Today I feel light, fresh, and just full of life. GoGusto was here. Say what?
Go Gusto is Luxembourg’s first cold-pressed juice company. They produce and deliver delicious organic/local cold pressed juices by the bottle or by the pack, also offering detox plans!
As I have been feeling out of balance lately (blame those evil but tasty chips sitting in the cupboard, among other things..
oh and a gargantuesque berlin foodie trip), I decided to give it a try. 1 day? 3 days? 5 days? That wasn’t too difficult to choose as I must admit I am a complete failure when it comes to cleansing. The first and last time I did it was during a halloween holiday, on a raw food basis. Worst timing ever. Word of advice for future cleansers: please, be realistic with yourselves and do not choose to cleanse on a holiday (aka days where you don’t have anything else to do but think of eating).
However, cleansing can be an amazing thing your the body. It can help you detox and reboot your whole system, shed all the bad stuff out (yes) and feel like you’re reborn. It is recommended to do a cleanse every so often, to unclutter your body from the toxins it has accumulated. Done on a regular basis, cleansing your body can be a lifesaver, because toxins = illness. Apparently even just 1 single day of cleansing may be effective towards this. Hell yes! Bring it on.
So I ordered the 1-day detox box from Go Gusto.
I received it a few days later at my doorstep by it’s lovely owner, Vesela Savova, a really interesting being, a real health geekie who has studied nutrition and has loads of knowledge to share (we hope we get her on the blog soon :))
I received 6 500ml bottles of juices, smoothies and an almond milk + leaflets for usage directions and advice for the cleanse.
Yup, number 1 is off the photo and into my belly 🙂
The next day, I started my morning with a cup of hot water and lemon, as directed.
Then followed the goodies:
1)Green Essentials Smoothie: Spinach, Romaine Lettuce, Banana, Apple, Lemon
2)Pure Red Juice: Beetroot, Apple, Celery
3)Cool Breeze Juice: Cucumber, Pineapple, Mint
4)Allure Juice: Carrot, Apple, Ginger
5)Green Garden Juice: Kale, Apple, Romaine Lettuce, Cucumber, Lemon
6)Vanilla Dream Milk: Almonds, Vanilla, Cinnamon, Honey, Spring Water
I must say, I’m impressed. This was all very tasty, fresh, and despite being primarily for detoxing, I really felt another great benefit in my day from ingesting only liquid beverages: no cooking sessions, no eating breaks means so much free time! As you can drink these on the go and it feels less as it’s interrupting your activity, you can have them during a day where you want to get really productive, as this is real fuel and it will allow you to focus fully on your work and not have “it’s time to eat” thoughts crossing in! Of course this is not something to do on a daily basis and not my philosophy concerning meal times (they are precious after all) But man did I get so many things done. Wow.
This 1-day detox is something I’d definitely recommend for anyone willing to reboot their system in an easy way! Despite being a detox, it really feels like a treat.
