tips for juicing

 
 

Don’t let the colorful glow fool you; this ain’t your average quarter water. Good Part & Co. cold-pressed juices are 16 ounces of individually packaged goodness. Each juice maintains peak freshness for up to 3 days. We like to call it life in a bottle.  In order to optimize the health benefits of our juice cleanses we’d like to offer a few highly recommended tips.

Pre & Post Juice Cleanse

24-48 hours prior to your juice cleanse begin to reduce or eliminate the following from your diet:

  • All processed foods

  • Caffeine

  • Alcohol

  • Nicotine

  • Refined sugars and carbohydrates

Reducing these items gives your body the best chance to reset and not work so hard to eliminate toxins as your progress through your juices. Feel free to begin this preparation process as early as a week before you start your cleanse.

Your diet prior to and immediately following your cleanse (for 24-48 hours) should consist of whole grains, legumes, beans, green vegetables, fruit, nuts, seeds, and lots of water.

During the Juice Cleanse

Stay hydrated! Drink lots of water. Natural spring water, filtered, alkaline, or even coconut water are recommended. Water will help flush toxins, reduce cravings/hunger, and aid in digestion. So keep a bottle of water on deck!

There is no particular rule or order for consuming the juices in our plans but we recommend starting with the ginger shot and detox lemonade. Drink your juices every 2-3 hours or as you see fit to satisfy your hunger. Although it’s just juice, each bottle is technically 2 servings and shouldn’t be consumed at the speed of a sports drink. It’s suggested to drink each juice at about the same pace you would consume raw fruits and veggies. This helps with digestion, absorbing nutrients, and delays hunger.
