Hey everyone! Happy Hump Day. Or as I'm calling it "happy-end-of-your-crash-diet-and-juice-cleanse-because-you're-going-to-palm-springs-tomorrow" day. Yeah, you read that right. I've been on my no-carb diet game for the past 7 days. (If see another egg or stalk of kale im gonna puke!) And after 6 days of cutting out all carbs cold turkey, I'd have to say today (the juice cleanse) was the hardest part.
In LA, there are no shortage of places to get your juice on. But, being myself, I picked the one that (IMO) had the sexiest branding. And was the most cost-effective. Enter Juice Served Here. The boutique juicery has locations all around LA, and their flagship is here in West Hollywood. So, I headed there this morning and picked up my juices. They have a number of recommended cleanses depending on your level of experience, etc. I kind of DIY-ed my cleanse, based on what I felt my needs were. These were a few of my favorites:
I started the morning with Green Milk - a vegetable-y blend sweetened with dates and vanilla, made creamy with almond milk. Not bad at all. I would consider starting my day like this on a regular basis. Moving on to "lunch" I had a Clean Greens Juice. This is what I think of when I think of Green Juice. Super herb-y tasting (it's filled with parsley). Not bad. Starting to wish I had a pizza, though. Finally, rounded the day out with their signature Charcoal Lemonade. Ding ding ding! We have a winner! Surprisingly delicious, despite it being filled with clay and active charcoal (this is the most detoxifying juice they sell). I was very pleasantly surprised by this one.
All in all, I don't think the cleanse was torture, and it probably does do the body some good over an extended period of time. I just found it difficult coming out of my diet the week prior. But hey, the things we do to stay pretty. Amirite?? Anyway, now that it's all over, let's just say I have some Pizza to get reacquainted with.
