Oh my goodness, what a whirlwind I’ve had for the past 3 days. On Monday, I wrote that I would be starting a 3-day juice cleanse with Organic Avenue. It has been amazing! Compared to other juicing programs that I’ve done in the past, this one far exceeded my expectations. First of all, the juices were different on each day so I didn’t get sick of what I was drinking. Secondly, the juices weren’t too sweet, which really turns me off and makes me feel like I’m drinking sugar water.
I almost gave up on the 2nd night. My fiancé was eating a delicious dinner and the smells and the idea of chewing something made me crazy. But I stuck with it, and I’m glad that I did. I sat and calmly drank my cashew hemp milk which boosted me with protein and healthy fats. It filled me right up.
Now, I feel AMAZING! Before I started, I was having headaches, stomach aches, anxiety, and trouble sleeping. Now I feel clear-headed, my ailments have all magically disappeared, and I have more energy than usual. Although the thought of food sounded incredible during the cleanse, I was never actually hungry. I just craved the whole eating experience which really proves that eating is tied deeply to my emotions.
