That’s the first thought that comes to people’s minds when they are about to embark on a clean eating/detox plan of any type. I am participating in Egan’s Fit Body Bootcamp’s 4-Week Body Burn Plan which means no alcohol, no caffeine, no sugar, and no processed foods. There are many plans like this and for good reason – these things can wreak havoc on our bodies and taking a break from these toxins can give our systems a chance to rebalance and reboot to optimum health and performance. Thanks to the growing awareness of the negative impact of processed foods and animal products on our health (and planet), there are amazing resources to help make following a plan like this a piece of raw, vegan, gluten-free cake.
So for all of my fellow Bootcampers who are wondering, “OMG! What am I going to eat?” Here is a list of resources and inspiration for you. By focusing on what you CAN have instead of what you CAN’T, you will see that eating CLEAN can actually be a fun, enjoyable adventure that will have your body/mind/spirit humming at it’s highest vibration!
