Have you ever gotten an acupuncture treatment? Are you familiar with the Yin-Yang symbol? These are both components of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is one of the oldest systems of medicine in history, with recorded instances dating more than 2,000 years back. TCM is a multi-faceted and detailed ancient healing medicine that is a component of functional medicine and a whole healthy lifestyle.
We love using cauliflower rice to substitute rice or wheat in clean recipes. It’s so simple to blend, cook, and use in a variety of recipes. Grains are actually difficult for many people to digest, and you may notice indigestion or bloat after eating starchy grains like rice. Using cauliflower rice instead will help you to avoid this discomfort as well as lower your carb intake.
Travel and vacation time is exciting and fun, and it’s important to take breaks from the daily grind, get away, and relax. But long flights, airport food, and a disruption in your daily routine can throw off your digestive health. Especially if you suffer from IBS, or other digestive disorders like celiac disease, taking preventative measures to keep your gut healthy while traveling is key.
Cantaloupe has an unfair reputation as a fruit salad filler, it’s the melon we push around on our plates, preferring to stick our forks in blueberries and kiwi. Instead of casting cantaloupe off to the side, we gave it the starring role in a refreshing summer smoothie. Naturally sweet and ultra-hydrating, we’re going to be sipping this cantaloupe smoothie all season long.
Leafy greens are some of the most nourishing and healing foods for our bodies. From green drinks to juices and smoothies, leafy greens and green vegetables are powerful and inexpensive sources of major nutrition: they are rich in magnesium, iron, calcium, vitamin K, vitamin C, fiber, folic acid, and potassium, as well as an array of phytochemicals such as beta-carotene, zeaxanthin, cryptoxanthin, and lutein. Greens contain almost every nutrient we require for optimal health.
Typically creamy pasta is laden with dairy and often leaves us feeling heavy, bloated, and sluggish. This dish gives you the creaminess your taste buds desire while using zero dairy and the flavors of summer to keep things fresh. The combination of garlic, cashews, and lemon give the sauce a rich texture and flavor, while the summer vegetables and herbs add the lightness you're craving in hotter months. This will be a recipe you use year-round to please any crowd. Try it when having cravings on the Cleanse!
Whether you are undergoing your first 21-Day Cleanse, or are maintaining your clean and wellness-centered lifestyle between cleanses, healing modalities which promote our well-being holistically, like Reiki, are an invaluable resource. We recommend doing some form of bodywork to supplement your cleanse, be it massage, acupuncture, cryotherapy, dry-brushing, or Reiki, as it will help maximize your results. However, all can be used to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
These mini key lime pie desserts are much simpler to make than a traditional key lime pie but bursting with just as much flavor. They're also vegan, gluten-free, and Clean Program-approved so these petite desserts can be enjoyed any time.
Yoga is catching the world by storm. We know that yoga can help us sleep better, live happier, reduce stress, eliminate toxins and loosen up those tightly wound muscles. Clearly, there is no doubt that yoga deserves a consistent spot in our weekly wellness routine, but can we also count it as a full-body workout?
One of our favorite summertime treats is shaved ice. The juicy flavor, combined with a melt-in-your-mouth texture, is the best way to cool down on a hot day. Unfortunately, most of the shaved ice we can buy from a street vendor is drenched in a syrupy flavor concentrate. In fact, an 8-oz. cup of shaved ice contains a whopping 49 grams of sugar – more than a 12-oz. can of Coke! Luckily, it’s simple to make your own shaved ice at home with natural ingredients.
