Forget the Juice Cleanse + Embrace the Juice Project!

You may think of many things in your life as a ‘project’. A project to start eating better, to start exercising more often, to start spending more time doing the things you love. What if your project was to make the highest quality food on the planet – and deliver it to people’s doors?

That’s the inspiring story behind Project Juice – a San Francisco based company on a mission. They’ve experienced the undeniable benefits of consuming a mostly plant based diet and incorporating nutrient rich cold pressed juices into your life – and they’re here to share it with you! Project Juice delivers the ultimate wellness experience through retail stores and local delivery in both Northern and Southern California, as well as nationally through overnight delivery.

A few months out of the year (the beginning of winter, spring and summer) I get a ton of requests and questions about juice cleanses. Are they safe? Do they work? How to do them? What’s the best one?

HOW TO DO A JUICE PROJECT:

I tell all my clients, friends and family the same thing: juice cleanses, juice detoxes and juicing are amazing – but you shouldn’t need to give up solid food to enjoy the benefits! The juices extracted from fresh, raw vegetables and fruits are the means by which we can give our bodies the nutrients they need, however, most fruits and vegetables contain little to no protein or fat. Full juice cleanses are for those who need their digestive systems to take a break, such as people who are sick, recovering from sickness or morbidly obese. It’s important to remember that a juice-focused diet does not provide all of the nutrients our bodies need, so if you are going to replace an entire meal with juice, make sure it’s just a snack. Otherwise, enjoy a juice with every meal – just cut down your meal portions! Project Juice has many incredible juices and tonics to choose from – they go with any breakfast, lunch or dinner!

WHY COLD PRESSED?

Cold-pressed juice is made with a hydraulic press that uses thousands of pounds of pressure to extract the maximum amount of liquid from fresh fruits and vegetables. No additional heat or oxygen is used in the process, meaning that no nutrients are lost in the heat of traditional pasteurization. Some also believe that because of minimal heat and air exposure, cold-pressed juices contain more vitamins, minerals and enzymes.

FAVORITES

I absolutely loved all the juices I was sent from Project Juice, and have it in the calendar to stop by their location in San Diego soon to pick up some more (once my crazy move to our new house is done!) Some of the juices I tried felt more like a meal (such as the Almond and Cashew Mylk’s) and some felt like a refreshing summer beverage (like The Master and Black Magic). They were all delicious and made me feel great! I was super energized, full and my skin thanked me! Here were some of the ones I’d buy again:

Almond Mylk was delicious! With 4 super simple ingredients, this organic, cold pressed juice served as my breakfast and filled me up in just half a bottle! Yum yum. I’m still craving it… 🙂

Cashew Mylk is totally beautiful! This synergy of raw cashews, raw agave, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg are just delightful! Although I finished it in a day, Cashew Mylk took me 3 separate tries to finish the full bottle! Very filling and yummy!
