POST CLEANSE TIPS
You may feel deprived of food but going back to an unhealthy diet is not the best thing to do. Once you've completed a BKLYN JUICE cleanse you should celebrate the your hard work by maintaining your results. Hopefully whatever indulgences you were enjoying before the cleanse are not the first things that appeal to you anymore. You might even find that your attitude towards food has changed and that you're craving healthier things now.
Regardless, the key to incorporating solid food back into your diet is to do so SLOWLY. Here are some suggestions for the first week following your BKLYN JUICE Cleanse:
Phase One (Post-Cleanse Days 1 & 2)
Low-density foods that are high in water are kind to your digestive system and should be reintroduced first.
Fresh water-based fruit (melon, papaya, citrus; not dried fruit or bananas)
Fresh water-based vegetables (celery, cucumber)
Low sodium vegetable broth
Herbal or green tea
Phase Two (Post-Cleanse Day 2 to Day 5)
Continuing to focus on phase one foods, begin to incorporate more fibrous foods.
Raw or lightly steamed non-starchy vegetables (cucumber, tomatoes, bell peppers)
Raw green leaf salad topped with raw, non-starchy vegetables (dress with fresh lemon or raw apple cider vinegar)
Phase Three (Post-Cleanse Day 5 to Day 7)
Other more “dense” foods are now ready to make a comeback in your diet.
Lightly cooked starchy vegetables (yams, winter squash)
Whole grains (e.g. brown rice, barley, quinoa)
Lightly steamed or poached fish
