We recently had a lovely ladies lunch to kick off the new season. It's fall friends and we are soaking it up. Colleen from Food, I Love You put together the perfect array of vegan tastiness for us (recipes are coming to the site soon!) and showed us how to set a beautiful table - with a light touch of fall!
I did it folks! 5 whole days of cleansing! I can't believe I actually made it through. I've got discipline but I didn't think I had 5 days of it!
I posted about my day one experience and I was pleasantly surprised. I usually go into new things with an open mind, but I must say the thought of cleansing for 5 whole days seemed slightly daunting.
Usana and April Norris (USANA Independent Associate) kept me in check through this entire journey. I would receive daily emails filled with inspiration which were very beneficial during this cleansing process. Lets face it there is food temptation everywhere! What I LOVED most about this cleanse is that you are literally eating or drinking every two hours. That is way more then I do currently. Eating this often speeds up your metabolism and gets that body back in check.
I can honestly say, I feel better! My personal goal was just to see if I could actually make it through five whole days of cleansing. April was very kind in letting me know that I could eat as many fruits and veggies as I needed. I am very active so I have to be aware of my caloric in take.
Moral of my cleanse story is that the USANA 5day RESET Cleanse is pretty darn wonderful! I really want to stress to all my Bennerfitters out there if you have wanted to cleanse, this is the one to do because it's totally doable! You don't feel hungry all the time since you are constantly eating or drinking. All of the smoothies taste delightful, the chocolate was my personal favorite! The Usana protein bars were both filling and delicious. And I love my fruits and veggies so the fact that I could eat them whole without putting them down a juicer was a big bonus!

Have a beautiful Tuesday! I'm feeling so energized I'm heading to the hills for a hike, thanks USANA and April! This cleanse rocks!
I'll leave you with Usana's motto...
How great to have a homemade ready to go breakfast, lunch, or dinner throughout the week. Cooking every meal sounds daunting but to know that you've got more than a few meals taken care is fantastic.
- 1 recipe pie crust (*Optional)
- 1 Tbsp. olive oil
- 3 handfuls fresh baby spinach, roughly chopped if desired
- 1 small white or yellow onion, chopped
- 1 red bell pepper, diced
- 5-10 asparagus spears, ends trimmed then chopped into 1-inch pieces
- 6 eggs
- 3/4 cup plain rice milk or almond milk
- 3 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
- 1/2 tsp. baking powder
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1/2 tsp. sweet paprika
- 1/2 tsp. dried thyme
- 1/4 tsp. chipotle powder (or chili powder)
- 1/8 tsp. black pepper
Take a bite, let the flavors melt in your mouth and enjoy it already! Upon having this for breakfast this morning (after dinner last night... yeah, maybe lunch happened too) I added some spicy veggie sausage to the side. Holy. Moly.
Let's just say - I'm not afraid of quiche no mo'!
