Adventure Cleanse: Basic rules

The basic rules for the CSD (crazy sexy diet) Adventure Cleanse are easy-peasy. Really, you are stronger than you think you are. And it's only for 21 days...not very long in the grand scheme of your life. But doing something like this could actually change your life for the better, so say yes!!

You'll be saying yes to:

-green juices

-green smoothies

-lots of fresh vegetables (some cooked, most raw)

-low glycemic fruit

-legumes, nuts, seeds

-whole grains (gluten free)

-healthy oils

-eating 60/40 or 80/20 raw (or lightly steamed/sauteed) to cooked ratio

-lots of water

-green, white and herbal teas

-agave and stevia in small amounts

-exercise. In whatever form you like, as long as it gets your heart rate up a bit and you get 35 minutes of it a day, 5 days a week.

-meditation/prayer. Working up to 15 minutes a day

-dry skin brushing

-certain supplements, if you choose.

You'll be saying no to:

-eggs, dairy and meat of any kind (yes this includes fish too)


-processed foods, refined carbs

-refined sugar



-artificial sweeteners, flavourings and chemicals

-sitting on your behind day after day letting life pass you by

-looking and feeling older than your years

My intentions for 2012 are simple

1. Be well

2. Find my center

3. Say yes

I hope some of you choose to join me on the journey!
With love and gratitude

  1. How's it going with the cleanse?? I am loving it!
    Also blogging through it...

    Think I will adopt a lot of the ideas after the cleanse also, like the lemon and green juice/smoothies prior to noon.
