I know so many of you were wondering what foods I can eat while on The Clean Program I am doing over the next 21 days. Here is a quick break down.
Remember, I have to have a shake or fresh juice for breakfast, lunch with organic foods from approved list and at least 51% raw, and a shake or fresh juice for dinner with small snacks in between like almonds or more fresh juice from veggies on the approved list.
I am happy to see that so many of you are interesting in this program! I have heard from others who have completed the cleanse with AMAZING results!
