Fruveju Juice 1 Day Cleanse


The Fruveju Explore Cleanse
available online

I love leading a heathy, active lifestyle and am always on the look out for the next superfood to try or the newest fitness crave to incorporate into my gym sessions. So when Fruveju approached me about trying one of their juice cleanse programmes I was keen to give it a go and opted for the 1 day cleanse programme which was delivered promptly to my place of work the following day (complete with snazzy cooler bag to keep the juices fresh).

Fruveju offer three cleansing programmes, 1, 3 or 5 day, each coming with six juices per day to enjoy at set times from 8am to 7pm. Each juice is 500ml and numbered in the order that Fruveju recommend you ingest them to optimise the absorption and digestion of nutrients. They say that you shouldn't feel the need to eat during the cleanse but are welcome to drink as much water and herbal tea along the day to accompany your programme. Fruveju juices flood the body and cells with vitamins and minerals that gently cleanse and heal the body without the harsh detox symptoms associated with other cleanses, pills or powders on the market. All the juices are delivered to you in their rawest state - unprocessed, organic and pressed fresh every day. I undertook the Explore cleanse last week which consisted of six juices throughout the day and is designed as a great yet gentle introduction to those who want to give juice cleansing ago and maybe kick start a healthier regime. All the juices were pleasant enough to drink with some being slightly tastier than others! The fruity ones were my favourite, the pure green ones were bearable but the lemon and cayenne pepper is one more for an acquired taste!

During the cleanse I didn't feel particularly hungry or suffer from any side effects apart from feeling slightly less energised than normal. I did feel extremely virtuous and thought it was a good way to start the week after an indulgent weekend. I think the idea of doing a 1 day cleanse is great as it resets any bad eating habits, kick starts a healthier outlook and eliminates those naughty cravings but after then I believe a healthy lifestyle and a sensible eating plan including fresh juices or smoothies is the best way forward. I would definitely recommend trying Fruveju if you are new to juicing and fancy giving the programme a go but it is quite an expensive investment so if it is your thing then you may be best to invest in your own juicer and get juicing at home! Rob and I tend to do this every weekend and love discovering new recipes and ingredients - our current favourite is apple, carrot and ginger. :)

What are your thoughts of juice cleansing? Would you give this programme a go?

Love the look of this, a one day cleanse sounds like a good idea as I'm never sure I could last three days and still have the energy to get through work.

I love the look and sound of a Juice Cleanse and I'd love to give it a go! This one looked great, until I saw the price - Oh my gosh, £70 for one day of juice, am I reading that correctly or am I missing something? :/

The price is astonishing and quite off putting. I like the idea of it but I don't like the look of some of the flavours.

Lissy Morse said...

Good lord, surely that price tag is way too unaccessable? I agree something like this is a good idea, but there must be lower price alternatives

I would love to try one of these juice detoxes at some point but find them to be so expensive! I enjoy making my own smoothies by looking up recipes online and make either fruit smoothies in the morning to kick start my day or make green smoothies to stay healthy and prevent snacking on crisps and chocolates during the day :)

Ilona said...

I'd be interested, but not for £70 or more. It's insane!

babyteeth said...

I really want to try one of these types of detoxes but I feel like one day wouldn't do a lot, and there is no way I'd ever be able to afford anything more haha! Glad you enjoyed it though, the jices look yummy.

I'd love to go on a juice cleanse but I find that they can be very pricey! It would be the perfect way to cleanse and become on the path to healthiness though!

I love reading about your cleanse adventure as I just tried a one day cleanser from Project Juice last week. It was pretty similar to this one although there was no watermelon in my juices (uh YUM!). My lemon/cayenne juice was actually a lot like a delicious spicy lemonade and the nut milk at the end of the day was probably one of the tastiest things I've ever had!

I've always wanted to try a Juice Cleanse, I think it would be a great way to kick start a diet and healthy eating plan.


Belle Blue said...

I would love to try this but it is a little pricey, I think a juicer may be a slighlty better alternative for now!
Great post though,
