We all need to hit the reset button and this is the perfect time of year to do it.
I did a juice cleanse a couple of years ago (wasn't the best experience) and told myself that I would only do another one if I could chew my raw fruit and vegetables, too.
If you're interested in transitioning to a vegan lifestyle, I think doing a raw vegan cleanse/detox is a great way to reset your palate.
Some of the people I've interviewed on my podcast started their vegan journey this way.
They start off by doing a 7-30 day challenge of raw vegan meals, smoothies and/or juice and then transition to a healthy vegan lifestyle of both raw and cooked meals.
Since I still have to cook for the kids (Eric is joining me - Woo hoo!), I will keep our raw meals super simple during this challenge. We will probably eat mono meals, drink smoothies and eat basic salads with lots of raw greens the whole time.
GUIDELINES FOR THE 7-DAY RAW FOOD CHALLENGE:
- No meat, dairy, wheat, eggs, processed sugar or alcohol
- Eat plenty of fresh fruit, raw vegetables and drink fresh juice & smoothies
- Drink lots of water
- You can also drink warm tea and warm water with lemon
- Be super gentle with yourself and share your experiences on the Facebook page
I put together a quick video about the challenge here...
