The 21-day ‘conscious cleanse’: is it for me?

February 22nd, 2016 by Tonya

The countdown to our annual 21-day 'conscious cleanse' begins in just under two weeks. To give you some idea of whether you'd like to join us for the cleanse, here's what it entails.

The 21-day cleanse… is it for me?

As I mentioned in a post last week, our 21-day 'conscious cleanse' consists of gradually taking out of the diet all those foods - and drinks - that may be 'fighting' with the body, ie, pretty much anything that doesn't occur in nature or that may be difficult for your body to digest. The ten days before the diet begins (ie, from Monday March 30th) we use to psychologically and physically prepare for our new way of eating and drinking Read More...

To your radiant health! A first cappuccino with friend Alex at Cafe Mila in Godalming - my favourite coffee house of-the-moment. And boy, didn't it taste good!

The road to heaven... ... is paved with good intentions! With three more days of the detox diet to go, today might be a good time to reflect on what the diet has done for us - and to set some intentions for positive changes we'd like to make in our lives as a result. We've gone to the trouble of disciplining our diet for, let's see Read More...

Day 18 – 21 day detox

March 23rd, 2012 by Tonya

Takin' it slow Weaning ourselves off the detox diet needs to be undertaken with as much sensitivity as we undertook the process of taking the foods out of our diets in the first place. Take it slow. Be gentle (more…)

Day 17 – 21 day detox

March 22nd, 2012 by Tonya

Five days to go So, there are only five more days of the detox diet programme to go! How do you feel? Are you managing to stick to the diet for the most part, or have you succumbed to more off-limits culinary delicacies than you would care to admit?
