2-Day Cheap Juice Cleanse | Easy Weekend Juice Fast
– 2-DAY WEEKEND JUICE CLEANSE
This weekend I did a budget-friendly, 2-day mini juice cleanse to help get rid of some bloating and give my digestion a break so that it could jump-start healing.
– FREE PRINTABLE GROCERY CHECKLIST
The fruits and veggies you’ll need to do a juice cleanse like this are listed on the blog (post linked above) along with the free print-out grocery checklist.
– PRODUCE SWAPS TO SAVE $$$:
On a budget, you really need to be flexible, that means going with whatever produce is the most affordable during the current season in your local area, so feel free to swap out cheaper produce for what I’ve listed above. (TIP: unripe fruit is often cheaper, and is great for juicing since it tends to be lower in sugar!) The key here is to swap in similar-tasting stuff, that means mild should be swapped for mild, and sweet for sweet, etc. Remember to always swap by weight, not size, because some produce is very dense and others are very “fluffy”, so you’ll get unexpectedly different amounts of juice from different sized stuff. For my recommendations on what to swap for what, check out the full blog post linked above.
– AFFORDABLE JUICERS:
The cheapest one:
BLACK+DECKER 400-Watt Fruit and Vegetable Juice Extractor: https://amzn.to/2Ky9v9b
Best under $150:
Breville RM-JE98XL Juice Fountain: https://amzn.to/2N7FfjF
The most $$$ option for if you want a good investment :
Vitamix 5300 Low-Profile Blender: https://amzn.to/2lEGk6b
(this is actually a high-power professional blender, but it’s the best option in my opinion because it liquifies the veggies + fruit, so you keep all the fiber, but you don’t taste it!)
How to Use a Normal Blender to Make Juice:
Go to 15:45??? mark in my video above to see how I used my average-power blender + a strainer to juice one of my meals for this cleanse.
– BLOOD SUGAR AND INSULIN ISSUES:
If you’re like me and you have a family history of insulin issues (insulin is the hormone that regulates your blood sugar), then a juice cleanse can be a little difficult since you’re getting a ton of carbs/sugar into your system all at once, without the fiber, fat, or protein that would’ve been mixed in if you’d eaten the same produce with a full meal. My hack to deal with this is to pair a juice cleanse with intermittent fasting. That means drinking all your juices within a 6 or 8-hour “eating window” and then not taking in any more calories for the rest of the day. This is not only great for digestive healing, it’s also great for managing insulin issues. Learn more about intermittent fasting here: https://youtu.be/dFT2IKmwyfg
