As we roll out the red carpet for the new year many of us start thinking about how to shake things up so that we can feel stronger, healthier and all around more blissful!
It just so happens that my 20 day Sexy Sugar Cleanse may be the jump start you’ve been looking for! Not only is it the perfect way to kick off the year but it’ll give you the system reboot your body craves after holidays that often come with an extra side of stress and sugar! Now don’t get me wrong, a little s & s has its place but when they add up over a short period of time (i.e. holiday travel, last-minute Christmas shopping, traffic, family dynamics, wine, alcohol, cheese trays, cookie platters) it can start to have a not-so-pretty affect on our bodies both mentally and physically!
So rather than sit in shame figuring out what quick fix diet you can go on to reverse all the effects of the holidays, embrace the chance to make a change and try to look back on all the fun you had without regrets! My goal is to give you the tools you need to feel energized, satisfied, sexified and most importantly free from restrictions, binges and guilt!
If you want to read more about my cleanse you can check it out HERE or feel free to message me with questions! But in the meantime, I want to give you a little sneak peek into my Milk & Eggs delivery box so you can get an idea for the types of yummy meals you can enjoy while on the cleanse + some of the products I use on the daily that will actually make it feel easy and fun!
If you’ve never heard of Milk & Eggs, it’s an LA/Orange County delivery service which brings local farm fresh produce, milk, eggs, meat, fish and even non-perishable goods like nuts, and crackers to your doorstep in as little as 24 hours at rates up to 50% their normal shelf price! So if you’re anything like me and want to earn back a some time in the day to put towards more important things like self-care, this service is the shi*t. AND if you don’t live in LA, do a little online search for similar services in your area!
Ok so here’s the DL on what’s in my most recent order and how I use each item in my kitchen either when on the cleanse or just leading my every day life!
Califia Farms Unsweetened Almond Milk— I LOVE this brand because not only is it California based but it’s made with non-gmo, simple and easy to understand ingredients. It’s also carageenan free which is SO important to me— carrageenan is a polysaccharide which is made from a red seaweed intended to emulsify foods to keep the consistency like protein shakes and cottage cheese. It’s a total filler and creates major gastric distress so I recommend staying clear as much as you can! Ideas for use during your cleanse/in life: mixed into Matcha Latte’s, as the liquid base for a protein smoothie or for chia seed puddings!
Parmela Creamery Vegan Cheese- This is the first time I’ve tried this non-GMO dairy-free cheese and it won’t be the last! Made with zero artificial ingredients, this cashew nut cheese is aged for 30 days and tastes almost like the real thing! Ideas for use during your cleanse/in life: Melted onto a lettuce wrapped burger, as a topping for portobello stuffed mushrooms, mixed into a breakfast scramble, or on top of flax crackers for a midday snack!
Kite Hill Chive “Cream Cheese”- If it’s cream cheese you crave, this is the one! I can’t believe how similar to the real stuff this tastes and it’s made with almonds and is totally dairy-free! Ideas for use during your cleanse/in life: Mixed in with fried eggs, smoked salmon & everything but the bagel seasoning as your faux lox, smeared on top of celery sticks or a green apple for a snack, sautéed with cauliflower rice, mushrooms, nutritional yeast and a little nut milk to make fancy “risotto.”
Forager Cashewgurt- I have a lot of clients ask me for yogurt alternatives without all of the additives, preservatives and sugar and guess what? It is not an easy task! But after months of searching this cashew yogurt has my official stamp of approval— not just for ingredients but for taste! Ideas for use during your cleanse/in life: As a breakfast parfait— layer into a mason jar with mixed berries and nuts or as a dessert mixed with organic monk fruit sweetener, cinnamon, cacao nibs, coconut flakes and nut butter.
Curt’s Classic Flax Crackers- A lot of store bought flax crackers have tons of random ingredients like wheat, flour, raisins and even sugar so when I came across this brand with only flax seeds, onions, Italian seasoning and salt I was sold! Ideas for use during your cleanse/in life: As a snack with nut butter and chia seeds, smashed avocado and salt and pepper or crumbled on top of salads for a yummy and healthy crunch!
Artisana Coconut Butter— Coconut butter is loaded with healthy saturated fats which can help you turn off hunger hormones, switch on fat burning and keep you feeling fuller and more satisfied for longer! Ideas for use during your cleanse/in life: As a dairy-free creamer in decaf coffee, Matcha or tea, melted on top of coconut wraps like THESE or drizzled on top of roasted veggies!
Vital Proteins Pasture-Raised Eggs— This is hands down my favorite brand of organic eggs. First off, the packaging is super cute but most importantly these are eggs made by hens who have grazed outside in the open pasture so they are happier, healthier and more nutritious! In fact, in comparison to a conventional egg, pasture-raised eggs contain 2 times more omega-3 fatty acids (anti-inflammatory), 3 times more Vitamin E and 4-6 times more Vitamin D! Ideas for use during your cleanse/in life: Whisked into a veggie omelet, hard boiled for a snack on-the-go, mixed into a veggie burger patty or as an egg pancake!
Barely Bread— This bread would be best in moderation on Phase 2 or during the lifestyle transition but I like the fact that it only has 3 grams of net carbs, 1 gram of sugar and is gluten and preservative free. It’s also filled with ingredients we can actually pronounce like eggs, coconut flour, coconut oil, cinnamon and flax seeds! Ideas for use during your cleanse/in life: As a French toast soaked in eggs, stevia, cinnamon and nut milk, toasted and spread with nut or coconut butter or topped with Kite Hill’s original flavor cream cheese and a fried egg for protein!
Lastly, I picked up a few veggies like Brussels sprouts for crisping on the grill and serving with salmon, avocado for literally everyyyyything and watermelon radish to slice up on top of salads or avocado flax cracker “toast!”
Bottom Line: Going on my Sexy Sugar Cleanse doesn’t have to bland, boring or restrictive and if you plan ahead, get creative in the kitchen and supplement with brands that have got your back like these, I have a feeling you’ll be absolutely LOVING it in no time!
