A 3-Day summer cleanse can be way to refresh and rejuvenate your body during the warmer months. While it’s important to consult with a health care professional before starting any cleanse or diet changes. Here is a general outline:
Day 1: Fruits and Raw Vegetables
- Start your day with 1 quart of warm water with lemon to kickstart your metabolism and aid digestion.
- Throughout the day consume a variety of fresh fruits and raw vegetables. These can include watermelon, berries, cucumbers, leafy greens, bell peppers and more.
- Opt for lighter meals and snacks, focusing on whole, unprocessed foods. You can have salads, fruits bowls, vegetable wraps and smoothies.
- Stay hydrated by drinking 1 gallon of pure water, infused with fruits or herbs if desired.
Day 2: Juices and Smoothies
- Begin the day with a cleansing herbal tea or a green juice made with leafy greens, celery, cucumber and lemon.
- Replace meals with fresh juices and smoothies throughout the day. Include a mix of fruits and vegetables and leafy greens to provide essential nutrients.
- Consider incorporating ingredients like ginger, turmeric or mint for their detoxifying properties and refreshing flavors.
- Stay hydrated by drinking water, herbal teas and coconut water in between your juices and smoothies.
Day 3: Light Plant-Based Meals
- Start the day with 1 quart of hot water with lemon or an herbal tea of your choice.
- Focus on light, plant-based meals for the day; include sources of lean protein like tofu, tempeh or sprouted legumes, along with plenty of vegetables and whole grains.
- Choose lighter cooking methods like solar cooking, steaming or grilling to preserve the nutrients in the ingredients.
- Snack on sprouted nuts, seeds or fresh fruits throughout the day.
- Hydrated with water, herbal tea and fresh coconut water.
- Listen to your body and adjust the cleanse to meet your individual needs and preferences.
- Be mindful of any food allergies or sensitivities you may have and avoid those foods during the cleanse.
- Prioritize sleep (in bed by 10:00 pm), gentle exercise, and stress reduction techniques like meditation or yoga to enhance the benefits of cleansing.
- Remember that a cleanse is not a long-term solution for weight loss or health improvement. It is a short-term reset that can help jump-start healthy habits.
