If you're anything like I was a month ago; the word cleanse brings up images of angry, food deprived people. Maybe they get smoothies, soup, or 1 strange food (cabbage comes to mind)but that's about it. Cleanses honestly scared the crap out of me. Apparently my boyfriend too. You should have seen his face when I told him I was going on one for 15 DAYS!!! He said, "If you turn into a crazy b*tch I will make you eat!!!"
Here's what I learned. Not all cleanses are the same and they don't have to be hard. The one I did was a raw food cleanse. It has smoothies, salads, soups, cooked & raw meals, snacks, and desserts. The recipes are so good I will make them on a regular basis. Let me say, I have not been hungry at all. In fact it's more than I normally eat. I'm happy, I feel great, and I sleep better. My boyfriend even wants to do the next one with me!!
I also learned that like everything that's worthwhile, there is an investment. We are not horrible eaters, but I had to buy some staples and ofcourse the fresh vegtables. There's also a time investment. I did a lot of prep work so I had snacks and smoothies ready for the day. I can be lazy, so I love that with a little prep I have grab-n-go snacks and meals. Overall it was really worth it and it's probably changed the way we eat from now on. Even if we opt for a quick frozen pizza, we can add one of the cleanse recipes and be kinda healthy.
