Today we have a three day cleans review of Jus By Julie. Sheila Thomas of Living Smart Girl takes a crack at reviewing this juice pack. She has a good perspective on it because she has taken this cleanse before, although with a few substitutions. Therefore, she can give you some comparisons. Warning, she is not a fan of the green juices! Bonus: meet her little dog Abby.
As usual, check below the video for a transcript. And if you’d like to go direct to Jus By Julie’s website, you can do so at this link. And to see what Juice By Julie has for sale on Amazon, you know what to do.
Good morning. This is Sheila from Living Smart Girl. It’s early. Well, not all that early. 9 o’clock. I slept in this moring. Today I am starting my second three day cleans with the products by Jus By Julie. These are pre-made juices that the company makes and then ships out to you overnight. They come all bottled up. You get six juices for three days. So six juices per day for three days. When you get them you’re supposed to put the third day in the freezer and then you take the third day out the night of the second, leave them on the counter so they can thaw out so they’re ready to go on the third day. The first time I did this I lost 7 pounds. I felt great. I had a ton of energy.
The first day was a little iffy, I was a little sluggish. But last time I ended up with a juice called Morning Glory – this one isn’t Morning Glory. Morning Glory had celery and kale in it and I can’t stand the taste of celery, so it really was hard to choke down. So I ended up having to eat a few of the things on the menu that they said you can eat. Which I’d rather not eat actually eat anything through the cleanse, I’d rather just do the cleanse.
So anyways, in the six juices that you get, you get a variety but there are a few staples. You do get a green one. This one here is Extreme Greens. It has kale, spinach, lime, pineapple, orange, hemp seeds and water. You’re supposed to drink a lot of water while you’re juicing. This one looks really nasty. You’ll get to see what I think of it in a few seconds. Juice number two is kind of midway between breakfast and lunch. And this one is a spicy pomade. This one I remember from last time, it’s really good.
Hear those footsteps? That’s Abby. Want to say hi, Abby? C’mere Abby! Say hi! There she is.
Ok, so anyways. The second one for the day is pomegranate, lemon, maple syrup and cayenne pepper. And this one does have a kick. You can’t really see the pepper in it, but when you’re drinking it – whoo! Talk about take your breath away. You don’t want to be laughing or something and start choking on this because you’ll be coughing for hours. The third one for the day is which would be considered your lunch would be another green one. Ew. I hate green. I mean, I like green, just not this green. This one has spinach, kale, pineapple, banana, and mango, and water. This one’s not as bad as the breakfast one I had last time so we’ll see how the breakfast one is this time. This one I can easily drink down and I’m not gagging. It’s just a thing with lots of green vegetables, I just can’t handle that. I love green vegetables, but in a juice, the flavors just kid of gag me.
Anyways, the fourth one would be between your lunch and your dinner. So, your afternoon snack. And they sent me Dayglow, which I have not tried yet. This is carrotm pineapple and water. It looks interesting, I’ve never drank carrot juice before, so we’ll give it a whirl. Then for dinner, they send you something that’s maybe more of your yummy juice for the day. This one is not so chunky. It’s peanut butter and banana. I do remember this one from last time. This one was really good. And I think I even drank like half of it and saved a little more of it for right before bed. So this one here is really good.
And then, of course, right before bed they recommend you chug down this bottle. Again it’s a sweet spin just like you had for lunch but they have this one for the last juice of the day. Again it’s spinach, kale, pineapple, banana and mango. So I guess it kind of helps your body heal over night.
There’s my juices for the day. When you order from them you get some literature sent to you on juicing and some information. It’s really interesting. So, I’m going to open this one up because Abby needs to go outside. I’m going to open this one up, give it a little drink. You can see my reaction. This is the Extreme Green. Oh, it smells horrible. Smells like spinach and kale. Bottoms up! Oh, I can still taste the kale but not as bad as the Morning Glory one from last time. So I’m going to finish my juice, let my dog outside, and I’ll be back later.
There ya go! Check back for more reviews and an overview of the company. Here’s to your health!
