Last month I was feeling a bit sluggish and was motivated to do a three day juice cleanse. I've done juice cleanses before, and the first few times I borrowed my mom's juicer to actually make the juice myself. What a pain that was. And let's just say most of my concoctions tasted less than fabulous. It's such a treat to be able to get a juice cleanse from the pros, like Can Can, who made the yummy juices I drank for my latest cleanse! (Fun fact: I saw on Instagram that one of my favorite bloggers, Sydne Style, was also doing the exact same 3-day Can Can cleanse down in LA while I was doing mine.) If you're thinking about doing a three day juice cleanse, here's the scoop on how mine went:
Day 1: The first day was definitely the most difficult for me. I drank my juices/teas in the morning, and by lunch time I was pretty darn hungry. The celery and sage soup was delicious (I would totally eat that for a regular meal) and was really satiating. By late afternoon, I had a pretty bad headache and was exhausted. I took a nap around 5pm (which is really unusual for me) and woke up drooling all over the couch pillow (Not sure why I feel like that's a necessary component of the story to share with you, but there it is). I drank the rest of my juices and went to bed around 11pm that night.
Day 2: I felt fantastic on Day 2! My headache had gone away and I had great energy. I didn't feel hungry or deprived, but just enjoyed my juices, teas, and soup. I got some work done, did some errands around town, and just felt generally productive and awesome!
Day 3: Day 3 was an easy day as well, since I knew I was in the home stretch. I was feeling great and had lost four pounds (mostly water weight I'm sure), and as Can Can says, was feeling lighter and brighter! I savored my favorite (and last) juice of the cleanse that night—the almond milk! It reminded me of a healthy horchata and was so delicious.

I really enjoyed my 3 day juice cleanse with Can Can and would absolutely recommend them if you're looking to do a cleanse! The juices were tasty, their customer service was lovely, and they even sent me motivational tweets every day of the cleanse. How cute is that??
