Today marks Day 11 for our online cleansers. Our daily online cleanse is a 3 week program of eating specific foods designed to calm inflammation and balance the body. We eliminate foods that can cause inflammation and trouble for most people. It includes vegetables, a
small amount of fruit, very clean animal protein, some starches and a lot of vegetable smoothies. Once the body is calm, and the disease symptoms diminish, it becomes noticeable to a person when a trigger food is eaten and the symptoms come back.
As part of the Diaeta Way, we encourage you to serve 20-30 vegetables varieties per week. This is because you need the fiber; your gut needs the variety and your body needs the balance. We encourage you look for vegetables that you do not normally cook. Chicories may be one such vegetable. We have included a posting on the chicory family here. We have also included two soup
recipes. Cook your soups in volume and freeze or share with a friend.

The Super Bowl is
Sunday! Are you ready? You will be if you stock up on avocados, onions, limes, cilantro, and endive leaves (a cleansers guacamole chip.) We share all there is to know about avocados.
These recipes are perfect for our cleansers. YES! We planned it this way!
Cheers! Jan and John
