Cleanse: Day 12

Detox symptoms. Do you have them? No headaches this time around, but for whatever reason, I usually get a bit of a cold right about halfway through. It feels like my body giving me a giant sign that says SLOW DOWN. I hear you, body, I hear you. Today is the second day of skipping the gym and sleeping in, because my body says so.

Smoothie: A friend told me that dino kale, also known as lacinato kale, gets its name from its scaly appearance. Whether it’s true or not, I got some and now I’m putting it in everything.

Apple and Kale Smoothie
makes 2 servings
1 cup coconut water
4 scoops SP Complete (Dairy-Free)
2 scoops Whole Food Fiber
1 ripe banana
8 pieces of kale, removed from stem
1 granny smith apple
1 tsp lemon juice
1 cup water

Combine and blend until smooth. (It took me a while.) Enjoy!

Lunch: Technically, beans are not on the list of foods to eat. I try to only eat things on the given list, but every once in a while I’ll make an exception when I know it’s something that doesn’t bother me. So far I’ve been keeping these exceptions to a minimum.

Cleanse: Day 11

I’ve learned from the cleanse that a meal can be just as satisfying without meat. Having a variety of tastes and textures in every meal keeps my tastebuds happy, and I feel good about what I’m putting in my body. That said, I’m going to be adding protein back in moderation. Hurray on making it halfway!

Smoothie: I’m not a fan of salads for breakfast, but apparently they’re really tasty blended up. After my first mishap, I’ve been pretty reluctant to give it another try. I’m so glad I did!

Cleanse: Day 10

Breakfast: I woke up to this! Yum.

morning glory porridge

This recipe is from Jennifer Goren at the Patty Gelman Culinary Arts Center.

Morning Glory Porridge
makes 1 serving
1 cup almond, rice or coconut milk
1 cup quinoa flakes
pinch of salt
banana
goji berries
fresh blueberries
fresh raspberries
fresh strawberries, sliced
1-2 tbsp chia seeds or milled flax seeds
sliced almonds
cinnamon to taste
grade B maple syrup to taste
vanilla

Add quinoa and salt to rapidly boiling almond milk.
Add banana, goji berries, chia seeds and vanilla.
Return to boil and cook for 90 seconds, stirring frequently.
Remove from heat and allow to cool.
Sweeten with maple syrup and serve with fruit, almonds and cinnamon.

Note: When I make this, I use water or rice milk, omit the chia seeds, and use whatever fruit I have on hand, fresh or frozen. Usually it’s sweet enough to not need maple syrup.

Smoothie: So far, I’ve been making a different smoothie every day. Some have been really good, others not so much.

avocado mint smoothie

Lunch: Jivamuktea Cafe has these “Little Bites” that are just small enough for a light snack before class. I got out of bed at noon today, so I wasn’t too hungry by the time class started but I needed something to tide me over.

Exercise: Yoga, 95 minutes; handstand workshop, 1 hour

Dinner: Korean food!

Cleanse: Day 1

Hi, I’m Janet, aspiring chiropractor and food aficionado. You may know me from the front desk. I started the cleanse-worthy today and I’ll be posting updates of my edible adventures.

This will be my third time doing the cleanse. I’ve since learned that a little preparation goes a long way. This time, I’ve stocked up on fruits, veggies and recipes in case I ever go hungry or run out of ideas.

Breakfast:

I had this smoothie every day the first time I did the cleanse because I liked it so much. I have a whole list of smoothies to try out so I don’t resort to that again..

Day 1: Smoothie

strawberry banana smoothie with lemon and super EFA liquid.

 

Exercise: Running, 30 minutes.

Lunch: Our SP rep gave us the ok for quinoa. I prefer it to brown rice.

Day 1: Lunch

glorified leftovers – broccoli avocado quinoa salad w/ California raisins and beet salad over baby arugula.

Dinner: It’s Friday! Dinner at Cafe Mogador in the East Village.

Let’s Do the Cleanse!

Look and Feel Amazing!  

We know you want to!

It’s that time of the year again…

Right after summer, before the holidays and at the change of the season!

That’s right…. it is time for the Standard Process Purification Program.

Many, many people have done the 21 day program with us over the last five years and have had fantastic results. While that option is of course available for those who want it, Standard Process is now also offering a 10 day option!!!

Live your life in high resolution with the

Standard Process Purification Program

Are you hungry for good health? Experience the benefits of helping your body cleanse with the Standard Process Purification Program. The purification program combines a generous menu of whole foods with supplements that support the body’s ability to remove naturally occurring toxins. This promotes a state that allows for toxin release.

 

Much More Than a Cleanse Diet

The Standard Process Purification Program is not strictly a cleanse diet but rather a structured program that combines whole food eating with supplements, nutritious supplement shakes, and light exercise. The menu includes an abundance of fresh vegetables and fruit. Select proteins are added after the first few days. 

Check out the guide here :  Standard Process Purificaton Guide

Check out the last time we did the cleanse in the office for menu suggestions.  Sample Menu

So call the office at 212.226.6320 or email us at [email protected] or reply to this email to order a kit!

We plan to start as a group on October 1st so that it is easy to keep track of what day you are on but of course you can start whenever you want!

What You Do Today Creates Your Tomorrow!
