It’s Getting Juicey Around Here! Paleta Juice Detox: Organic, Tasty and It Works!!
I have talked about Paleta before– many times. I am so impressed with the food that when I was told that they had a new juice line, I knew it would be fabulous. However I was thinking of it as an addition to the food or as snacks or instead of soda, tea or coffee. Detox was an entirely different matter. Even the thought of just 1 day being without solid food was like “REALLY”?
What to know about the Cold Pressed Juices:
WHY COLD PRESSED JUICES?
By pressing the produce, instead of grinding, we avoid oxidizing the fruit and vegetables and help keep nutrients and enzymes intact. Blending and chopping in a blender can remove many of the vitamins, enzymes, proteins, and minerals that fruits and vegetables provide. More so, the blender heats up, thus exposing the fruits and vegetables to higher temperatures and further sapping them of their nutritional value.
WHY DO A JUICE DETOX?
The standard American diet contains countless toxins. The more toxins in your body, the more you suppress your immune system, making you more prone to disease and sickness. Your body uses a lot of energy to digest food. By juice cleansing, you give your system a break from digestion and allow it to focus on detoxification and healing. The rest you give your body allows you to recharge and repair your system, giving a boost to your metabolism and leading to higher energy levels.

I had a chance to talk to Chef Kelly Boyer and also her staff when they offered me a free one day detox regimen. I had been hesitant simply because I was concerned about taste. However I had talked with a couple of other people who had done the detox for a few days and they loved it!
I was less sketchy at that point and thought about just jumping in. The hard part is choosing flavors. For those on twitter, Chef Kelly and I were exchanging tweets on what flavors to try and a couple other people chimed in. Given that there ae a lot of flavors and I was to choose just FIVE plus one milk shake, it was hard. But with the flavors Kelly had suggested for me, plus more from friends who had done this, I finally came up with five!
KALE KOOLER | METABOLIZE + DIGEST
kale, pineapple, jicama, lime, serrano, cilantro
surprisingly good. I had this first thing in the morning. It was a toss-up between the carrot and this. I thought this was going to be hard. WRONG! I should have started with carrot first because this was light, bright and had a serious zing. LOVED IT!
APPLE ORCHARD | REFRESH + SOOTHE
granny smith, honeycrisp, lemon, ginger
RED ROOT | DETOX + NOURISH
beet, carrot, apple, lemon, ginger
This was one of the scary ones. I wasn’t a huge fan of beets: I like them roasted– not in a liquid format. However this was amazingly tasty and it had texture to it so it was filling. GREAT choice!
COCO COLADA | RESTORE + HYDRATE
coconut, pineapple, lime
Light, bright, fun and much like a cocktail without the alcohol. It rocked. Great for end of day sort of things when you want light and refreshing!
CARROT COCKTAIL | PURIFY + BALANCE
carrot, yam, turmeric, ginger, lemon
This is one I saved for last– big mistake because it was a bit heavier than I anticipated and at the end of the day I was FULL and didn’t want to drink it all- particularly since I had prickly pear before it. Should have reversed it. It was great the next day (what was left) and I really felt it would have sustained me earlier in the day– like around lunch!
PRICKLY PEAR | ENERGIZE + CLEANSE
pear, prickly pear cactus, lemon, ginger
What a great blend of this one. I had never had cactus or prickly pear and it was amazingly good. Very impressive– it’s got texture plus bright flavor and it was tasty!
MAGIC MILKSHAKE | SATISFY + ENERGIZE
cashew, almond, coconut, date, vanilla bean, cinnamon, nutmeg, sea salt
(available in vanilla bean, chocolate hazelnut & strawberry)
My choice: chocolate hazelnut! This was my lunch. Should have put carrot in here and had this for dinner because it was YUMMY and chocolate and nutty — just really really good!
As with the food plan I had tried with Paleta – both the detox and the regular food plan, this was more than I could consume in one day– so I had some left over for the next day. It felt good, tasted good and I almost wished I had another day to do a detox. I felt more alert. I did drop a couple pounds in the process- but that was not the point.
The cold pressed juices are really really good. They do need refrigeration– this is not to be left on your desk. I love the concept and the bottles are adorable– as in I wanted to keep them all. I did return them after I ran them through the dishwasher into the Paleta bag they had used to drop the detox to me.
Here’s where to start:Paleta Cold Pressed Juices.
Each day you do this is $100 and it’s worth it for quality ingredients that are locally sourced and really carefully chosen.
Thanks to Chef Kelly and staff– I love the food and the juices. You can even do a detox with a single real food meal too as well as strictly juices!
