Tag: Juice Cleanse
Local Lift Juice Bar in North Vancouver recently had a 3 day juice cleanse deal for $79 for 18 bottles of fresh pressed juice, herbal teas. $20 bottle deposit was requested afterwards because I wasn’t picking up the juices daily. I have always loved detoxing and resetting my body for a healthy start.
Local Lift Juice Bar 3 Day Juice Cleanse Consists of:
- 18 jars of fresh juices in mason jars
- 3 lemons (1 for each day)
- 3 cups of master cleanse mixture (12 oz cup each)
- a bunch of spirulina tablets (2500 mg)
- herbal tea bags
I have done a few juice cleanses. Comparing the prices and quality of the juice cleanses itself, I have to say my favorite is still The Juice Truck and The Juicery Co.. I will pay $195 no problem.
I did not enjoy this juice cleanse form Local Lift Juice Bar at all. Let my tell you why.
- Inconsistency and quality of each bottle
- No instructions for the juice cleanse
- No labels of ingredients
- Packaging (or lack thereof)
- Healthy and safety concerns
The problem with this juice cleanse is that it comes with no instructions. There are no description that comes with any of the juice bottles. No ingredients labeled.
I am not interested to visit their website and research what I am drinking in a “liquid facial” juice. That is silly.
I asked if there was “a specific order I should consume this cleanse?” The answer was “it doesn’t matter. Or if you must, drink the greener juices in during the day.” Puzzling.
There is no protein like shake, an almond milk or nut mylk mixture. I later found out there are spirulina tablets which acts as a protein replacement.
What bothered me the most was the inconsistency of each bottle of juice. The lackluster commitment to produce the best juice cleanse for the consumer.
- The juices are not filled to the brim and sealed.
- Oxygen promotes oxidization. See above photo.
- Some juices had more volume than others.
- By day 2, some juices were browning.
Master cleanse drinks were packaged in to go paper coffee cups. By the time it arrived home, the cups were mangled inside the red plastic trays.
The spirulina tablets were loosely packaged in pastry take out bags. Some were crushed and broken. I simply did not feel very safe taking these pills. There were again no instructions as to how many or how frequently I should be taking there spirulina tablets. I may know what spirulina tablets are. But does an average consumer? Again, there were no instructions or descriptions what these pills are.
If you are wondering. Spirulina tablets are blue green algae, 100% natural highly nutritious micro salt water plant. Spirulina contains rich vegetable protein. Spirulina health benefits include a boost to the immune system, improved digestion, controls appetite and contains a wide range of minerals.
I could not complete the juice cleanse from The Local Lift Juice Bar simply because I did not feel that it was a cleanse. I simply drank the juice as a orange juice drink, beet juice drink or whatnot.
Other facts about The Local Lift Juice Bar juice cleanse:
- The juice cleanse does not come with any packaging.
- The bottles were provided in plastic trays.
- $20 bottle deposit required for the 3 day juice cleanse.
- Pick up only. No delivery available.
I do not recommend this as juice cleanse or meal replacement. However, it may be a deal if you are looking for some fresh juices for normal consumption.

What is also nice about The Juicery Co is their Custom Juicing. Designed for you. Delivered twice a week.
We drove by here one day and we loved the friendly services and cute space. I like that fact that I can sit down and enjoy my juice without having to rush out. We did not order a full cleanse but rather two delicious cold press juices. We came specially for Vanilla Bean and Pear Almond Mylk but I guess we were too late. It was sold out. Instead, The Juicery Co suggested we try another Nut Mylk – sprouted almonds, filtered water, vanilla bean, dates, and cold brew coffee. The Coffee Almond Mylk was made to order and was very tasty. I can’t deny having coffee infused was very aromatic. It was also a nice pick me up mid-afternoon! They also have an awesome homemade Almond Milk Recipe online.
The other was Strawberries, lime and Mint. This was not on their regular menu but was their Daily Special. Knowing how much strawberry pulp could be wasted if I were to juice this myself with my Breville JE98XL Two-Speed Juice Fountain Plus, it was a quick and easy decision. This juice was sweet and a little bit tangy. But it was definitely a treat. I’m looking forward to my next cleanse with The Juicery Co. It’s always good to compare and change things up!

I am a big believer in the potent and powerful cleansing system inherit in each of our bodies. The problem is over time we over eat and / or eat too much fatty, greasy food that are toxins to our body. It slows down our digestive system, clogs our pores, and clouds our judgement of what we think our bodies require. Really, all we need are some healthy ingredients and let mother nature do her thing. Juicing has incredible healing power and juice cleansing has the potential to catalyze. The following beet juice recipe will help you kick start your metabolism and help detox those dirty toxins from your kidney.
There of many benefits of beet juice. The follow are a few beet juice benefits and beet juice nutrition facts:
- high folic acid
- high manganese
- high vitamin A, vitamin C, and vitamin C
- healing powers for anemia, liver, skin, kidneys, lymphatic circulation, tiredness, eye, liver, skin problems, detoxification, cancer
- kill fungi
- strong antioxidant
- anti inflammatory propperties
- reliefs skin problems
Beet juice goes well with carrots, cucumber and celery. But I find beet juice goes best with apples, lemon, lime. I use my handy Breville JE98XL Two-Speed Juice Fountain Plus and the follow beet juice recipe takes only 10 mins to prepare and make.
Beet Juice Recipe:
Serves two 250ml cup
- 1 Lemon Juiced
- 1 Lime Juiced
- 3 Beet Bulbs (skin removed)
- 2 Apples
- wash and remove skin from beets. Remove root ends and cut in quarters before putting into the juicer.
- wash and cut apple in quarters.
- cut lemon and lime in half and juice (depending how tart you like your beet juice, add as desired after the you are done juicing)
- Add carrot, cucumber, parsley as desired.
Notes: I like to add a splash of lime because it brightens and lifts the beet juice. It adds a refreshing flavor that compliments the lemon.
Apples reduces inflammation and sweetens the drink. Apples are full of Pectin that binds to and eliminates toxins from the gut as well as helping to reduce high cholesterol, again by binding to it and removing it from the body.
Lemon are great for cleansing and detoxifying the body, especially the liver and kidneys. The acid scours the intestinal tract; eliminating toxins; neutralizing harmful bacteria.
Limes are great for healing aches and pains, and cleansing the system. The acid scours the intestinal tract; eliminating toxins; neutralizing harmful bacteria. Limes are high in vitamin A and C, folate, and beta-carotene, Zinc, selenium, bioflavonoids, and citric acid.
