Day 1 – check.
Wanna know what I ate today? I’ll give you a hint… you can slurp it all up through a straw. That’s right, I just finished the first day of my 3-day BluePrint Cleanse – Foundation Level. The juices are all raw & unpasteurized and quite tasty I might add! I started off my day with Green Juice, which was filled with Romaine, Celery, Cucumber, Kale, Parsley, Green Apple, Spinach, Lemon.
Since I did the Foundation level, there were actually three of these spread through the day (juices 1, 3 and 5). The next juice was one of my favorites… the Pineapple, Apple & Mint Juice. Yummers! …followed by another Green Juice.
Juice numero cuatro was a Spicy Lemonade made out of Lemon, Agave and Cayenne Pepper. I seriously love this juice regardless of how gross it sounds. I’ve heard people say it’s similar to the Master Cleanse, but I’ve never tried that one so I have to trust their word on that. …followed by the final Green Juice.
This drink is a mix of Raw Cashews, Vanilla, Cinnamon and Agave and tastes like heaven in a bottle. Ever since my first time doing the BPC I have actually started making this drink in my Vita-Mix quite regularly. It helps to soak the cashews when making it yourself, but the Vita-Mix is so crazy powerful you almost don’t have to.
How do I feel? Quite good actually! I normally eat mainly vegan with the occasional sushi/sashimi dinner so I didn’t have much “preparation” to do before this. Last time I think my body was being filled with a lot more junk so I experienced some detox side effects like headache, fatigue and nausea, but this time so far so good. At work today I was kind of cold, but then again I’m normally cold at work… I was actually even able to hit the gym and get a swim in! I limited myself to 1/2 mile so as not to burn myself out because I want to be able to go to spin class tomorrow.
Ok chickadees, I know it’s only 8:48pm, but I’m off to get ready for bed. Although it is a nutritional cleanse and provides lots of vitamins and still gives you 1,250 calories. Not a ton, but way more than most “fasts”.
