Cleanse: Day One


If you are joining me on the cleanse, I hope your first day is going well! Here is a sample menu of what I ate yesterday. You should be drinking enough water throughout the day so that you have to go to the bathroom at least once per hour. If you're not, then drink more water! Also, try to get a little exercise each day. Yesterday, I did an hour of Pilates, but walking, Yoga, 20 minutes on the elliptical, etc. are all good options. The more your body moves, the faster it will release toxins.

Upon Waking
Drink a large glass of room temperature water with lemon juice (the more the better)

Breakfast
Blueberry Smoothie
1 cup almond milk
1/2 cup blueberries
scoop super greens powder
scoop raw maca powder
4-5 ice cubes
Blend everything in a blender until smooth


Lunch
Sautéed Petrale Sole with Spinach
2 thin slices petrale sole
1 tsp coconut oil
1 tsp cumin
2 cups spinach
salt to taste
lemon to taste
Sauté the petrale sole in coconut oil on high heat and sprinkle cumin on both sides. Set aside on a plate covered in a paper towel (to soak up oil). Use the same pan to sauté spinach. Squeeze lemon juice over entire dish and salt to taste. 

Snack
Handful of almonds
Glass of coconut water
Handful of blueberries

Dinner
Carrot Ginger Soup
3 cups carrots, diced
1 large yellow onion, diced
1 inch ginger, finely diced
6 cups filtered water
Salt to taste
Chopped cilantro for garnish
Add all ingredients to a large pot and bring to a boil. Once boiling, cover and reduce to a simmer for 10-15 minutes (until vegetables are tender). Remove from heat and blend all together. Taste and add salt before blending some more. You can also add more ginger at this point if you like it a little more gingery.
