Coconut milk, unsweetened: 1/2 cup
Homegrown plum: 1 whole, diced
Coconut oil: 1 tsp

Directions for Chia Porridge:
1. Place chia seeds and coconut milk in a saucepan over low/medium heat, stirring frequently until plump.
2. Add additional ingredients after the chia porridge is added to a bowl.
My Food Choices on the BodyBoost Cleanse:
Typically, I have a breakfast similar to this one. I may have a protein snack (1 medium boiled egg or 1/4 chicken breast) a couple of hours later. Lunch is often a 32 oz blended greens drink and possibly a handful of nuts or a protein snack, depending on what I had earlier in the morning. Dinner includes veggies and a little bit of protein.
The cleanse is actually much easier as it seems. I encourage everyone to try at least the food portion of the cleanse to give the body optimal nutrition and a break from environmental chemicals. Aside from the dietary aspect of the seasonal cleanse, the cleansing practices of the rest of the cleanse simply contributes to whole body wellness and optimal health and vitality.
Sweet and Tart Greens Drink
Blend until smooth and enjoy! My greens drinks are the perfect combo of protein, fat, fiber, and veggie-based carbohydrate. This is the one recommendation that I offer the majority of my patients who are looking to optimize their health and nutrition. Before taking away all of their favorite foods, I start by adding in more nutrition. Before no time, the standard American diet is no longer appealing. Just start with real nutritious foods people!
Cheers to health!
