A Lenten Cleanse

Standard

Last month, a bunch of us bought the Groupon for the 3-Day Juice Cleanse from Peeled. Well, it’s finally time to cash in the Groupon and rid my body of its toxins. BLB and I are doing our cleanse starting tomorrow morning. Every two hours, we’ll have to drink 16 oz. of things like romaine lettuce, parsley and cashews. Yum?

Since we’re doing this, we’re holing ourselves up and away from society the next three days. That means the big KU/MU game tomorrow? We’ll be watching from home. In sweats. And we’ll find refuge in books and movies to keep ourselves sane this weekend.

Overall, reviews of the cleanse have been positive. So I should come out on the other side of this alive and not ready to ravage anything edible come Tuesday.

And I figured, what better way to start the Lenten season then by getting rid of all the bad stuff?

Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner the next 3 days

The Juice is Loose

Standard

Yesterday’s, and today’s, Groupon was for Peeled, a juice bar in Lincoln Park. The offering: a 3-day juice cleanse. After much deliberation, I bought it.

Then like a true girl, I made Molly buy it to do it with me. Then I somehow talked LeBaron into buying one this morning. “Misery loves company!”

Bit nervous about this juice cleanse. Seeing as I like eating. And drinking coffee and wine. Especially when all of these things happen in restaurants surrounded by friends. I haven’t decided if it’s worse to do the cleanse during the week at work or on the weekend. Both carry their pseudo-pros and cons.

But at any rate, it’s just a matter of time before I start drinking veggies and fruit juices every two hours.

Gulp.
