LPB DETOX CHALLENGE: WHAT'S ON THE MENU - WEEK 1

Week 1 of our LPB Detox Challenge is nearly over and you ask what's on the menu? Here you have the full lowdown on Week 1 Protocol and what we really think about it.

WEEK 1 PROTOCOL


Clockwise From Left to Right: Arise & Shine Bentonite, Arise & Shine Mix Cup, Karyn's Lemon DressingDulse Flakes, Manna Bread, Karyn's Flax Oil, Lecithin, Rejuvelac, Fenugreek Seed Capsules, Karyn's Kare Kamut, Karyn's Kare Green Meal, Karyn's Kare Enzyme, Psyllium

Before officially starting my detox I received a box filled with the yummy vegan goodness you see above. Along with the parcel was Karyn's Detox Book Volume 1 which included Week 1 Protocol Sheets and the DVD package. Karyn&Co. gives a full detail description of each item, it's benefit and when it should be consume so you are not left wondering or confused. The whole process truly is a piece of cake (no pun intended) as long as you take the time to invest in yourself (rule #3).  For the most part I eat fairly healthy (my love of brie and cupcakes notwithstanding) so adjusting my lifestyle has been (so far) easy  but I did worry about not liking the food and boy was I wrong!  Being a raw food vegan isn't as difficult as it sounds. Karen recommends before heading out to eat beforehand and when meeting with friends suggest doing activities other then drinks or dining (my favorite option - pottery painting).  What I've taken away from my 1st week is that being healthy takes time, effort and truly being mindful about what you consume.

Karyn's Kare Green Meal, from $33.95

Benefits: Raw Superfood - it improves the metabolism and the absorption of calcium
Detox Time: Usually 1st meal of the day but can be consumed anytime
LPB Notes: LOVE IT! Combined with the Flax Oil and Lecithin this meal is the perfect breakfast (in my book & on my blog-- I said it!). As a shake it's rich, filling and sweet -  I wish I discovered it years ago. It will become a mainstay in my diet.
* Karyn Tip* : If you have to shake & go it's best to use a glass bottle - the chemicals from plastic bottles compromise the nutrients and we don't want that do we?  

Karyn's Kare Flax Oil, $16.91

Benefits: The Flax Oil is filled with omega 3 & 6 along with fatty acids - essentials nutrients for a healthy mind, body and spirit.
Detox Time: Use the Flax Oil with the Green Meal for the delicious Green Meal Shake.
LPB Notes: Flax Oil helps lower cholesterol, prevents heart disease, and a slew of other health problems - the oil does not compromise the shake - has no bad aftertaste and is good for you ... case close!

Karyn's Kare Enzyme, from $23.95

Benefits: Raw Superfood - it improves the metabolism and the absorption of calcium
Detox Time: Usually 1st meal of the day but can be consumed anytime
LPB Notes: LOVE IT! Combined with the Flax Oil and Lecithin this meal is the perfect breakfast (in my book & on my blog-- I said it!). As a shake it's rich, filling and sweet -  I wish I discovered it years ago. It will become a mainstay in my diet.
* Karyn Tip* : If you have to shake & go it's best to use a glass bottle - the chemicals from plastic bottles compromise the nutrients and we don't want that do we?  

Karyn's Kare Fenugreek Seed Capsules, $8.95
Product: Karyn's Kare Fenugreek Seed Capsules
BenefitsFenegreek loosen and expels mucous, dead waste matter and toxins through lymphatic systems. It also balances the blood sugar levels.
Detox Time: Take 3 capsules 2 times a day. Karyn recommends taking it morning and early evening.
LPB Notes: The capsules are easy to swallow the benefits along make it a keeper. Just remember to take them!

Karyn's Kare Organic Kamut, $36.95
  Product: Karyn's Kare Organic Kamut
Benefits: The Karyn's Kare Organic Kamut draws out poisons, building up the blood by repairing the white blood cells. It also stimulates energy.
Detox Time:  Take throughout the day.
LPB Notes: I prefer to mix the drink (2 tbsp of Kamut with 32oz. of H2O) in the blender as Karyn suggested. I do feel l more energized throughout the day. It's become my go to drink after my daily meditation sessions - there's something soothing about this detoxifying drink.  The taste isn't bitter and can travel well (in a glass or aluminum bottle). 

Karyn's Kare Gourmet Psyllium, $18.95

Benefits: The Psyllium - Bentonite cocktail cleanses and purifies the colon from mucous-forming toxic waste. It also absorbs and aids in drawing out stool.
Detox Time: Take last thing at night. Wait at least 40 minutes before and after eating or drinking other foods.
LPB Notes: The drink has no taste and best if you drink it as soon as you mix it. Last night I made the mistake and let the drink sit for a second. It instantly turned into goo and was extremely extremely extremely (did I say extremely) difficult to drink! I've learned my lesson and from now on it's 1, 2, 3 & DRINK!!!!
* Karyn Tip* :  Karyn provides you with the Arise & Shine mix cup along with a top. On the DVD she advises you to prepare the drink in the cup - shake it and drink instantly. Do not let the drink sit or shake it too much - you will have a gooey goo libation that will not be a pleasurable experience (see above). The Bentonite can be used as a facial mask.

Here are additional products that were not pictured but were on the menu:
Product: Karyn's Kare Rejuvelac
Benefits: Rejuvelac helps clean the intestinal tract by loosening mucus, and it is good for stress. It contains protein, enzymes, and vitamin B12. It is a non-dairy form of lactobacillus.
Detox Time: Drink two 8oz. glasses per day or as much as you like. It can replace water.
LPB NotesRejuvelac taste a bit like an extra tart lemonade. It took me a few days to like the drink but I have since been  become acclimated to the taste and drink the required amount. I also use it in the Green Meal Shake too. Rejuvelac is like a wonder juice  - it refuels you after a workout and while I was crazed with traveling this drink helped with my digestion.

Product: Millet Rice Manna Bread, $4.49 
Benefits: This high fiber, yeast free bread is a carb substitution for the week.
Detox Time: As a quick + fast food snack anytime during the day.
LPB Notes: Where has this bread been all my life? You need only a slice and it is truly filling! The taste is great top the bread with the Dulse Flakes and Karyn's Lemon Dressing for an uber easy yummy treat!

Product: Dulse Flakes, $6.99
Benefits:  A source of protein it contains high levels of iodine, as well as calcium, iron, manganese, magnesium, potassium and zinc. It has vitamins A, C, E, and most of the B vitamins, including B6 and B12 this dried algae  is also known to keep your locks youthful and the grays away!    
Detox Time: Use with the Lemon Dressing and a slice of Manna bread for a quick treat. 
LPB Notes: Mon petites, I have been living under a rock! I had no idea that this algae existed and was so delicious.
* Karyn Tip* : The Dulse Flakes make eating on the run possible. You can make
Product: Karyn's Lemon Dressing, $8.99
Benefits:  Made with all natural, organic ingredients this vegan dressing is filled with nutrients, vitamins and is filled with flavor.
Detox Time: Can be combined with the Dulse Flakes and made into a delicious topping for the manna bread treat. Also makes an amazing salad dressing.  
LPB Notes: I traveled with this dressing and used it on everything! From salad to the Dulse Flakes sandwich it's an amazing addition to any and every dish. I am officially addicted.  

Product: Karyn's Kare Lecithin, $7.69
Benefits:  Lecithin is a lipid that consists mostly of choline, but also includes phosphorus, and linoleic acid. Lecithin helps to prevent arteriosclerosis, protects against cardiovascular disease, improves brain function, helps keep the liver and kidneys healthy, aids in thiamine and vitamin A absorption, and can even help to repair liver damage --this nutrient is essential to every living cell in the human body.
Detox Time: Mix this with the Green Meal for a oh so yummy smoothie.
LPB Notes: This isn't my 1st experience with Lecithin. When my grandmother was detoxing she was advised to use Lecithin and has for the pass three years. You can add it on your meals for an added boost -- your body will thank you.

So there you have it - Along with this capsules, drinks and smoothies I mostly ate Karyn's vegan dishes along with a few of my own I will share with you shortly.

All these products are available at www.karynraw.com and can be shipped right to your front door!

when you 1st mentioned the detox I thought it was going to be really expensive like Salma Hayek's or that bcleanse crap all the nyc showroom girls are doing but doing the math of the products it's not too bad and doable and it seem like the products would last a bit too keep up the blogging
