(another) Raw Generation review

OMG I finally completed. Another. Six. Day. Juice cleanse. I’ve reviewed raw generation before, but this one was a little different. I did the 3-day Happily Ever After Bridal Juice Cleanse followed by the 3-day Skinny Cleanse. Hey, they had some mad sales going on. A girl can’t resist.

Now mother, calm down. I’m not engaged. I just wanted to have radiant glowing pre-bride skin, and I sure got it! All of the juices were delicious, and by day two I was rid of my post-holiday bloat. I miraculously cut out coffee AND booze, and slept like a baby. It also comes with a great cooler to haul them around, recipes, and grocery checklist.

They arrive frozen, in a giant well-insulated box…

So make room in your fridge…

Get out of my face coconut milk ice cream, because this is all I’ll be drinking for the next few days:

no. 1: carrot, apple, beet, ginger. This one will wake you up in the morning and give you a boost of energy, just like the bottle says. Also called “Cecelia”.

no. 2: orange, grapefruit, bell pepper. It smells very much like pepper, but surprisingly doesn’t taste very much like pepper. Very citrus-y, very good, and will keep you stable until “lunch”.

no. 3: apple, lemon, spinach, kale, collards. Prrrrobably the only person on the planet that thinks this tastes like bananas. I love bananas. It works. But seriously, it’s good and filling and nutritious and probably the best one for you out of this bunch. Also known as “Jessica”.

no. 4: cashews, dates, vanilla, cinnamon. I hope you have a sweet tooth, because no. 4 will most definitely satisfy it. VERY sweet, VERY cinnamon-y, VERY filling. It came just in time to distract me from my ritualistic afternoon coffee break. WHEW.

no. 5: fresh squeezed orange. Just what it says. Love me some vitamin C.

no. 6: pineapple, cucumber, aloe vera. Soothing, calming, and for some reason my dog went crazy for the smell of it. Like really crazy. Pretty sure he wanted to get in the bottle. This one is also called “Elizabeth”.

I recommend the Bridal Juice Cleanse if this is your first time, want to gently detox, and simply feel great. If you’re aiming for a more significant weight-loss, go for something greener.

Which brings us to the second half of my 6-day cleanse, the SKINNY cleanse.

I did this one before and really liked it. You can find my previous review HERE. I like to drink these juices in order as pictured above, it just works for me. They don’t specify an order but suggest alternating green with fruit.

My post, ‘juice cleanse 101. YOU CAN DO THIS‘, has some helpful tips, suggestions, and lessons learned for a successful cleanse, should you be interested in doing one yourself!

Good luck and DRINK VERY COLD.
