I have done several juice cleanses over the past year after feeling “bleh” due to the holidays, travel or what have you. I am a horrible dieter, but how I look and feel afterward is worth 3 days of juice. I’ve enjoyed both cleanses I’ve done, but Beaming is different. It’s organic, involves a salad I would order at a restaurant (hallelujah!), and the juices have more of a gourmet feel to them. It’s all created by a San Diego mom, Lisa Odenweller. If I could walk into a restaurant or juice bar, I would actually order Beaming items off the menu. They are that good.
The best way I can think of to describe the juices and smoothies that I tried is to say they have depth of flavor. I felt like I wasn’t just drinking a “fruit juice” or a “green juice.” Each has taste to savor and it felt like I was drinking food, rather than juice off the shelf. And, other than the nut milk at the end of the evening (which I love), I never had an actual smoothie with a cleanse. Let’s talk about my favorite, which is the Superfood Smoothie. Here are the ingredients:
- Homemade almond milk
- Alkaline water
- Beaming plant protein powder (hemp, chia, maca, chia blend, spirulina, wheat grass & greens)
- Maca (for energy & libido!)
- Almond butter
- Jerusalem Artichoke
- Banana and cinnamon
It tastes like a dessert. Yum!
When what you are putting in your body tastes this good, it doesn’t feel like a diet. In fact, Beaming isn’t supposed to be a diet. It’s a kick start to your system and the beginning of a healthier lifestyle.
The Beaming Salad
It’s pictured above. The combination of pomegranate and spicy seeds, persimmon, fennel, basil, tahini dressing and more was enough to send me over the edge. I thought about the creativity and the testing involved in order to come up with such a masterpiece. Was it hard? Or are some people that good at it?

Beaming strives to be a lifestyle support system. Lisa feels that cleanses on the market today leave participants hanging once the cleanse was over. Her goal is to keep in touch with the cleanse participants via post cleanse recipes and support.

Beaming is more than a cleanse, it’s a personal journey. I believe it.
UPDATE: Beaming’s cleanse program has changed a bit do to its overwhelming success. I have also since tried the Beaming 3-day cleanse (click to read my review).
