Day 7 of the Clean Program’s 7-Day Clean Cleanse!
Since I am used to doing this cleanse for 21 days, one week was nothin 😉 Here is how it typically goes…
Day 1: This is fun.
Day 2: Damnit I could really use a coffee. I also can’t stop thinking about Skittles.
Days 3 & 4: I’m still a little low on energy, but getting the hang of it.
Days 5-7: I’m in a routine, I’m feeling good, and now I remember why I love this program 🙂
Overall, the best thing about the 7-day Clean cleanse is that you can kick some bad habits in only one week! For me, it’s typically sugar and snacking when I don’t need to. When my body learns that I don’t “need” these things, it helps me to better keep a realistic balance between eating clean and treating myself. What I did notice this time around is how thirsty I am! I am drinking water like crazy. I emailed one of the girls from Clean and she told me that because my body is releasing toxins, a natural thirst is triggered so it can flush what is coming out. Makes sense.
This Chocolate Avocado Protein Smoothie is definitely on the decadent side. It’s super creamy and delicious. I normally make this with banana, however because I was on the cleanse this week I just replaced the banana with frozen peaches.
Cleansing doesn’t look so bad now does it? 🙂
- 10oz unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- 1 scoop of chocolate protein (or 1 Clean chocolate protein packet)
- 1 frozen banana (if cleansing use peaches or mango)
- 1/2 avocado, flesh scooped out
- 1 scoop of almond butter or natural peanut butter
- Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth
