Last week Connie and a number of our graduates did a 7-day cleanse. The results are in and everyone feels better for it.
One thing that everyone liked about the cleanse was that it wasn't restrictive. You could eat as much as you felt like. All the recipes were very High Nutrient Dense with mostly high water content veggies and fruit, so nobody felt hungry and everyone lost weight.
The other thing that was common was that everyone felt more energy. Isn't that interesting? The recipes in this cleanse were low in calorie dense foods like potato, grains and beans, which are the energy producers, but still everyone felt energized.

The cleanse was a real testament to the value of High Nutrient Dense whole plant foods and their power to support our natural cleansing systems, particularly the liver, kidneys and spleen. When we give our bodies what they need to perform the way they're designed to, we feel great. And that was the bottom line for everyone who did this.

The recipe this week is the watermelon salad that we used on the cleanse. It's amazing! It includes Jalapeno, Strawberries, Cucumber, Basil, Pumpkin Seeds and Lime.
To your Amazing Health,
Connie and Bill
