Late yesterday afternoon the courier arrived with a neatly packaged box from Soutmatefood.
Inside the insulated box are my juices for the next three days. There was a icepack in teh centre of the juices however this had already melted. The inside of the box wasn’t particularly cool – perhaps worthwhile getting the delivery in the morning, if possible – hopefully the juices will remain fresh for the 3-day juice cleanse.
Instructions read (shake and drink juices every 2.5hrs with plenty of water) and juices were put away in the fridge ready for my start today.
Once again I’m using a Groupon Offer to try Soulmatefood Perfect Cleanse. Normal price is a whopping £195 but with the deal it’s £65 for the 3 day cleanse (+ £5 delivery). Reducing each bottle of goodness from £13 to £4.33 each.

PERFECT CLEANSE INSTRUCTIONS
DO refrigerate the juices immediately.
DO sip the five parts of your cleanse in order throughout the day alongside 5 glasses of water.
DO exercise lightly whilst on the cleanse.
DON’T drink coffee or alcohol whilst on the cleanse.
Enjoy your juices every two and a half hours and make sure you shake them well!
Some interesting ingredients and combinations however I’m concerned that the majority of the juicy content is fruit and therefore probably quite sweet. I know that, for me, sweeter juicing means that I often crave ‘bad’ food types during and after a cleanse. I’m also concerned that the bottles are 250ml each meaning a total of only 1.25 litres of nutrient based juices each day and a hankering for breads!
We will see. Watch this space!
