We decided to change things up a bit in Bliss Land and try a full cleanse in honor of aligning with our higher selves.
Food is not only a way to get energy, but food is vibration itself. So, of course we started playing with food — even more-so than we usually do. This cleanse incorporates high vibrational raw living foods, wild foods, power herbs, and nutrient dense superfoods. Plus, we are focussing a lot more on keeping our thoughts aligned with what we really want.
Do you know how much energy is truly wasted when you allow your mind to drift into worry, doubt and fear?
So, there will be meditation, yoga, and plenty of surprises– and of course, we are planning to share how it changes our lives.
The best part if this cleanse is that each of us is honoring our unique needs and therefore may eat slightly differently and choose different practices.
Good News! We Have a Guest Joining Us on Our Cleanse!
A great friend and dear client, Moe, has decided to join our cleanse with us. Since we are currently living in the same house– this works out best for all of us. We all have deeper support and the extra help in the kitchen is great too!
During the course of our cleanse, we will share Moe’s breakthroughs and results as this is her first cleanse and she has her own goals.
Today marks our 3rd official day Bliss Cleansing together!
The Recipes (from 9/18)
1 cup herbal decoction from 9/17
1 whole coconut (meat and water)
1/2 large avocado
1-2 cups carrot, ginger, celery, fennel juice (fresh)
MSM (for skin healing and bone healing from car accident last year)
Blend all of the ingredients together and drink as much as you need.
Us three adults had about 12 oz and Dougie had 6 oz. Then, I drank more later on in the day.
Zucchini Noodles and Sauce X 2
Ingredients/ Sauce 1:
3 cloves of fermented garlic (fermented in olive oil, coconut oil, honey, coconut kefir and raw apple cider vinegar for 30+ days)
1 cup sun-dried tomatoes
Juice of 1 lemon
Dash sea salt
1/4 cup delicious raw organic olive oil
Blend and mix into raw spiral-sliced zucchini noodles
Ingredients/ Sauce 2:
2 tblsp GF Dijon Mustard with horseradish
1/4 cup of amazing olive oil
Juice of 1 lemon
Cumin, curry powder, garlic powder, cayenne pepper and a sprinkle of nutmeg
Whisk all ingredients together except almonds and mix into your bowl of noodles. Top with almonds.
Kale Chips ( We didn’t eat these entirely raw for purposes of Thyroid Love)
1 lb of yummy kale
Juice of 2 lemons
Coconut oil and olive oil to completely coat kale
sea salt, garlic powder, curry, cumin, cayenne and nutmeg (in keeping with flavors in the noodles)
Cut off kale stems
Drench kale in the above ingredients
Line a baking sheet with the kale leaves
Bake at lowest temp for a few hours or until it reaches your desired texture.
We make them crisp but not burned ( burned food promotes cancer)
Liver Lovin Juice
As we transition into cleansing phase we ate a lot of fat on our first 2 days. We needed it. Fat is a great source of caloric energy, and also warms your adrenals and has a lot to do with brain health. But, we also wanted to give our livers some more help, as our livers must process those fats. Of course raw, organic fats are much easier to digest. ( note: there is already liver support in our elixir… milk thistle, schisandra etc)
1 fennel bulb
3 inches ginger
2 whole lemons… rind and all
2 heaping tablespoons of curry powder (cumin, saffron, turmeric, garlic)
Juice the veggies and stir in the powder
We each drank as much of this juice as we needed.
Doug had about 12 oz. Dougie had about 4 oz and i had about 6 oz. We really didn’t need more.
The key for us is not to feel bloated when drinking, and to moderate our liquid intake so as not to cool down our systems too much, feel cold, have an energy crash or experience frequent urination. These symptoms are a result of over-hydration which I experienced after going all raw vegan for a period that was too long for my body.
By over-hydrating, I actually did to myself what the Chinese Med teachers warned me about– I put out my digestive fire and wound up hungry, losing weight and energy, and being cold all of the time. So, although raw veganism worked for me for a very long time, I’ve had to adjust it to make it more sustainable and this includes moderating liquid intake.
2 cups soaked raw oats
1 cup shredded coconut
Zest of 1 lemon
Handful soaked dates
Juice of 10 lemons
Zest of 2 lemons
2tblsp coconut butter
2 tblsp soaked Irish moss
Blend crust ingredients
Add in some coconut oil to both whirl it around and help it stick together once it’s formed
Form into a 6×8 in pan
Refrigerate crust for about an hour
Blend filling ingredients well, and be sure the Irish moss is completely soaked in
Pour into crust
Refrigerate for a few hours (the Irish moss will help it set really well)
We had some more bone broth throughout the day. This time we seasoned it like French Onion Soup just for fun!
We also ate 3 yummy salads that Doug made with shredded veggies and various delicious combos of herbs and spices.
And then there was quinoa. All 4 of us really felt the need to have the grounding energy of quinoa.
We are really not eating much differently than we usually do. But there is a lot more intent to stay on a high vibrational level.
We made a vision board and are of course seeing exact things come into fruition. This always amazes me!
If you remember that one of our goals was to help Dougie, cognitively. Well, we’ve seen results in the first day. He is truly connecting deeper with concepts we’ve been working– on especially with math.
Healing really happens when you sleep!
When you are awake, your immune system is awake–fighting parasites that threaten your skin, or battling fight or flight situations. But, when you sleep, your immune system goes deep within and can do things like re-populate your gut with healthy bacteria, transfer waste where it needs to go, give your organs a rest and so much more! Many of us are constantly in fight or flight stress mode and cannot heal no matter what good foods we eat.
I am grateful for the intention to get myself out of stress mode and get some real energy back.
I have been able to spend a whole lot more time meditating, and napping together with Dougie each afternoon.
Plus, we have been getting the boy in bed at moonrise. This is an amazing feat. We are very grateful for his new schedule. ;)
We’ll be on touch sharing all we can about how this Bliss Cleanse helps us!
