The summertime usually means lots of beer, fried foods, cheesy dips, and hot wings doused in ranch dressing. Since we love celebrating with friends and delicious food, we love coming up with wholesome versions of the classics.

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 is a cleansing drink that can be a great complement to the 21-Day Program, as can other fermented foods.

You'll love the taste of this Thai fish recipe. We've served it over brown rice to give you a balanced and meal, as the brown rice will soak up the rich, coconut sauce and you'll experience a burst of flavor with each bite.

Smoothies are a staple on the Clean Program cleanse, and a habit we recommend keeping well beyond your 21-day program with a morning Daily Shake.

With warmer days, we love this pineapple cilantro smoothie for its tropical flavor and detoxifying qualities.
