Sippin’ on Tea & Juice…Day 3!

Lauryn Evarts, fitness blogger, health blogger, and diet blogger talks skinny tips and tricks for weight loss.

Annnnnddd it’s finally day three.

Cha-ching!!

I’m feeling light, awake, & alert. Out of all the days, three is the best because of the accomplished feeling. I like setting my mind to something, staying disciplined, & following through with what the hell I said I was going to do.

Total win.

It’s also kinda nice that I finished moving into my place on day three. I’m definitely feeling less stressed now that the move is over…however, the unpacking & furnishing I have ahead of me is insane.

Oh, & P.S. don’t get mad if this turns into a home decor blog.

Kidding.

Sort of.

Lately all I’ve been doing is immersing myself in home decor. I’m on a freaking rampage. So look out! New hobby alert!

Ok, ok, here’s a recap of day three:

+ By far the easiest day of the cleanse.

+ I have a pregnancy glow, but I’m not pregnant. Rad, huh?

+ I’ve lost five pounds- some is water weight.

+ My energy level is cray, cray. If I felt like this daily I wouldn’t need my AM cup of coffee.

+ Mixed veggies & berries are for din din.

+ I’m scared to eat normal food tomorrow because I feel so good…but I’ll be trying to practice these post cleanse tips.

+ Overall goal: to attain these results.

Anyone else participate in the cleanse? If so, share your experience below!

Happy Wednesday, lovas.

Zinnngg! Day Two Juice Cleanse Update

Lauryn Evarts, fitness blogger, health blogger, and diet blogger talks skinny tips and weight loss tricks.

Heyyyyyy. I’m buzzing with energy.

Still feeling fantastic..despite having to deal with moving.

Honestly? I’m probably the worst packer on the planet. I’m the kind that throws everything in a cardboard box & stuffs it full causing the box to open from the bottom, breaking everything.

Ya. I’m that annoying person.

Anyway, here’s today’s update on the Suja cleanse:

+ I added ‘Lemon Love’ to the mix today- it’s a lemon, water, & cayenne based drink with no sugar. Stevia is used instead of artificial sweetener.

+ I ate some cherries, avocado slices, & plan on have some mixed veggies tonight.

+ Around 3 PM I became hungry. After drinking my fourth juice of the day & snacking on some avo slices, I felt fine.

+ It’s been the easiest time I’ve ever had cleansing.

When you know when to expect on a cleanse, it becomes easier & easier.

Times have really changed: my first cleanse three years ago was a horrendous, awful experience. Now I love detoxing- it’s part of my life. Just like anything: when you know what to expect you can prepare yourself- mentally & physically.

Ok. I have to go move some more boxes- wish me luck!

A Little Day One Detox Recap

Lauryn Evarts does the three day Suja juice cleanse.

You know what’s seriously the best day ever? Moving, cleansing, & being on your period.

I know, right?! OMG- so fun.

MOVING.CLEANSING.PERIOD.

I guess it’s better to get all that shitty shit over at once, then have it all happen over time? I D K. At that’s what I’m telling myself.

Anyway pretty much I’m moving into a new place, chugging Suja while holding a box of tampons.

FML.

So instead of Monday’s Mini DeLites this week, I’m talking juice cleansin’. Here’s a day one recap, ladies:

+ I wasn’t hungry. At all. Maybe that’s because I was carrying boxes all day & didn’t have time to be hungry.

+ For a snack I had an avocado sliced in half with Meyer lemon, mixed lettuce with beets & carrots, & a half of a sweet potato.

+ I drank tons of iced green tea ( w/ no sweetener & a splash of passion fruit tea). Also, water was my bestie all day long.

+ Instead of drinking the last juice, I ate it. I mixed the almond/cinnamon juice + chia seeds + whole flaxseeds & whipped up this three ingredient pudding.

+ Tomorrow I want to drink even more water.

So overall day one was a real breeze.

I mean, besides Auntie Flow being town & moving everything I own in the blazing sun.

Mmmkay.

Goodnight! xx.L

If Annie Lawless’ food diary doesn’t inspire every person on the planet to eat healthy, then I don’t know what will.

She fuels her bod with all the right food & doesn’t give a shit what anyone else thinks ( << smart girl! ).

She a total juice master; her & her partner, Eric, started Suja Juice out of their houses a few years ago & it’s BLOWN up. Lately US Weekly, Vogue, & InStyle have been dying over Suja.

I mean, clearly. Even Victoria’s Secret models love the juice ( see Annie with their models above & below ).

If you want a little more background on this bombshell, click here.

Ok, have fun stalking her food journal…because I certainly did!

Lauryn Evarts talks with Suja co-founder, Annie Lawless about diet tips and tricks for weight loss.

Hi!

I’m Annie and I’m a major food snob. And no, I’m not sorry about that. I take what I put in my body pretty seriously because I know how much better I look and feel when I’m eating whole, organic, high quality foods.

I also have a lot of food allergies & it’s hard to know what goes into your food unless if you make it yourself. Plus, I LOVE to cook! I grocery shop twice per week ( Sundays & Wednesdays ) & grab things that I know I can use for a few different purposes and meals. For example, some of my staples are: salmon, avocados, kale, any & all of veggies, lentils, nuts, & seeds. I can build a lot of different meals around those items!

I also spend an hour or two on Sunday prepping ingredients so I can easily assemble something delicious quickly during the week when I may not have as much time & motivation. I also don’t snack much because my body responds better to three large meals. To give you an idea of what I eat, here’s what my week looked like:

{ Monday }

5:20 am ( pre-workout )– ½ bottle Suja Fuel

7:00 am ( post-workout )– ½ bottle Suja Fuel, two scrambled eggs with tomato & spinach sautéed in a little Ghee butter, garlic, & sea salt.

11:45 am– Avocado/kale salad ( finely chopped head of kale massaged in one whole avocado, miso, dijon mustard, garlic, maldon salt, lemon, apple cider vinegar, tahini, & flax oil with cherry tomatoes, carrot, red onion, & pumpkin seeds). **I make this at least three times per week & change up the ingredients depending on what I have.

2:15 pm– Suja Glow

5:20 pm- Twelve Essentials

7:30 pm– I made zucchini pasta from two zucchinis & dressed with white truffle oil, garlic, black lava salt, & pepper. I had two pieces of 88% dark chocolate with raw almond butter for dessert.

{ Tuesday }

7:30 am– Suja Vanilla Cloud poured over homemade raw granola ( about ½ cup ).

11:00 am– Suja Twelve Essentials

1:00 pm– Raw sunflower seed pate ( sunflower seeds, garlic, carrot, celery, lemon, parsley, & sea salt ) wrapped in butter lettuce leaves. I used coconut aminos as a dipping sauce.

7:10 pm– Avocado/kale salad

{ Wednesday }

6:00 am ( pre-workout )– Suja Green Supreme

9:00 am– I had a super busy morning and left the house early, so I drank another Green Supreme juice and had some raw almonds I sprouted over the weekend.

12:45 pm– Whole Foods salad bar! This had baby greens, carrot, tomato, onion, chickpeas, beet, purple cabbage, quinoa, & cherry tomatoes. I used olive oil & vinegar for the dressing & added an avocado from the produce section. I also had some flax crackers I bought there.

8:00 pm– Salmon I marinated in miso/tamari/ginger & a little maple syrup. I pan seared it a little coconut oil & Ghee butter with sautéed asparagus & baby bok choy. This meal was delicious.

9:00 pm– Raw coconut almond macaroons I made over the weekend.

{ Thursday }

8:00 am– Chia pudding I prepared the night before ( I mixed Chia seeds, Suja Vanilla Cloud, ground flax in a bowl ). I put this in the fridge & let it thicken overnight, then added raspberries in the morning.

10:00 am– Suja Fiji

11:30 am– Suja Lemon Love

1:15 pm– Albacore Nicoise salad from Herringbone in La Jolla. I had a lunch meeting so I got this salad with seared albacore, dark leafy greens, olive oil, vinegar dressing, & olives.

3:40 pm– Suja Twelve Essentials

7:30 pm– Veggie soup with kale, carrot, celery, tomato, lentils, garlic, onion, Maitake, oyster, & Shitake mushrooms. I made this in less than twenty minutes because I had prepared lentils over the weekend.

{ Friday }

5:20 am ( pre-workout ) – Suja Fuel

8:00 am- Suja Vanilla Cloud poured over homemade raw granola ( 3/4 cup ).

11:50 am– Leftover veggie soup + one whole avocado with Maldon salt.

2:50 pm– Suja Purify

5:00 pm– Suja Lemon Love

9:15 pm– I ordered a big salad with added avocado, Tamari, & olive oil on the side for dressing. I also got four pieces of salmon sashimi & two pieces of sea bass sashimi which I put on the salad. I also had a glass of wine.

As you can see, every day is a little different and I don’t really have set meal times. I also drink A LOT of juice! This helps me stay hydrated and energized & I prefer it over snacks during the day. Hope you enjoyed that snapshot of my meals!

xo,

Annie

Day 2!!!

Annnnddddd baaaa! I’m buzzed off Suja.

This is the easiest detox ever. I had one measly hunger pain so I ate an avocado with cayenne powder ( thx for tip, Weslie ) & a bunch of lemon. Now? I feel like a million bucks x 10.

Let’s talk exercising on a juice cleanse:

Annie ( << the cleansing guru ) said light exercise is fine. She’s done yoga for the past two days + some light walking- & it’s working really well for her.

Weslie & Sam have ran + weight lifting.

Casey has been playing soccer & that’s working for her schedule/her body.

Cody has done a little skateboarding + some ab work.

Do what floats your boat. Obviously, you know your sexy bod better than anyone.

In my opinion? Hot yoga ( while detoxing ) doesn’t work for me. I faint ( literally, faint ) at the sight of a needle. Also hot temps get me. Hot temperatures + a juice cleanse = me fainting. So far, I’ve done some traditional Pilates & strengthen training on the detox…I’m feeling fantastic.

Again: do what works for YOU. Not your dad, not your boyfriend, not me, not your dog, not your creepy, weird neighbor…you.

So on that note, I’ll leave ya all with a lil tippy-a-de-tip: have a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar each morning while you’re cleansing. Why? Because it stimulates the GI tract + it’s alkalizing after a night of sleep.

The giveaway winner, Kimberly is loving the cleanse too- check out her Suja experience here.

I la, la, love hearing about your cleanse experience; feel free to share below. MWAH!

Love.L
