Register Below for the Free 5 Days Clean and Reset Challenge

Starts Oct 15th 2016

 

Welcome, my awesome friend!

I’m so excited to have you here! These days there’s a lot of confusion on what’s ok to eat and what not. And I’m here to simplify that and bring back real foods into the picture. In the end, it’s as simple as eating fresh foods, prepared in non-invasive ways, mostly plants and allowing a 10-20% space for indulgences.
 
I often hear comments regarding the way I eat. They go along the lines of: “I couldn’t eat the way you do” or “It’s easy for you, you have recipes and can make things without thinking too much about it.” Does this remind you of someone? :) Are you stuck on ideas for what to cook?
 
Are you too tired of being tired and you’d like to change that?
 
Are you ready to fall in love with your food and your better self?

If yes at any of the above, then your body and mind could probably do with a break from the routine. 

Clean eating and the list of NO’s for sugar, dairy, wheat, meat, fast food, processed food etc. can feel daunting. “What will I replace it with?” you say? There’s plenty of choices! I got that covered for you!

I’ve prepared 5 days of delicious recipes for juices, smoothies and food, clean and yummy, meant to make you shine from inside out and help you transition into autumn after a relaxed summer. 

If you’ve never eaten this way, I encourage you to give it a go! However, sudden changes can put too much stress on your body, so take a few days to ease into it and reduce the stimulants (coffee, sugar, processed salts, and fats) one by one so you don’t experience the sudden crash in energy or accelerated detox effects.

Every now and then, if you only need a gentle nudge over the clean eating fence, ripping the band aid fast is the easiest  way to do it. It’s up to you. If you have any medical conditions or you’re pregnant you should speak with your doctor first before making any sudden changes. 

It’s easier to do something when you’re in a community and also to have the support of those around you rather than doing it by yourself, so we’ll be doing this together! We have a facebook group where we’ll share our experiences and results and accountability. 

In a nutshell, this 5 Days Clean and Reset Challenge is your chance to step into this journey together and with support.

We will begin on the 15th of October and do it for 5 days.

3 Days of smoothies and juices, followed by 2 days of delicious breakfast smoothie, lunch and dinner recipes. We keep it easy, fun and colorful :) 

Some meals will be raw, some will be gently cooked, some will be liquid, as I want your transition to be smooth and light.

How does it work? You sign up here for it below. You will then get the shopping list to your email a few days before we begin and you can join us live and share your experiences with us!

Good or good?

Let’s do this! Kale-lelujah!

Much love,

HERE’S WHAT OTHER PEOPLE EXPERIENCED WHILE DOING THE CHALLENGE: 

“Just to say a big Thank You. I managed to stick to the plan 100% and it’s been an amazing experience. My favourite recipe were the carrot zoodles (zingy pasta), Tzatziki cucumber zoodles and cabbage steaks. I also really loved the Buddha bowl. I would say the biggest learning for me was that it’s really enjoyable making food from scratch!!! I’ve been eating fairly healthily for a while, but was taking short cuts so wasn’t getting enough ‘living food’. So wonderful to see a loved one eat something you’ve prepared for them and you know it will nourish them too. Again thank you so much for sharing all the recipes and advice. It’s been awesome!”️  – Uta

Claire 

“I am so delighted I took part in this awesome challenge. I’ve eaten well for several months now, but I didn’t realize how many new and endless possibilities there are in regards to clean eating- all the new herbs and spices I’ve played with this past week have been so tasty. Your meal plans and delicious combinations have opened my mind up to how I can take my cooking to the next level. Thank you for your brilliant energy, commitment, creativity and inspiring recipes Denisa! Not only do I feel full of energy, I also feel super grateful.” – Eleanor

 

FAQ

What do I eat during the day? 
 
The recipes given will be for either juices and smoothies or a morning smoothie, lunch and dinner. They’re created to meet your nutritional needs. If you’re training or you feel it’s not enough for the activities you carry during the day, you can increase the portions quantity so that it meets your needs.
 
I can’t find all the ingredients in the recipes, can I replace them? 
 
Of course! This is just a guide for you to get easier into it and do it more often. You’ll soon learn what you like more and what less and you’ll be able to make your own mixes according to your taste buds. That’s the idea after all, to find your creative flow and be able to do it by yourself. I am making these recipes with what’s available in the UK at the moment. If you can’t find a specific ingredient, don’t worry. Choose the closest similar item or ask in the support group for options.
 
When do I get the recipes? 
 
You will receive your email with the recipes the latest the day before we start. This will be a Saturday so you can do your grocery shopping for the week. 
 
 
I have a very busy schedule and I don’t have time to cook all day long. Can I still do it? 
 
There’s always a way – that’s my motto. You can prepare some foods the night before and have them for lunch too. Or make two days worth of food at once. For the breakfast smoothies you can wash and cut all the ingredients according to recipe and freeze them. Then you just pop them in the blender the next morning, add water or nut milk and voila! 
 
 
Do I need fancy equipment? 
Not at all. I always say you should do the best with what you have. So if you already have a blender at home, by all means please use it rather than thinking it’s not good enough. Like in every aspect of life there are levels you can be at and there’s always a fancier machine to get your hands on. I say, use it till it drops. 
 
I use a TNC Vitamix for both blending, juicing, grinding and a Kenwood Food processor.
 
What do you need:
 
A blender
A Juicer (If you don’t have one I’ll show you how to juice with your blender)
Nut milk bag
Chopping board
Knife
Fresh Ingredients
Spices
