If you’ve followed my journey for awhile, you know that diet (+ lifestyle) is a HUGE part of my Cancer Prevention Protocol, + that means getting as many vitamins + nutrients into my system as possible. So, I juice several times a week (or as much as I can), but it’s nice to take a break every once in awhile + get a little #JuiceInspo delivered, so I don’t get bored + veer off-track.
My first time ordering from Project Juice, I did the Build Your Own Custom Juice Pack, which includes 6 Organic Pressed Juices + 2 Organic Wellness Shots. I love that they have a lot to choose from (even seasonal juices) + that ordering was super quick + pretty straight-forward.
Currently on their site they have a FAB selection that includes about 8 Green-based Juices, 4 Citrus-based Juices, 4 Blends, 6 Nut Mylks + Shakes (that are thicker like, Smoothies) + 2 Chef-Crafted Soups (that I didn’t see until after I ordered, so I didn’t try any of them unfortunately). Overall, they have a really great selection… from the greenest of green ones (for more advanced detox + nutrition), to… some that are much more palatable, + easier to start with. The only thing was that… I did get a little confused on what the differences were between some of the Green Juices though – because they have so many, but with only a one or two ingredient variation between them.
Custom Organic Juice Packs
Project Juice’s Custom Juice Packs are designed to let you pick + choose your favorite Juices based upon your personal needs + likes. Pressed from up to 5 lbs of organic produce, each bottle of organic juice delivers nutrition that is bursting with flavor + filled with vitamins, enzymes + antioxidants. To order online, you have to order a minimum of at least 6 Juices + can add up to 10 assorted Wellness Shots at one time. And, your juices are best if used within 5 days of receipt.
Organic Wellness Shots
Small in size, but big in impact . . . Project Juice’s Wellness Shots are potent 2 ounce Tonics, formulated to supercharge your health! FYI: I believe you actually have to pick 6 your Juices first, before unlocking the Wellness Shots to add to your order. These can’t be ordered alone.
What I Ordered
I juice at-home, a few times a week on the reg – but when it comes to buying juices (as opposed to making my own) – I put my money where it counts + try to make sure they contain 3 things: 1. lots of dark leafys (because… washing, chopping, spin-drying + lots of fridge space), 2. rare, or organic versions of ingredients (I can’t find in the store near me), + 3. messy ingredients I despise juicing (like… fresh Turmeric, Beets, Aloe, etc. that get stuck in the juicer, stain e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g in sight, + get sticky, slimy, etc.). Don’t get me wrong… I juice all of these things, all the time, I just don’t like to. Lol. So, if I have the opportunity + can afford it – I jump on the chance to have them made for me! Here’s what I got in my first order…
- #GetYourGreensOn – Celery, Cucumber, Swiss Chard, Romaine, Cilantro, Lemon, Ginger, Aloe.
- Potion No. 10 – Pineapple, Pear, Cucumber, Kale, Spinach. Romaine, Parsley, Ginger, Turmeric, Lime.
- Beta Bomb – Orange, Carrot, Pineapple, Ginger, Lime, Turmeric, Cinnamon.
- Watermelon Berry – Watermelon, Strawberry, Young Coconut Water, Green Apple, Lime.
- Cashew Mylk – Raw Cashew, Purified Water, Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Vanilla, Raw Agave.
- Mint Chip Shake – Raw Almonds, Purified Water, Spinach, Banana, Dates, Cacao Nibs, Vanilla Bean, Sea Salt, Mint.
- Turmeric Tonic – Pineapple, Turmeric, Aloe, Ginger, Chamomile.
- Liver Flush – Grapefruit, Beet, Aloe, Milk Thistle, Burdock Root, Cayenne.
The ingredients in ALL of these are ALL Organic, BTW!
What I Thought
Ok, so… you’re prob never gonna hear me say that the strongest ones are my faves. Ever. #realtalk. But… they were all pretty good + honestly, some of theeee best bottled juices I’ve tried, hands-down!
When I ordered it, I knew I would definitely not be drinking #GetYourGreens for the taste, + I was right. But… I got it down, got the nutrition + that’s all that matters. 😉 Potion No. 10 was a bit lighter + brighter, + I of course enjoyed that one more (could drink those all day).
Loved the Beta Bomb – I make something similar, but never thought to add in a lime (instead of a lemon) + oh! The cinnamon… nice touch! Out of the juices though – the Watermelon Berry (which is Seasonal, I think) had my heart, + was definitely the sweetest out of the bunch!
As for the Mylks + Shakes – I’m obsessed with the Mint Chip Shake (must-have if you get box!) + love how the Cacao Nibs are blended perfectly to taste like bits of chocolate chips, but not totally. Perfect! The Cashew Mylk on the other hand – was probably me least fave thing in the box. Full disclosure: even though I love Cashews, I’ve never had Cashew Milk before, so I wanted to try it + I just wasn’t a fan. Pretty convinced after this, that I’m an Almond Milk girl, all the way! I was hoping for that super-creamy consistency everyone talks about + I just didn’t find it with this, but, I’ve never tried any others to compare it to – so no points off for that.
And, last… of course, is the Wellness Shots – both definitely packed a potent punch, + it was cool to try things I’d never had in a juice before (like: Chamomile, Milk Thistle + Burdock Root). Again, these are not something I imagined I’d love the taste of, but they truly weren’t bad… if you drink them like you’d take a shot at the bar, Lol. Same thing, only different. Haha.
Juicing Tips For Beginners
If you’ve never juiced before, or have never been able to stick with it, the best advice I can give is to try to start out with the sweeter, lighter greens + brighter, more colorful juices at first, then as your palate changes over time – you can level-up + go darker.
I’ve had more success in changing my lifestyle that way, rather than going balls to the wall + heading strait for the strongest ones. Now, for the most part – I mainly only drink the darkest + most nutritious ones, + see the lighter, sweeter ones as a mid-afternoon snack, or a dessert-like treat when I feel like something sweet! You have to start somewhere though + it definitely takes time to get to that point with your tastebuds. Just give it a chance.
