We have committed ourselves to The 10 Day Smoothie Cleanse by JJ Smith!
Yep you read that correctly. This morning makes day #5… only 5 more days to go!! Alleluia
So why the heck do we “torture” ourselves like this?!?!? I was asking myself that question by day 2. However, in all honesty it really hasn’t been too bad, a little uncomfortable at times, but thats about it. The why is because we both wanted to fully cleanse our systems and basically hit reset.
About a year and a half ago I was forced to do a smoothie cleanse due to becoming allergic to milk protein – my stomach was completely swollen and I couldn’t eat anything else. The cleanse worked beautifully. My stomach returned to normal and all my symptoms were gone. And a bonus was I lost about 12 pounds + felt amazing.
With the above past experience we decided to do a cleanse together. (It is so much better when you do it with someone else.) Even though we eat a plant powered diet (90% plants 10% meet) we have found ourselves eating things that are not the best for us… coconut ice-cream, vegan pizza, homemade vegan cookies, veggie loaded baked potatoes topped with vegan sour cream – you get the picture. We needed to reel it in.
If you would like a day by day update of the cleanse follow us on Instagram @hornpd https://www.instagram.com/hornpd and watch our story. I have shared how we had been feeling along the way. The last day of the cleanse we will do a blog post sharing the entire day to day journey.
