Glow cleanse is home made right here in Montreal. It consists of 6 yummy smoothies to take during the corse of the day. Compared to a juice cleanse, you get a lot more proteins a fibbers when you do a smoothie one. You can choose to either do a 1 or 3 day cleanse. I adopted to do a one day cleanse since it was my first time doing any type of cleanse!
I decided to do it right now as a type of "spring cleaning" for my body after a long and cold winter. It was also a type of reset button to push before I had to dive head first into my university final exams. You should choose to do a cleanse when you can have a day or two to really relax and take care of yourself. Going to the spa, getting a massage, doing some relaxing yoga … You're releasing all the toxins from your body!
Be aware a smoothie cleanse is not for everyone! If you are expecting to be a mother or under 18 you are not illegible to participate. Also if you have a illness , taking any medication or diabetic you have to have the okay from your doctor to do the cure.
The first smoothie is the Elixir Opaline. A mix of cashew milk, spinach, avocado and chlorella. I started my day off with a cup of hot water & lemon juice like I do every morning. While reading my book, the psychology of yoga by Georg Feuerstein, I drank the yummy smoothie. I'm not a big breakfast eater so I had no hunger cravings all morning.
On my way to yoga at lunch time, I drank the second smoothie in the cleanse. The Gold Dose, made of; water, mango, orange, tangerines, chia seeds, lemon juice, aloe vera, turmeric and baobab. It has a got a nice a refreshing taste to perk you up before the afternoon. I still had no hunger cravings and felt amazing during yoga.
The third smoothie you get to have early afternoon is the Jade Cure. It's the classic green smoothie made of water, pineapple, mangos, kale, lime juice, match, spirulina and moringa. I went to the book store to read books about my up coming trip to Europe. At the time I started to have some headaches but drinking a couple cups of herbal tea and they started to subside. The trick to doing a cleanse is to drink enough fluids to wash out all the toxins in your body.
The yummiest smoothie of the cure is definitely in my opinion the Cocoa Concoction, but maybe it's just because I am a choco-holic! Before drinking this smoothie, I started to have a little big a hunger cravings but drinking this up made it all go away. It's made of water, banana, berries, dates, cocoa, chia seeds, vanilla, coconut oil, macca and chilli. I drank it right up while I was doing statistic homework.
The second to last smoothie of the day is the Orange Potion. It's a consistent and filling smoothie made of water, mango, orange, carrot juice, pumpkin, ginger juice, lime juice and reishi mushrooms. Still at 6pm, I had no hunger cravings or dip in my energy. I was able to concentrate on my class without any distractions.
The final smoothie of the day is a relaxing blend of Masala Chai tea, banana, figs, chia seeds and hemp seeds. After taking a nice hot bath, I winded down to drink the Dream Infusion while writing down my thoughts of my day feeling nice and rested with lots of energy. I have a chronic condition called Irritable Bowl Syndrome and doing this cleanse really have a nice break to my digestive system.
