Does the Cleanse and Reset Work with a Vegan Diet?

Not long ago, I went from a commuting fiasco via airplane floor to a cleansed, energized, radiant ME! Hearing about my experience and how it led to an incredible five-day cleanse transformation has encouraged many of you to reach out. One of the questions I receive most often is how to experience the benefits of my cleanse and reset if you are a vegan. It would only be fair of me to create a cleanse that everyone can benefit from, right? I’ll walk you through various ways you can tailor your diet to the cleanse to make it a successful one.

What is the Cleanse and Reset?

When I found myself in a health crisis and in dire need of a reboot, I came up with a five-day cleanse that revitalized everything about me. Not only did I rid my body of the toxins that had been weighing me down, I actually felt utterly cleansed from the inside-out. The extra belly fat I had accumulated was melting away. My skin's youthful glow and firmness returned. The bloating, the exhaustion, the constant feelings of blah all turned around with this five-day cleanse. With a properly balanced diet of select soups, green smoothies, and shakes, I had found a way to quickly restore my health, clear my head, and find myself again. I felt amazing! Although it hadn’t been the plan, I knew I couldn’t just keep this to myself.

Modifying for a Vegan Cleanse

Just like my bone broth, this was a cleanse that had to be available to everyone. So you’ve asked how you can restore your health with a five-day cleanse full of collagen? While collagen and bone broth may not be a part of your animal-free diet, you can still make beneficial modifications to my cleanse and reset. Here’s how to turn it into your personal vegan cleanse: 

  • Substitute vegetable broth for bone broth in any of my recommended recipes. Vegetable broth is packed with potassium, so it makes an amazing substitution.
  • Leave out the collagen powder when making my green smoothie recipes.
  • Instead of using collagen powder in your shake, try using pea, egg, or hemp powder. They aren’t quite as rich in protein but are a great choice.

Substitute Collagen

Your vegan cleanse may not have collagen, but it will have the building blocks of collagen. The two primary amino acids that are found in collagen are glycine and proline. Adding an abundance of these in place of collagen will do just fine. Try to focus on foods such as: 

  • Cucumber
  • Kale
  • Spinach
  • Banana
  • Kiwi
  • Cabbage
  • Asparagus
  • Chives
  • Watercress

You will also want to incorporate these substitutes because they help your body synthesize more collagen. And who doesn’t need more collagen benefits?
