It’s official Spring is (nearly) here and the Pure Simple Juice Spring Cleanse has been launched!
Today was our first run of the Spring juices and we added a Cucumber/Red Apple/Dandelion Greens/ Fennel/ Mint/ Lemon to the cleanse. It’s AMAZING. Tastes like Spring. The refreshing and light flavors of cucumber, fennel and mint are highlighted by the cleansing elements of lemon and dandelion greens, altogether making a delightful combination. Also, dandelion greens just happen to be one of the most nutritious green leafy vegetables, excellent for digestion and to reduce inflammation.
Happy Cleansing Spring 2012!

Spring is the quintessential season for cleaning. As the Spring Equinox approaches, it is an important and inspiring time to do a cleansing fast. The days are getting lighter and longer, the flowers will begin to bloom and during this time we can all begin the process of renewal.
Naturally, as spring arrives our tendency is to begin to eat lighter. After a long winter of heavy foods, we start to prepare for the coming months of outward energy and activity by choosing more fresh raw foods. Our bodies internally begin this transition to spring by naturally releasing toxins and excess mucus, you can assist this process by doing a Spring cleanse.
What is a cleanse?
Simply put a cleanse is eliminating what you don’t want or need from your diet and following a very basic whole foods meal plan. Cleanses vary from removing inflammatory foods from your diet (such as dairy and wheat) to a complete fast; a true fast is not having anything to eat or drink at all with the exception of water.
So why a Pure Simple Juice cleanse?
It’s about providing you with an easy to follow, highly nutritious and supported cleanse experience. Juices are freshly made, organic and nutrient dense which allows your body to be flooded with excellent nutrition while at the same time they are easy to digest, giving your body and mind a much needed break.

I was recently asked why I am so passionate about my work, and this was my response:“It’s the kid smacking their lips in enjoyment, the exclamation, ‘this green juice is incredible for me, I can just feel it’ or a simple ‘thank you, the cleanse was just what I needed to get back on track.’ These are the moments I relish the most, they tell me ‘good job’ but most importantly, they represent the positive healthy experience that I hope to bring to others. As a nutrition professional, I have been counseling and teaching classes for years with the intention to share my knowledge with others and bring more awareness for people on how food affects their own body. Pure Simple Juice began as my way of really imparting that experience.”
