Silk Almond Milk Helps Me Through My Whole-Food Cleanse

I’ve been on a whole-food cleanse now for 9 days. During this cleanse, I’ve been eliminating dairy, eggs, gluten, sugar, caffeine, and night shade vegetables, like potatoes.

Avoiding all of that seemed so drastic and daunting, but I wanted to detox my body of all the toxins it accumulated over the years, and I’ve been doing and feeling great. I have to say that if you have alternatives in the house for food you normally eat and crave, it’s totally doable.

There is still a lot of food I can eat that is yummy and delicious. And because I’m eating whole, filling food instead of empty calories, I’m actually full faster and longer.

One of the things I thought I could never give up is dairy. I was more worried about giving that up than sugar. Being from Germany, I’ve probably eaten cheese or yogurt every day of my life. I also put a lot of skim milk into my coffee — how would I fair without it?

It’s actually no problem — thanks to all of the options Silk offers. They have many non-dairy milks with several flavors, and my favorite: unsweetened, non-GMO Silk almond milk.

Silk helps me make it through this whole-food cleanse. I can still enjoy my tea with milk and gluten-free cereal with almond milk, and don’t feel deprived one bit. Plus I know that I’m giving my body a better option than cow’s milk.

Switching to Silk is an easy way to start adding more plants to your diet. And when your body gets everything it needs to be healthy, it blooms.

I feel so much better on this whole-foods cleanse, mentally and physically. I’m proud of making it through another day of the cleanse, and my body is lighter and I feel great thanks to all of the wholesome food I’m eating and drinking.

I feel more focused and determined to incorporate many of the new things I’m learning during this cleanse in the future, like starting my day with a fresh green smoothie.
