Hi there! Our kind sponsor Kaeng Raeng has something to share with you.
If you’re looking for a cleanse this one is super easy and very affordable and vegan yay! And unlike juice it’s easy for travel. Check out their great offer.
Thank you Kaeng Raeng!
Cleansing is a growing trend in health and wellness whereby you adhere to a short-term plant-based diet and avoid processed and unhealthy foods in order to release toxins and jumpstart healthier eating.
If you haven’t heard of it yet, Kaeng Raeng is an all natural, vegan, gluten free meal replacement cleanse program that includes raw food and only pronounceable ingredients, so you can detox without deprivation or interruption to your busy life.
We live in a toxic world. Every day we consume millions of toxins, chemicals, additives, and preservatives in the air, in our food, and in the chemicals we put on our skin. Yes, our bodies have natural detoxification systems (our livers and kidneys) but we were never meant to consume the types and quantities of foods that are part of a conventional American diet. During the digestive process, your body cannot healthfully separate the clean from the bad portions of toxic foods. Abstaining from those foods and flushing natural ingredients through the digestive system releases those toxins that have built up in your cells and organs over years, toxins that contribute to weight gain, fatigue, bloating, indigestion, and poor mood.
You don’t need a magic pill – simply adhering to a plant-based diet and consuming only 100% natural ingredients will cleanse your body. For the very few, that’s already how they eat. But for the rest of us non-perfect souls, sometimes we just need a kick start. By putting only natural foods into your system, your digestive system has a chance to “reset” and use less energy. This gives your body more energy and stability to help enhance sleep, alertness, functional energy, and provide strength for your immune system, which improves hair, skin, and overall health quality.
What Kind of Cleanse is Best for You?
Here are the core principles you should look for in a cleanse. And of course, cruelty-free is a given!
All-Natural: This should go without saying, but if you want to return your body to its organic state, you can’t use anything artificial, so stick with ingredients you can pronounce.
Stimulant/Laxative-Free: A cleansing diet should not involve any harsh laxatives. Forcing elimination through the body can result in dehydration and laxative dependency. Doing a cleanse with caffeine can increase your heart rate, make you feel anxious, and cause insomnia.
Filling/Nutritional: Pick a detox program that’s got plenty of protein and amino acids. Make sure it’s got lots of fiber since fiber keeps you full and keeps blood sugar levels in tact (juice tends to create insulin spikes).
Keep it Practical: You don’t have to spend $100 each day or commit to a 30 day program if that doesn’t fit your lifestyle. You can successfully do healthy cleanses for less than $25 a day (all-inclusive) and you can start to feel better in as little as 3 days. Scared you’ll fail without real food? You do not need to fast or go liquid only to successfully cleanse your body. Pick a program that’s nutritionally complete with real food if fasting isn’t for you.
After completing a vegan cleanse, you will feel more mindful of the food choices that you make: more plants, less processed foods. You’ll start to notice fats and sugars in your food, not because of their calorie content, but because of how those foods make you feel since you’ve given your body a rest.
You’ll wake up with a strange sensation: energy. Your tastes buds will dance with excitement at the thought of steamed broccoli or a ripe peach. You’ll have fewer cravings. You may have lost a few pounds, reduced that belly bloat and inflammation, and even cleared up your skin and eyes, but more importantly you’ll genuinely feel better and motivated to maintain your healthier, happier lifestyle.
