A few months ago, while Miles Storm and I were out and about in Williamsburg Brooklyn I stumbled upon a bottle of Blue Print Cleanse’s freshly pressed organic Cashew Nut, Agave, Vanilla and Cinnamon drink (AKA known as White Juice). It was amazing and we both fought over the last drop…. seriously! I took a photo of that moment and put it up through the Willy B Mum twitter feed tagging Blue Print Cleanse on it.
What happened next was really cool, with social media at it’s finest I was approached by the company and asked if I would like to be a BLOG contributor on their site & do their 3 day cleanse for FREE. I mean, how amazing is that. I was so excited, especially as over the July 4th period my husband and I had a 10 day holiday, drinking way too much wine! I was feeling a bit bloated and lazy, so a good kick in the bum not being able to eat for 3 days was a God Send.
WHY CLEANSES ARE GOOD FOR YOUR BODY
Going along with the idea that The Best Medicine is no Medicine, giving your body a break from not having to digest foods can do wonders. Other benefits of doing a cleanse include giving you clarity of mind, giving your liver a break, helping to stimulate your metabolism, ridding your body of unwanted pounds, increasing energy and vitality, kick starting your metabolism and helping to eliminate body stress (among other things).
A few years ago my husband and I did the 10 day master cleanse which involved not eating anything at all! The only thing we consumed was a drink of maple syrup, cayenne pepper, lemons and water. Every morning we also had to drink a big cup of salt water. Can you imagine? It was really hard but we did it and it was such a feeling of accomplishment.
In comparison, a 3 day cleanse of vegetable juice was a walk in the park for me. I chose the hardest level that Blue Print offers, the excavation level being 4 green juices, one spicy lemonade and my favorite the cashew milk. The first day was most difficult especially having to prepare Miles Storm’s food! I nearly accidentally ate a few times. By Day 2 though I was on such a mental high, I had more energy and was more focused with everything being a lot clearer (if that makes sense). I worked out every day, and continued to breastfeed my Son the whole way through without any issues. Oh yeah, I also lost 5 pounds and my skin is now flawless.
I cannot rave enough about what a wonderful experience it was. By the time I had finished the cleanse I was loving it so much that I decided not to eat for a 4th day. Also, I have decided to stop eating dairy and seafood which I did occasionally, yes I am now committed to following a 100% vegan diet. I just felt so good consuming a plant-based diet! I understand this is not for everybody but I am really happy about my choice – it works for me.
Additionally, I am considering doing a 3 day cleanse not eating every week from Tuesday to Thursday, I just have to figure out if I can make that work doing it from home myself. It might be a little adventurous but if anybody has any suggestions please let me know as I am all ears.
