What I love about Spring is it’s a great time to do some cleaning. Whether that be something in your house, your environment, or your life, making way for more inviting possibilities by cleaning out the old cobwebs always feels amazing. The past few weeks I’ve been having some digestive upset so what better time for a Spring Reset Cleanse. Doing a cleanse, detox, reset, whatever you want to call it, can be done in many ways. I’m not a fan of crazy restrictive plans where you can only drink juice or eat one or two specific foods. I think that sets you up for failure almost immediately. What I do like is doing a cleanse that focuses on eating real food and focusing on health issues many people are facing: bloating, gas, headaches, digestive discomfort, stubborn lbs, lack of energy, inflammation, pain, skin issues, trouble concentrating etc. There are many common food sensitivities that can cause these symptoms, the problem is you may not be connecting the dots that this is what’s happening in your body.
Today, I spent a few hours meal prepping and gathering all the things I would need to make this next week of cleansing not one of deprivation, but just altering my normal routine a tad. I’m looking forward to eliminating my digestive issues and determining which foods are causing distress to my system. After one week on the cleanse, eating real food, and eliminating common food sensitivities, I will be reintroducing a few specific food groups to see where the problems lie.
My Food For The Week
Breakfast: Protein shakes and Sweet Potato Turkey Hash
Mix and Match Lunches and Dinners:
Protein: Chicken Breast, Salmon, Cod, Turkey Burgers
Carbs: Quinoa w/ Asparagus and Pea Shoots, Sweet Potato and Turnip Fries
More Veggies: Big Salad. Steamed Broccoli, Carrots, and Cauliflower. Sauteed Zucchini, Fennel, and Onion.
Detox does not equal deprivation, in fact you might even be eating more food than you were before and adding daily activities to help your body eliminate toxins. If you are interested in the specifics of what my reset cleanse entails send me a message and we can chat to see if it is right for you.
