I’ve finally shared all the info on my first juice cleanse experience a couple months ago. If you live in SA and want to give it a go, head to BODHI CLEANSE website and use the coupon code ‘Claire’ to receive a 10% discount, more of my pics and my thoughts on the cleanse below xxxx Claire.
I’ve been wanting to try a juice cleanse for a really long time. I’ve always been super passionate about health and nutrition, however I am also a big believer in balance (hello chocolate wine and more wine on the weekends) and LOVE food so I never thought I’d be able to actually survive one ha!!!! I stumbled on Bodhi Cleanse a few months ago, a local Adelaide company making 100% organic pressed juice in recyclable glass bottles, and the clincher for me – DELIVERED to your door. I was feeling super run down and the biggest appeal for me was the massive hit of vitamins, I decided to give it a go.
The flavours are awesome. I’m more of a green juice and morning coffee kind of girl (then usually on to all the food) so the sweetness was a pleasant surprise to me. By the end of day one I didn’t feel hungry at all, it was actually coolish weather over the days I took on the cleanse, so I warmed up the Almond Milk night cap and sprinkled with cinnamon at night and went to bed feeling full – YUM. such a comforting and delicious way to end the day.
By day 2 I was getting a little peckish (read HANGRY haaaa! not really super hangry but hungry all the same) so I upped the fibre provided with the juices and added them to all my drinks over the first half of the day. It helped so much and I think more than anything what I was feeling in the morning were caffeine withdrawals because by the afternoon I always felt totally fine or if anything MORE energetic than I usually am during a post lunch PM slump! I was at this point looking forward to the cleanse coming to an end I can’t lie. HOWEVER.. randomly, by the end of day 3 I felt totally fine! I never would have thought I could survive a 5 day cleanse and while I was more than happy to indulge in breakfast on the morning of day 4, I could have totally kept going by that point! By day 3 I had broken the back of it and was enjoying the benefits of all those condensed nutrients – so much that I think next time I’ll actually try the 5 day cleanse!
You also receive as part of the cleanse this gorgeous coconut body scrub to help draw impurities from the inside out! so delish.
For those living in Adelaide you can use the coupon code ‘Claire’ to receive a 10% discount on any cleanse order (this is not sponsored content btw, just awesome people with a delicious healthy product that I’m so happy to endorse!) So in summary, I did the 3 day cleanse, here’s the info!
“This is the most popular Bodhi Cleanse program. In a 3 day cleanse you will receive 15 cold pressed juices, 3 nut mylks, a fibre blend, detoxifying bath crystals and a skin brush.
When doing a cleanse these juices, the fibre blend and fresh, filtered water is all you consume.
We believe that cleansing should happen from the inside out, whole body. This is why you will also receive a fibre blend to be taken daily and a delicious, vegan, cruelty free body scrub.”
My objective wasn’t really to lose weight, but I naturally did. More importantly I felt energetic and my skin was glowing afterwards. Since then we’ve been on a few holidays including the Hawaii trip, the madness of the end of school year has reeked havoc on my usually healthy diet, and now the silly season has well and truly begun. I’m absolutely craving these juices and I will definitely be trying the 5 day cleanse in January, I actually can’t wait! xx Claire
