Who’s been on a cleanse? C’mon, hands up…I’m sure a few of you reading this are reading this SPECIFICALLY because you are currently ON a cleanse, or are considering it.
First off, there are a helluvalot of cleanses out there. Feel free to pick your poison, but know what your desired outcome is. Weight loss? Allergy testing? System reset? It’s very important you know WHY you are cleansing and exactly how much time this will take.
I’m currently hosting (and participating in) an Elimination Cleanse. This is for all of my clientele who currently suffer from a food allergy, or a combination of food allergies, and want to get to the bottom of what those are, to end their suffering.
The cleanse I run is a month long, and as far as fasting/juicing/cleansing goes, it’s pretty fair. That is, if you were already a vegan…..(enter maniacal laugh here). The pros? You get to change it up every 7 days. The cons? You need to pay attention to your body, your emotions and your appetite. I recommend journaling during this process to ALL my clients. So that I can review their meals and their state of mind to ensure that we are getting to the root of their allergy.
While on this cleanse I decided that I was up for dessert, and abiding by all regs, this is what I came up with:
3 med sized apples peeled & sliced
1 peach sliced or 1.5 cups of frozen, organic peach slices
1 tbsp coconut oil (aromatic variety)
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp vanilla bean powder
Heat oil in skillet over medium heat on oven. In separate bowl mix ingredients. Once mixed thoroughly, add to oil and cook over med/low heat until heated throughout.
Serve hot & top with chopped mint leaves if desired.
** Add honey, bananas or agave nectar to sweeten if you are not cleansing!
