yumyoga 5-Day Cleanse, Day 4: Raw

Posted by: Rita in: ● April 12, 2011

Congratulations! You’ve made it through 3 whole days of focus and commitment to your health! In my opinion, the tough part is over, and the next two days are a piece of cake (a healthy, vegan cake that is…)

Day 1: Juice

Day 2: Smoothies

Day 3: Apples

Day 4: Raw… uncooked fruits, vegetables and raw nuts and seeds

Day 5: Vegan… no animal products (meat, fish, eggs or dairy)

Massaged Arugula Salad

Today, we’ll continue to reintroduce plant fiber back to the body, along with variety. We can have any fruit, vegetable, or nut, as long as it is in its’ pure, raw, uncooked form (no roasted nuts, for example… speaking of nuts, go easy on them as they are harder to digest than the fruits and veggies).

Below is what your Day 4 could look like (all recipes found on www.yumyoga.com):

Breakfast: Tropical Green Monster Smoothie

Snack: 8-12 raw almonds, or handful of cashews or walnuts

Lunch: Massaged Arugula Salad

Dessert: 2-3 medjool dates with raw almond butter

Snack: Raw Zucchini Hummus with baby carrots

Dinner: Large Mixed Green Salad with Rita’s Famous Guacamole

Dessert: Live Choconana Mousse

“Dessert?” you ask… why yes, please, enjoy your dessert! When you are eating raw desserts, they are good for you, so no need to feel guilty!

Have fun experimenting with different fruits, vegetables and nuts… if there’s a raw food restaurant near you, I  highly recommend checking it out, you’ll be shocked at the magnificent things they will have to offer.

Continue to drink lots and lots of water, and get your zzzzz’s… you’ve got one more day left of the Cleanse after today. On Day 5, Vegan day, we’ll add grains and start to consume some cooked vegetables, beans and legumes.
