This morning I started my day with a green juice from The Ripe Stuff. Their green juice flavor is called Mojito, for the inner partier in all of us, and is made with kale, celery, spinach, romaine, cucumber, green apple, lemon and ginger. It actually does taste kind of like a Mojito. So what am I doing drinking this stuff?
In California, I had my first juice and was shocked at how it made me feel instantly energized. I’m a little sad there is no Earth Bar in Boston to be honest. I looked to find local Boston juicing companies and was happy to find The Ripe Stuff. A small company, started by another twenty-something, The Ripe Stuff Cleanse is geared towards 1-3 day cleanses, however, I’m just substituting my breakfast or snack for a juice right now.
I borrowed Crazy, Sexy, Diet by Kris Carr from my friend Maggie when I got back from LA to read up on the benefits of juicing. While I’ve only read a couple of chapters, I’ve found there to be a lot of useful takeaways for non-vegans.
Have you ever tried a juice cleanse? If so, which one? Where you able to make it the whole day?
I have said in the past I didn’t think they were entirely necessary but the few that I’ve drunk, have made me feel so energetic and renewed that I’m intrigued and may have to try a full on 3-day adventure.
