I’ve been curious about different cleanses for a couple of years, but I haven’t known where to start- until the internet delivered a little Christmas present into my lap that I get to share (in a real way) with you! This January I was contacted by the ladies behind The Conscious Cleanse, and asked if I wanted to participate in exchange for a review & a discount for any interested readers.
It seemed like a perfect way to start the new year, and something you all might be curious about too!
I’ve heard about cleansing to get rid of toxins in your body, but one of the things that I didn’t realize is that while it’s great to give your body a break by eating gentler foods, that process helps boost your body’s ability to absorb nutrients from the great food you’re putting so much of your pay cheque toward every week. I know, it’s really practical, but the idea that I was spending so much time & effort on making good choices and I might not be getting the full benefit of them was a huge motivator for me.
The other big benefit of a cleanse is that it can help you re-set your taste buds, figure out what your trigger foods are (foods you might be craving emotionally or be addicted to), and pinpoint food sensitivities that you aren’t aware of.
The Conscious Cleanse goes further in that you have an actual handbook including a day by day guide with daily journaling prompts, a focus for your intention, along with insight into how you’ll be feeling and what a new ingredient to try out could be. If you buy the more in depth cleanse program you also get access to coaching calls, tips, support, shopping lists and recipe resources. It was honestly such a wonderful experience! I miss those darn journaling prompts, they became a highlight of my morning.
