So, we’re in the second week of the all raw cleanse including 2 very green smoothies a day (a full pound of greens total) and a large cruciferous vegetable salad with a whole avocado. It’s been easy to stay with and am feeling strong energy. Haven’t had much, if any detox, and notice my clothes are looser.
Here’s a video of how we make one of our versions of the big salad that is usually lunch. It is a great salad.
Last week’s blog explained how to make the smoothies. And in addition to the salad we shared, we’re drinking lots of purified water to flush out toxins. This cleanse encourages a gallon of water each day. You can also count the water in your smoothies as part of that gallon.
Give this cleanse a try if you feel inspired.
To Your Amazing Health,
Connie and Bill
