Don’t you just love mid-January (otherwise known as the point at which your New Year’s resolutions start to falter and you find yourself lining up at Bagel Planet)? Well, resolutions may be hard to keep, but that doesn’t mean we should give up. After all, as a world-famous astrophysicist likes to remind us, New Year’s is really just an arbitrary day in the time-space continuum. You can kick off your personal New Year just about anytime! So how about now?
One great way to get yourself on track is with a cleanse. Sure, it sounds like something better suited for a monastery of Buddhist monks, but once you get started the benefits can be palpable — increased energy, better digestion, an antioxidant boost, and overall sense of well-being knowing you’ve weaned yourself off the sugar/carb/processed food rollercoaster. You don’t have to test your stamina with a five- or seven-day cleanse, many of them come in one- to three-day options and a few of them even mix in some well-balanced soups and smoothies to help you stay sated.
Below, you'll find some great option that can even be purchased online. (Super easy, right?!) Here's to a healthy new New Year!
Pressed Juicery Cleanses
Even Pressed Juicery's greenest juices taste great, making this an encouraging daily cleanse for newbies. The first-timers cleanse even includes a luscious chocolate almond beverage — to ease you into your diet resolve after a season of holiday bingeing.

Juice in the Raw Believer
These cold-pressed, raw juices come packed with an array of powerful ingredients — dandelion and Swiss chard mingle with the standard lemon and spinach — and many of them are locally produced. Some of the flavors are actually kind of addictive — more Spicy Lemonade, please!

Raw Generation puts the emphasis on weight loss and packs its raw, flash-frozen juices with energy boosters and ingredients that help to reduce cravings, because as anyone who’s ever done a cleanse knows, the struggle is real. They are free of preservatives, artificial colors, artificial flavors, and chemicals.
Raw Generation Protein Cleanse
If smoothies are more your vibe, Raw Generation’s Protein Cleanse gives you three creamy vegan protein shakes to balance things out and provide that full feeling. Finally, no more starvation hallucinations. Sounds good to me.
