PHD Cleanse

phd-cleanse

Indulgent is a word I have used far too often lately when describing meals out and social appointments alike. So last week I chose to practice the virtues of another word… repentance.

My repentance came in the form of PHD Cleanse.

Kiwi owned and operated, Pure Health Delivered (PHD) Cleanse is a juicing company that specialize in raw cold-press juice cleanses delivered to your door. They offer a range of cleanse options from 3-day basic cleanses to advanced 5 day ones. Not wanting to be over ambitious I decided to try their 3-day basic cleanse.

The first challenge was finding 3 days where I could abstain from eating – its just plain awkward attending a lunch meeting and not ordering food. With my Tuesday – Thursday locked in I had the juices promptly delivered in one hit the night before… 9 x green juices, 3 x yellow juices, 3 x lemonade juices and 3 x cashew juices.

The Cleanse:
Day one was a breeze up until 6pm when I turned into a hungry werewolf, fortunately I had a Cashew Dream drink on hand that quickly satisfied my hunger – infact, I couldn’t even drink the whole bottle it was so filling.
Day two I woke up hungry and had a Pure Green juice which tied me over. I was feeling tired and slightly irritable come mid-afternoon but was otherwise fine. Also loving the Zesty Lemonade juice as a spicy ‘pick me up’.
Day three I started asking myself why I was doing the cleanse but muddled through and reminded myself it was the last day. By the evening I was feeling full of energy and planning my Breakfast the next morning!
Post cleanse I noticed my eyes were whiter and brighter, my energy levels were great and I’d lost that bloated feeling. Would definitely do the cleanse again.

The Juices:
Pure Green: Cucumber, celery, kale, parsley, lemon, apple, lettuce and spinach
Alkalizing, blood purifying and aids in detoxification process. Delicious apple taste.
Zesty Lemonade: Lemon, cayenne, agave, water
Refreshing spicy ‘pick me up’. Alkalizing.
Yellow Hit: Pineapple, Apple, Mint
The natural sugar content gives your body instant energy.
Cashew Dream: Cashew nuts, Vanilla, Agave nectar, Cinnamon, water
Tastes way too good to be part of a cleanse. Delicious and nutty dessert drink. To make your own smoothie try mixing half a bottle of Cashew Dream with ice in a blender.

For those of you in Australia I also recommend Lucky You juice cleanses.

About the author
New Zealand based Nature Bee was born in 1997 when Jeff and Ben Cook joined forces. The father / son team discovered a special process developed by Canterbury University, still considered to be ground breaking today, that unlocks the nutrients of bee pollen, making it far more digestible than normal bee pollen. This proprietary process was later to be named the ‘potentiation process' and is continually used only by Nature Bee on their New Zealand bee pollen. Nature Bee is now available in almost every country in the world.

    Hi, you make the 3-day cleanse sound wonderful!
    Is there a company in North America that sells these juices?

      I’m not sure sorry, you could try juicing yourself if there are no companies offering ready made cleanses.
