We have a deep love of Asian food. Such flavors as ginger, sesame oil, and rice vinegar really please the palate. Served with crunchy cashews over a bed of brown rice, our General Tso’s Cauliflower is a delicious, nutrient-dense take on the traditional dish that is suitable for scratching your take-out itch while on the Clean Program cleanse.
It's easy to get your greens when they're hidden in a flavorful, comforting bowl of pasta. We've paired chickpea pasta with a nutty, homemade pesto and filled it with good for you veggies like arugula and peas. This is the perfect dish to make ahead of time, and it can be enjoyed hot or cold.
We love this wild rice bowl as a warm, cozy dinner, or prepared ahead of time as a nutrient-dense work lunch. The sweet, balsamic roasted sweet potatoes are perfectly balanced by the bright, citrusy kale, and rounded out with the nutty, warm wild rice. We suggest making a big batch - this dish will disappear quickly!
Boasting ingredients like spirulina, matcha, and cacao, this superfood pie has the nutrient density of a big, leafy green salad. This dessert is rich in flavor but free of dairy, gluten, and processed sugar. It's simple to make, so you'll likely find yourself repeating this recipe all year long. Use this recipe when trying to make healthier holiday swaps!
Loaded sweet potatoes sound like the ultimate, indulgent comfort food. Usually piled high with ingredients like sour cream, bacon, and cheese, they may taste good, but it's better for our health to have a clean version. We've chosen sweet potatoes as the base for this vegan version, and with spice-rich veggies, heart-healthy oil, and garlic you'll get just as much flavor without the food coma.
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!
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!
Cantaloupe has an unfair reputation as a fruit salad filler, it’s the melon we push around on our plates, preferring to stick our forks in blueberries and kiwi. Instead of casting cantaloupe off to the side, we gave it the starring role in a refreshing summer smoothie. Naturally sweet and ultra-hydrating, we’re going to be sipping this cantaloupe smoothie all season long.
Typically creamy pasta is laden with dairy and often leaves us feeling heavy, bloated, and sluggish. This dish gives you the creaminess your taste buds desire while using zero dairy and the flavors of summer to keep things fresh. The combination of garlic, cashews, and lemon give the sauce a rich texture and flavor, while the summer vegetables and herbs add the lightness you're craving in hotter months. This will be a recipe you use year-round to please any crowd. Try it when having cravings on the Cleanse!
This healthy burrito bowl recipe is a cleaner version of the typical bowl you would get at Chipotle. Although Chipotle uses fresher ingredients than other fast food chains, it’s not necessarily the healthiest option. One reason is that their portions are absolutely massive! We all love a mound of guacamole on top of our bowls, but large portions can equal an unnecessary amount of calories. With one simple swap, this recipe makes a great lunch on the Cleanse.
