Trying Blue Print Cleanse, Day 1 Juice 1: PAMELA PEKERMAN

Dear Bagistas,

A few months ago, while attending a twitter party at Robert Verdi's house, I was gifted a three day trial for a Blue Print Cleanse. I'm not a detoxing/ juice cleansing kind of gal, but the sample juice I tried (I believe it was Green Apple) truly tasted yummy. Last week, I finally ordered my three day cleanse at Level 1, Renovation - there are three levels depending on your experience cleansing and eating raw foods. The ordering process was simple and I saved $50 on shipping by picking it up from Exhale Spa on Central Park South (OK, actually I sent my husband to do that part). There are tons of convenient locations in the city to pick up your juices, which are heavy so be prepared, and come with ice packs and a little lunch bag for cleansing on-the-go! If I were to pay for this cleanse it would be about $180. Fortunately, I get to test it out for free and then let you know if it's worth the bucks.

I'm on "Renovation" so I get more fruity versus green juices. However, the first bottle is green - Green Lemon, to be exact. It's comprised of Romaine, Celery, Cucumber, Green apple, Spinach, Parsley and Lemon. I've been drinking for about 15 minutes and it's not going well. You should see my face! I can't deal with the tangy flavour combo, but I'm forging ahead. It is the first drink, after all. The goal is to finish this sucker in the next 20 minutes.
Benefits to keep me motivated: Lemon - contains unique flavanoid compounds that have antioxidant and anti-cancer properties. High in Vitamin C, promotes a healthy immune system.

Have you tried BP Cleanse? How did it go? Have you ever been on any cleansing program?

Have a bag-a-licious day!

No, but I should. I tell myself to drink more hot lemon water and even buy the lemons but I usually end up using them in the body scrubs I make. ;)
