Cleanse Juice Cleanse 21 Day Cleanse | How To Start Your Juice Cleanse?

None2014 – time to start your engines! And by engines I mean start your juicers.

I like to call January “Juice January” because many of you already know that. It has been a tradition for the past 3 years to start the year with a juice cleanse. I would love for you to be with me this year. I juice all day and eat a clean meal for dinner. I will be sharing some of my favorite juice combinations and would love to hear your go-to juice recipes as well.

I use a Breville Juice Fountain, which I love but any juicer will do.

NoneMy plan starts on January 2 and will go for 21 days (3 weeks). This cleanse is a little different because if you know me I like everything in moderation. I am not an extreme type when it comes to cleansing or anything for that matter, so with that said here’s my meal plan everyday for 21 days.

The sample menu is for 21 days of juice cleanse.

Juice in the morning – I like 1 orange,1 mango, 1 cucumber, and handful of parsley

Juice mid morning snack – I like 3 cups kale, half inch piece of ginger,  3 apples

Lunch Juice – I like 3 cups Kale, 5 carrots, and half lemon and 1 pear

Mid afternoon snack Juice – I like 1 large Beet, 3 Carrots and  3 cups Kale, and 3 stalks of celery

Dinner – a light meal. I love a salad, make sure to make yours colorful. Be creative! Keep it interesting with textures and colors. Pair your salad with a protein like chicken or fish as well as a steamed veggie like broccoli or green beans. I also like including a half cup of lentils, pinto or white beans. Soup is an amazing dinner while on a cleanse. I’ll be sharing a few yummy soup recipes as we go along.

Why do a juice cleanse?

To give your GI system a break from processed foods and having to work hard to break down our daily intake of food is the point of this. It’s a good idea to stay away from anything that’s been packaged for 21 days.

Coffee?? You might be asking yourself about coffee… My thinking is that a cup of coffee is not going to kill you. Remember, I am not into torture. Just make a good cup will you? 🙂 

What can you expect?

As you get used to your liquid diet, week one is a bit of an adjustment.

Week two is when you get into the swing of things and look forward to juicing.

You are feeling great after three weeks. You can expect to lose a few pounds, but you will still feel great. Yes, I am happy.

Let me know how things are going. I will keep an eye on it a couple of times a week. Have a question about it? I will get back to you after you leave it in the comment section.

I’m going to say “let’s juice” instead of “let’s party”.

Oh and don’t forget to watch me on the Today Show on Tuesday December 31st for New Year’s Eve! in the 9:00 hour. What a fantastic way to wrap up the year!

Happy New Year. It is going to be a great year.

I am not a doctor and this is not a weight loss program. I like the way I feel and this plan is what I do. This is not a program that is done in a certain way.

 

new years, recipes
