Is it Kosher?

Juices

Can you tell me about the juice-making process?

We use High Pressure Pascalization - high pressure instead of heat - to destroy the pathogenic microorganisms and to naturally extend its shelf life. Unlike pasteurization, pascalization is completed on the finished product in its package without the use of heat which helps retain the sensory and nutrition properties of the juice. We do not apply heat to our cold-pressed juice and juice beverages. We don't cook juice!®

How should I store my juice?

Take your juice out of the box and keep it in the refrigerator. Remember to toss the ice packs in the freezer so they’re ready should you need to tote your juice around.

How long can my juices last?

You should consume your juice within six days of receiving it for the best quality. Remember to keep refrigerated and refer to the 'best by' date on each bottle.

I thought that cold-pressed juice is only good for three to five days. What changed?

Advancements in science and technology! Our method of juice processing, High Pressure processing, allows our products to have a longer shelf life than fresh squeezed juice.

What is the difference between the juice you sell in stores, and the juice you ship?

The is no difference between the juice we sell in the store and the juice we ship. Ordering from BluePrint.com affords you the convenience of having your fresh juices delivered right to your door.

Why does this juice look different from when I last purchased it?

Our juices are handcrafted using organic fruits and vegetables and some variations may occur as with any agricultural crop based on seasonality, crop conditions and geography, such as: Settling or Separation: BluePrintJuice® has no artificial flavors, colors or preservatives, or other ingredients that can prevent the natural settling process. Be sure to give your juice a good shake before drinking! White Specks: Juices that contain ginger may have white specks in the bottom of the juice bottle because of its density. Not to worry! It’s ginger sediment, which naturally settles to the bottom of the bottle. Clumps in the Cashew Nut Non-Diary Milk: We assure you that this is completely normal, and the juice is still high quality and safe to consume. Shake well before drinking!

How many bottles of juice should I have in one day?

You should have 6 bottles of juice for each day of the cleanse (if you ordered a 3 day then you will have 18 juice bottles). When ordering, specify how many days you plan to cleanse. We recommend no more than a 3-day cleanse for a healthy adult.

 


 

Cleansing

When is the best time to cleanse?

Consult with your health care provider to determine if cleansing is right for you.

What level should I do? What do you recommend?

If you haven’t cleansed before, and Foundation Level cleanse is a good place to start. If you have cleansed before and feel like stepping it up a bit, go for an Inspiration cleanse. If you love green juice and want a different cleansing experience, go ahead to our Renovation level cleanses!

Does it really matter what order I drink the juices?

It does! We encourage drinking juices in the proper order to assimilate to the cleanse system (Cleanse Instructions). That said, don't worry if you switch it up a bit and have half of your Cashew Nut Non-Dairy Milk first thing in the morning. Green juice is always best first, so try to stick to the plan when you can. But don’t fret if you need to improvise. Space them out, during the day, as you like and stay hydrated with water or herbal tea in between juices. Try to finish your final drink two hours before bedtime.

Should I continue to take my vitamin? Can I do this if I am on any medications?

-Please discuss the cleanse program with your health care provider if you have any concerns about medications or supplements.

I'm allergic to cashews – do you have a replacement for the Cashew Non-Dairy Milk?

Yes – we do cater to those with cashew allergies. Please order the BluePrint® OG Nut Free cleanse. Please be aware that all of our juices and juice beverages are made in a factory, which processes cashews.

Where do I get my protein?

The concept of the cleanse is to restrict solid food, including macronutrients like fat and protein from your diet. You'll get some protein from our Cashew Nut Non-Dairy Milk. While the Cashew Nut Non-Dairy Milk contains 8 grams of protein per 16 fl. oz. serving - it is not a high-quality protein with all the essential amino acids.

Will a Cleanse slow my metabolism?

Metabolism is the body's ability to convert food to fuel and how efficiently your body uses that fuel. A person's metabolism is complex and related to many factors including diet, exercise, and heredity. The Cleanse program replaces solid foods with liquids in the daily diet and may require the body to adjust its metabolism. Keep in mind that everybody is different.

How much weight will I lose?

We suggest that you monitor your weight to ensure that you maintain a healthy weight.

Will I gain all the weight back?

Hopefully, if weight management is your goal, BluePrintCleanse® brand will put you on a path towards healthier habits.

Will a one-day Cleanse do anything?

Yes! There are benefits of doing a one-day Cleanse, once a week. It has been an Eastern practice for centuries, used as a quick strategy to support the immune system, keep you focused, and allow the body to detoxify.

What are detox symptoms? Will I get them?

During a Cleanse, the body is essentially detoxifying. For example: When the body eliminates coffee, symptoms usually include headaches, nervousness, and shakiness. When protein, meats, and fats are eliminated, you may experience skin eruptions, body odor, or a coated tongue. Lucky for you, we keep symptoms to a minimum; BluePrintCleanse® is designed with gradual elimination in mind.

What if I don’t want so much sugar?

If you're looking to steer away from sugar, try the Renovation Level Keep it 100 cleanse as it has the lowest sugar content.

Is it okay to exercise while cleansing?

Absolutely! You will be amazed to see that as your digestive tract rests, your energy level may get a boost. Go ahead and grab that yoga mat, but be sure to drink plenty of water.

How often should I Cleanse?

Whenever you experience any of the following: fatigue/general lack of energy, sleeplessness, anxiety/depression, digestive problems, at the first sign of a cold and, before and after holidays or other events that lead to overindulging. We recommend doing a Cleanse once a month for at least three days. Make it a healthy habit.

My BluePrint® cleanse arrived and the ice packs have melted. Is that bad?

No! They're only meant to stay frozen during transit. Remember to transfer your juice and juice beverages to the refrigerator as soon as possible for best quality.

I haven’t gone to the bathroom at all, and it's day two. Is that normal? Safe?

This is an expected side effect of the BluePrintCleanse® and one of the reasons to schedule a colonic. Reduced input means reduced output.

My teeth need to gnaw on something... either gum or my colleague’s arm. Can I chew gum?

Chewing gum contributes to gas and confuses the digestive process. What does this mean? Your stomach is getting ready for food that isn’t coming. However, if you’re tempted to chew off your colleague’s arm, please chew the gum, and make it sugarless.

Can I have seltzer or sparkling water?

Seltzer will contribute gas to your system, so it’s not ideal – but if it’s going to save you from drinking “other” beverages – it’s not a bad option.

So, there will be instructions in it right?

Of course! In each box we ship there are instruction on the order in which to drink the juices. Also, please click here (Insert link to cleanse instruction page) for instructions.

Can I sweeten my tea?

If you must, use a very small amount of agave nectar. It’s the all-natural sweetener that we use in our cleanse juice and juice beverages.

What do I eat when I’m done with my Cleanse?

The key is easing in and out of the Cleanse. Slowly introduce lighter fare, such as veggies, lean meats, poultry and fish, and low-fat or fat-free dairy products. Both pre and post Cleanse, stay away from highly processed foods, and you'll be a happy camper.

Can my child do a BluePrint® Brand Cleanse?

A cleanse program is recommended for the general healthy adult population and is not recommended for children who are still growing. That said, our BluePrint® 16oz Originals and Crafted with Cold-Pressed drinks are a delicious alternative to soda.

Can I do this if I am pregnant or nursing?

A cleanse program is recommended for the general population of healthy individuals and is not recommended for those who are pregnant or nursing who require daily intake of solid foods for proper nutrition.

Can I smoke on the cleanse?

You already know the answer to this, but we won’t tell you how to live your life. As a company, we do not condone smoking for the health of our employees and for the general population.

Can I drink diet soda?

Nope. We don’t recommend it during a cleanse. Try to drink water with lemon or herbal or green tea instead.

Can I do a BluePrint® cleanse and eat food too?

The idea of a cleanse is to only consume the juice so that your digestive system has time to rest. The benefits of a cleanse will be lost if you eat solid food.

Can I drink BluePrint® Kombucha Tea while on a BluePrint® cleanse?

We love Kombucha because it’s great for digestion. But it also contains added sugar and black tea (caffeine), which is not ideal during a cleanse. Drink it while preparing for and breaking your cleanse.

I have a lunch meeting I can’t cancel. If I eat a light salad, will it mess everything up?

Try to stick to the foods listed on our Cheat Sheet. In place of dressing, use fresh lemon juice.

I can’t get the Green Juice down. I’ve tried everything! Is it okay to skip them?

Skip the Green Juice? No way! It’s the workhorse of the BluePrintCleanse®. Power through so that you get the good stuff: vitamins, minerals, anti-oxidants, flavanoids, enzymes, and polyphenols. For variation, try adding fresh-squeezed lemon juice, pouring the juice over ice, or drinking through a straw.

How long should I cleanse?

That depends on your goals. A three-day BluePrint® brand cleanse gives digestion a rest and cleanses the blood. A five-day BluePrint® brand cleanse starts the process of rebuilding and maintaining a healthy the immune system. A ten-day BluePrint® brand cleanse will reset the body. We recommend a 3-day cleanse for most healthy adults. The length of a cleanse is an entirely personal decision. Consult with your healthcare provider if you intend to complete a 5 or 10-day cleanse program.

I'm addicted and want to do this every week! How many days in a row can I cleanse?

We recommend that you always listen to your body and take it day by day. If you're feeling particularly inspired, try a 10-day BluePrint® brand cleanse after consulting with your healthcare provider! We suggest that healthy adults start with a 3-day cleanse.
