The Top 5 Radiance Cleansing Myths

by Layla Brice,

We absolutely love hearing feedback from our clients about their positive cleansing experiences and will always assist with any questions they may have. However, we sometimes hear myths about cleansing so have decided to share our top 5 in the hope that we can set things straight!

  1. Cleansing is for weight loss purposes only

While many of our clients will lose a pound or three during their cleanse, we don’t consider our nutritional juice cleanses a ‘diet’ but rather a form of liquid nourishment. They are carefully developed to provide sufficient fuel and support for your body so that any symptoms from cleansing (you may have none!) are manageable and you can carry on with your day to day life. Some of our cleanses are higher in calories than you might expect - we are certainly not out to make you feel hungry!

  1. You must not eat anything during your cleanse

At Radiance, our aim is for you to enjoy your cleanse and we understand that the prospect of reducing your solid intake of foods can be daunting. However, eating the right small snacks during your cleanse won’t have a negative impact on the cleanse itself, you will still be consuming far more nutrients then you ever would normally. We put together some suggestions that you will receive with your welcome pack - should hunger strike.

  1. This isn't going to be a pleasant experience

We believe in a happy balance for our clients so are not strict when it comes to rules. We also understand that everyone is different, along with what they want to achieve and recognise that happiness can be key to this. You will also be filling your body with nutrients that will truly make you feel good! So, if you just want some help with maintaining your glow or you’re trying to rid any bad nutritional habits that have crept in to your routine, then we can help you.

  1. You will have the same cleansing experience as your friends or the same experience each time you cleanse

We all love to hear feedback from friends and family about their experiences with cleansing, although it’s important to remember that we are all different - not just different individuals but different from day to day. It’s possible that you may feel different each time you cleanse as there are multiple factors that influence this. You should see and feel some really positive changes during your cleanse but there can be other changes that you might notice too that may not occur every time. Just remember that we will be with you every step of the way!

  1. One cleanse and all is restored!

Whatever it is that you want to achieve, we highly recommend doing a cleanse quarterly so that you are pushing the reset button with each of the seasons. It's worth scheduling your regular cleanses ahead of time to ensure you make time for yourself and prioritise your health.

  • 4 ripe bananas
  • 1/4 cup cashew milk
  • 6 almond ice cubes (can just use extra cashew milk) 
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tbp coconut activated charcoal

Method

Blend until smooth. Sometimes I like to freeze for a bit longer to make thick like ice-cream before eating or if making a smoothie bowl.

These delicious Banana and Chocolate Chip Spelt Muffins are the perfect way to use up any leftover chocolate from the festive season. 

Ingredients

5 ripe bananas
1 egg* beaten
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups sprouted spelt flour (I used Rude Health Sprouted Spelt)
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp baking soda
1/8 tsp kosher salt
1 cup choc chips (I used Om Bar choc buttons)
Coconut oil for greasing muffin tin

*To make vegan replace egg with flax egg. Just add one tablespoon ground flaxseed meal with 3 tablespoons of water.

 
Method

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and grease muffin tin with coconut oil.
In a medium mixing bowl, mash the bananas using a fork or potato masher. Add the egg and vanilla and stir to combine. Set aside.
In a separate mixing bowl, combine the spelt flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and kosher salt. Mix well.
Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir to combine. Do not over mix.
Fold in the chocolate morsels.
Pour the mix into the prepared muffin pan, approximately 2/3 of the way full.
Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean and tops are golden brown.
Remove and let cool on cooling rack.
