I stumbled upon this juice concept less than a week ago, and decided to give it a try! Based in Lebanon, these juices are a definite must-try concept; and the best part is – they home deliver!
I started off this cleanse, worried I wouldn’t be able to keep up; or start craving food and instead have my money go to waste; but fortunately I was surprised when the first batch reached my door.
They’re conveniently numbered from 1-6 making it super easy to split your drinks evenly along the day. Although you don’t really get to pick your juices, since they only deliver fruits and vegetables that are in season; some taste fantastic whilst others are a bit more difficult to get through.
All in all, the packaging of these juices are simplistic yet creative, giving the whole concept of what your consuming, a fresh organic outlook. Their labels making it very clear and straight forward as to WHAT you are consuming, and their numbering system making it perfectly accessible as to WHEN you are consuming them.
Anyone can try this, if your willing to say no to food for a couple of days, however I can’t lie, I did cheat a little and drank the ones I liked first, and got stuck with the not-so-yummy ones later on at night (not too smart I’d have to say). My favorite, is definitely the ‘Green Limonata’ which had kale, mint, pear, lemon and ‘Carrot Boost’ which had orange, carrot, lemon, cucumber, turmeric mostly because I’m in favor of a good Carrot juice and Lemonade every once in a while.
I did find it quite difficult to manage, especially since I can never say NO to a good meal, mostly on the 3rd day, when I just needed a fat juicy burger; but post Cleanse, I felt my skin developed a natural glow, and i definitely felt a whole lot healthier.
You can buy these juices separately or in packs of 6, and have them delivered in sets of 1, 3, or 5 depending on the length you choose you want your cleanse to be.
The nice thing about this cleanse, is that they follow up with you by e-mail with little notes, tips and tricks to stay on the cleanse; which I felt helped with the motivational aspect of it all.
They are a bit pricey since they do cost 10$ per bottle. They are sold at New Earth Organic Store in Achrafieh, and at Live Organic in Naccache.
