I know that a lot of you have very strong feelings about juice cleanses (By the way, Garance wanted you to know she didn’t even last an hour when she tried one)…

Either you love them or hate them.

I never thought I would try a cleanse (mostly because I love food…and chewing food). I’m not doing this to lose weight (I leave for Paris on Sunday and if you think I won’t be eating my share of cheese and croissants when I arrive…well…). I’m looking at this as more of a detox. I ate a lot of crap last week. When you are on the go and busy, it’s hard to force yourself to sit down and eat a healthy meal. I’m a 99-cent slice of pizza kind of girl when things get busy.

So, today marks day one of my first juice cleanse. I’m doing the Suja 3-Day Cleanse, which came highly recommended from a friend. I’ve already broken one rule (it was more of a suggestion, really…), which was to start cutting out alcohol, caffeine, red meat, sugar and bread products in the days leading up to the cleanse. For dinner last night, which I’ve been calling the last supper, I had a beer and a peanut butter bacon cheeseburger (I know but IT WAS AMAZING OKAY). So I know going into my first day, things might be a little…challenging. I will be sure to keep you updated!

PS: The Suja juices are all organic, raw and cold-pressed.
PPS: It doesn’t help that Emily is sitting next to me eating pizza and cheese cubes…
