The first time I ever juiced was almost 6 years ago. I remember everybody talking about this new thing called “THE BLUEPRINT CLEANSE”. A lot of us wanted to get rid of our baby weight and we thought a great jumpstart would be to do this cleanse. A bunch of us ordered it online and a friend of ours picked it up from the city. We all met at some random meeting spot and picked up the cleanse.
The first day was brutal. I was STARVING! I am an eater so drinking juice all day was not easy. The best part of the first day was the Cashew Milk. It is probably one of the best things I have ever had to drink (that doesn’t contain alcohol,lol). The second day got easier and by the third day I was convinced I could live on juicing. The thought of having something “real” to eat was scary. They tell you to gradually add food back over the next few days with steamed veggies, citrus juices and salad. I am going to be straight with you – it works. After cleansing your entire system for three days it is almost impossible to put something processed back in your mouth quickly. It is an amazing way to turn your eating habits around and begin to see what healthy eating “feels” like.
Once and awhile I will do a cleanse to reset my system especially after a vacation or a long holiday weekend of feasting (i.e July 4th). I discovered the “Juice Caboose” in Summit awhile back and have been buying my cleanses from them. The owners are super nice and I am a big fan of supporting local businesses. Plus their juices are terrific.
I heard a rumor a few months ago about a Juicery opening in Millburn! I was so excited, I started to research. It turns out it is true and they are planning to open the week of August 19th. It is called “Green Nectar Juicery”. All the juices are 100% organic, raw, cold-pressed juice extracted with the ultimate Norwalk Hydraulic Press (3-5x nutrients than juices made from other machines). They last up to three days in the refrigerator without any loss of vitamins, trace minerals, enzymes, flavors, or other vital elements. They have 1, 3 or 5 day cleanses available.
I came up with this awesome idea and I am hoping you think it is as incredible as I do: I am going to have a TASTING at my house next Tuesday August 13th between 10:30-11:30am! I think this would be a great way to get everyone local excited PLUS wouldn’t you love to try the juices before you make the trip to the store? The owner, Tara, is amazing!!! What I love most about the Green Nectar Juicery is …. READY….DRUMROLL PLEASE….. THEY HAVE A DELIVERY SERVICE!! Their juices are unlike the ones you have seen because the Green Nectar Juices come in GLASS bottles. When you are finished with the cleanse, rinse them out, place them at your doorstep and someone will swing by to pick up the empties. Don’t you love this? It is like the old school Milkman (btw – I get my milk delivered and can’t wait to discuss that!)
