2012 Holiday Gift Guide: Celebrate With Juice Cleanses in DFW (Includes Giveaway)

Every year on SideDish, we like to devote our energy to supporting small local food businesses here in DFW. For twelve days, we’ve been highlighting jams, jellies, pies, classes, wines, coffees, teas, and basically any food product made locally on Dallas (or close to it) soil. Today is Juice Cleanse Day. For more gift ideas, take a look through our last eleven days at the bottom of this post.

Roots Juices

Back in October, ShopTalk editor Raya Ramsey did a 5-day cleanse with Roots Juices, the company that packages fruits and vegetables into neat containers for a healthy, nutritious experience. Well, she loved it. Raya is currently sitting right next to me and and raving about the almond milk, which she says is creamy and nutty tasting.

Roots has several kinds of kits: the Detox & Cleanse (very popular), Hangover Recovery, Cocktail Mixers, and The 6 Pack. Any of these would be perfect for that health-conscious friend or relative who’s always wanted to do a juice cleanse, but never knew how to go about doing it. And since Brent Rodgers, the man behind Roots Juices, is feeling very generous this holiday season and knows exactly what you need, he’s offering a free Hangover Recovery kit to one very lucky SideDish reader. Here’s how to win: The third person to tweet out a link to this post (please include @DSideDish) will earn this $30-value prize. Got that? So easy, right? Look, here’s all the stuff you could win:

The Gem Cleanse

Last week, I tried the Green Glow (kale, cucumber, apple, lemon, and ginger) from The Gem. It was smooth and sweet, which was surprising from all the kale that went into it. The apple hid a lot of the bitterness, and it tasted like the Fountain of Youth. Let me tell you, this ugly green-colored vegetable and fruit juice is the elixir of immortality.

The Gem has so many different cleanse options. Check them out here. Give yourself a little Christmas present this year and treat yourself to a gem of a cleanse.
