Watch as I get cleansed!
Before your mind starts to go places it shouldn’t, I’m doing a food cleanse (or detox, however you prefer to call it) for 3 days starting today, Friday.
I’ve selected the Kickstart Program from Joulebody, designed by wellness coach (and super sweet) Yvette Rose. My interest was peaked when I saw the cleanse reviewed by Vital Juice and I thought I would give it a go. You see, I’ve never done a juice-only cleanse before because I don’t believe that your stomach and intestines need a break from processing food (Actually, that doesn’t make sense to me AT ALL.)
That being said, I’ve always been curious about doing a juice cleanse, especially one from those fancy delivery services. I’ve been so close multiple times to signing up, but at the last minute chickened out. What’s attracted me to Joulebody is that there is FOOD. Yes, FOOD! Each day there are juices, an electrolyte rich soup, a vegan protein dinner, and a little dessert (Yes, dessert!).
Joulebody offers shipping in Manhattan, so my 3-days worth of goodies were dropped off in pretty glass bottles (although my physical therapist is going to kill me for lugging the package all the way back to Brooklyn).
Let’s see what the food looks like, shall we?
So, for the next three days I will be blogging, videoing, and tweeting my experiences of this cleanse, so please check back for updates often! Although I am a healthy eater, I have no doubt that I am going to be humbled by this experience. I’m thinking of this as a science experiment, with me as the human guinea pig!

Already I’m nervous because it doesn’t look like much food or protein, but we’ll see how I fare. I promise to give you the honest truth. And in full disclosure, I paid full price for Kickstart, so reset assured that I will be straight forward with you!
