If you’re worried about the food— remember: this is what I do. I’m a best-selling cookbook author! I make tasty recipes that transform your body! Unlike most cleanse programs out there, mine doesn’t require you to buy any powders or supplements to complete the cleanse. I want you to buy fresh fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds to get back to eating real foods that do your body some serious good.

Ruth Fink

let’s stop the dieting

The plant-based cleanse provides maximum nourishment & builds the foundation for long-lasting, clean-eating habits to restore your body’s natural ability to heal thyself.

What do you eat on a cleanse?

During the Plant-Based Cleanse, you’ll be removing hard-on-your-body foods like coffee, sugar, meat, dairy, etc., and adding in more leafy greens, produce, healthy fats and plant-based proteins. When you do this, you’re not only doing yourself a favor by paying careful attention to your body, but you’re also boosting your metabolism and re-balancing your vitamin and mineral intake.

BREAKFAST
metabolism teas & healing smoothies

SNACKS
protein bars & fruit bowls

DINNER
hearty soups & veggie bowls

Ingredients You’ll Embrace

  • Coconut water:  This drink is often considered nature’s Gatorade, providing essential electrolytes to hydrate from the inside out. If you don’t love the taste, feel free to dilute it with water.
  • Fresh herbs, especially cilantro, are known for their detoxifying abilities, particularly chelating heavy metals. Mint is wonderful for bloating and relaxation.
  • Fruit is a wonderful natural sweetener and contains fiber, which helps slow down the absorption of sugar into your bloodstream. Fruit contains essential vitamins, minerals and supports hydration. We’ll use more low-sugar fruits, like strawberries, blueberries and peaches to blend into smoothies.
  • Ginger is an inflammation fighter, brings warmth and energy to the digestive system and calms the stomach.
  • Healthy fats are used by the body as a source of fuel to stimulate metabolism and also help your body absorb all the awesome nutrients you’re consuming. Coconut oil, avocado and olive oil are incorporated into the Plant-Based Cleanse.
  • Leafy greens contain phytonutrients and fiber that are great for digestion. Spinach, kale, chard and parsley also help cleanse your body and keep your liver happy and healthy. Between smoothies, salads and veggie bowls, you’ll use a variety of leafy greens while cleansing. 
  • Lemons are an excellent source of vitamin C and antioxidants, which help remove free radicals that can damage cells from the body. Using freshly squeezed lemon juice in a tea helps activate your digestive system and push out toxins.
  • Natural sweeteners are used to add nutrients and energy to recipes. You’ll use maple syrup, honey, pineapple and bananas to create tasty meals and curb any sugar cravings.
  • Nuts and seeds are high in protein, healthy fats, calcium, iron and magnesium. We’ll use walnuts, cashews, almonds, pepitas and sunflower seeds to add plant-based protein and crunch to dishes.
  • Vegetables are packed with fiber, low in sugar and contain essential vitamins and minerals. They taste great seasoned with herbs, spices and sauces. Enjoy a variety of cauliflower, celery, carrots, bell peppers, broccoli and sweet potato as we season them to perfection with sea salt, black pepper and a variety of spices.

Foods to Avoid on the Cleanse

It’s important to not think of cleansing as food deprivation. Instead, focus on food replacement.We season every recipe with a variety of spices, herbs, and superfoods to make every bite taste incredible. That’s just the beginning! You’ll also learn how to prep ahead, stay hydrated, learn when to eat and happily watch your body transform before your eyes just by eating more plants.

Here’s what we remove and why...

  • Refined Sugars: Refined sugar is acidic, highly addictive and can contribute to mood problems, weight gain and tooth decay. It also leads to spikes in our blood sugar, giving us false “highs,” followed by crashes in energy that leave us more tired than we were to begin with.
  • Gluten: Being one of the most common food allergies out there, gluten is a protein composite that creates a sticky substance in the gut and takes significantly more energy for the body to digest. We’ll avoid foods like wheat, rye, barley, oats and other grains.
  • Legumes: Lentils, beans and peanuts are avoided while cleansing because of their high content of lectins and phytic acid.
  • Caffeine: Caffeine messes with your sleep, stress levels, adrenal glands and gut with a “high” that can also irritate your nervous system. The artificial additives and sweeteners in soda are also neurotoxins and have been linked to bone loss — yikes!
  • Alcohol: Did you know alcohol wreaks havoc on your body’s natural blood sugar regulation, which stimulates cravings for sugar and carbohydrates? It also interferes with nutrient absorption and is toxic to the liver.
  • Dairy: the #1 food sensitivity is dairy, which comes in many forms such as milk, cream, cheese, butter, yogurt. Avoiding them for a week can give you remarkable results, just wait.
  • Meat: Meat can take up to four full days to get through your digestive system. This cleanse is full of fast-moving and easy-going foods, which is why our cleanse is 100% plant-based recipes.

As hard as the elimination part of the cleanse may be, it’s also quite rewarding. Over time, your body becomes reliant on these things to get you through the morning, your 3pm slump, or help you unwind at the end of the day. So naturally, when you detox from them, you’ll experience some withdrawal symptoms usually around the second or third day of the cleanse. Promise, it’s absolutely worth it when your energy levels rise, sleep quality improves and the digestive system heals. Your kitchen will become your farmacy, healing your amazing body from the inside out.

My home is stocked with all the good foods my body needs. I no longer eat or even crave sugar (which was my biggest downfall). My blood sugar levels are down and I am off some of my meds. I am enjoying the recipes and the energy I have gained. Thank you for adding years to my life!

I am 69, and I can honestly say, I wish I had known about this in my 40’s. Adopting this lifestyle would have saved years of misery and expense due to medical issues.

Valerie Rodriguez

Daphne, AL

I needed this right now, all of it! This is so much more than a “diet” or even a health plan. It’s a way of life. I’m sleeping better, feeling better and hey, I’ve dropped 5 pounds without ever once feeling deprived. Loved the amazing recipes. Many will be in permanent rotation.

How often should I cleanse?

This Plant-Based Cleanse can be the catalyst to a healthier, lighter, more energized YOU! With more energy and less weight, you’ll understand why eating plant-based is amazing. You can do this cleanse every season, if you wish (which is what I do).

It’s not easy to eat 100% plant-based all the time with busy lives and unexpected stress. We all fall off the healthy eating wagon… which is why I recommend doing a cleanse each season. This helps you get back on track, build on the habits you have embraced and see momentum.

Our cleanse plan is 100% plant-based and designed to give your body a break from caffeine, sugars and processed foods while loading up on satisfying, nutrient-rich meals. Use these seven days as a quick transition to jump start your journey to health.

To help your body push out chemicals, additives, and toxins in your body, you’ll be filling up your
plate with foods that support detoxification and reduce inflammation. Get ready for fiber-rich veggies (seasoned like a pro chef!), fresh fruits, nuts and seeds, green smoothies, and herbal teas to detox from within.

Eat More Plants. However. Whenever…you can.

Studies continue to show how impactful this simple change can be on your body, mindset and longevity. We can’t afford NOT to try this way of eating and living.

Remember, this cleanse is about loving yourself inside and out! So be gentle and gracious. Cleansing takes time and can use up your energy. Rest up, eat up and slow down your lifestyle as needed.

Bottom line: Allow the cleanse to do the work. Don’t push yourself too hard physically. Take the break you deserve. Once you’re through the cleanse, your skin will start to glow, bloating will diminish, and energy levels will go through the roof. You’re literally about to eat your way to a rawkin’ body that’ll equip you to go after the things you want in life. From playing tag with the kids to traveling to Italy to growing a backyard garden— having the energy and strength to do those things starts with what you’re eating.

Common Questions

What if I can’t have certain nuts, veggies, fruits, etc.?

If you want the full benefit of cleansing your body, stick with the plan as close as possible. The meal plan was crafted by our holistic nutritionist for optimal cleansing. This is not a vacation, it’s a cleanse. Yet of course if you truly cannot stand cilantro, turmeric or fennel, you can substitute them out for something you do enjoy, or choose another meal.

What are the side effects of the cleanse?

You may experience short-term symptoms like: headaches, bloating, muscle cramps, skin irritations, fatigue, irritability, mood swings, or change in bowel frequency. These symptoms are completely normal and expected.

It usually takes between 2-5 days to complete the withdrawal phase of the cleanse, yet it’s absolutely worth it. Giving your body a break from stimulants will allow your organs to heal and your body to recharge fully. Remember, these symptoms are proof that the cleanse is working and your body is getting the care it needs.

How long will I be in the kitchen for each meal?

You’ll definitely spend more time in the kitchen throughout the cleanse. In some ways, this is like a crash course plant-based cooking school. I highly suggest following our prep guide to make most of the smoothies, snacks and meals over the weekend. Set aside 3-5 hours on Sunday to prepare the recipes for the week and you should be good to go.

I have a crazy busy schedule, is this realistic for me?

We know all about busy schedules which is why we’ve provided a weekend prep guide that saves you tons of time during the week. Yet, I wouldn’t suggest doing a cleanse in the middle of a highly stressful time.
The cleanse gives you a wonderful opportunity to really listen to your body. It’s an individual experience that differs for everyone. Depending on the level of toxicity in your body, there may be some less- than-amazing symptoms in the first 3–5 days, such as headaches, nausea, fatigue, skin irritations, etc. Once you hit day five, these should only be distant memories, and you’ll be well on your way to greatness. But some people sail through the entire cleansing period with no side effects at all. You may feel amazing throughout the entire cleanse, or your energy may wax and wane a little.

Will I be hungry while on the cleanse?

This cleanse is not designed to starve you, and you’re not limited in the number of times you eat, or the amount you eat – only in what you eat. If you do get hunger pangs, make sure that you’re really hungry, and not just bored or thirsty. If it’s a case of real hunger, go for one of the snack recipes, a piece of fruit, or a small
handful of nuts, or seeds. One tip to avoid hunger is to chew your green smoothie. This may sound silly, but the chewing action signals your body that food is on the way, and triggers the digestive processes.

Is this safe to cleanse while pregnant or nursing?

Pregnancy is not the ideal time to start our cleanse. Although our cleanse is nutrient rich and nutritionally balanced, it will also be detoxifying. Toxins released during the cleanse can pass through to your bloodstream and breast milk. Instead, focus on nourishing your body and your baby. Use our Rawk the Year Meal Planner to get weekly meal plans that support your health goals through the early stages of motherhood.

Who shouldn’t do a cleanse?

You should avoid cleansing in the following situations: advanced cancer, under 16 years of age, if you have an eating disorder, kidney or liver disease, and if you’re underweight. If you have a blood sugar regulation issue (diabetes, hyperglycemia, hypoglycemia) or any other medical condition, you should seek your doctor’s advice before undertaking a cleanse.

Can I workout during the cleanse?

You may find that you have more energy than normal—and more motivation! Why waste it?
Get moving! Be mindful that you may need to take it down a notch though. If you normally exercise fairly intensely, reduce your output until you feel strong and energized.

If you don’t normally work out, you would do well to include some regular walking, yoga, swimming or gardening during this time. Try to sneak in some incidental exercise, such as getting off the train or bus one or two stops early and walking the rest of the way. Or park further away from the entrance to the shopping center and walk.

Can my husband do this with me?

Absolutely. My husband loves our cleanses thanks to the clear meal plans, tasty recipes and the results he gets. Like most men, the weight just seems to fall off just by saying “I’m in!” You’ll need to double the grocery list and recipes to make enough for you both.

What if I don’t like the cleanse?

We offer a 7-day money back guarantee. This gives you time to review the program with your medical team, try a few recipes and decide if this cleanse is for you.

Do you have different cleanses?

Due to demand, we’ve created seasonal plant-based cleanse programs that celebrate each season with specific ingredients. The smoothie, snack and meal recipes in the programs are completely different, giving you variety of recipes and supporting a seasonal approach to eating clean throughout the year.
