Have you struggled with your digestion for a long time? You are not alone. Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is the most common functional gastrointestinal (GI) disorder. According to the International Foundation of Functional Gastrointestinal Disorders, IBS affects between 25 and 45 million people in the United States, about 2/3 of which people are female. So what is IBS?
A great warm weather recipe, easy to throw together and incredibly versatile. We like to scoop it into lettuce leaves (so much better than bread on a hot summer’s day) or put it on top of mixed greens for an easy-to-pack lunch. It’s perfect for picnics too! The miso is a unique addition, giving you some digestive enzymes and important probiotics (hurrah for fermented foods!) along with a delicious flavor.
Can we have chocolate while on the Clean Program? The answer is a definite yes! Here are some chocolate fudge brownies to prove it. Free of flour, dairy, refined sugar, these are entirely cleanse-friendly. We feel like we’re indulging in a decadent treat, almost without noticing that we’re being packed with protein and healthy fats. There’s nothing to feel guilty about.
This chicken and spinach dish made anything but ordinary with an unexpected ingredient. We find this dish to be a nutritionally-rich and incredibly delicious meal. It works as lunch for anyone on the 21-Day Clean Program, and it’s a great healthy recipe for any other time.
This is a wonderful variation to your every-day chicken salad. The added lavender makes the chicken salad a summery delight for your taste buds!

One of the most common issues our clients reveal to us is this: “I have a sugar addiction.” Why is it so challenging to curb our sugar-use? The answer may be found by taking a closer look at our biology.
Perfect for spring gatherings and quick meal needs, this salmon stir fry is a great recipe to keep on hand. The fresh snap of ginger gives this dish an amazing flavor.

Missing peanut butter or chocolate chips? Love almond butter?

If we’re on the Clean Program or are sensitive to peanut butter, the almond butter is the perfect substitution. Everyone who’s tried these loves the flavor! You can even serve them with coconut ice cream as an ice cream sandwich.
We often see coffee shops on every corner, a steady stream of people in and out, and more walking and sitting just about everywhere you go with cups of coffee. Coffee talk is a connector, we gather over steaming cups and for some, it’s a nice morning ritual. While this is true, it’s also true that it is incredibly stimulating and addictive and when doing a 21-Day Clean Program detox or trying to bring your body back into balance and optimal health, we think coffee deserves a second look.
Fish tacos give non-vegetarians the opportunity to enjoy tacos without having to eat the red meat with which it often comes. We don’t miss out on getting adequate protein with this recipe. The fish taco filling also gives us vitamin D and healthy fats like omega-3s.
