Want the latest juice and 411? I’ve been pretty “pressed” for time lately but luckily, and thankfully, have still found a way to get all my greens in!
With a little schedule re-structuring and re-prioritizing I’ve been able to get down to the “root” (gosh I’m on fire) of what I’ve been missing and what I should really be putting in my body.
This, all thanks to my new weekly juice kick!
I’d tried a bunch of different “cleanses” in the past, wanting to look trendy but honestly not being able to swallow them without making an absurd face or being able to get the taste of grass out of my mouth.
I’ll be the first to admit that some juices are just brutal. BUT, after much trial and error, I’ve finally stumbled upon a cleanse collection I can not only can tolerate but actually (and I’m not making this up) ENJOY.
For me? It’s “Pressed Juicery”. And no, I promise this is not sponsored, although “Pressed” I’m certainly open to it 😉
They’re mostly located in L.A., Nor Cal, and N.Y.C. but seem to be popping up all-over the place. Here’s a list of their locations, and who knows, maybe there’s one in your very own back door:
And if not? You really don’t NEED “Pressed” to get in your greens. I’m here to break down what’s in each juice that I’m drinking so that you can either attempt making them on your own (although this is easier said than done), or find another local spot that has something close.
At “Pressed”, I’ve been buying their one-day “cleanse 2” for $34.95. Online it oddly shows it as being more expensive but I promise you at the Manhattan Beach store it’s only $34.95!
Also, I don’t “spend it all” and drink it all in only one day. Here’s the break-down (work in progress, but so far I must say, so good):
- Drink juice #1 in the morning.
- Workout at the gym.
- Drink juice #2 and #3.
- Soul Cycle in the afternoon.
- Eat dinner (“real food”).
- Drink juice #4.
- Drink “Pressed” aloe vera H20 (comes w. the cleanse).
- Drink juice #5.
- Eat lunch.
- Drink juice #6.
- Soul Cycle.
- Drink chlorophyll H2O (comes w. the cleanse).
- Cook “Plated”.
Wednesdays and Fridays I’m committing to “Freshology” (which is hardly a “commitment” in that its so darn, well, YUM!), and then Thursdays I’m a nomad until I cook the other “Plated” at night (adding a couple more juices to my Thursday “snack times” is always an option as well).
Weekends are ideally far from a “free for all” but I’m not restricting myself to a juice or meal-plan. I think it’s important to be able to eat out, enjoy and have a day or two to go with the flow.
And then? Repeat! Which your body likely will be begging for, a clean start to the new week.
If you want to join me on the juice train here are each juice’s ingredients:
Juice #1 called “Greens 2”:
Juice #2 called “Citrus 2”:
Juice #3 called “Greens 3”:
Juice #4 called “Roots 3”:
Juice #5 called “Citrus 1”:
Juice #6 called “Vanilla Almond”
Almonds, dates, vanilla bean, sea salt.
With “citrus 2” currently by my side, feeling slightly like I’m in Hawaii (minus a little rum spike, the ocean, the sun and a lei … but oh well, close enough!).
