Being healthy means eating healthy and sometimes it’s not very easy to do during the holidays. And with the hype surrounded by holiday meals, who can resist temptation? That’s why the VeganSmart team is sharing this 7- day cleanse to restart your system in the new year.
Days 1 – 3:
- Start omitting all the animal flesh from your diet.
- VeganSmart smoothies 1 to 2 times a day, as a supplement to help keep your energy up.
- Drink coconut water as often as you like.
- Drink fresh green vegetable juices on an empty stomach as often as you like. (Aim for at least two or three times a day, but make sure it’s on an empty stomach.)
- Drinking green juice first thing in the morning ensures your stomach is empty and is recommended.
- To curb the appetite, sip on Lemon Blast all day. (Recipe below)
- Optional versions of the VeganSmart smoothies are offered below as well.
- Eliminate all alcohol, dairy products, breads and pastries, red meats and chicken from your diet.
- Only vegetables, non-refined carbohydrates, nuts, seeds and flax seeds or olive oil during the first three days.
