Quantum Wellness: 21 Day Cleanse

Quantum Wellness Cleanse

I can think about food all day and dream all night about romantic settings (with food), fantasy vacations to Italy (with food), entertaining friends (with food) and weekend getaways (with food).  I am constantly on the search for new ideas; cookbooks surround me with inspiration and, I confess, cool restaurant menus sometimes find their way back home with me.  I view food as a pleasurable celebration that provides nutrition and fuel for my body and warmth and love for those I cook for.  I enjoy the vibrant colors of fresh fruits and vegetables, the impossibly irresistible aromas that fill my kitchen when I’m baking and cooking and gorgeous settings to sit down and dine.

So when I heard of Kathy Freston’s book, The Quantum Wellness Cleanse, I was immediately fascinated.  And why, you might say, if I so love food am I fascinated in a cleanse?  First off, I would never go on a “fasting cleanse” or deprive myself on a fruit only or cabbage soup diet.  But I do believe in continually improving my eating habits and exploring food choices that can benefit and enhance my health.  I’m fascinated as well, in the challenge of creating flavorsome and inviting meals that do not contain the five ingredients to eliminate:  alcohol, caffeine, sugar, animal products and gluten.

In the forward of the book it reads:  21 Days May Lead to a Lifetime of Pleasure and Feeling Good.  Yes, I’m so all about that!  And then some.  The concept really is to step back and re-evaluate in a conscious way the food we eat and incorporate within these 21 days healthy meals that will cleanse and detoxify the body. 

I will begin my 21 days on November 1 ending right before Thanksgiving, and on a personal side note, my birthday.  I have engaged a few coworkers to join me. In fact, it was another coworker that introduced this book to me and excitedly shared her results thus far on feeling great!  I plan to post my healthy recipes and share my journey.  If anyone is interested in joining along, please let me know or simply follow my menus!

I love being in the kitchen. Early mornings, soft music, a hot espresso. Easing into the preparation of delicious meals. Glancing through cookbooks, gathering inspiration and planning my day. I look forward to the cycles of the seasons, the pleasures of tasting and savoring and sharing this with those dear to me. Weekends are special to me as my week days are often rushed, but still I create the ambiance, light the candles, set the table and uncork the wine.

    Oh my goodness! I just stumbled upon this post today while searching for food ideas! It’s so funny because a co-worker told me about this too, and, I am starting today (Nov. 1), AND, my b-day is Nov 27!! Crazy, huh!? I am doing this hoping to feel better. Weight loss is a good thing, but I really am hoping to get rid of the sluggishness and aches and joint pain that has been getting worse and worse! Good luck to you! I will be following along!

      Hi Janie! I’m so glad you found this and what a coincidence on the timing as well as the birthday!! I actually did this last year but hopefully you can see my other posts as I went thru the cleanse. Good luck to you! (Under Categories you will find the Wellness Cleanse which will bring up posts related to it)

    I did the cleanse about 2 years ago and lost 13 pounds in 21 days. I wasn’t even trying to lose weight. I just wanted to feel better. I LOVED it so much I stayed on it and convinced my friends to do it too. I actually had more energy after giving up caffeine.
    I highly recommend this cleanse. I am doing it again next week.

      Wow, Lisa, that is some great results! I’ve repeated this a few other times as well. I truly feel so much better, alert and light when following the cleanse. I’ve continued with gluten free quite often even though I don’t have a “medical” reason to, it just feels better for me. Thanks for dropping me a note on this, so glad that you did!!
