Why eat seasonal produce? When you eat seasonal food you absorb more vital nutrients from the soil it has grown in. Locally grown food has more flavor, because it was picked when ripe. Try buying your acorn squash from a local farmers market and see if you can taste the difference. This is perfect fall food, especially if you are looking to eat less meat or meat-free!
Chocolate and cherry is a classic flavor combination. Often reserved for dessert, we decided to toss this dynamic duo in the blender for a decadent morning smoothie. Spoiler alert: there may be chocolate sauce involved.
Don't be fooled by the green color of this salted caramel pudding - it tastes as decadent and delicious as the sugar and dairy-laden versions we're all familiar with. While we love the flavor and texture of traditional salted caramel pudding, there are few benefits to the body, which is why we created this version. The coconut caramel adds the perfect flavor for a dessert you won't be able to put down. This is makes a great snack to counter those sugary cravings, even on the 21-Day Program!
The macrobiotic movement is about not so much about adhering to one specific and unchanging diet, and more about learning how different foods affect you and consciously choosing, preparing, and eating meals that fit your needs as they shift over time – similar to the philosophy of the 21-Day Clean Program.
Bundling up with a warm cup of broth is one of the most comforting and healing things you can do for your body. While bone broth has gained mainstream popularity in recent years, don't doubt the healing powers of a plant-based vegetable broth. This broth uses roasted vegetables as the base, which amplifies the flavor tremendously. You can also make large batches that stay fresh in the freezer for months.
Matcha exploded on our Instagram feeds last year, popping up in everything from lattes, to face masks, to cocktails. The madness doesn’t show signs of slowing down, either. In this vanilla almond bulletproof matcha latte, we blended the brain-boosting power of matcha with MCT oil for a warm morning drink that provides sustained energy levels and works to burn fat throughout the day.
These heavenly cinnamon spiced pear gluten-free pancakes will fill the air with deliciousness. To replace eggs in any recipe, you can simply make a flaxseed egg substitution. That’s what we used in this recipe and the pancakes came out fluffy, moist, and allergen-free. While they aren't totally cleanse-approved, we think these pancakes are a delicious healthy alternative to your fave brunch spot!
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.
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.
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.
