This vegan shepherd's pie recipe is a wintertime favorite. It's comforting and satisfying. Instead of using mashed potatoes, we use a version of our vegan cauliflower mash. The sautéed garlic and thyme adds a nice rich flavor to the cauliflower. This is a great meal for preparing lunches ahead of time on the 21-Day Clean Program.
One of the most significant changes people make as they progress throughout the Clean Program is to drop the refined and overly-processed sugars from their diet. This is one of the most powerful ways we know of to transform your health for the better. Giving up sweets totally in our diets is daunting for many of us, and it is also unnecessary. With a few strategic substitutions, you can still enjoy your sweet treats in moderation.

We know that balance is good for our health. Equally important as finding work-life equilibrium is fueling our bodies with the proper ratio of nutrients to balance our blood sugar.

They weren’t wrong about that, but what sugar does to the rest of our bodies is a lot scarier, which is why we don't have refined sugars on the Cleanse Diet.
High-quality protein is crucial for hormone balance, weight management, and maintaining steady blood sugar.

There’s no getting around it – our bodies change as we approach middle age. Along with the appearance of grey hair and laugh lines, our metabolism begins to slow down as early as our late twenties. This shift tends to begin around the same time we settle into our careers and start families, leaving little time for healthy meal prep and exercise.

You’re going along your life normally, doing your day-to-day activities, feeling like things are routine. Then suddenly you put on your favorite pair of jeans and it takes a little more wiggle to get them on, and it takes a little more sucking in the gut to keep them on. Detoxification is a big part of the 21-Day Clean Program because of how important it is for balancing weight, and here are some of the causes of unexplained weight gain.
