Verde Juice Fast

What’s this juice fast thing all about anyway?

Juice fasting is a way of giving your digestive system a break, and can act as a reset button for your body. Processed foods and stress can take a toll on the body. A properly done juice fast can improve digestion, boost your immune system and increase energy. Typically juice fasts are done for either 1, 3, or 5 days, depending what you are trying to achieve.

When it comes to nutrition, there is no magic pill. Day-to-day eating habits such as eating whole foods (choosing organic whenever possible), raw vegetables, nuts & seeds, healthy fats, proteins and fibre, are essential for maintaining overall health and well-being.

We believe that juicing shouldn’t be a replacement for eating whole foods, but as a healthy addition to a well-balanced diet. Cold-pressed juice can help to keep you feeling balanced and energized, without the crash often associated with the late day coffee or high carbohydrate based snack.

Can I drink anything else while doing a juice fast?

When on a juice fast, it is important to stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water in-between each juice. Avoid drinking alcohol, coffee, and any other stimulants. The purpose of the juice fast is to give our system a break.

What if I get hungry?

If you feel hungry during your juice fast, there is nothing wrong with eating something. We recommend something simple like a plant based soup, green smoothie or raw fruit & vegetables, just keep it simple.

How should I prepare for the juice fast?

Leading up to and out of a fast, it is recommended to reduce your consumption of processed foods, refined flour, sugar, alcohol, caffeine, dairy, and meat out of your diet for at least the first few days, ideally 7-10 days pre and post fast. Prioritizing vegetables, fruits, legumes, whole grains, and nuts. We ask that you place your order at the beginning of the leading up phase, approximately one week pre-fast.
