In May, I did my first-ever juice cleanse (you can read all about it here). Since then, I’ve done a 3-day juice cleanse every 30 days, making this recent one my 5th cleanse!
When I was ordering the juices for this cleanse and realized how many I’d done so far, it almost made me laugh. I’m someone who thought a juice cleanse of any kind was IMPOSSIBLE.
When I went to Louisiana this summer, a friend asked me, “What’s with your juice cleanse obsession?”
I don’t have a magical story about how I got started, I was just really feeling in a rut with food — I felt like I’d gotten off-track, and it was difficult finding my way back to a more healthy diet.
A radio show I listen to sometimes talks about a juice cleanse they do — so I ordered that exact brand.
Not only did the cleanse give me a nice reset, but it also helped me see many of my food habits.
So, I decided to do one every 30 days. One month between each cleanse gives me time to eat regularly, of course, but it’s not long enough for me to go off the rails. Just when I feel like throwing all my healthy food out the window, it’s time for another juice cleanse!
I’ll admit that a juice cleanse isn’t necessarily fun, but I’ve come to enjoy a few aspects of it, including having 3 days of:
- Not having to figure out what to eat
- Having a clean kitchen — no dishes or messy counters
- Having extra time (since I’m not cooking or cleaning the kitchen) to do other things
Anyway, let’s get into the Pressed cleanse.
Before this one, I’d been alternating between Squeezed cleanses and Juiceland cleanses. I like both of them for different reasons.
I really like the price point of Squeezed and the fact that it’s delivered right to your doorstep. I like the flavor profiles of Juiceland’s juices better, but I don’t like that you have to go pick out each one (I get so much anxiety doing this), and it’s more expensive.
I was about to place an order for Squeezed when I decided to do a quick Google search and see if there was anything out there I might want to try.
I immediately saw Pressed and recognized the label from the grocery. I’d seen their juices and juice shots at Sprouts several times.
They had many options, offered delivery, and the price-point seemed doable.
While they do have pre-made cleanses, I sort of made my own. Over these last few months, I’ve learned that I really only drink 3-4 juices per day + one nut milk. Premade cleanses usually have five juices and milk, which is just too much.
So, I bought two one-day cleanses and a few ala carte juices to get what I needed. I like a mix of fruit-based juices and green ones. I also got a mix of chocolate and vanilla almond milk.
The price was right in the middle of the other two cleanses I’ve tried, and it was delivered to my front door within the HOUR! I was stunned!
I’m not sure if this is helpful, but I really liked ALL of the juices I got.
They had unique flavor profiles, and I felt excited to try each one. They were a little lighter in texture than Juiceland’s, and they had fewer calories.
I did notice that I felt hungrier on this cleanse than others, and I think it’s because of the lighter juices. The milk also had fewer calories than the milk on other cleanses.
I don’t worry about calories while on a cleanse, it’s just something I notice 🙂
I will say I had a small feeling of lightheadedness on day one — my first time ever really feeling bad on a cleanse — but it went away after a bit of rest.
I’ve been struggling with the physical effects of stress lately, so it’s difficult to know if this feeling resulted from the cleanse or something else.
This cleanse actually settled some other stress-related problems I was having, and for that I’m thankful!
I’ll definitely be ordering from Pressed again.
