After a week of high-fat, fried food and dairy products from some festivals we celebrated, it was time to do a nice fall cleanse. Actually, a lot of people eat this way everyday (maybe even yourself!)
Since I’m not good at no-food or juice fasts and find them to be quite harsh, I was looking for something that involved eating real food, not taking any pills, and did not leave me hungry.
Here’s what I followed for 7 days:
My goal was not to lose lots of weight because I’m at a healthy amount for my height.
I wanted to see what cravings arose and to see what food may be causing me trouble when I introduced them back. I did lose 5 llbs over the course of the week and I did crave tortilla chips and some spicy foods.
If you didn’t have time to read the article, here’s the basics:
Eat brown rice, lots of steamed or sauteed veggies (using a miniscule amount or no oil), some beans and legumes, have a rice protein smoothie with real fruit and flax seeds (no added sugar) for breakfast, vegetable broth or another shake for snacks. Eat all organic items. Take an Epsom salt bath with baking soda and lavender essential oil every night. Cut out all processed foods, meat, dairy, wheat and other gluten containing grains, corn, nightshades (tomatoes, eggplant, peppers), alcohol, caffeine, sugar (natural and artificial). What’s left you say? Lots of honest, good food!
Anyway, it was pretty easy and you could continue to do it as long as you wanted.
Here’s some of the meals I ate:
|Asparagus, Green Salad, Quinoa|
|Broccoli, Sweet Potato, Quinoa|
|Golden Beets, Zucchini,
Whole Grain Rice Blend
|Kale, Chickpeas, Brown Rice|
|Brown Rice Maki Spirals|
|Mung Dahl with Cauliflower &
Long Beans and Quinoa
Wild Rice Blend
|Organic Homemade Vegetable Broth
Full of Alkaline Mineral Goodness
|Organic Ingredients for
With all the disclaimers about contacting your doctor, etc….maybe you should before doing this, even though I can’t see why anyone would not be able to eat this healthily.

I’ll bring everything over, including items for the breakfast shake and bath, prep the veggies for you for the week, make the beans & broth & grains, and leave some happy & healthy vibes for a great week.
