I started the autumn cleanse with the intention of resetting my eating habits. I really enjoyed most of the recipes- I couldnt believe I made food that tasted that GOOD! the potato soup- incredible, the tomato soup- lickin' the bowl clean!! I didnt need as much variety as the plan provided so I pared it down to suit me. It was easy to stick to the meal plan, everything was laid out.
I felt really great during the 21 days, no fatigue or headaches- possibly because I am not a caffeine person. The only bummer was that I did not lose any weight. I was really hoping for that. Having a calorie count would have been helpful- and I did not have the time to do all the calculations, thus why I chose a meal plan program. When I requested a calorie count the response I got was to buy another book ( that has the calories in it). might consider it. Thanks for the program. I will now be continuing the plan- to use up all the remaining ingredients.
I really loved all the recipes of the cleanse. I'm a picky eater and liked about 90% of the meals plus all the ingredients (really except beets and shredded coconut). So that's a win! The cleanse is definitely challenging, mostly because the amount of time you need to spend to cook everything. I tend to like simple snacks and meals. But I'm happy to add so many really flavorful recipes to my repertoire.
I have been wanting to do one of these for awhile, and being able to do it along with a group of like minded people made it much more achievable for me! I loved having a plan to follow, and how the meal prep wasn’t too overwhelming. I was excited to see how easy it was to incorporate fresh wholesome foods back into my daily routine, something I plan to keep doing!
The 21 day Autumn cleanse experience has been amazing! I lost almost 8 pounds eating delicious and nutritional meals. Loved that its all plant based and vegan and no mystery supplements/drink mixes. The recipes are flavorful and my entire family enjoyed them. The shopping lists, meal prep guides are super helpful. I was worried that I will crave the rice, rotis and chai, but I was able to stick to the cleanse plan and was never starving. Hoping to incorporate green smoothies as a daily habit.
I'm so thankful I learned about the Autumn Cleanse through a friend who did the 10 day soup challenge. Although I started with some trepidation, I've enjoyed how easy the plan has been to follow. Everything is planned out for you -- weekly meal & snack plan, menus, shopping list, recipes, and more. While I found meal planning and prepping awkward at first, I was able to get more efficient at this. Meals have been flavorful and nutritious. Even better than the food are the physical changes experienced while following the cleanse. After a few days on the plan, my sleep quality is better, I have more energy and the inflammation in my body (aches and pains) has decreased. I've also lost 11 lbs! I like that there are no processed foods used, just clean real food. It's a new way to cook for me, but I'm loving it and feel amazing !!
I'm really thankful I decided to join this Autumn Cleanse. I've rediscovered my love of plants with all their colors and textures, smells, tastes and nutrition! I appreciated learning new food combos and helpful tricks. Never even thot of putting cilantro in a smoothie ~ and I like it! I'll continue to make the lemon ginger "tea cubes" and start each day with a friendly flush and tonic. I'm inspired to keep using many of these recipes (they were ALL so good!) and the cleanse helped me see better the value of planning and prep in order to have healthy options available. I loved the support of the team and fellow adventurers ~ so fun to see photos and share stories! Thank you for this experience!
So I learned not to be afraid of cutting up vegetables, except for onions. I learned that following a recipe, even if it looks like I’m going to hate it, results in good tasting food. I learned that I actually could do this despite my trepidations. I adored the organization of the clenz materials, esp. the page numbering. Did not really lose weight 😕 but certainly feel healthier. I want to try out Rawk the Year and see if it is as easy and helpful without being so strict. Thank you.
I was concerned when i realized no more regular coffee, however after 60 years of drinking more cups than I care to count-It proved not to be an issue and thankfully no headaches either. And this is how it progressed as I experimented with new seasonings and recipes. I kept and open mind and was very successful. Medications were reduced, I kick started a weight loss goal and look forward to being a part of Rawk the Year. I'm glad I made the decision to join the Autumn Cleanse.
I joined this cleanse hoping to control my food intake. I am a vegetarian, I eat healthy food and I work out 5 days a week. But still I’m overweight and I didn’t know how to shed that extra weight. The autumn cleanse is very educational and recipes are great. The portions size is really good. I simply just followed the plan and Voila! after a very long time I lost ten pounds! Thanks to Simple Green Smoothies I’m feeling so much better. This cleanse gave me the confidence that I’m going to achieve my desired weight goal.
What I enjoyed most about this program is how nicely everything is laid out for us. Meal plans with photos, grocery lists, easy to follow recipes, suggestions for substitutions all right there. And it is flexible! The food is delicious, every recipe came out great. I feel better and have more energy. Will do more of these in the future!
I loved the challenge. Really tasty and simple recipes, easy to follow. The three weekplans, shopping list and prep days helped a lot. And the community was also really helpful. To see the others, talk to them, see their problems and sharing your own. Loved the challenge and hope that I will keep a lot of the recipes in the future.
This was a great experience. I feel like a different person. Eating healthy affects so many areas of our lives, I just never ate well enough to believe it. The plan is easy to follow and I was rarely hungry.. I gave up coffee and am surprised I do not need it. The lemon ginger tea (minus the cayene) is my go to. Also tried some flavored herbal teas as iced teas which was very good.
My sister asked me to do the soup challenge with her and I am so glad she did!
We are eating better and had a great experience making our meals together.
I was open to trying all the recipes and there are a lot I would make again. There are only 3-4 I could do without, mostly due to taste prefeneces.
This past month I am glad to say I took back control of one part of my life that was way out of control.-my eating. I had been eating when I was stressed, bored, hungry and not hungry. That has changed and I do not want to go back to feeling that way again. .
What a great experience the 21-day cleanse has been. I've learned so much and I'm really enjoying cooking again! I've lost 9 pounds so far and have a ton of energy. When the cleanse is finished in two days, I will continue to eat this way. The recipes are delicious and beautiful to look at. I can't believe I got through this cleanse without cravings for sugar, caffeine, junk food, alcohol or chocolate, but I did get through it and it wasn't that hard because the recipes are amazing. Having a grocery list I could take to the store was so convenient. It was easy to succeed. I've embraced REAL food and have no great desire to return to bad eating habits and lots of processed foods.
Life changing!!! Thank you!!!!
So glad I invested in my health to do this 21-day cleanse. Previously, I had a mental image of a ‘cleanse’ program as being punishing, questionable supplements & full of weird foods that a real-person would never normally eat. During this cleanse, I NEVER felt punished or hungry. (I often didn’t even make all the snacks or even some of the meals as I wasn’t needing them.) The program is very clearly laid out showing all meals, snacks and beverages for each week of the cleanse. It gives you a very HELPFUL shopping list of exactly what you need for that week’s meals. Yes, it is a lot of cooking, but there are tips on what can be prepped in advance so as to reduce the actual meal time. And most meals are designed to cook one and eat twice (lunch following day). I learned many new tricks to perform with my Vitamix blender, bought ingredients and cooked food I’ve never made before, and learned how to make veggies as more than just a side dish on a plate. The meals have been tasty, nutritious, filling and I was amazed at how well I felt and my energy levels once I got a few days into the cleanse. Added bonus, I have lost 10 lbs! There is also a social platform for sharing experiences, pics and encouraging one another. I feel like I have the tools to incorporate more fruits and vegetables into my regular meal planning. Would highly recommend this cleanse as either a body reset or way to get learn and establish new habits for incorporating healthier eating into your lifestyle.
I had been wanting to eat more plant based meals but was overwhelmed at the thought of finding a bunch of new recipes. I loved the meal plans, shopping lists, and prep ahead guide! Everything is done, you just have to cook and eat it. I have felt nourished and really enjoyed the community support. Would definitely recommend!
What an easy way to get a healthy reset! The Autumn 21-day cleanse was full of tasty and easy recipes, complete with weekly shopping list and prep hints. Love the camaraderie and questions were answered quickly. This has set me on a path to healthier eating!
There are so many take always from this cleanse. First, I had no idea plant based eating could be so Delicious! It was easy, no mental effort required as the menu was completely supplied, grocery list and even suggestions for prep ahead. I’m in my “Wisdom Years” (apparently “older” or “elder” or similar labels aren’t fashionable now) and felt I had fallen into some eating habits that needed to change. This program has done that and now that I know how scrumptious the snacks and meals are, I will continue to focus on plant based meals. I had no idea what this could do for me until I tried it myself. Engrained caffeine and grab-and-go snacks or meal habits gradually shrunk the time I spent in my kitchen preparing foods that I Love. This program above all has reunited me with good habits that are self nourishing. Loving self ripples to every person we connect with. I decided to spread the Love by starting with myself. 🙏. Thank you Jen and your team, this cleanse has delivered way beyond anything I could have ever imagined… I just started 1/2 marathon training and feel like I have an abundance of energy, WooHoo!
After doing the soup challenge I loved the addition of adding in more healthy fresh food and not packaged or processed. The Cleanse was perfect timing. It also added in more options with smoothies , meals, and snacks. I come from a background of bread eaters which was at every meal and always usually added dairy to many meals as well. I also am a huge chocoholic. For about a few days I did think about bread, cheese and chocolate. Then I looked for awesome substitutes I love cacao. I never knew about nutritional yeast before the soup challenge. it’s great on many dishes. Cabbage leaves are fun and a nutritious alternative to bread. Cashew cream is Fantastic to go on many dishes as a dairy substitute. I ordered the smoothie and meal books to help me get more ideas later to keep on cooking healthy. I lost weight which I was struggling with for a very long time. I had a lot more energy during the day, problems before I was having with my digestion and acid after eating meals on week 2 were clearing up. I was feeling so much better. My husband joined me on the cleanse as well and helped me prep food along with my daughter. He also had tons of energy and lost weight, and loved the food.
My daughter is 3. She loved all the colors of the food and practiced learning about vegetables and counting while helping me cook. My daughter requests a smoothie daily now.
This Cleanse for me overall was
very positive, tons of fun, and made healthy changes in the way I and my Family eat. I plan to keep cooking Healthy and making plant based meals for my family.
1. I found this cleanse easy to follow and stick to.
2. The recipes were tasty and simple to make. I will repeat many of them.
3.Having an accountability group was motivating and encouraging.
I signed up for the year membership but would love to win a second year!!
I absolutely love this product. With so many protein powders on the market, the fact that it's unsweetened ,100% plant-based, no sodium and organic is my only choice. Oh and I forgot to mention there no aftertaste, none! It's worth every penny.
My absolute 100% number One favorite soup is the Hearty Red Lentil soup. The depth of flavors in that soup is unbelievable. For my first time cooking with red lentils - mind blown. I can’t thank you enough!!
It for me is a winner. I loved it so much. I was telling everyone about it. It’s my new favorite soup. I’m adding it to my Christmas Eve dinner menu.
This whole entire experience was Amazing and fun. I’m sad it’s over. I wish there were some more soups to make. I will look at all of the other recipes on the site and try them as well.
I grew up with my Grandmother making soups out of anything and everything. Leftovers go in the pot and we make a soup. You can be so versatile and bring so much flavor and make healthy choices. With fresh vegetables and flavorful broths. Soup is also a great comfort food.
It brings family and friends together.
During this ten day challenge I shared these recipes with family and coworkers. I listed it on my Facebook page to share, and inspire others. It’s fun , exciting, and good food makes people happy. We eat food to live, and we should love what we are eating. I am a very visual eater. All of the soups were vibrant in color and beautiful when plated. I enjoy cooking, if you have another challenge I would love to do this again. Thank you for sharing your recipes with me, and sharing your joy of cooking from your family to ours.
This has been great fun to try new soups each day and fill our bellies with more vegetables! Challenges are a great way to reboot and we have come away with some new recipes to add to the rotation. Plus if there are leftovers, they freeze well and make for great school lunches! We especially enjoyed the minestrone and tortilla soups! Thanks so much to Jen, for putting this together!!!
Fiber Fiber Fiber! We all need more of it and this challenge provided it. I loved the variety and trying new recipes. I rediscovered my love of leeks. I also made a video of every soup and posted it on Tik Tok! Looking forward to the next challenge. Thank you.
The challenge was great motivation to create my own healthy, nourishing soups & have them on hand in the freezer instead of using store-boughts! And fun to boot!
Previous staple meal was salad plus proteins; now have added great soups!
I've never bought so many vegetables and actually used them all before they went bad, lol! That alone was a win for me. I loved the variety of soups, not just the different flavors but the different textures too. They were all surprisingly simple to make and had ingredients that were easy to find. I've been trying to eat more plant based/vegan and this was a big help. I also now have a freezer stacked with yummy leftovers! Will definitely keep this going a little longer because I love how I feel. I've even lost a few pounds which was an unexpected bonus. This challenge was the boost I needed to get on a better health path. Thank you!!
