This 1-day cleanse is the perfect reset button after an indulgent holiday, vacation, or one of those weeks of not-so-healthy eating. I know how tough it can be to commit to a cleanse for any real length of time (like 7, 14, or even 28 days).
Sometimes even 3 days feels like a lot, so I came up with this 1-day cleanse plan for when you don’t want to fuss around with lots of meal prep or put your summer social activities on hold.
Easy 1-Day Cleanse
A great day to do this cleanse is Monday or Tuesday after a big weekend. You can pick up the essentials from the grocery store on Sunday or Monday and get started right after that. I’m even giving you permission to buy the green juices and nut milk.
You can, of course, make these yourself, but the beauty of this cleanse is that you don’t have to spend much time in the kitchen!
Wake up and drink 12 ounces of warm water with the juice of 1/2 of a lemon.
Have a 1-ounce shot of a probiotic beverage. I chose beet kvass, but you could do apple cider vinegar or concentrated coconut water kefir.
For breakfast, eat a chia pudding. You can make spirulina, apple cinnamon, chocolate chai, or try the recipe below for raspberry chia pudding. Make life even easier by prepping it the night before.
Mid-morning, have a low-sugar, cold-pressed green juice.
For lunch, have a bowl of detox soup and a cup of bone broth. If you have some in the freezer, put it in the fridge the night before to thaw. You could buy this too if you don’t want to make it yourself.
Mid-afternoon, drink another low-sugar, cold-pressed green juice.
In the evening, have a warm low-sugar nut milk. Just pour it out into a small saucepan and gently warm it over low heat. You can add warming spices like turmeric and cinnamon if you like.
Go to bed early! You’ll wake up the next morning feeling fresh and energized. Let me know how it goes for you!

Looks interesting… which soup would you recommend for vegetarians? :)

I make like a vegetable stock soup base, then add light veggies and greens! Or there’s heaps of easy pumpkin/sweet potato soup recipes out there that aren’t too heavy and have a vege stock base!
