7 day juice cleanse

After a week of visiting friends and eating outside of my normal routine, food quality and calorie intake; my body needed a cleanse. How? With a juice cleanse, check these 6 juice options out for a 7 day plan. 

Before I get started, I want to clarify that this is not a plan that I came up with on my own.  A friend of mine shared this with me and I changed it up a bit and renamed the juices because I don’t remember what they were originally called.

Before we start, here are some tips: 

  1. If any of the ingredients in any of the recipes are not of your liking, feel free to substitute them for others. For example: some of the recipes include grapes but if you don’t like grapes, you can add strawberries instead as they are both antioxidants.
  2. Its recommended to have 4 to 6 juices a day of about 16 to 20 ounces each.
  3. Be sure to drink plenty of water, at least one glass after each juice.
  4. If you are normally a heavy eater (high calorie consumption) you may get headaches and strong cravings the first 2 to 4 days. You can choose to blend the ingredients so that you take advantage of the fibers and feel fuller rather than juicing them
  5. You can also choose to eat one meal a day and juice the rest of the meals but be sure to consume raw and vegan foods.
  6. DO NOT add sugar or salt to any of these juices. Add spices like cinnamon or mint instead.
  7. Add super foods like chia seeds, spirulina or moringa to make your juices super nutritious.
  8. DO NOT go over the 7 day plan on your own, seek professional advice if you want to do this for more than 7 days.
