Kimchi is a traditional Korean dish, which is made by fermenting cabbage, red pepper, and other vegetables. Whether or not you can find this delicious Korean preparation, making it from scratch can often mean higher quality ingredients and a deeper appreciation for the food you eat. It's full of probiotics, which we recommend getting on a daily dose in supplements and in food sources.
Doesn’t it seem like everyone is sick right now? The post-holiday work grind, combined with cold weather, has a way of seriously wearing down the immune system. While washing your hands, popping echinacea, and getting plenty of sleep are great lines of defense against germs, our preferred method of keeping the cold and flu at bay is sipping a hot bowl of soup packed with immunity-boosting mushrooms and superfoods.
We all know it’s important to eat healthy and to include a variety of foods in our diets. But just as critical as what we eat is consuming the right amounts. One way to make sure we’re getting enough of the major nutrients we need is by building a macro bowl. This macro bowl combines Middle Eastern flavors with healthy plant-based protein, and is perfect for a clean diet.
More like dessert than a banana smoothie, this decadent maintenance shake will transport your taste buds to the tropics. The star of our nutrient-packed smoothie is the most popular fruit in the U.S. and one of the most controversial – the banana. We’re peeling back the truth on bananas to reveal why we avoid them on the 21-Day Cleanse yet encourage them outside of a cleanse when maintaining our results.
Anti-inflammatory, healing, and packed with antioxidants, turmeric was the most buzzed about superfood in 2017. While we’re not giving up our daily golden milk lattes (or these turmeric chocolate energy bites) just yet, we are making room in our supplement stash, and morning smoothies, for moringa. This moringa smoothie recipe combines anti-inflammatory properties with nutritional benefits for a big impact.
Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream - it's a classic dessert that's both rich and refreshing. Unfortunately, it also typically contains excessive amounts of sugar and dairy that can both cause breakouts, bloating, and leave you feeling sluggish. We've taken the classic flavor combination to create this good-for-you alternative chocolate mint smoothie, perfect for cleansing. You'll have a hard time believing it's a healthy breakfast.
There's something seemingly intimidating about cooking dry beans. The act of rinsing, soaking, and cooking seems daunting, but in actuality, this process requires less than one minute of hands-on prep! The result of using dry beans is a more nutrient-dense dish that has a flavor that canned beans can never stand up to. These cleanse-approved instant pot black beans use pressure cooking, so they're done in a snap and will taste like they've been simmering all day.
Turmeric is one of our favorite spices to include in recipes. It’s been used for centuries in Ayurvedic medicine as an anti-inflammatory adaptogen. Turmeric is used for liver support, joint pain, arthritis, headaches, fighting any harmful invaders, and repairing any damage done to your body. Our Vanilla Daily Shake adds a great protein boost to these for an excellent post-workout snack!
Traditional eggnog is prepared just as the name would suggest, with egg yolks, plus refined sugar, cream, and rum. We've made this vegan eggnog version sans alcohol and dairy (but we won't object if you spike it when not cleansing)! Thanks to the addition of soaked cashews, you'll still get the thick, creamy texture you crave from eggnog, without the sugar crash or bloating effects of dairy. You can optionally add some Vanilla Daily Shake for a fun alternative to your regular AM smoothie!
This vegan shepherd's pie recipe is a wintertime favorite. It's comforting and satisfying. Instead of using mashed potatoes, we use a version of our vegan cauliflower mash. The sautéed garlic and thyme adds a nice rich flavor to the cauliflower. This is a great meal for preparing lunches ahead of time on the 21-Day Clean Program.
