21 Day Vegan Cleanse Review!

25

I was super intimidated by this program. I looked at it for probably 2 years before I purchased it. It seemed SCARY! I mean, it’s mostly vegan and it’s a cleanse so it can’t be fun, right?? Wrong!! I am actually sad that I didn’t do the Ultimate Reset sooner! It was a great experience and I learned so so much from it. The food was way better than I was expecting and there was a ton of it!

Ultimate Reset: Week 3 Recap

24

This week has been the most difficult. For the most part my positive mood continued throughout the week. I had a couple of moments where I just wasn’t having any fun. But, they passed quickly. And it was usually around meal time when I just wasn’t in the mood for what I had planned. No bloating this week which was great! I felt super light and fresh. No heavy feeling after meals. But, I have learned that I am not cut out for a fruits & veggies only diet. I love my grains and they make me happy. Continue reading “Ultimate Reset: Week 3 Recap”

Ultimate Reset: Day 21

Recap: Oh my goodness…. it’s finally here!!! The last day of my Ultimate Reset! Whew! It has been quite the journey! I have been vegan (except for a piece of bread) for the last 17 days! It might not sound like much, but it was a pretty big deal for me. I’ve never even spent an entire day as a vegan before this program! Even when I was a vegetarian, I still ate eggs and cheese. It has been a great learning experience, but I’m so glad it’s over!! Now, I get to slowly add things back into my diet and see how my body reacts. Continue reading “Ultimate Reset: Day 21”
