Day one of Blueprint Cleanse

So I've cleansed for one day and it actually wasn't that bad.  The juices didn't make me wretch and I didn't cheat!  I will admit that my teeth would like something to crunch on, but I haven't been hungry and the best news is that I lost two pounds!  That wasn't the entire reason I wanted to do this, but it's a great side effect!!

The cleanse consists of six bottles of "juice" that you consume throughout the day.

#1 "Green" contains Romaine, Celery, Cucumber, Kale, Parsley, Green Apple, Spinach and Lemon.  I was initially nervous about this one.  I've had "green" health drinks before and wanted to BARF but this tasted like Parsley with a Green Apple chaser.  Kind of fresh tasting and my favorite one!  Who knew.  Which is good, because you drink this one three times during the course of the day.

#2 contains Pineapple, Apple and Mint.  This one is a little sweet with a hint of mint!  Not bad

#3 "Green" again

#4  contains Water, Lemon, Cayenne, and Agave.  This tastes like a sweet lemonade with a spicy kick from the Cayenne.  Not bad but a little sweet for my taste.

#5 "Green"

#6 is dessert, I guess.....Water, Raw Cashews, Agave Nectar, Vanilla Bean and Cinnamon.  Probably my least favorite because it had some "texture".  The others were the consistency of apple juice, but I guess the cashews made this one somewhat chunky.  The taste was great though.  Can't go wrong with Vanilla and Cinnamon in my book.


The worst part was when I had to fix Miss Charlotte a ribeye last night for dinner and not getting even a bite.  Damn, that was brutal, but I figure there will be other steaks in my life!

The only side effects I've experienced so far would be a very slight headache, but I figure that's caffeine withdrawal.  And, let's just say things didn't flow as smoothly as I would like this morning.....which was a huge surprise.  I anticipated  not being able to get too far from the bathroom today, but not the case.  The website says this was a possibility and to drink some herbal tea so I'll try that tonight.

All-in-all a good experience so far.  Two more days to go.
