Hi, are there any juice addicts over there?
Now that May is in full swing and I have a busy schedule coming up I decided it was time to prepare myself for the coming summer. While browsing my Foodora app I found The Cold Pressed Juicery, a super chique juicebar with multiple locations in Amsterdam. It has been quite a while since I had done a cleanse and felt like it was time to start a juice cleanse again. In a couple of minutes I ordered a Medium One Day cleanse together with a pack of shots and a detoxing tea. 30 Minutes later the doorbell rang, there was my Foodora Deliverer and I was ready to go for it.
Why Do a Cleanse?
For me there are several reasons to do it! I personally believe in giving your body a boost, and a cleanse is the perfect way in order to be ready for the warm season. All the juices from The Cold Pressed Juicery are, as the name says, cold pressed. This technique ensures you are getting all the vitamins and minerals you need while drinking your juices. I find it very convenient to drink juices, it’s so easy and instantly gives me more energy. The feeling of taking good care of your body has always given me so much motivation. After a day of only having juices I always feel more energised and more comfortable in my own skin. I could recommend anybody to give it a try!
What I Experience
What I experience during a juice cleanse is a feeling I can’t really describe. I love that The Cold Pressed Juicery offers a pack of different shots which really boost your cleanse and gave me a very satisfied feeling. I drunk a ginger shot (which boosts immunity), wheatgrass (which cleanses), aloe vera (helps digestion), e3live (which controls cravings) and turmeric (which purifies blood and liver) between each juice. During the cleanse you drink 6 different bottles full of vegetables and fruits, giving you that ultimate detox experience.
Every 2 hours I drunk a shot together with a juice. In between the juices I tried to drink as much water as possible. In the past I had done cleanses as well but this time I experienced a different feeling. These juices were actually filling and giving me easy time. After some shopping in the city we had some tea time at home. I made a large pot of the detox tea which Emma (from TCPJ) gave me. The soothing tea really gave me a relaxed feeling, bringing me calmness and got me through my juice day very easily.
Now that I have finished my cleanse, I feel more energised and I feel that my body really got the boost that I needed. Did I loose weight? Not really, but the next morning I did experience I felt more comfortable in my skin, my stomach seemed more flat and I wasn’t craving as much for food as I was before! A big win for me!
I really enjoyed my cleanse with The Cold Pressed Juicery and plan on doing a longer cleanse again. Have you ever done a cleanse?
