Day Three of my spring cleanse.
It’s been a good few days to be honest, I felt like I was overdue for a cleanse, my body is enjoying the feeling of lightness!
This cleanse is one of my own programme’s I’ve devised. This particular one ive used a few times before now and it works well. This time my eldest Daughter whom is 22 and my Partner Jamie have joined me.
I will give a quick rundown of the format of this cleanse.
This is a raw vegan cleanse, I will not eat cooked foods during this time. This cleanse is gentle yet very effective at cleansing the digestive tract and rejuvenating your cells with living foods containing live enzymes.
It’s a gentle start on Day One ease in with two smoothies, raw lunch, herbal tea, lemon water and various Qi gong exercises to stimulate the lymph system.
Day two Two juices, raw lunch, herbal tea (my own blend), minimum of 20 mins exercise enough to raise core temperature.
Day Three liquid only day, warm nut milk with carob, juices, smoothies, water. No tea, no solid food.
Day four 24 hour water fast
Day five ease out of water fast with juices, smoothie and a few herbal teas and two pieces of fruit.
This is a five day cleanse, however I may carry on for longer see how I feel Friday.
Today is Day One of my spring cleanse. This is my own programme I’ve created that I’ve used many times and it works a treat. I will be offering this programme and a few others once my website is up and running 🙂
It was my Vegan/Began/Vulcan or whatever label it is Birthday on the 1st April! Two years! It’s been a journey, a great journey, a tough journey, an enlightening one for sure!
Will be writing in more detail tomorrow. Wanted to let you know I’ve completed day one of my cleanse.
Feeling ok so far 🙂

Woke up today feeling wide eyed and bushy tailed 🙂
I started the day with a Green hemp smoothie I love these as they are filling nutritious, boost the immune system and are great fun to create. hemp is natures perfect food for Vegans/Vegetarians as it contains balanced amounts of omega 3, 6 and 9. Hemp is great for the brain, skin and all of our organs. I have stumbled upon a great article about hemp at hemptons
Hemp milk recipe:
3 tablespoons of hemp seeds (grind with a coffee grinder or pestle and mortar)

I had water throughout day then a salad at 5 pm
Unfortunately I tucked into the salad and had eaten half of it before I remembered to take a picture :-/
I used Kale in the salad, rocket, baby leaf, pine nuts, olives and I made a mint dressing with mint leaves, olive oil, tsp raw honey, tsp cider vinegar and dash lemon juice.
I had a raw chocolate desert after that I’d made previously from freezer.
Yum yum bubblegum 🙂
Sticky, chocolatey, caramel, crunchy peanut middle!!

Think again as I have created a Raw Vegan Version of STARBAR an old favourite of mine
