6 Day Mini Cleanse


A Mini-Cleanse For The Next 6 Days

You know what to eat. We all know what to eat. But sometimes, we get a little distracted, a little bored, a little emotional, a little rebellious... and a little food-fatigued. Sometimes, we just want someone to tell us what to eat.

Lucky for you, I love to share. This three-day menu is from a 6-week cleanse program I run three times per year. 

It's food-based and jam-packed with phytonutrients, amino acids, Omega 3's and other nutrients that just make you feel good! If that's not enough to motivate you, two thirds of the group consistently loses 8 pounds in the first week. (And they keep it off!)

Follow the plan for three days, then repeat.

Breakfast: Green smoothie made with regular lean or vegan protein powder, unsweetened almond milk, frozen berries, greens, bee pollen, cinnamon and ice
