Urban Remedy graciously sent me a 3-day, level 3 cleanse, complete with 18 juices. I tend to shy away from sugar, including natural sugars such as fruit, etc, so I was hesitant to embark on a juice based cleanse. After carefully assessing the ingredients, I was quickly reassured. My level 3 cleanse includes a green superfood smoothie, green detox juices, an alkalising chlorophyll, mint elixir, spicy lemon, and nut milk. Six juices/mixtures for 3 days.
My delivery arrived on Friday, but I began preparing my body for the detox well in advance. I started by eliminating all caffeine, sugar, and nuts. I drank warm water with lemon first thing in the morning and tweaked my exercise from high yang (boxing, running, weight training) to more yin (yoga and walking).
I also whipped up my classic green concoction of avocado, spinach, and nut milk. Sounds gross, but I like to think of it as a delectable green pudding. Trust me, when you're about to detox for three days, you'll appreciate the pre-detox-green-pudding-sludge.

"Your body is a temple. Keep it clean". I couldn't agree more. Time to sip juice, practice yoga, sleep, and meditate for three whole days.
Day 1 is almost done and I'm feeling good. Slightly lethargic, but good. I'll share a breakdown of each juice with you all soon ;)
