But if that's true for you, you may wonder how you can maximize enjoyment of those indulgences, and your aunt's award-winning pie, while minimizing the indigestion, bloating, and general lack of well-being that follows a day of over-indulgence.
Easy - schedule a healthy reset for after the feast day!
I suggest checking out Cocobeet's cleanses, because they offer a variety of options to fit whatever your lifestyle and your needs are. I, for one, can't go a whole day without eating.
And I don't want to! Cocobeet's Transition Cleanse is perfect for people like me, who have high energy needs and/or like to eat.
The cleanse features a mix of fruit and vegetable juices, rich smoothies with healthy, filling fats, and raw vegan meals. You'll fuel your body with only healthy foods, to have you feeling like any unhealthy choices you made on the feast day never even happened, but you won't have to go hungry.
With their emphasis on organic, unprocessed, plant-based foods, you can be sure that your body will enjoy Cocobeet as much as you will!
Cocobeet's cleanses take all the guesswork out of a healthy reset and they're incredibly convenient. If you're local to the Boston metro area or Cambridge, you'll receive your order by bicycle!
If you're outside of the delivery area, don't worry - Cocobeet ships its cleanses nationwide!
All the foods are and smoothies and juices are absolutely delicious to boot! Here's is the 'live' journal-style review of my experience.
5:30am - I woke up hungry. As always. I am not a breakfast-skipper. Without breakfast, nothing works for me! Luckily, there's a drink to have right upon waking - the Heartbeet Power Booster.
I'm not generally a big beet girl, but Heartbeet is made of beet, coconut water, lime, and spirulina. The combination of flavors works really well and I was surprised to find that the sweetness from the beet was enough to make it a nice sweet drink. Yum!
It also stained my mouth a lovely cherry red, so this one doubles as a cosmetic! Kidding...kinda (hey, I don't wear much makeup, okay?).
8am - You get to head into the morning with solid food in your stomach on this cleanse! And food that tastes like dessert, at that.
11am - I was looking forward to trying the Cocobeet Green Genes juice, because I'm a big fan of green juices. This one features kale, spinach, cucumber, celery, apple, parsley, lemon, and ginger.
Made from over 5 pounds of fruits and vegetables, it's definitely very nutrient-rich and not at all watery!
4pm - I'm still not hungry, surprisingly, but I am starting to feel a little peckish, so I reach for the next drink. Cocobeet's Kickstart perfectly satisfies the mid-afternoon munchies!
It's very sweet and thick, more like a sweet smoothie than a juice, and really filling. I have to drink it slowly, but I'm happy to because it's absolutely delicious!
The juice is recommended as a post-workout recovery drink when not enjoyed as part of a cleanse and I can see why. It gives me an almost immediate boost of energy and leaves me full and happy. 10/10 I would buy it again!
6pm - I've enjoyed my juices and not been ravenous at all during the day, but I do miss chewing so I'm looking forward to having the vegan Kale & Microgreens Salad for dinner!
