OK, for all of you who plan to start out the new year and the new you with a bodily cleanse, I’ve got just the thing for you. And it doesn’t involve anything weird, or hard to obtain, like the sap extracted from a rare tree found only in BoraBora. In fact, it’s already made for you, and easy to obtain from a local business. And, what’s more, it tastes GOOD!
A cleanse can actually be a great way to jump start a diet or new eating plan. It gives our digestive system a chance to clean out and prepare for the RIGHT foods, after we’ve abused it with all of the wrong things, especially over the holidays. So the new year is a great time to set forth on your resolution to healthier eating.
Lauren and Deven, owners and proprietors of The Fresh Press Juice Company at 105 South Avenue East in Cranford, are no strangers to the clean eating lifestyle. Both grew up in the farmlands of NJ, and were raised on a healthy diet of fruits and vegetables. Since opening the business together last year, they hope to introduce this healthy lifestyle to their customers.
They suggest preparing for the cleanse by eliminating all processed foods from your diet. ( A good practice, anyway.) They also point out that you should actually refrain from exercise while doing a cleanse, because it can be tiring to the body. It is also helpful to embark upon the cleanse with a friend or loved one, to offer each other motivation and support.
There are a few different cleanse options available at Fresh Press. The “Fresh Start” cleanse is perfect for the beginner who is new to cleansing, and it is accompanied by meals of fresh vegetables and fruits. If you’re more of a cleanse expert, and are looking for a deeper cleanse, then the “Full Press” option may be more your style. Whichever you choose, a 72 hour advance notice is required for your cleanse juice to be ready, since everything is made fresh an ready to order.
If you’re not sure which option is best for you, or if you have questions, or if you want to taste test some juices, simply visit the store, and they will be more than happy to help you out.
