This is the official shout out to let you know that I'm rallying the troops and have added a February Cleanse Posse Sign Up HERE. I would like to get an idea of how many of you would like to commit to this.
To start - I suggest that you formulate a game plan for reducing your toxic load, which will help you take your raw food cleanse to a deeper level. I you haven't already, I'd like to recommend that you determine your personal state of affairs by answering the Life Cleanse Questionnaire, which you will find in my book. This set of questions is a simple tool to help you get honest with yourself about where you are today and what areas of your life need more of your attention.
In the questionnaire, we explore what is happening in your world in these important areas:
If you are new to the concept of cleansing or new to raw foods, I recommend that you start off with the 3 Day Energy Boost Cleanse. Starting here will give you a wonderful opportunity to learn how your body will react to this process of freeing up energy for detox. If you don't have a juicer or blender, simply making the commitment to eat a 100% raw food diet might be the best way for you to start.
Beyond that I recommend the 7 Day Rejuvenation Cleanse which is a wonderful protocol that can be followed consecutively for 28 days. This particular cleanse is ideal for anyone at any stage of the journey:
Upon Arising: 32 oz. pure water w/ fresh lemon or lime juice
Before Noon: 32 oz. of fresh juice or green smoothie &/or fresh seasonal fruit
Midday: Big, colorful salad w/ a delicious dressing &/or raw blended soup or a cleansing raw food entree
Snack: Allowed but only if you are truly hungry. This can be fruit, cut veggies w/ pate or dip, fresh juice or smoothie, herbal tea, elixir or a smart cocktail.
Evening: same as the midday meal.
There are over 100 recipes in my book and you can also find some great recipes for Detox & Cleansing in my Raw Food Rehab Kitchen.
The actual 28 Day Total Reset Cleanse is designed for an individual who has a good amount of weight to release and/or for those with a background of compromised diet, unhealthy lifestyle and environmental exposures. This particular cleanse will be ideal for those who have been doing this for awhile or who are really serious about taking charge of their health once & for all. The 28 day protocol starts off with 10 -14 days of liquids - think juice feast.... (juices, smoothies or blended soups/salads). The remaining days look a lot like the 7 Day Cleanse.
I highly recommend that you read Raw Food Cleanse, as it will be your faithful companion in the month of February and beyond. This book will help you elevate and align your thinking to that which promotes vibrant health and it will support you in your long term commitment to living your best life now. It also offers over 100 delicious recipes to insure your success.
