    New Year’s RAWvolution: 3 part series

    by  • January 2, 2015 • Uncategorized • 0 Comments

    I don’t know about you, but I know I sure could use a fresh start when it comes to my eating habits.  The holidays are so hectic and all of our celebrating is centered around food … and not usually the healthy kind.

    1 week high raw vegan • 3 days high fruit • 3 days juice fast • daily support in Facebook group

    Take the first 3 weeks of January to ease into a cleanse that will leave you feeling lighter, brighter & clearer. Your body will thank you, I promise!  And we’ll have a blast together.  🙂  You can check out the details on the cleanse here.

    If you are in the greater Portland, Maine area I recommend you join me in person for the 3 part series & if that is not an option then why not partake in the virtual online series (join anytime this week)?

    The cleanse officially begins Tues, Jan 6th!  What are you waiting for?!  Let’s get this 2015 RAWvolution started!

    Week 1 – Raw until 5pm – Learn about raw vegan meal prep & how to enjoy this nourishing lifestyle everyday until 5pm, after which you may choose to enjoy a vegan cooked meal or continue all raw.  We will make & sample several recipes.  You will leave with a meal plan.

    Week 2 – Get Fruity & Juicy –  Take your raw food cleanse to the next level by enjoying several days of a high fruit diet followed by a 1-3 day supported juice feast.  We will make & sample several recipes.  You will leave with a meal/juice plan.
    Week 3 – How to incorporate more raw into your everyday life –  We will share our journeys with one another & talk about how to make raw vegan living accessible to you in your everyday life.  We will make & sample several recipes.  You will leave with a meal/juice plan.
