Don't let the chill in the air fool you! Spring is just around the corner. As the seasons change, it's the perfect time to hit the reset button on your health and wellness routine. One great way to do this is by embarking on a juice cleanse to refresh your body and mind.



What is a Juice Cleanse?

A juice cleanse is a short-term wellness plan that involves consuming only freshly pressed fruit and vegetable juices for a set period of time. This allows your digestive system to take a break from processing solid foods and helps to flood your body with essential nutrients. 

Why Choose a Juice Cleanse?

Seasonal changes can often leave us feeling sluggish and in need of a boost. A juice cleanse can help to kickstart your metabolism, improve digestion, and increase your energy levels. It's a great way to detoxify your body and give your immune system a much-needed boost.

How to Start a Juice Cleanse

Before starting a juice cleanse, it's important to consult with a healthcare professional, especially if you have any underlying health conditions. Choose a variety of fruits and vegetables to juice, making sure to include a good balance of nutrients.

During the cleanse, it's important to stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water and herbal teas. Listen to your body and if you feel hungry, consider adding in a small snack like raw nuts, seeds, seasonal fruits or vegetables.

Tips for a Successful Cleanse

Set realistic goals for your cleanse and be gentle with yourself throughout the process. Take time to rest and relax, and listen to your body's signals. After the cleanse, gradually reintroduce solid foods back into your diet to avoid shocking your system. Be sure to checkout our tips for before, during, and after your cleanse here.

Remember, an all juice cleanse is not a quick fix or a long-term solution, but rather a way to jumpstart healthier habits and give your body a fresh start. However, keeping cold pressed juice in your daily diet is a long term solution to increase your intake of plants. After your cleanse, try nourishing yourself with 2-4 juices per day as part of your ongoing wellness plan. Embrace the seasonal change as an opportunity to reflect, and prioritize your health and well-being.
