What Your Cleanse Will Look Like…
A Little Green Cleanse is not a diet. This is about detoxing your body and learning about and building in healthy new habits to your daily routine. This is about nourishing yourself, not depriving yourself. It is about adding in nutrient powerhouses to your routine and removing inflammatory foods. It is about rebooting your system.
Imagine waking up and having farm-raised, organic scrambled eggs over a bed of perfectly seasoned delicate kale, with a warm mug of mint tea. For lunch, quinoa topped with nuts and herbs and fresh veggies. Snacking on olives and cashews. Dinner is a delicious piece of broiled salmon, with a side of crunchy fresh salad, and farmer’s market asparagus with olive oil and lemon juice. You will be eating fresh greens every day, seasonal vegetables, a variety of gluten-free grains, nuts, beans, eggs, fruit, fish, and more.
You are making a commitment to yourself to be at your ultimate health during the cleanse period. Access to the Members Portal, daily emails from Christy, and support of the group help you do that. You are less likely to “cheat” because you have blocked out these days to eat well and skip the sugar. More than 90% of participants complete it feeling healthier, more even-tempered, and excited to continue their new habits. The majority of participants lose 3-4 pounds in 10 days (24% lose more than 5 lbs!) and report better moods, more-even sleep, and clearer skin.
What will you need to do? You’ll need to register, and then start reading through the info. on the Member’s Portal (which will appear on the top right of your menu bar after you register.) You’ll want to block out the Saturday–the day before your cleanse begins–as your “prep day.” You’ll peruse the recipes on the Member’s Portal and decide what you want to make, and then you’ll grocery shop! Every night you’ll make a dish or two that will be your dinner and will hold you over until the next day. Much of your dinner prep will happen the night before. If you a heavy coffee drinker, I recommend beginning reducing coffee at least a WEEK before. You have access to the Member’s Portal (your bible during the 1o days) until 2 days after the cleanse ends. Below is info. about what you’ll be removing, and what you’ll be adding in!
