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.
Many people are most familiar with the more common grocery kefir made from dairy. While its benefits to the digestive system are countless, we prefer to have our kefir in a dairy-free form. This version is refreshing, nutrient-dense, and hydrating, making it the perfect version to sip on all summer long. This is a cleansing drink that can be a great complement to the 21-Day Program, as can other fermented foods.
Adaptogens have long been used in eastern medicine, and we are finally seeing the popularization in western cultures as well. The belief is that adaptogens can help strengthen our ability to handle both physical and mental stressors. Adaptogenic plants are one way to help fight chronic stress and prevent the correlating symptoms, and we’ve chosen a reishi adaptogen for this delicious, chocolatey drink.
As the weather warms up, we’re looking forward to transitioning from hot drinks to iced. Instead of reaching for a coffee, consider swapping your daily habit for an energizing alternative that’s loaded with additional health benefits – Yerba Mate. It’s also cleanse-approved, so there’s no reason not to try it!
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.
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 probioticsand probiotic beverages are definitely here to stay, it may be time to make the jump.
For many people, the ritual of a hot cup of coffee is the only thing that gets them out of bed in the morning. While coffee may have some benefits, it also can have detrimental side effects like acidity, dehydration, and potential to cause anxiety. We recognize the power of a warm, comforting mug in the morning, so we’ve created this immunity-boosting matcha latte to get you going without the negative side effects. It’s also a wonderful healthy beverage to drink while participating in the 21-Day Clean Program, so stir it up and go!
We might be melting in the city streets, but an icy Hibiscus Fresca is an antioxidant-loaded treat we can enjoy every day on the 21-Day Clean Program and during maintenance. We love the flowery refreshing taste of this chill beverage.
It’s true, healthy alcoholic drinks do exist and we are here to give you the information you need to celebrate and stay balanced this holiday. We eliminate alcohol on the Clean Program (even in the form of healthy alcoholic drinks) and we recommend only having alcohol sparingly after your cleanse, but that doesn’t mean you must avoid it all together. Life is about balance and the key to enjoying a healthy alcoholic drink is using the right type of alcohol and mixer, like this cranberry rosemary cocktail.
Our healthy hot chocolate is a fresh take on a seasonal favorite that will help you cozy up this winter without serving your friends and family processed cocoa with an unhealthy amount of added sugar. Healthy hot chocolate differs from the conventional version because it uses real antioxidant-rich chocolate as its base rather than traditional processed mixes that contain added sugars.
