What is an Ayurvedic-inspired cleanse?
A simple Ayurvedic cleanse aims to balance agni. Agni, means fire, and in this case directly refers to our metabolic fire, the strength of our ability to digest what we take in. This includes our diet, of course, but also our experiences in life. A simple way to improve agni is to fast or eat lightly for short periods of time. This cleanse uses principles of Ayurveda to help you get back in touch with your body, teaching you the fundamental tools for boosting digestion, creating a healing plant-based diet, and holistic body care techniques to keep the body, mind and spirit balanced through the winter. In this two-week cleanse, you’ll learn the in-depth knowledge on holistic nutrition and seasonal wellness through a series live webinars and daily emails that guide you through a whole food plant-based cleanse at home. You’ll also learn simple yoga practices to balance the body and boost digestion, meditation tools to take with you even beyond your cleanse. By the end of this 3-part cleanse, you’ll leave feeling clean, clear and strong as you kick off the new season.
What is a kitchari and how does it work?
Kitchari is an ancient healing combination of mung beans, rice and spices. Eaten at times when the immune system is compromised or for special seasonal cleansing purposes, you can think of kitchari as the Ayurvedic (and vegetarian!) equivalent to chicken noodle soup. Nourishing for mind, body and soul, kitchari kicks up the metabolism and immune system. This simple one pot meal is easy to make and to digest, allowing the body to use less energy on digestive functions, and more on clearing and metabolizing ama (toxins) from the body. The combination of rice and mung beans makes a complete protein, meaning you will get enough nutrients to sustain a restful daily routine from this dish alone. The spices like ginger, turmeric, coriander, cumin and fennel, are anti-inflammatory and cleanse the blood, burn up toxins and improve agni. It is also alkaline for the body, assisting in lowering acidity of the blood and creating overall balance in our bodies.
Do I need a juicer or any special kitchen tools?
This is a whole food-based program, so no juicer or fancy kitchen equipment is required for this cleanse. The only tools you’ll need are your favorite knife, a few cooking pots, an oven/stovetop, and an open mind! While I do provide some recipes that use a blender, these are optional and not required to complete your cleanse experience.
How does this work with my busy lifestyle? How much time do I need to devote to this?
I get it, we all have a lot on our plates. Why would you want to add yet another thing to think about and do in your day? This cleanse is designed to declutter the busy from your life and give you more space to say yes to that much needed you time. During the program, you’ll learn tools that will help implement a solid daily routine, streamline your flow in the kitchen, and explore lifestyle practices that actually give you more energy to get it all done. Like anything, you get out of it what you put in. If you can devote 1-2 hours for yourself each day to do the self-care practices, cook a mindful meal at home, and try a guided meditation or two, you’ll be on the fast track to a more rejuvenated you. If the scheduled dates of the program don’t work for you, not a problem. Once you sign up, you receive access to all the materials and recorded webinars so you can move at your own pace and explore the cleanse at home. You will have email support from your cleanse guide, no matter what time you start your program.
