Clean program and clean 21 is a lifestyle wellness program

 Listen to Your Body

After completing the cleanse and reintroduction period, you may have noticed your body has specific dietary preferences and sensitivities. Continue to pay close attention to how you feel when enjoying certain foods. Respect your body's cues and make adjustments accordingly to craft a diet that suits your individual needs and supports your body's natural state and functionality. 

Emphasize Whole Foods  

Reap the rewards of the cleanse by continuing to focus on whole, unprocessed foods. Fresh fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts and seeds should form the foundation of your daily meals. These nutrient-dense options will keep you energized and support your overall well-being. 

💡Pro Tip: Get your greens in even when greens are scarce - like the airport, work, or when life simply gets you behind your groceries. Try Clean Greens, our superfood greens powder designed to help alkalize the body and bridge any nutritional gaps. 

Stay Hydrated 

Water is essential for optimal health. Ensure you drink an adequate amount of water throughout the day to maintain hydration and support your body's detoxification processes. You can easily up your hydration by also incorporating Daily Shakes, soups, or high water content foods like watermelon, honeydew, cucumbers or cantaloupe. 

Practice Mindful Eating 

During your cleanse, we also encouraged mindfulness exercises such as through meditation or journaling. Transfer those new or enhanced skills by savoring each bite and tuning in to hunger, fullness, and other cues your body may be sending. Avoid distractions during meals, such as screens or work, and aim to eat in a calm and relaxed environment when possible. 

Plan Your Meals and Explore New Recipes  

 Keep your post-cleanse diet exciting and varied by trying out new recipes that align with your health objectives. Experiment with different flavors and cooking techniques to prevent monotony and maintain enthusiasm for wholesome foods. 

Creating a weekly meal plan can help you stay on track with your goals and culinary adventures. Organize your list around nutritious ingredients to make meal prep easier and most enjoyable. 

Probiotics and Fermented Foods 

Support your gut health by incorporating probiotics, like Cultivate, and fermented foods into your diet. Yogurt, kefir, sauerkraut, kimchi, and kombucha are all excellent choices that promote a healthy balance of gut bacteria.  

Prioritize Sleep and Regular Exercise 

Compliment your nourishing diet with regular physical activity. Engaging in exercise not only enhances your overall well-being but also helps you stay committed to your health. Whether you continue with lighter exercises, like yoga, or decide to increase the intensity post-cleanse, don't forget to rest. 

Active rest periods and quality sleep is crucial for your body's recovery and rejuvenation. Establish a consistent sleep schedule and create a calming bedtime routine to ensure you get the rest your body needs. 

Manage Stress

Stress can impact your well-being and deconstruct the foundation of healthy habits you've built during the cleanse period. Incorporate stress-reduction techniques such as meditation, yoga, or spending time in nature to maintain a balanced mindset.
