Over the last few years, there has been an increased spotlight on health and wellness in Boston. Many new businesses have popped up providing access to fresh, healthy whole food items like Nectar & Green, Nella Pasta, Thirst Juice, and Cocobeet.

I was introduced to Cocobeet a few months ago and have developed a pretty strong love affair with their mix of cold-pressed juices, nutrient-dense smoothies, and grab-and-go healthy raw food options. I especially love their acai bowl (the best in the city, in my opinion), juices like Kickstart and Green Genes, and of course their rich chia pudding. Don’t even get me started on the kale chips!

I recently partnered with Cocobeet to try out a three-day cleanse so that I could sample a greater variety of their offerings and reboot my body (and mind) after a pretty hectic few months.

The first day of my cleanse started with chia pudding for breakfast, plenty of smoothies and juice throughout the day, and perhaps my new favorite, the vegan caesar salad with chickpea crunch for dinner. Over the subsequent two days, I sampled Cocobeet’s reroot cleanse, which incorporates two power smoothies in addition to juice.

I’ve done several juice cleanses in the past, and I have to say that they aren’t always my favorite. I can totally understand the value of hitting the re-start button but I don’t like the feeling of deprivation. I love that Cocobeet offers customizable cleanses, many of which include real food. Plus, if you are going to do an all-liquid cleanse, it’s nice to have the option of drinking a smoothie in addition to juice. There’s no one-size-fits-all cleanse, in my opinion, and I really love how thoughtful and dedicated Cocobeet’s founders, Kyle and Onur, are about the individual process. For the most part, everything at Cocobeet is organic, which is a big deal to Kyle and Onur, and definitely a big deal to us, too.
