Course Description

The more that we eat healthy whole foods, the more that the body starts to crave them. However, the challenge is taking the first steps. Those first few days are the most challenging as the body adjusts to the changes you are making. This group challenge is the perfect way to stay motivated while learning easy and delicious recipes to make the transition a bit easier.

The goal of our clean eating challenge will be to fill our diet with fresh vegetables, fruits, legumes, and healthy grains such as quinoa, spelt, oats, and more. At the same time we will be working to reduce or eliminate processed foods, sugar, gluten, and dairy. This is not a strict diet, but rather a support group to support each other in our own goals. So if your dietary plans are slightly different you are still welcome to participate based on your own goals.

The 10-Day Clean Eating Challenge Includes:

  • Comprehensive Workbook
  • Collection of Healthy Recipes
  • Daily Physical Exercise Challenges
  • Mantras & Meditations
  • Online Support Group
