Do you feel bloated, cranky, tired + ‘heavy’ all the time?

Are you binging on sugar (or daydreaming about binging on sugar–like those so-good-yet-so-bad Reese’s Eggs) non-stop?

Looking for a way to feel lighter, brighter + leaner so you can keep up with everything spring has to offer?

Forget spring cleaning your home (for now 😉 )– it’s time to spring clean your body, mind + spirit, Luv.

INTRODUCING….

The Lighten Up! Cleanse: One Week of Easy + Nourishing Foods to “Spring Clean” Your Body, Mind + Spirit

Seriously, what if in just one week, you could…

  • Stop experiencing such crazy mood swings, hormonal issues + PMS/menopausal symptoms?
  • Get rid of all those weird aches and pains, arthritis symptoms + OMG-here-we-go-again headaches?
  • Radically reduce your chances of picking up a cold, flu or annoying sinus infection?
  • Heal your pesky skin issues–eczema, rashes + more–and even out your complexion?
  • Get rid of any embarrassing bad breath or body odor issues?
  • Start healing your adrenal fatigue?
  • Stop feeling so gassy + uncomfortable?
  • Sleep better, longer?
  • Lower your risk of high cholesterol, insulin resistance + even pre-diabetes?
  • Stop seasonal allergies before they even start?
  • Reduce any inflammation anywhere in the body?
  • Stop craving sweets/carbs/what-have-you foods all the time?
  • Maybe even lose a little weight? 😉

It’s ALL possible.

The Lighten Up! 7-Day Cleanse is a gentle, holistic cleanse designed to give your digestive system a break + leave you feeling lighter, brighter + leaner–so you can thrive all spring long.

When you join, you’ll receive a day-by-day action plan with whole-food-based recipes + self-care practices, so you know exactly what to eat + do every day to give your body the care + “cleaning” it oh-so-desperately needs.

This is not a fast or detox. All week long, you’ll be eating REAL food–I’m talking the most delicious, nutritious + nourishing dishes spring has to offer, from soups + salads to elixirs + seasonal vegetables–all while re-energizing + recharging after a long winter. (Yep. ACTUAL food. Deprivation is SO not my style.)

But that’s not all.  

This holistic spring cleanse also includes 24/7 online support from me personally and transformative daily lifestyle exercises that will help you think clearer, feel emotionally stronger + ‘cleanse’ your mind + soul right alongside your body. (There’s a big focus on mind-body medicine and the big impact your thoughts + energetic patterns have on your system.)

This Cleanse is NOT about deprivation or fasting.

Heck to the no. I would never ask you to stop feeding your one gorgeous, glorious body! You’ll get the best of both worlds here – you’re going to eat plenty of whole, delicious and unprocessed food that tastes great, is great for you and leaves you satisfied and fulfilled. Win-win-win! Oh, and I promise you won’t have to take a ton of pills or drink powdery, chalky shakes, either. 

Instead, all 7 days, you’ll get to sip and savor ACTUAL foods – like spring soups, smoothies, fresh salads and loads of anti-oxidant berries that will cleanse and nourish your body and give it just what it needs.

Think of it like an annual ‘tune up’ – or ‘makeover’ – for your body, mind and spirit. By taking the time to care for your body now, you can enjoy the seasonal changes knowing that your system has been revitalized and prepared for all the good times ahead. 

And? You’ll probably feel better than you have all year long…even if you still don’t decide to leave the couch. (I don’t judge!) 

By following The Lighten Up! Cleanse for just one week, you will:

R

Get rid of toxins (especially in the intestines + liver)

R

Unlock incredible reserves of energy you never even knew you had, so you can keep up with life (and the kiddos as they find Easter Eggs)

R

Jumpstart your healthy eating habits and weight loss efforts

R

Look + feel younger (in all the best ways)

R

Burn off those Easter candies

R

Give your entire body, mind and spirit a tune up

R

Boost your immune system (read: seriously lower your chances of getting seasonal allergies, a bad cold or worse, the spring flu)

R

Improve your digestion

R

Recharge + re-energize your entire body, mind + spirit

One of the common cries for help I hear around this time of year is, “OMG. I not only gained weight over the winter – I feel awful. What do I do?”

 

The truth is, winter is a ‘heavy’ season and a lot of us feel this way emotionally + physically when it’s all over–especially when we’re not quite ‘spring chickens’ anymore, as they say. 

Soup Quote

Honestly, most of us do a whole lotta nothing over the winter – we prefer cozy blankets + Netflix binges over braving the cold. As a result, we get stagnant + little (or big!) aches + pains develop. We also pack on the pounds because–hello!–we’re not moving our bodies. Add all that to the fact that we often eat a more acidic diet in the winter (like high-protein foods that mess with our intestines) and it’s a recipe for feeling like crap when spring – with all its hustle + bustle – rolls around.

So it’s no surprise that by the time spring shines its glorious (and much-missed!) sunlight down on us, ALL our bodies are basically SCREAMING for a break!

But honestly, I can’t take credit for the idea of the “spring cleanse.”

Today, we consider spring the unofficial season of lightening up + starting fresh–but the truth is, cultures have historically fasted or cleansed during the spring months in different fashions for hundreds + hundreds of years.

Back in the day, humans were much more in tune with nature and they listened to and flowed in harmony with the natural cycles of life.  

So, during spring, our ancestors (including some of our grandparents, even!) naturally gravitated toward cleansing foods in the springtime. Foods that just-so-happen to work in a beautifully orchestrated sequence to get us back to our natural warm-weather weight (or what we now call our “bikini bodies”.

Don’t just take it from me, let my clients do the talking!

“I allowed my body to speak to me, rather than me always speaking to my body.”

My greatest achievement in doing this cleanse was that I successfully completed my first cleanse! Aside from realizing the intentions I set out for myself, I experienced many other “surprise” benefits…the overall feeling of calmness I felt the majority of the time, being mindfully aware of the food I was eating and eating in a relaxed state. During the cleanse I allowed my body to speak to me, rather than me always speaking to my body.

Results from the cleanse included jump-starting my weight loss (I lost more than 5 lbs!), having more energy, feeling in control of my cravings, eating healthier, and just needing a change in general.”

I finished my cleanse on Tuesday and was really happy with the results. Looking back at my personal intentions that I wrote down before I started, I feel that I managed to meet all of them, including jump-starting my weight loss (I lost more than 5 lbs!), having more energy, feeling in control of my cravings, eating healthier, and just needing a change in general. It was a great experience!

Thanks, Dee-Dee! (extra bonus: my husband was very supportive!)

The discipline of the cleanse helped me get back on track with healthy eating, and it jump-started my weight loss again.

I just wanted to write to thank you for the wonderful Cleanse. I thought it was easy, and so delicious! The recipes were great- so yummy, and many of them will remain favorites even now that the cleanse has ended.

The discipline of the cleanse helped me get back on track with healthy eating, and it jump-started my weight loss again. An added benefit I didn’t expect is that my joints don’t hurt. Clearly I’m sensitive to something, and I can play detective as I put things back into my diet and figure out just what I should avoid.

I have more energy and better focus, as well as a renewed awareness of how the things I put in my mouth impact my every day life. Thanks!

I lost 8 to 10 lbs, feel lighter, and look better. I have received many complements on my appearance since I finished. My sugar and chocolate cravings have all but disappeared. I have learned to enjoy a variety of fresh vegetables in my daily lunch salad. Thanks!

Gas, bloating, heart burn, brain fog, low energy, skin breakouts, persistent belly fat are the result of sub-optimal diet and life style choices. If you let it go further, you are definitely setting the stage for more serious health challenges.

It’s it time to take care of you!          

This cleanse isn’t about fasting or starvation. (Read: You get to eat REAL FOOD!) I get it – when you think ‘cleanse’ you probably imagine weird tasting shakes, juicing, fasting and wanting to punch people because you’re SO dang hungry.

 

Well, my cleanse is no such thing. I’m all about feeding yourself right, not starving yourself. This cleanse is simply a pure, whole foods based diet for 7 days which eliminates the most common hidden food triggers. You get to eat…and eat delicious food! My intention is to help you crowd out the unhealthy foods with loads of other, nutrient dense and mouth watering foods that are easy to make and “normal” enough that your family will enjoy.

It’s about more than food, too. This spring cleanse isn’t just about feeding yourself seasonal foods. It’s focused on mind-body medicine (it’s kinda my thing) and the impact that your thoughts and energetic patterns have on your physical symptoms, too. So, in addition to the food plan, you’ll also receive daily lifestyle exercises to create transformation in every area of your life.

The good news? These foods–including early spring roots, fluorescent green sprouts, berries + cherries–are still around + available for us to nibble, nom + nosh on today.

And that’s why they’re the bedrock of The Lighten Up! Cleanse.

Here’s why they’re each so amazing, in case you’re curious:

  • Early spring roots like dandelion, burdock, chaparral, goldenseal and Oregon grapes cleanse the liver + intestines.  

 

  • Fluorescent green sprouts are packed with nutrients and chlorophyll, which allow the new growth of precious intestinal microbes– the bugs that help our immunity, level our mood, supply our energy, aid our digestion, regulate our blood sugar, maintain our bone density…and just about everything else. 😉

 

  • Berries and cherries are polyphenol-rich antioxidants that flush out any built-up congestion. (I won’t give you all the details, but trust me when I say that we truly need these in order to cleanse our intestines + digestive tissues to survive the heat of summer. 

Pretty cool, right?

But I know we’re all busy and as much as we want to put our health first, we don’t always know how.

That’s one of the reasons I created The Lighten Up! Cleanse–to make it super simple (okay, and dee-lish 😉 ) to eat like our ancestors.

(And not to totally freak you out, but the truth is, if we don’t cleanse ourselves, our bodies will TOTALLY find a way to do it for us.  If we don’t change our habits and cleanse our bodies, we leave ourselves open to colds and flu, which is one way the body works to cleanse itself. Crazy, right?)

Bottom line: Spring is the ultimate time to eat “lighter”–and we’ve known it for hundreds of years!

Ready to spring – I mean, go 😉 – for it?

YES PLEASE

I know you’ve got questions, so I’ve got answers.

Is this a juice cleanse, or will I be able to eat real food?

No–and yes absolutely! You’ll be sipping and savoring:

  • delicious smoothies (easy to prepare and will boost your energy)
  • herbal drinks (fabulous for digestion)
  • whole fresh foods – the real deal (these foods will combat inflammation and load you up with nutrients your body’s craving)
  • easy snacks (to make sure you never feel deprived)
  • optional animal protein if your body needs it
Will I starve?

No, no! Every food you’ll find in all the recipes is a belly-satisfying spring food that’s easy to digest.

Will there be special ingredients or supplements required for this Cleanse?

Nope. You can buy your food at the grocery store and at the farmer’s market. (And I’ll also give you five-star recommendations for certain herbs, supplements and superfoods to enhance the detoxification process. They aren’t necessary, but they ARE amazing. 🙂 )

Is it safe for everyone?

Yes, but I do recommend that you listen to your body. Your body knows what it needs! There is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to a spring cleanse, but it is something everyone can benefit from. 🙂

Will I have to eat strange foods I’ve never heard before?

Many of the foods will be familiar to you, but I will also introduce you to some new ingredients and recipes that will become favorites of yours even after the detox. You will be able to pick and choose which foods and recipes you want to eat during the detox. You can stick with the foods you know, or you can choose to be a little adventurous and try something new. It’s totally up to you!

What foods will I be eating?

The Spring Cleanse is all about seasonal vegetables, fruits, whole grains, and legumes. Some of these (delish) foods include: Kale, Spinach, Spring Mesclun Mix, Dandelion. Mushrooms, Onions, Scallions, Quinoa, Radishes, Chickpeas, and more.

And it DOES NOT include the following, which are known to cause inflammation and/or imbalances in many:

  • Dairy
  • Gluten
  • Eggs
  • Corn
  • Soy (minus some fermented miso)
  • Nightshades – potatoes, tomatoes, bell peppers and eggplant
  • Peanuts
  • Caffeine
  • Refined Sugar
  • Alcohol
Can I do this cleanse while I work all week?

Absolutely! You might want to set aside a few hours on the weekend to prepare a few dishes – this will make it very easy to follow the protocol. Of course, if it is possible to slow life down a bit during this week – that would be ideal. Make less commitments, go to bed earlier, schedule some “me-time.” Most importantly, ask for support from your spouse, friends, neighbors and children.

One way to make it easier is to get a friend or neighbor to sign up with you. This way the two of you can trade off food preparation each day. This is also a great way to receive additional support.

How much preparation is required?

You can do most of the prepping on the weekend to prepare you for the week. You do not have to do a lot of cooking every day. (Of course, if you cook for your family there will be extra prepping and cooking. While many of the recipes can be enjoyed by everyone you may be making some extra meals just for yourself.)

Will I experience any side effects? How will I feel?

It depends largely on what you’re eating now. If you wolf down sugar, processed foods and caffeine on a daily basis, you might experience withdrawal, including headache, irritability, fatigue and cravings. This is a good sign– it means toxins are being released from your body! And don’t worry: It will pass generally in a few days. Most people feel great, have better sleep, and more energy than they’ve had in years after cleansing.

Will the Cleanse make me "run" to the bathroom?

Everyone has different bowel habits. Some people eliminate two to three times per day, while others eliminate less frequently. The cleanse is very gentle and not designed to make you run constantly to and from the restroom. You will be able to maintain a fairly normal schedule. Promise!

Do I need to have a special blender? I do not own a Vitamix or a juicer.

No, you don’t need a Vitamix. Any regular blender will do. You don’t need a juicer, either. 🙂

How will I know what to do?

You will get a step by step, day by day plan. There are many recipes to choose from so you can decide what you like. If you want an exact menu that is there for you too.

Will I get support from you?

I am available by email throughout the cleanse to personally answer any of your questions or concerns. I’m here for you!

Do we meet in person?

No, there’s no need. All materials will be sent to you via email. You will receive support via daily inspirational emails in the comfort of your home. Pull up a glass of vino and relax with a little love and tenderness each day.

Will I lose weight?

People often lose weight following a protocol like this–although everyone is different and nothing can be guaranteed. Sometimes there are more complex issues that may need some personalized attention. However, you will almost certainly look better, have more energy and have clearer skin as you go through the program. Isn’t that worth something, too? Remember, excess weight is waste. Once you get rid of some of the waste the weight will start to go with it.

I love coffee (or alcohol, chocolate, sweets, carbs ...etc.) I am afraid I will not be able to stick to the plan.

I will give you suggestions on what you can drink instead of coffee and how to gently reduce your coffee (sugar, alcohol) intake prior to the cleanse.

What about exercise? I am training for a marathon. Can I do this?

It depends on your training schedule and the date of your event. You can do the cleanse and you might be in better shape to perform. Most people honestly FEEL like doing something more restorative and gentle like yoga or tai chi while cleansing.

I am not sure if I can do this cleanse. I have never cleansed before.

Yes, you can. Almost everyone can do a gentle cleanse like this. I created this cleanse so it’s doable for anyone –and I’ll be there cheering you on every step of the way.

Can my spouse, partner, child join this cleanse?

Absolutely! That would be even better.

Are there additional costs?

No. You will receive the handbook and recipes as part of the cost for the program. Of course you will need to buy your food and any optional supplements.
