Juice Cleanse Made Simple
Have you ever tried doing a juice cleanse?
I am by no means a juice cleansing expert like our good friend Olivia Budgen, however I have done a few in the last couple of years and I must say, they are a really effective, gently and nourishing way to give your body a good spring clean. If you know what I mean… ?
Read my blog article here about about why detoxification is so important.
I’ve done a few juice cleanses before which has always involved doing my own juicing at home. Recently I decided to road-test a 3 day juice cleanse which was prepared for me by the lovely people at Evole Organics.
Considering most of our clients are busy professionals who either don’t have the time to be juicing themselves (at least initially) or it’s simply not high on their priority list– sourcing a good quality juice cleanse which is prepared fresh for you, makes doing a cleanse much more doable.
There are soooo many boutique juice shops, health food stores, online bloggers etc, selling juices and juice cleanse programs now. Which is great as long as you can spot the real deal from the band-wagon bandits.
It was really important to me that the juices were:
- Organic – one of the touted benefits of juicing is that you are getting a high concentration of beneficial nutrients in one go. But if that same produce has been treated with chemical pesticides and fertilisers, these also will be in highly concentrated amounts in your juice. Which kind of defeats the purpose of doing a detox or cleanse.
- Cold Pressed – This simply means the produce is compressed and squeezed to extract the juice, which often means you get more from the produce and less waste. This is a much gentler approach then the cheaper centrifugal method which introduces heat and oxygen to the produce that can damage the enzyme and nutrient quality.
- Bottled in Glass – we are bombarded with plastic everything today which is having an incredible toll on our health and the environment. Plastics contain all sorts of Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals which real havoc on our hormonal systems. Glass is a much cleaner safer alternative for you, your juice and the planet.
Enter Evole Organics… They ticked all my boxes plus I could order online and have it delivered – winning!
Whenever Steve and I are making a purchase towards our wellbeing and the health industry at large, it’s also really important to us that the ethics and philosophy of the company are aligned with our own and the greater good. We really look at whether they have our health and the health of the planet as a high priority or whether they are just in it for the profit.
Where you spend your money matters. Companies and governments make important decisions based on our spending habits. If we don’t like certain practices or the state of certain situations, we can change it by what we give our money to. Be part of the solution, not the problem. You can be very powerful and influential.

For me, considering that I eat a pretty healthy diet, the 3 day Thrive Juice Cleanse was a perfect reboot and reset. I was left feeling light, refreshed and nourished afterwards with an increase in energy and mental clarity.
As the website suggests, if you are new to juice cleansing, go for the Introductory Cleanse which has a bit more fruits making it more palatable and gentle for your first time around.
