!
