My month-long cleanse

After several tests and an ultrasound, it was pretty apparent my docs couldn’t give me what I wanted: Answers. Solutions. Causes. Nothing. It was frustrating, to say the least.

So I did what any smart girl would do and headed straight for my physical therapist friend, Tina, who gave me some holistic treatment and set me up with a month-long cleanse supported by key supplements. By nature, the cleanse is pretty similar to the paleo diet. Mostly fruits and veggies, plus grilled chicken, turkey, and fish. No grains, no dairy, no red meat or pork. No sugar, alcohol, or caffeine.

Easy dinner. Grilled chicken, parsnip puree with coconut milk, Brussels.

So far — on day three — I’m loving it. It’s so easy and so satisfying. I mean, I’m shocked that I don’t get hungry in between meals. That has never been my MO; I’m a perpetual snacker. And a sweet tooth. But I’m also a huge fan of fruits and veggies. I love them all! LOVE.

I have one month of this business ahead of me. I’ll try to share recipes and meal photos to encourage you in your own meal planning. I know it can be tough, especially when you’re restricted by a cleanse or diet. But it’s pretty easy if you just take a little time to plan ahead.

  1. I’m sure Tina told you the importance of staying well hydrated. Coffee, tea, alcohol are all diuretics that can deplete the system of needed fluids and stress the organs.
