Cleanse you CAN.

It’s been a while, girls and boys. And now that the fall issue of Bisous has launched and I am *wed we can be friends again.

Before hopping back into everything that is beautiful, I want to start from the inside out!

Now, I’ve done all kinds of cleanses in the past. Everything from fasting, which I’ll never do again unless I medically need to, to powder form, to you name it. All of them were tolerable. All of them did something towards the end that was positive in some way. All of them appreciated.

And life was good. Until life became superb…

Behold, the CAN CAN CLEANSE!

Never ever EVER have I dreamed of a cleanse being delicious. Nutritious? Yes. Delicious? Never.

Here is how the story went:

On Wednesday I happen to see a Tweet from the beautiful Kat Odell [Editor at Eater LA and star of Eat, Drink, Love on Bravo].

On Thursday I arrange a drop off for the following day.

At 8:30AM on a Friday an adorable Teresa, the creator, came to my door with a smile on her face and a bag full of gorgeous glass jars filled with magic. The very next day I gave these fancy jars a whirl.

1-day Power Cleanse Schedule

I did a one day Power cleanse, though the options range from 1 to 3 to 5 days. As you can see each jar contains juices, milks, a soup and a tea (you can divide into two cups). Even more amazing – they’re seasonal! Each one was better than the other, I never felt hungry once and looked forward to discovering new flavors as the day went on. Did I mention I had tons of energy?

Woke up and did the crunchy chia juice, had the nut milk [o my god the flavours] in the car on my way to a shoot, a yummy green juice at the shoot, left the to-die-for soup in the car to warm up by the time I was done with the shoot, came home to a refreshing watermelon juice, walked around the neighborhood with all of my excess energy then came home and pounded another green juice, caught up on some friend time with the vanilla nut milk in hand and rested with two delicious cups of warm tea whilst reading the upcoming Palahniuk novel. For. The. Win.

Shame I only did the one day.

Whether you’re a cleanse aficionado or virgin, you should want nothing more than to experience this life changing cleanse. I can honestly say I’ll never touch another chalky detox again.

P.S. I chose to reuse the beautiful jars…
