Kickstart Your Holiday Energy With This 24-hour Juice Cleanse

by Heather Ferber on November 21, 2016

The holiday season can get a bit crazy with too many treats, fancy cocktails, and dining out on the run.  Getting healthy or staying healthy for the holidays can feel like a challenge.

Whether you’re thinking about jumping on the healthy living train for the holidays (good for you!), or you have been leading a healthy lifestyle for years, a juice cleanse is an easy way to get your body back on track and into the craving more healthy mode.

So enjoy the turkey and fixings this week and then jump back into healthy!

A mini 24-hour juice cleanse is a great starting point, and will jumpstart your wellness, push out toxins and diseased cells, and nourish good cells that are starved of nutrients. A juice cleanse also lets your digestive system, one of the most important parts of your body, take a much-needed break and regenerate (which we all desperately need during this time of year!).

Of course, it may sound brutal drinking only fruits and veggies for an entire day and forgoing the food, but the magnificent benefits outweigh any discomfort you may experience. It’s natural to experience side effects such as bad breath and body odor, stomach cramps, nausea, weakness, exhaustion and foul-smelling stools. And if these side effects make you weary of fasting, just think of all the toxins that are wreaking havoc on your body. Those toxins are stuck in your cells unless you cleanse. If this isn’t your first rodeo, your side effects should not be as noticeable.

Before starting this cleanse, be sure to purchase a juicer. Or source out a local juice manufacture who may be able to help you out.  I have a Breville juicer that I use for mini-cleanses like this.  Sometimes I place a custom, very specific juice order at Whole Foods or a local juice bar. You can juice all recipes in the morning and store in the fridge, or you can make a juice at each meal. I recommend glass Mason jars to store juice.

Be sure to also have lots of water available as well as herbal tea to drink throughout the day. Be prepared to limit physical exertion.
