Kris Carr’s Crazy Sexy Diet 21-day Adventure Cleanse – Complete!

Butternut squash soup! Yum!

Wow guys!  This is it!  It’s all over.  21 days of cleansing have flown by, and I can’t believe it’s already over.  But I have a confession to make.  Okay, maybe more than one confession…  First, I cut the cleanse short a day.  I had a wedding to go to on Saturday.  So I ate some fish and drank some really great Prosecco.  Earlier in the week I also ate some pizza, BUT, it was vegan and gluten free.  I don’t think pizza, though it be gluten free and vegan, is part of Kris Carr’s 21-day cleanse, but I wanted to try it and it wasn’t bad.  This past week, I made butternut squash soup that I ate every day for lunch along with a huge salad.  Dinner usually involved either another salad, or some rice or quinoa with veggies.  One night I made veggie tacos which were super yummy but I forgot to take a picture.  Sorry guys!

Oh, and one more confession, I ate two Newman-O’s cookies.  This was actually back after the first week of cleansing, after the day of fasting and drinking juice, and eating some raw soup.  The only other times I ever drank juice and ate soup all day is if I was sick, so by 11 PM, after a day of yoga and running around, I was starving and craving “something.”  Anything, really.  I have never felt that crazy and ravenous in my whole life.  Like a crazy lady, I ran to my cupboard, grabbed the first thing I saw which were the Newman-O’s, poured some almond milk and inhaled two cookies.  After two I realized what I was doing.  I lifted myself to sit on the countertop, took a few deep breaths to calm down, finished the almond milk and washed my hands of the whole faux pas.  That was my one and only major slip-up.  But I did realize that with a schedule mine I need to eat on the fasting days.  Thankfully, Kris does give the option for something light, like a salad as an alternative in the evening and thankfully there are only three of these days.  Now I know what to expect for future cleanses.

I love that I’m finding tons of tasty, even healthier alternatives to my normal way of eating.  Even getting over the fear that life without cheese and coffee is still a great life.  It’s very nice to be independent of coffee in the morning.  Waking up with ease and energy and not feeling like coffee is necessary to start the day is pretty amazing.  I have definitely overcome obstacles which is extremely fulfilling.  And, apparently I have been left with a very nice healthy glow which I kept getting complements on all this week at Strala. :)

Kris Carr’s 21-Day Adventure Cleanse has been a fantastic experience.  So fantastic that I don’t want it to end.  It has changed my thought process on healthy food and what feels good for my body.  This weekend was tough, but starting today, I am going to stick with this healthy way of eating for as much as I can.  Not only does it make me feel physically well and strong but also mentally because I know I am doing something amazing for my body.

Spinach salad with red peppers, pumpkin seeds, dried apricots, pecans and dressed with olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, fresh oregano and salt & pepper

I would definitely recommend this cleanse to beginners (especially beginners) who don’t know where to start, and to anyone else who has cleansed before and looking for something different.  It didn’t feel like “cleansing” and I ate some really good food, the whole time.  It was amazing!  If anyone decides to try this cleanse, feel free to contact me if you want to talk about it (thefoodyogi@gmail.com or www.thefoodyogiblog.com).  I’m happy to offer advice, support, help, anything you want.

Thanks Kris Carr for an awesome, extremely entertaining (I found myself laughing out loud) and completely educational book!  It has changed a lot about the way I eat and I am so happy to be on a new path of eating.

This is all for me from me for now.  Thank you all for following my journey on this cleanse and sharing in the experience.  Many in the Strala community have been inquisitive and so supportive throughout these three weeks and I am extremely grateful because it got me through some tougher food-related times.  So, thanks everyone!  It’s been a great three weeks!  I leave you with two photos of what I ate this week.  Adios amigos!

  • I’m eager to try it now, and I just bought her book! Curious if you lost any weight (I haven’t read your other posts on it yet, sorry if you mentioned it already) or ever got any sick/digestive troubles along the way? I may need to alter it a bit as I have severe crohn’s. Congrats on finishing though!

    • Hi DJ! If you are looking to try a cleanse, I definitely recommend it. I actually did lose about 5 pounds (I didn’t mention it before) but I can’t say that I can attribute it all to the cleanse. Since I am in the midst of the Strala teacher training I have been practicing yoga almost every day these past few weeks. I would say the weight loss is probably a combo of both. I didn’t have any digestive troubles, but if you have Crohn’s you will need to figure out what will work for you, depending on what causes your symptoms. I ate a lot of raw or slightly cooked veggies and nuts and fruit so if those bother you, it will be better to sit down beforehand and figure out what will work for you instead. The green juice every day will be great for you! If you decide to try it, keep in touch and let me know how it goes! Thanks for the comment! xo!

  • Congratulations on finishing the cleanse, sounds like you really learnt a lot! Your so-called slip ups certainly don’t seem like big deals, after all, they’re a lot healthier than most people eat normally (kudos on finding a vegan gluten-free pizza!).

    I’d definitely want to do this cleanse, it does seem like a good cleanse-light for beginners. That being said, I’m pretty sure I would start craving baked goods and bread pretty soon. Once again congratulations, I’m inspired!

      Thanks, loved reading about your adventures and this cleanse, which at least gives you options to eat real food, other than the strictly juice cleanses.

      • Thanks Jeanette! Glad you enjoyed it! I am definitely going to do this cleanse again, I’m still a little iffy on the juice cleanses. After my raid with the Newman-O’s I think I might go a little crazy without food for longer than a day. We shall see.

    • Hi Emilia! Thanks for commenting! You should definitely try it! The baked goods were really hard to resist the first two weeks. Now that I know I can live without them, it’s kind of empowering. Also, I know you like coffee, so that was hard too. I had a headache the first day but like I said, after I got over the initial caffeine withdrawal, it became really nice to not feel so dependent on coffee to wake me in the morning. But, you can totally do it! If I can, you can :) But if you try it and don’t like it, that’s okay too! If you give it a whirl, let me know how it goes.

  • Great to see you using pumpkin seeds. I love pumpkin seeds – I lightly roat mine – but just in a pan without any oil – got to watch them closely though. I even have a spare bag of fresh ones in the car.

    My hubby and I found Kris via the Hungry for Change documentary and it changed us for the better. We did and still follow Kris Carr’s way of thinking about our bodies. The 21 day cleanse was amazing. We both dropped 10 lbs of what I call unnecessary weight of crap we were carrying around. No more coffee and gluten free for 3 months. We have way more energy and feel amazing! It’s Crazy Sexy Amazing! ; )
