2nd Annual Total Reset Cleanse at Raw Food Rehab

One-Month Raw Food Challenge 
Raw Food Rehab will be hosting our 2nd annual 28 Day Total Reset Cleanse during the month of February based on the Raw Food Cleanse by Penni Shelton.

For beginners (which I belong to), Penni recommends starting with the 3 Day Energy Boost Cleanse. This will give you an opportunity to learn how your body will react to this process of boosting up your energy through detox. If you don't have a juicer or blender, the commitment to eat a 100% raw food diet is recommended. 

In addition to a 3-day cleanse, Penni recommends a 7 Day Rejuvenation Cleanse which can be followed consecutively for 28 days. It is good for everyone regardless of which stage of the journey you are on:
Upon Arising: 32 oz. pure water w/ fresh lemon or lime juice
Before Noon:  32 oz. of fresh juice or green smoothie &/or fresh seasonal fruit
Midday: Big, colorful salad w/ a delicious dressing &/or raw blended soup or a cleansing raw food entree
Snack:  Allowed but only if you are truly hungry. This can be fruit, cut veggies w/ pate or dip, fresh juice or smoothie, herbal tea, elixir or a smart cocktail.
Evening: same as the midday meal.

You can also find some great recipes for Detox & Cleansing on Raw Food Rehab website. 

The 28 Day Total Reset Cleanse is designed for those who would like to loose substantial amount of weight and/or for those with a history of compromised diet, unhealthy lifestyle, and environmental exposures. This includes almost all of us, unless you have already taken full responsibility for your own body and health.  Even those who have been practicing raw-food diet for a while might find new inspirations following the challenge updates. The 28 day protocol starts off with 10-14 days of liquids in the form of juices, smoothies or blended soups/salads. The remaining days look a lot like the 7 Day Cleanse.

The Master Cleanse
After learning about The Master Cleanse and raw food diet from Lilou Mace's videos, I'm excited to start on this journey. Many detoxing and cleansing diets use the lemonade described in The Master Cleanse. I'm in the process of reading the book now and will do a post on how to start on a Master Cleanse and how to come out of it.

My Plan
I invite you to join me and sign up for the 1-Month Total Reset Cleanse with Penni. I feel that it  will be a great start of the New Year! Luckily, I have both a juicer and blender. It's time to put them to use. I'm planning to shop tomorrow for a 3-day cleanse, extend it to 4 days, and start a 28-day cleanse on Tuesday, February 1st. After a month of raw food diet, I will go for a 10 day Master Cleanse. We can share our experience here.
