- "I have only tried the green juice and it literally tastes like someone threw an entire salad with lemon dressing in a juicer." in 6 reviews
- "My favorite of all of their juice products is the Cashew Milk with cinnamon, agave, and vanilla, but to buy it on its own at Whole Foods, it costs almost $12." in 6 reviews
- I thought it was a great experience for me. Glad I did it. My friends felt the same.
- I eat too much cheese and I do far too much random, unhealthy snacking.
The price: the three-day cleanse (6 juices per day) cost me $205 (and that’s with a group discount since I had three friends joining me). That means each juice was $11.39. That’s a lot! I think I need to invest in a Breville juicer next time and put together my own cleanse by doing some web research!
The prep: I feel like BluePrint should have a little more guidance on the 3-day prep prior to the cleanse. There were some very brief messages- eat fruit, mostly raw veggies, etc., but my friends and I wanted more. To be fair, they do have a book that they sell on their website, so perhaps you need to purchase that to gain access to more guidance. The prep was definitely the most difficult part of the cleanse process for me.
The broth: Vegetable broth isn’t very good, but it’s much better (and so easy!) to make homemade. It would be terrific if the BP folks included a recipe for vegetable broth within their instructions or pamphlet.
Favorite pre/post snack: Cucumber with avocado and tomato- with a squeeze of lime. Raw almonds or pecans.
The juices: I really only enjoyed the PAM juice and the cayenne lemonade. The cashew milk was okay the first couple of nights, but it became tiresome the third night. I eat a ton of vegetables, but I’m not a green-juice kind of girl. There are three options for the cleanses, but they’re pretty similar in general.
Hunger: I found the pre and post parts of the cleanse the most difficult in terms of hunger. The juice days were relatively easy.
Energy: I had lots of it!
The side effects: I didn’t have any at all. Two of my participating friends got canker sores/ cold sores in their mouths. They emailed BP Cleanse to find out if they had any recommendations for how to manage their mouth sores and BP responded promptly. It is fairly common for latent bacteria or viruses to emerge while cleansing. It is part of the bodies way of expunging these things from your system.
The experience: I thought it was a great experience for me. Glad I did it. My friends felt the same.
What I discovered about myself: I eat too much cheese and I do far too much random, unhealthy snacking.
Would I recommend it?
It depends what you’re looking for. I wanted a cleanse… a re-set. I felt that a structured program like this would work better for me than simply eating clean on my own. I’d definitely do it again- maybe try another cleanse like one of these: Life Juice or the Cooler Cleanse.
