My DIY Juice + Raw Food Cleanse

Juice-Cleanse-Live

After spending a bunch of time traveling and eating out,Β I decided to put together my own sort of DIY juice and raw food cleanse to get my mind and body back on track.

I would love to say that I made my own juice, but there’s just no way. I didn’t have the time or patience. I bought my juices from Whole Foods and you can do the same thing. I went with the pressed raw organic juices from Live Organic Food that sell for around $10 each. The green juice alone contains six pounds of leafy greens in one bottle. If I were to buy that much produce and juice it myself, it would likely work out to the same.

The whole cleanse was DIY in the sense because it wasn’t a set program I was following, I just created something that worked right for me. It’s sort of the lazy person’s raw food cleanse where you buy most of the food and assemble it yourself. Here’s what I did:

Day #1 – Raw Food Cleanse

I wanted to ease myself into juicing, so I transitioned onto a raw food diet to get my body ready. You can buy most of this stuff at a health food store and if you can buy organic, even better. This is what I ate:

Breakfast – Larabar, dates, apple slices, banana, strawberries, almonds (more…)

Kale Quinoa Fritters with Tangy Avocado Sauce

Kale Quinoa Fritters Avocado Sauce

Love kale?

I was inspired by a kale quinoa burger recipe I had seen floating around but the only problem was that it was packed full of unclean ingredients like processed cheese and bread crumbs. I swapped the dirty out and brought in the clean and voila! Perfection for my #thatcleanlife Spring Break Detox Challenge.

I called it a fritter but really, it could work as a burger. It’s best served on a bed of greens topped with the delicious Tangy Avocado Sauce. 100% clean and so, so, soooo delicious. Packed full of protein, dark leafy greens and topped with a dose of healthy fat with a zing of vitamin C. I like to make up a double batch, cook em’ all up and then freeze them. They are great to pull out of the freezer and reheat when you are running short on time.

So without further ado, here’s the recipe:
