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.
We hope you’re ready for a new dessert staple because this recipe checks all the boxes. It’s nourishing, naturally sweetened, flavorful, and did we mention it has carrots in it!? This recipe makes 10 carrot muffins in total but it's super convenient to freeze these to have on hand. This gluten-free, dairy-free, sugar-free recipe is totally 21-Day Cleanse-approved.
Have you ever tried this Korean dish called Bibimbap before? After finishing up a 21-Day Clean Program, we're celebrating with a healthy dose of this delicious post-cleanse dish. Nightshades are not allowed on the cleanse, but we love adding spice when we are not cleansing, especially when it involves a ton of veggies!
This is one of my favorite recipes to make in the summertime. Zucchini noodles are super quick to make and only take a few ingredients. It's a great option when coming off a 21-Day Clean Program, or even on the cleanse if you eliminate the tomatoes (which are a nightshade).
We love artichoke dip for its creamy texture and rich flavors, but artichoke dip typically doesn’t qualify as Clean Eats as it normally contains heavy difficult-to-digest ingredients like cheese and mayonnaise.
It wouldn't be October without a warming seasonal squash recipe to cozy up with. This curry can be your holiday secret weapon. The dietary fibers in the squash and chickpeas help increase satiety, reduce appetite, and aid in weight management. And the medicinal spices warm the body as temperatures drop. Keep this dish on hand as those tempting Halloween and seasonal treats start to trickle in.
Stay cool and refreshed by making this cold watermelon gazpacho. Watermelon quenches our thirst and provides a wide array of vitamins and minerals, including a super high amount of lycopene. This soup would travel well in a chilled thermos, perfect for picnicing. Because it contains tomato, we recommend enjoying post-cleanse once you know if you are sensitive to tomatoes.
Buckwheat noodles are a Clean Program favorite. Buckwheat is both gluten-free and grain-free but doesn't lack in flavor. The noodles are packed with protein and healthy fats. Bring this dish along for a pool-side or picnic snack to provide clean, lasting energy.
