yumyoga 5-Day Cleanse, Day 5: Vegan

Posted by: Rita in: ● April 13, 2011

Hello Cleansers! This is IT…

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)

Montana Salad from Jivamukti Cafe... you can do this yourself, it is mixed greens and lots of fresh veggies, black beans, and quinoa

On the fifth and last day of our cleanse and after 3 days of relatively limited consumption, Day 4 felt like a free-for-all… which means Day 5 will be just as fun as we add grains and cooked vegetables and legumes back into our diet.

As yesterday, feel free to eat everything you’ve eaten/drank up until now in the Cleanse… all the juices and smoothies are great for you so feel free to keep those if you enjoyed them.

Here’s an example of what your day may look like:

Breakfast: Smoothie made from pear, blueberry, walnut, chia seed, spinach & almond milk

Snack: Carrot-Apple Juice

Lunch: Salad with lots of veggies (fresh or roasted) and quinoa.

Dessert: 2-3 dates (I posted this for Day 4 too, I like it dates so much)

Snack: Celery with almond butter

Dinner: Butternut squash & soy bean curry over brown rice

Dessert: 3 squares of 70% or higher dark chocolate

Butternut Squash and Soybean Curry

Sounds pretty great, doesn’t it? That’s because it is! Keep eating as many fruits and veggies as you can today, try to get to 8-9 servings total, and work the grains, nuts, seeds, beans around the veggies. Keep drinking water! Your body will thank you. Your energy level should be wonderful today… and you should feel like a full-on rock star for making it to Day 5. Awesome!

Reward yourself with a great night’s sleep so you can start Day 1 post-cleanse still feeling awesome and committed to staying mindful of what you consume and how you consume it. Namaste friends!
