Juicing Guide and Resources
Ready to dive in? We've got your back! Our expanded guide includes community resources to help you stay supported in your healthy habits going forward.
First off, your green drinks -- Army, Tropical and Breezy Greens -- are ideal for your main meals, with Gold Rush, Heart Beet and any bonus Seasonal Specials filling in for snacks.
If your package came with a Ginger Bomb, here are a few ways to drink it:
If you can manage it, drink lots of water in addition to your juice. We like to add a 4 oz Ginger Bomb to six 16 oz bottles of water and drink two bottles per day in addition to the juice.
Feel free to carry on with your normal activities and light exercise. You should have lots of energy throughout your Feast!
If you find yourself absolutely having to chew on something, modify your Feast by adding in veggies, fruit, nuts, beans or rice. Avoid caffeine, alcohol and refined sugar for best results.
If you have chia seeds (included in the Three Day Juice Feast), you can sprinkle them in your juice and let them soak overnight for an extra-filling boost of protein. Or, make chia pudding by mixing 1/4 cup chia seeds into 1 cup coconut milk and letting it soak overnight. You can add fruit, maple syrup, vanilla -- any of your favorite breakfast boosts!
Help your body ease into and out of your Juice Feast by loading up on organic whole foods before and after. Then keep it up! Juicing is a great way to jump-start healthy habits.
We never pasteurize our products, so please keep them refrigerated and consume them within two days after the "best by" date on the cap.
Headaches/bodyaches and pains: A normal reaction to caffeine and sugar withdrawal; these will ease up by the third day.
Bloating/flatulence: A common side-effect as the body adjusts to a sudden influx of soluble fruit and vegetable fiber, nutrients and enzymes. It should pass quickly, but if it persists, try eating a fermented food or taking a probiotic.
Skin breakouts: Any big change in your diet -- even a positive change! -- can temporarily affect skin, which is our body's largest eliminative organ. Extra water and exercise can support the process.
Strong cravings: If you can get through these cravings in the first two days, you'll find it way easier to cut back on sugar, caffeine, animal products and alcohol going forward.
