Can Can Cleanse

By February 4, 2012Food Eater

Being that I am so Californian these days, I decided to do a juice cleanse.  We do have a Blentek blender and a juicer, but the thought of juicing 8 different juices a day for 3 days seemed like way too much effort.  Yes, I am lazy.  So I started researching online to see what good, local juice cleanses there were.  And being that I live in San Francisco, I didn’t have to look far…

I did look at one delivery service that I had read about in the NY Times called BluePrint Cleanse that delivers but isn’t sourced locally.  The price of this one is about $65 a day for 6 juices.

When you do a search on Yelp for juice cleanses in SF, you get a plethora of different options.  But the one that appealed to me the  most was the Can Can cleanse.  I love the cute little jars and their brand image.  Plus it seemed like a reasonable option that didn’t only include juices, but a soup and almond milk as well.  Instead of the 6 juices a day served in plastic bottles that the Blue Print offered, the Can Can has 8 juices a day.  Plus they are a local company that will deliver the fresh juices to your house (for a charge of $15).

Each day, you will consume the same seasonal menu of 8 nutrient-rich beverages:

  • 2 Fruit Juices
  • 2 Green Vegetable Juices
  • 2 Herbal Teas
  • 1 Nut Milk
  • 1 Savory Soup

Approximately 1000 calories per day.

The total price of the cleanse is $185, but there are add-ons like a tote bag and delivery fees.  I opted for both even though I’m not sure what the tote bag is for.

I will start the actual cleanse on Monday – with delivery done of all the juices on Sunday evening around 7pm.  I’m not quite sure I can fit this into the fridge!  You also have the option of picking up the juices at their location.   You are supposed to prep your body with a pre-cleanse eliminating alcohol and caffeine, etc…

According to the website, the schedule for consuming juices is:

  • 8:00am  Lemon Ginger Juice
  • 9:00am  Green Juice
  • 10:30am Dandelion Tea
  • 12:30pm Winter Orange Soup
  • 2:30pm   Spiced Apple Juice
  • 5:00pm  Green Juice
  • 7:00pm  Mixed Nut Milk
  • 8:00pm  Echinacea Lemongrass Tea

Well, wish me luck.  I’ll do an update once the cleanse is through.  Let’s see if I can get through it!
