Spain is in one week. So I needed to pull out all of the stops. 3-day juice cleanse baby. I chose to do the Skinny Limits Tropical Juice Cleanse for one reason alone. Pineapple. Two of the daily juices have pineapple in them and I'm a sucker for any juice with pineapple. Which is pretty amazing considering I didn't even realize that I liked pineapple until I was 19. 
Which leads me to this: I am a leeeettle bit of a picky eater. It is my curse. I particularly hate cucumber. And this guy weasels his way into every green juice out there.

So you can imagine how I feel about the first juice of the day. I'd say a little prayer of courage, plug my nose, and gulp until I had to come up for air. Moral of the story: if I can do that, you'll probably drink it and love it.
Juice number 2 is a bit of the same with a little ginger flair. Which I like. It's like a little translucent mask to all that healthy. 
But juice 3 and 5. Well that right there is a little bit of deliciousness. And this picky eater, hater of all things grown in the earth, genuinely enjoyed these guys.
So. Juice number 4. It's spicy lemonade. Now, orange chicken is spicy to me. So this juice was like delicious fire. It burned. Though I'm pretty sure my mother-in-law would love this stuff. She practically carries cayenne pepper around in her purse to add a little life to her food at any given time.
As for juice 6, everything you've heard about cashew juice is true. It DOES taste like horchata. A+ in my book

Then there are the logistics that come from drinking juice all day long.... Well, it is a detox. So don't venture too far away from a bathroom. I felt a little uncomfortable day 1, but felt great day 2 and 3. And I was never hungry. Though that doesn't mean that I didn't crave food. It's also easy because there is no thinking involved. The juice arrives at your door the day before you start and they are all numbered and ready to drink. Easy peasy. 

I'm kind of tempted to do a cleanse each season.



*Skinny Limits sent me the Tropical Juice Cleanse for review. These opinions are very much my own.

  1. I once did a raw food and juice cleanse. I had to do this yucky "green superfood" drink twice a day. I'll never forget it! But it worked! Hope you have a fab time in Spain!!

  2. Ok you are so funny- the part about the cucumber made me laugh so hard! I don't know why- but thinking about a cucumber sneaking into your fruit juice made me laugh. Love you!

  5. I had fun reading your post...I'm looking forward to Spain stories. Hope the green drinks helped! I like making my own. My favorite detox-er is parsley with lemon. It is the least mean of my mean green drinks. Lynaea @ EveryDayBloom.com
