Feeling determined and undeterred, I decided to make my own. I am not sure if I am going to ever do a full "cleanse" but I figured adding a super healthy green drink to my morning would make for a good start. You can actually do a lot of your juicing in bulk so it is ready when you need it. And if you have a super duper blender you may choose to skip the juicing all together which is exactly what I did.
My green smoothie:
- one handful of kale, stalk removed
- half a peeled cucumber
- one cored and sliced apple
- cooled green tea, brewed with a hint of honey, add to the desired consistency

I loved it. It was refreshing and super healthy. The flavor of the uncooked kale was not overwhelming and the green tea provides a number of antioxidants, subtle flavor, and delicate sweetness. This was a good start but I am eager to experiment.
If you are looking to try the "box set" here are just a few I came across:
Suja Juice - $54 a day ($80 in shipping)
Skinny Limits - $49 a day ($60 in shipping)
Pressed Juicery - $72 a day (no additional shipping)
(in my humble opinion this one looks the best to me)
Two local places to check out:
Luna's Living Kitchen - $62 a day
Viva Raw - Their website was under construction when I was looking into this. They have partnered with Nourish Charlotte to a create a 7 day menu of clean eating for $330.
