Taking On The Vibrant Health Cleanse
Cleanses. Some of you might go urgh … some of you might go yay! I tend to waver between the two, but think I’m leaning more towards the yay side. I did an amazing juice cleanse with One Juice at the beginning of last year (which rocked my world), and recently explored the world of Vibrant Health – which I want to be exploring more of soon!
So, I was supposed to the Vibrant Health Cleanse in May … but I lasted a day coz I was so cold I thought I would literally fall over and break apart like an icicle. Literally. So I very quickly learnt that doing a cleanse like that during winter is a terrible idea, and held on to my stash of Vibrant Health Cleanse so I could do the cleanse at the start of summer … which is obviously a much better idea!!!! I had amazing results with my One Juice cleanse, which I did in summer, and I didn’t struggle with the not eating part at all.
Maple Syrup, Lemon, Cayenne
The Vibrant Health Cleanse is a little different. It’s not a juice cleanse and you won’t find yourself sipping a gazillion veggie juices. Instead, it’s an organic powdered blend of maple syrup, lemon, and cayenne pepper. The cayenne can be quite intense, but I found it rather comforting – and drinking a glass of this blend will certainly make you ooze healthiness. I found it particularly tasty mixed with hot water to form a cayenne-lemon tea. The maple syrup adds that slight touch of sweetness, though it’s not overwhelming. That’s a good thing.
Re-Setting The System
There may be lots of discussion on cleanses and that the idea of ‘cleansing’ your system doesn’t really work … but I’ve found, personally, that doing a cleanse like this completely re-sets my system. Why? Because I’m a foodie. And I like to eat. And sometimes this means I eat to much and my stomach is this ever-growing elephant that wants to consume more and more. And coz I don’t want to end up looking like an elephant, it’s good to train myself to eat less again – which, as anyone who has tried to diet will know, is incredibly hard. Cleanses, for me, do just that: They give me a scheduled break to reset my system, eat less … and have long-lasting effects of goodness.
And that’s why I’m super excited to (finally) do my Vibrant Health Cleanse as soon as the warmer weather hits!
