I don’t know about you, but for me, ‘eating healthy’ needs to be easy, delicious, fun, easy… Wait, did I say ‘easy’ twice?!
Yes! Because easy IS that important to me!
Each spring for the past three years, I’ve done an amazing detox/refresh program. If your mind automatically flashes to images of hunger pangs while struggling to survive for days on just juice, broth, and water- you can let that go right now. This is not your typical ‘cleanse.’ With this program, you get to eat. You MUST eat. It’s part of the program, and it retrains your body to actually crave the foods and nutrients it needs most. (Veggies. Fruits. Plant proteins. Healthy fats. Herbs & spices… and LOTS of water!)
It’s also what makes this ‘detox’ the only one I know of that IS easy, delicious, and fun! You can read more about the program details and my experience with it here.
Last spring when I did this 3-day program, I accidentally started during my time of the month. (Sorry if this is TMI, just sharing the truth!) Before this, I would normally have nasty PMS symptoms including fatigue, irritability, and massive sweets cravings.
Going through with this on the dates I had planned felt like it would be way more difficult – but I had already committed to doing it with my clients before realizing how the dates coincided with my cycle! So I forged ahead, and honestly, I was pleasantly surprised!
Since my body was getting all the NUTRIENTS and hydration it needed, I was thrilled to experience the following:
- ZERO hormonal cravings (nope! Not even chocolate! And that used to get me every. Single. Month.)
- MORE ENERGY fueled by lower quantity, higher QUALITY calories
- NO FEELING DEPRIVED, even though I was consuming less food than usual
- I felt WAY LESS STRESSED & LESS IRRITABLE than usual for my time of the month
My body felt so nurtured and taken care of during those three days. I was inspired to improve my nutrition even more than usual. The experience taught me to nurture myself in a super intentional way, both during the days leading up to and during my periods, from then on.
I also loved the recipes inside the program so much! I really enjoy tweaking and revamping recipes into new dishes. Creativity in the kitchen is one of my talents. I wanted to continue to use the program recipes in new ways, and so I created this “Moroccan Carrot Salad Wrap.”
Fair warning: If you make this wrap in the days following the 3-Day Refresh, you most likely will NOT be able to finish the whole thing. So plan on sharing!
I’m planning to do this program again in a few weeks.
