The days following the cleanse are equally as important as the days prior. Your body has just transformed at the cellular level, and you need to continue to eat simple and enjoy natural, wholesome, fresh, and organic foods. Follow the same guidelines as the days prior to your cleanse. We recommend fresh fruit for breakfast, simple whole grains and salads with snacks of raw veggies throughout the day.
Days 1 & 2:
Low density foods, high in water content will be most comfortable for your body.
— Fruits such as melon, papaya, or citrus
— Vegetables such as cucumber, celery
— Low sodium vegetable broth
— Herbal or green tea
Start introducing more fibrous foods back into your day.
— Softer fruits
— Raw or steamed non-starchy vegetables: tomatoes, bell peppers, leafy greens
— Mixed greens salad with non-starchy toppings, dressed with lemon juice or apple cider vinegar
You should be ready to have some heavier meals again.
— Lightly cooked starchy vegetables: broccoli, squash, sweet potatoes, yams
— Whole grains: quinoa, brown rice, barley
— Lighter proteins: steamed fish, boiled eggs
As you slowly start integrating food groups back into your diet, notice how different items make you feel. Is gluten or dairy particularly difficult? You may find yourself no longer craving fatty foods or sugary items. The cleanse is not set up to limit yourself, but allow for more space to listen to your body. The more we understand about our bodies the better we will be able to fuel them and provide them the nourishment they need, and avoid the things they don’t. Congratulations, you did it!
