In this summer weather, it's a great time of year to re-energize, slim down, and raw reboot!
In many ancient cultures (including Chinese medicine, ancient Indian ayurveda, German traditions, & many South American cultures) cleansing is done with the change of the seasons. As the climate shifts our bodies are also changing and it's great to give the digestive system and bit of a break so it can focus on elimination and purification to re-energize the body during the transitional periods.
This is a great opportunity to drop any weight you might have accumulated, give your body a break from certain substances and foods, and take some time to replenish and rejuvenate your body for summer.
The 5-day Raw Food Cleanse is made easy for you so you can focus on you, and still be taken very well care of. Simply pop into merge each night Sunday through Thursday and pick up your dinner and a fresh juice daily. (*Meal pick up times are 4-6pm each day at merge - 439 Delaware Avenue, Buffalo, NY 14201)In addition, you'll receive an e-book, 15+ page pamphlet of information with a cleanse outline, recipes for simple breakfast smoothies, snacks, and salads for lunch, and lots of tips and preparation.
This is a cleanse of abundance, you can eat as much fresh fruit, vegetables, nuts and seeds as you like. It's not about going hungry, but changing the fuel that you are putting into your body. Many people have noted that they fill up on these foods much quickly than processed foods, so you might naturally eat less calories, and you'll process them much differently. All of these meals and juices are organic, with as much local produce as possible, and you can even connect on Facebook in a private group with others who are cleansing so you reach out for support, ask questions, and feel accountable to the group!
