Sasha is trying to maintain a healthier lifestyle and recently did her first ever detox juice cleanse for three days. She’s such a rock star — the only detox diets I’ve done have lasted about 12 hours…until I’m mean and hungry for dinner. Go Sasha!
Combine in a blender (or really fancy juicer as pictured) and mix on high:
1 cup kale leaves
1 cup spinach
1 cucumber (Tons of benefits, including hydration & loaded with B vitamins)
1 stalk celery
1 carrot, peeled
1 Bosc pear (or apple if you prefer)
½ cup fresh parsley (which is great for cleansing your blood!)
& whatever other fruits or veggies you have lying around. Strawberries or a kiwi are more great additions
The detox consisted of consuming this juice her meals for three days. After it, Sasha felt like a new (and clean!) woman!
-Update from Sasha:
Great enthusiasm from Brooke! But those three days were not that fun. I had such a major headache from the caffeine withdrawals and my skin broke out from all the “toxins” exiting through my pores. But hey I stuck it out! It was a good way to kick-start my healthier lifestyle and I think essential for myself in getting started, but I would much rather practice healthy eating habits every day & maybe the occasional 24 hour detox. I don’t see how people do these juice diets for 14 days. More power to them! Nonetheless this is a great juice/smoothie recipe and is loaded with good stuff for you! & yummy 🙂
