My JusJus Detox Experience
My first thought about Green Day upon opening the bottle: Ehhm, you smell… green. My first thought after tasting Green Day: hey you are surprisingly tasty! I somehow expected the juices to be thick and lumpy (which is due to my own previous –pathetic– attempts at blending greens) but they aren’t at all. My first liquid meal of the day goes down rather easy – it took me an hour to finish it, and I drank it whilst getting ready for work. Oh yeah, I didn’t schedule my detox on a day off like any normal person would have – there’s work to be done and I hope I won’t lose my mind!
My mom drops by at work and since I can’t have any actual lunch, we decide to have a drink on a terrace. I order a flat water and alternate between my juice and my drink. I become rapidly fed up with the taste of The Hulk and have to wash down my sips of green with a gallon of water. Suffice to say I’m not the most pleasant company at this point. As the hours pass, my appetite for something sweet only increases. ‘I want candy‘ is my anthem of the day and everywhere I go I am being confronted with food. I cave and munch on one (tiny, I swear) sweetie and am instantly punished with a crazy headache. Thanks karma!
Plan for the evening? A cosy night in! Watch telly, snuggle and casually eat an entire truckload of food – or not? While I watch Astrid and De Lau visit Whole Foods and throw all kinds of deliciously looking food in their shopping cart, I sip on my Almond Joy and am glad this day is almost over. I add two paracetamols to my food intake and call it a day.
I actually liked some of the juices and will be doing another juice detox in the future, but I’ll make sure to plan it on a day off – no work, no social activities, just me, myself and I, all alone on the couch!
