A few images from the last 7 days of cleansing…

I’ve been surprised at how delicious the recipes are! Although my sister’s convinced I only think so because I was already eating a plant-based diet to begin with. I disagree, but I guess we’ll never know for sure until she agrees to try them… ;) I believe Yahweh Yoga is releasing a book (soon) full of these recipes and direction for completing the cleanse yourself. Until then, you can access cleanse info through their website

It’s been up and down, with good days and harder days. Wait, who am I kidding- every day has its harder moments that require large amounts of mental discipline. :) I will say, it helps to celebrate and commiserate with others (thanks, Kendra!). On the whole, I feel good, though. Lighter somehow, and surprisingly energized. It’s been totally worth it.

In a last minute turn of events, I committed to a 30 day cleanse facilitated by Yahweh Yoga. On the whole, I eat pretty healthy. I’ve maintained a plant-based diet for 3 years now, with some exceptions while pregnant, because sometimes I just really needed that piece of pizza! (growing a baby wasn’t a cake walk :). And speaking of cake, while pregnant, I think I became addicted to baking. Big time. Now this was vegan baking, mind you, but what I’ve come to learn is that excess – in all forms really – isn’t great for you. And I’ve definitely gotten used to a little (read: a lot of) something sweet after dinner (also lunch). ;)

A friend of mine posted on Instagram that she was doing this cleanse, and of course, as all things food usually do, my interest was piqued. I wondered if it was reasonable and doable. There are so many of these things out there, and I read about them and think there is NO way I could do that. But this one… it’s reasonable. I’ve never done it before, but I’m committing to seeing it through in a very reasonable way. Re-centering, recharging, and renewing – for optimal health – with juices, smoothies, giant salads, and a plethora of fruits and vegetables…
