Day 1 of a 5-Day Organic Avenue Love Deep.
baseline: despite being vegan this past year+, i’ve definitely let some bad habits slip in: two fully-caffeinated sugary Starbucks drinks a day, tons of cooked stuff, candy galore and…oh hi, carbs!
mood: apprehensive. based on the above, i was expecting Day 1 to be painful: headaches, moodiness and major bitchiness. oddly enough, none of it. which leads me to believe the worst is still to come. (yikes!)
activity level: day 1 was a Sunday, so tried to keep it low key. went to a 90-minute Jivamukti yoga class before i started my cleanse, then lounged around the rest of the day watching bad-but-good movies (Miss Congeniality, Titanic, Twilight)…and also squeezed in a massage. anticipating the worst, i decided to take it easy.
the menu: i specifically asked for there to be “more” calories, since i wanted to continue my daily workout regime during the cleanse. today’s total calorie count: 1,054
- CLOROPHYLL SHOT: this is included every day. just tastes…GREEN (0 calories)
- COCONUT WATER: 86 calories
- GRAPEFRUIT JUICE: 145 calories
- GINGER LEMONADE: 168 calories
- VEGGIE VIBE: 146 calories
- GREEN LOVE: 166 calories
- COCONUT MYLK: 343 calories
the verdict: loved the flavor of every single juice today. in the past, i’ve had not-so-great times with some of the green soups, but thankfully, no green soups on this menu! energy levels are decent…but we’ll see what happens tomorrow when i have to go to work and be functioning member of society!
