Organic Avenue Love Deep Cleanse: Day 27

Organic Avenue Love Deep Cleanse: Day 27

I’m back to making my own juices now that my week of Organic Avenue deliveries has come to an end. Just a few more days to complete my 30 day goal! I had such a wonderful experience with Organic Avenue that I wanted to tell you all about it.

Organic Avenue has three different levels of cleanses:

  • LOVE Easy – a beginners cleanse that combines a booster shot, juices, and raw meals.
  • LOVE Fast – an intermediate cleanse consisting of a booster, juices, mylk, raw soup, and a raw meal.
  • LOVE Deep – an “expert” cleanse consisting of a booster, juices, and a mylk.

The LOVE Deep Cleanse comes as a 3-day, 5-day, and 7-day program.  Since Organic Avenue was having a 30% of sale, I decided to go for the 7-day to give myself a week break from juicing in my baby NYC kitchen. This is what I received on the first day.

My juice for the day was delivered to my home, free of charge, between 6:00 and 8:00am. I immediately opened the box and labeled each bottle with the time they recommended consuming it. This made it easy for me to toss the bottles I needed throughout the day into my lunch bag and save the rest in the refrigerator for later.

8:00 – 9:00 am The Booster Shot

Each day began with a booster shot.

Boosters_Gluten-Free_Cat

  • E3 Live Shot – It doesn’t taste great, but when you know that you’re getting 64 vitamins, minerals, and enzymes from blue algae, it’s much easier to get down.
  • Aloe – This tastes sour, which surprised me as I’ve taken aloe in the past and it didn’t have a taste at all. Aloe is great for detoxification and decreases inflammation in the digestive tract.
  • Wheatgrass – LOVE, love, love! By far the most deliciously sweet shot. The benefits of wheatgrass seem to be endless, but it’s well known for it’s detoxifying properties as well as its ability to increase red blood-cell count.
  • Chlorophyll – Brush your teeth and tongue afterwards if you don’t want to leave the house looking like you just ate a green lollipop. It regenerates and cleanses the body on a cellular level, so it’s worth looking a little like a toddler.

9:00-10:00 am Fruit Juice

Now we’re hungry and we’re ready for our first juice of the day. One of the following fruit juices came each day.

Fruit_Gluten-Free_Cat

Orange Juice – 100% pure orange juice. I added vanilla protein powder to this on the days that started with a workout which made it taste like an orange julius.

Grapefruit Juice – 100% pure grapefruit juice! Delicious, but I missed the ginger that I put in my Morning Zinger.

Royal Red – Packed with antioxidants and powerfully delicious with carrot, beet, orange, pear, pineapple, ginger, and lemon. I love this juice.

11:00 am -12:00 pm Green Juice

Next was one of the following green juices:

Greens_Gluten-Free_Cat

Sweet Greens – Sweet pear, orange, and hydrating cucumber balance the intensity of Swiss chard, kale, and collard greens. A touch of lemon and mint finishes it off.

Mellow Love -  A smooth combination of romaine, celery, cucumber, spinach, and parsley.

Green Coco – Wonderfully hydrating with organic young Thai coconut water, green chard, romaine, spinach, kale, and celery.

Green Love - Pear and lemon sweeten up a concentrated combination of dark leafy greens including kale, Swiss chard, spinach, parsley, collard greens, and romaine.

Medicinal Green – This one had to grow on me. I finally came to appreciate the kick from the garlic, turmeric, cayenne pepper mixed with cucumber, Swiss chard, spinach, collard greens, kale, lemon, and Himalayan salt.

1:00 – 2:00 pm Tonic

The early afternoon tonics gave a little boost during a busy time of day.

Tonic_Gluten-Free_Cat

Master Tonic – Flashback! Have you ever done the Master Cleanse? One sip and you’ll be flashing back. Maple syrup, lemon, and cayenne pepper is the original Master drink, but Organic Avenue uses coconut sugar instead of maple syrup. Very tasty.

Ginger Lemonade – Sweet and tangy with a kick of ginger, this was by far my favorite tonic. Purified alkaline water, lemon, lime, ginger, and coconut sugar provided a great boost.

Turmeric Tonic – This was my least favorite. In fact, I didn’t like it at all. It may be that the spices are gritty and collect at the bottom of the bottle. Ingredients: purified alkaline water, ginger, coconut sugar, lemon juice, turmeric, cardamom, black pepper, cayenne pepper, Himalayan salt

3:00 – 4:00 pm Vegetable Juice

My favorite time of day! I’d come home from work and sit down to a tall glass of…

Carrot_Gluten-Free_Cat

Carrot Juice – Yes, pure organic carrot juice. It tastes like candy. Have you ever tried 100% carrot juice? It’s out of this world. I didn’t even miss the fact that none of my boxes included the alternate veggie juice called Veggie Vibe.

5:00 – 6:00 pm Green Juice

Early evening brought another one of the 5 green juices.

7:00 – 8:00 pm Mylk

And the best part of the day was ending it with one of these.

Mylks_Gluten-Free_Cat

Cashew Hemp Mylk – I love love LOVE this milk. It was such a treat right before bed. More decadent than my version of Cashew Hemp Milk, this one has organic coconut sugar.

Coconut Mylk – Thick and dreamy, this creamy delight is made from 100% Organic Coconut Meat and 100% Organic Thai Coconut Water. That means it’s 200% delicious if I’m doing my math correctly. Seriously, it’s so thick that it pours out of the bottle like a pudding. What a great way to end the day.

Having Organic Avenue cater to me during the third week of my cleanse was the refreshing break that I needed. Now just a few more days of juicing on my own to meet my goal. I would highly recommend Organic Avenue’s LOVE Deep Cleanse. The juices are top quality, the variety keeps you interested and properly fueled, and customer service can not be beat.

Readers, dish!

  1. Replicate Sweet Greens, please! I’m juicing on weekend mornings thanks to Kris Carr’s Adventure Cleanse, and need to expand my repertoire. :-)

    Side note: Do you feel like a million bucks yet? And are you excited to almost be back to solid food?

  2. Christine says:

    Are they raw products?

    Sorry I didn’t read the whole post, just wanted to know if they were raw first.

    Thanks!

  3. Very interesting post, thanks! I am curious about juice cleansing, but have not tried it yet. One of my goals it to juice more this year starting with a challenge next month.

  4. You are an inspiration for doing a whole month of juice! I honestly don’t think I could do it… you make it sound so easy and even fun.
    I suppose if I had a place like Organic Avenue near me, I could do it ;p

  5. Ttrockwood says:

    I think i would be pissed if i paid so much and they sent an orange juice and a bottle of master cleanse!! Neither of those cost much at all to make yourself- some of the others i get it, and their nut milks are amazing…. Love their cold brewed lattes too.

    • Heather says:

      Trockwood, that made me laugh! At the time I was just so glad that someone else was juicing for me that I didn’t mind! And I agree. Their nut milks are insane. I must try the lattes. Thanks for the tip!

A Curious Girl in the Gluten-Free World

I'm a curious girl, wife, teacher, friend, fitness fanatic, foodie, high raw vegan, child of the King, and Mama Cat. I've made the transition from baking and cooking gluten-free to creating raw vegan recipes that are naturally gluten free. My gluten intolerance opened up my diet to a whole new world of nutritious plant-based foods. And now I have another challenge ahead...I'm moving to New York City! I look forward to Living Raw Vegan in the City and sharing my experience with you.
