If summer were a food, it’d be one of those over the top pink milkshakes with an ice cream sundae on top, cotton candy swirl, and covered in funnel cake, tossed down with an iced coffee. And if you truly embraced all the quintessential summer sweets while visiting your favorite boardwalks this summer, your body may be in need of a slight reset before hitting the ground running this fall.
Something we like to do at Pinkly Perfect is give our stomachs a nice refresher course in nutritious fruits and vegetables to rid ourselves of added sugar cravings that we so excitedly indulged in from Memorial Day until Labor Day.
While juice cleanses are a dime a dozen in today’s world, one we are so excited to tell you about is JuiceBrothers, a company made up of four friends who in 2013 decided to fill the void of cold-pressed juice options in Holland who has now expanded to New York City.
JuiceBrothers sent us their Deep Cleanse, perfect for someone new to juicing (me!) and it was both effective and tasty. Overall, every juice we tried was delicious and energizing but the Vanilla Sky (tasted like a milkshake!), Green Routine, and Dutch Spice were my favorites. While we only tried their cold-pressed juices, we are majorly eyeing their Coconut Dream Smoothie (Coconut meat, coconut water, honey, vanilla) and Acai Choco Protein Bowl (Acai, banana, pear, cacao, almond butter, vegan protein powder topped with granola, banana, cacao nibs, and coconut flakes).
What makes JuiceBrothers unique to other juices out there is that they are cold pressed and don’t include fiber, which can upset a digestive system if it’s not used to it. All fruits and vegetables are organic and their juices are proven to boost immunity and promote overall well being. Just one day of juicing and we feel so alert and clear-headed!
Getting ready for a typical fall day of football watching and beer? Swap out your drink of choice for Dragon’s Breath, made of pear, apple, carrot, grapefruit, beetroot, lemon, ginger, and perfectly resembling an autumn sangria, except all organic, raw, vegan, dairy-free, soy-free, gluten-free, and guilt-free! It’ll keep you energized for all touchdown high-fiving and won’t leave you feeling groggy the next day.
While JuiceBrothers definitely jump-started our new fall self-care routine, we also recommend the following:
- Investing in a lotion that will help protect the skin once temperatures drop
- Buying your new favorite cozy fall ensemble (hello, oversized sweater and leggings!)
- Drinking a night-time cup of decaf chai with a dollop of honey
- Getting out and enjoying the beautiful fall scenery!
What’s better than fresh, crisp air, changing leaves, and a refreshing and revitalizing cold-pressed juice?! Nothing!
