LifeStyle MakeOver 2012 Part 3 ~ First Cleanse of 2012!!!

Hello Hello HELLOOOOO BlissFULL Hearters 😀 Hope this video and blog post finds you feeling joyous and super pumped up about participating in the ‘mini’ cleanse that will be starting Sunday Jan. 15th. Now, I want to make sure to express to those of you that work a standard  M-F 9-5 job may want to do this cleanse the following weekend (Jan. 20th -23rd) I say this because it is recommend to do any kind of cleanse or significant dietary change in a space where you won’t be too hectic or hurried. I happened to work on weekends, so a Sunday is a good day for me to start and I REALLY REALLY REALLY WANT YOU to  join me, but if not DO IT THIS MONTH and find 3 days that will work for you.

I am seriously looking forward to this. We’re going to feel so amazing ….well, MORE amazing!!!!

First things first… You SHOULD NOT be starving on this cleanse! If you’re hungry, eat a healthy raw snack, drink water, drink tea, make some juice, have fruit, have dried fruit…just as long as it’s RAW and try to avoid too much sugar. It’s a common misconception that when you detox or cleanse that you starve. The only thing that starves are the nasty addictions you have to sugar, greasy foods, caffeine and starch. lol. We WANT to starve those bad habits to death….make em disappear 😉

Watch this 🙂

So, here’s the outline (recipes to follow) * Make sure you get some form of daily exercise however small, DRINK LOTS OF WATER and Make sure Scrape your tongue and GET A FULL NIGHTS REST every night 🙂:

DAY 1

  • Wake up ~ drink a large glass of pure water (alkaline if possible) with lemon (can be hot or cold)
  • Breakfast ~ Green smoothie or bowl of yummy fruit
  • Lunch ~ Super Amazing Salad
  • Snack ~ Laxative tea with Lemon (such as Smooth Move) and fresh fruit
  • Dinner ~ Taco Salad

Day 2

I know that it doesn’t look so exciting there, but wait till you see the recipes AND let me remind you that greens will super power you!!! It is seriously the purest and cleanest energy high you can have. Once you experience a energy high from eating lots of greens, you’ll laugh at things like 5 hour energy. I’m not kidding. You might even feel so amazing after 3 days that you’ll want to stay on cleanse and continue with a healthy raw lifestyle 😀

Soups

Simple Miso Soup ~ I love Miso Soup. It’s the best and you can pretty much put all kind of veggies in it! So have fun with this too. I use white miso but you can use red or yellow or a combo.

  • green onions
