Kale is without a doubt one of the most popular superfoods available. Kale is much denser than other leafy greens, making it hard for some to digest in its raw form. While sauteeing is the most common form of cooking kale, we absolutely love turning ours into crispy, flavorful chips. Kale's texture makes it perfect for creating crunchy chips that don't fall apart. You'll find yourself reaching for this cheesy, perfectly spiced version again and again.
If you’re a proud owner of a rubber tree, monstera, or fiddle leaf fig, you know indoor plants can instantly beautify your living space. In addition to being pretty to look at, houseplants also extend some incredible health benefits to the people who care for them.
Our taste buds are starting to move from the hydrating fruits and vegetables we chose all summer, to the comforting and warming dishes of fall and winter. Fortunately, comfort foods can still be healthy. This Thai coconut soup is filled with nutrient-dense vegetables. Because this recipe contains lots of peppers and spices it makes a great post-cleanse soup, but it can be modified to enjoy on the 21-Day program as well.
Gua Sha is a Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) practice which uses a flat, handheld tool, often made of jade or rose quartz, to apply pressure while scraping the skin in order to relieve muscle tension and promote healing. The ancient technique is purported to break down scar tissue, reduce inflammation, flush fresh blood flow to the skin and muscles, relieve pain, and improve joint flexibility. When used as a facial technique, gua sha may help even out skin tone, reduce puffiness via lymphatic drainage, clear up acne and rosacea, and even reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
We normally associate chai as a comforting, hot drink, perfect for colder months. We’ve transformed the warm cup of tea you love into a creamy, flavorful smoothie that's great year-round. With the addition of our Vanilla Daily Shake, not only does this smoothie get a boost of sweet flavor, but it transforms into a complete meal. Our protein powder is full of nutrients, plus it’s vegan and gluten-free. Getting adequate protein in every meal is an important tool for hormone production, blood sugar stabilization, and satiety.

Intermittent fasting is about way more than weight loss. You may have heard the term in alternative wellness circles, but what does it really mean, and, most important: is it healthy? As it turns out, studies show that intermittent fasting has some great health benefits for most people, and while it may not be for everyone, it can be a healthy thing when done right.
Summer fruit is the perfect choice for crumbles and cobblers alike. We've picked peaches and blueberries at their peak for this recipe. With the fruit in its prime, we didn't need much sweetener to bring this dish to perfection, just whole, cleanse-approved ingredients. Try swapping out the fruit with a new seasonal pick each time you make it, and it's sure to be a regular in your dessert (or breakfast) rotation year-round.

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.
