What are the details of the C.R.O.P. Juice cleanse?

C.R.O.P. Juice is the favorite shop among the local Yogis of Sarasota. They offer cold-pressed, raw, organic, produce in their juice blends along with a mix of other healthy and delicious menu items. C.R.O.P.’s 3-day juice cleanse nourishes your body with what it truly needs and elevates your energy levels making you feel and look great. The cleanse will cut down on your cravings for those foods and snacks that tempt you on a daily basis. A crop feast is a highly concentrated burst of goodness that your mind and body will truly appreciate. It’s a wonderful way to infuse your body with raw living enzymes and nutrients.

For those interested in fully committing to the weekend’s cleanse the 6 daily C.R.O.P. juices alone will satisfy your diet for the entire weekend. If you are unaccustomed to juice cleanses or you feel yourself needing other whole foods to keep you happy throughout the weekend Yogi Bhodi will provide healthy options such as avocados, nuts, fruits, and vegetables to all participants. It should be advised that if you are interested in eating at any of the nearby restaurant options on Siesta Key it is encouraged to stick to healthy and nutritious dieting options such as grilled chicken or fish and leafy green vegetables as often as possible. Listen to your body! You are the best judge for what your body truly needs. Eating a healthy and sufficient regiment will help you get the most out of your weekend.
