We’ve all been there, right? Pants get a little tight, tummy starts to turn, confidence and comfort drop, and brain fog begins to set in. Here comes the bloat and the gas, and it’s no fun. This feeling of discomfort can totally ruin your day. Digestive enzymes can really help us, especially after a big meal or restaurant food, but there are many simple changes we can make today to set ourselves up for regular digestive success.
Many of us have come to expect a comforting cup of coffee each morning. It's a habit that may lure us out of bed with the promise of instant energy but can result in a crash later in the day. During your 21-Day Cleanse you may experience coffee withdrawal initially, but after the first week, you'll likely notice a new, consistent energy from morning to night. Giving up coffee doesn't have to mean giving up a tasty morning drink. We've created this iced turmeric latte, perfect for any time of the day.
By now you have probably heard of it. You’ve made a golden milk latte, added turmeric to your Daily Shake, or maybe even spotted it in your newest face mask. What is turmeric and why is it in every health product made these days? Turmeric benefits are comprehensive, and most are due to its active compound, curcumin.
Yogurt is commonly named when talking about probiotic foods. We've been told it improves digestion, immunity, and even mental health to eat fermented foods and take probiotics, but for some of us the dairy in regular yogurt can be an issue.
Especially while cleansing, avoiding dairy is important, and post-cleanse you might choose to limit or eliminate dairy for good. Fortunately, that doesn't mean you need to give up yogurt! We've created this simple vegan coconut yogurt recipe for our yogurt lovers, so you can enjoy it on and off the cleanse.
We hope you’re ready for a new dessert staple because this recipe checks all the boxes. It’s nourishing, naturally sweetened, flavorful, and did we mention it has carrots in it!? This recipe makes 10 carrot muffins in total but it's super convenient to freeze these to have on hand. This gluten-free, dairy-free, sugar-free recipe is totally 21-Day Cleanse-approved.
Have you ever had a cold brew, only to feel like your nervous system is pumping the brakes, you have the shakes, and wind up with a "cold brew hangover"? Fortunately, we have been seeing a shift to pretty green smoothies, and iced matcha lattes – and we love it. Not only are green drinks gorgeous subjects for Instagram photos, they’re ideal for curbing hunger between meals and giving you a boost of healthy and sustainable energy to stay focused throughout the day. We also love to add a scoop of our Greens superfood powder to our smoothies.
Somewhere in between the matcha, yerba mate and green tea trends there is kombucha. Perhaps you've spent years hearing about the health benefits — and passing the growing section of the refrigerator in the local natural grocery store — but something about the phrase “fermented yeast and bacteria” isn’t exactly a selling point for some people in a beverage. However, as probiotics and probiotic beverages are definitely here to stay, it may be time to make the jump.
We’ve all had those days when we throw on layer after layer of deodorant without even batting an eye because we are really sweating it out. But have you ever stopped to think what is actually in those magic little sticks? Going on the 21-Day Clean Program helps us find the best and most nutritious whole foods for our bodies, but also helps us realize that what we put on our bodies matters as well.

We love meal prep ideas here at Clean because one of the hurdles to healthy eating we hear most often is that being busy or under-prepared can derail healthy choices, especially meals on the 21-Day Clean Program. With proper meal prep ideas, you'll always have easy meals on hand, so no matter how short on time you are, wholesome food is ready to go. We've put together our best tips for food prep, and even laid out a sample week of food prep to show you exactly how it looks.
