green #1 / beet #1Early last week I found out that my cousin got her blueprint cleanse! Color me jealous. I was all over her texting questions about it. She gave me a blow of bad news though. It doesn't taste good. Crap. Now I was really feeling hesitant about placing my own order. I mean, if I'm going to spend the cash I had better be able to choke that stuff down. I did a little interweb research and what-do-ya-know, Whole Foods sells the blueprint cleanse juices ala cart. I can buy them and try them, before committing. So. Stoked. I planned to venture my rear end to Whole Foods over the weekend and try each flavor.
pear & cayenne / carrot & coconut
Skip to last Thursday. I got home for lunch and while I was waiting for my protein shake to blend I browsed my Twitter feed. Guess what? DROUGHT was up and running for business. Raw, fresh, organic juice and just a few blocks away from me! Again, SO. STOKED. More than stoked even. I went the next morning and between the fresh juice and the Pearl Jam greatest hits cd playing, my Friday was off to the best possible start. I spent the day spreading the word about Drought and my obsession grew to new heights. I tried a few more flavors on Saturday morning and then spent the rest of the weekend regretting that I only bought two bottles. Drought offers their own juice cleanse options and while I was there on Friday, one of the ladies working told me how, as a company, they all had done a 4 day cleanse. On Sunday I ordered my own juice for a 4 day cleanse and yesterday was day one. I don't know if I was just in the right mind set to start this cleanse or it's just that good, but I'm feeling so good and I have so much energy. I could feel differently come Saturday so talk to me then. Or maybe talk to me tonight when I go to the movies to finally see Les Miserables at the little theatre by my house and I can't get my absolute favorite movie snack...popcorn submerged in butter. I know it's awful for you, but damn it I love it! Now you can see why I need to cleanse on occasion. ;)
