I didn’t forget about you my little cleansers. I am in Rancho La Puerta at a world-renowned spa and fitness facility. It is absolutely breathtaking. Amber is amazing and we are having a blast. I wanted to quickly post a few recipes so you didn’t feel like I was throwing you to the wolves. You should still be following the daily routine and making sure that you are engaging in some sort of cleansing activities. This could be :
- Hot Yoga
I did a colonic on Friday and it was absolutely amazing. My colonic therapist was thrilled that I was cleansing and she could see a huge difference in my digestive track because it seemed to be flushing beautifully. She also applauded me for all the water I had been drinking. The cleanse is proving to be a success. Not to mention how GREAT I feel.
On to the recipes: (courtesy of Crazy Sexy Diet, with a few additions by me)

My internet is limited here on the ranch in Baja, California but I will try my hardest to do another post providing you with more cleanse approved recipes. I can’t wait to post all about my adventure here at Rancho La Puerta. I have already learned so much in being here just one day.
The best six doctors anywhere
And no one can deny it
Are sunshine, water, rest, and air
Exercise and diet.
These six will gladly you attend
If only you are willing
Your mind they’ll ease
Your will they’ll mend
And charge you not a shilling.
~Nursery rhyme quoted by Wayne Fields, What the River Knows, 1990
