The popularity of juice cleansing is no secret, but did you know that there are ways to cleanse with whole foods that are just as effective (if not more so!)?
Beaming is a California based superfood cafe with locations in Del Mar & Los Angeles. Everything there is organic, gluten & dairy free, plant-based and non-GMO. Since discovering their Montana Ave location, I’ve become a regular. As a certified wellness coach, eating well is important to me, but as the daughter of a chef, so is flavor! You can tell that Beaming’s founder, Lisa Odenweller, feels the same way. Everything I’ve ever ordered there is both exceptionally healthy and delicious. Needless to say, I was very excited when they offered to let me try one of their unique cleanse programs that revolve around whole superfoods.
They have 3 different cleanses to choose from based on your needs: Lean, Lifestyle and Active. You can order the 3 or 5 day version from anywhere in the US, and if you’re local to San Diego or LA there are options for a 4, 10 or 21 day version as well. I personally went for the 3 day Lifestyle cleanse.
I finished day 3 on Wednesday and loved it. Every day I got 2 cold pressed juices, a superfood protein smoothie, a soup, a superfood elixir, a salad, and (on some days) a superfood protein bite. They also include a packet of their loose leaf Cleanse & Balance tea to sip on throughout the day. Other than the tea, I’m pretty sure every item was different every day. Not only did it keep things interesting, but I really felt like I was getting an extraordinary variety of nutrients. It was the first time that I’ve ever done a cleanse and thought, “that was easy”, while still feeling all of the benefits of cleansing.
Their cleanses show you what it feels like to eat extremely delicious and nutritious food in realistic ways. Between juices, smoothies, soups and salads you’re able to see all of the possibilities for healthy eating, and it seems easy to continue to eat well every day thereafter. I honestly can’t imagine ever doing a just juice cleanse again.
