Lavender isn't just the relaxing scent of your favorite essential oil. You can find culinary grade lavender in most spice sections, and it will add a unique flavor and scent to any dish. We've chosen shortbread cookies as the perfect host for lavender. The simple flavor and texture allow the lavender's subtle taste to shine. These are great on a maintenance diet or on the cleanse with some easy substitutions.
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.
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!
These chewy, perfectly spiced cookies are a classic around the holidays. We've recreated the traditional recipe for a gingerbread recipe that is both delicious and 21-Day Clean Program approved!

Pumpkin pie is a classic fall dessert, and these simple, healthy pumpkin bars will please any home chef. The crust is made from almonds, but still has the buttery, flaky appeal of any good pie.

The best part? It's approved for the 21-Day Clean Program!
Be honest; how many times have you licked the bowl after popping a batch of chocolate chip cookies in the oven? Nearly all of us are guilty of stealing a spoonful of raw cookie dough even though we know we shouldn't. While the taste and texture are identical to chocolate chip cookie dough you would buy in a tub or a tube, this is a healthy alternative! It's vegan, gluten-free, and can easily be made to fit the cleanse diet or just for every day clean eating.
With Halloween just around the corner, every store is filling up with candy. Since most of these choices are made with processed sugar, vegetable oil, and poor quality dairy, we've opted for a homemade version of healthy Halloween candy. Plus it makes a great treat if you are maintaining the effects of a cleanse. This is a great option to offer kids (of all ages) at home Halloween parties!
