Love True Food - Food for the Soul

This is a time to write about feeding the soul. when I started Love True Food, it was in the hopes of sharing sustainable, healing food to everyone. As we have evoked over the years, it is with great passion that I'd like to present Love True Food's cleanse plan. What we put in to our bodies is important, but, what we feed our mind's is equally as important. So with this cleanse, LTF makes a promise that we can bring you down the path to purifying your body and mind, which eventually allow you to re-set and literally detox old emotional patterns since childhood.

How can we make such a promise? Well in Ayurvedic medicine, most of the old patterns are stored in 'fat cells', and to gather more information about this, please visit Dr. John Douillard's Blog, he elaborates with scientific proof, showing that cell memory can be shifted and altered whilst we detox physically, emotionally and mentally, we are able to really get down to re-wiring our behaviour patterns and thoughts. Imagine a world where the idea of cleanse is taken further than physically? How much more can you accomplish. In a world where ‘temptation is everywhere’. Imagine gaining will power and knowing thta your cravings can shift from poisonous foods to nourishing foods.

Imagine choosing the right thoughts for your mind? How much better and happier we will feel.

Join our 4, 9 or 21 cleanse program and really see and feel the difference. We recommend doing this before January 1st, hahahahahaha, as that time will be a mercury retrograde, and you don’t really want to start something new during this time, as the energies may not be in your favour. 

Instead, try this cleanse before and really feel the difference of how such a simple cleanse can truly benefit your body, mind and soul. 

Check out our store for kitchari cleansing. To make the cleanse more effective, we recommended the following products;

 

  • Organic Ghee
  • Triphala Powder (at nigh before bed)
  • Sugar Cease (John Douillard’s Brand)
  • Sesame Massage Oil
  • Neti Pot
  • Neti Salt

 

Till next time, LTF crew.

Kicharee Cleansing

Cleansing the Ancient Way: Kichari 

Kichari (pronounced kich-ah-ree) is known as a staple food originating from India, and combines mung lentils with basmati rice. These two ingredients being the most digestible of the group, mung beans in particular are considered the most digestible of all its cousins. The word defines ‘mess’, meaning porridge. It is a warm dish, as digestion is in fact a warm process, and is packed with optimal protein and nutrition for nourishment of all the cells and ‘dhatus’ (tissues, in Ayurveda there are 7) of the body. 

The type of cleanse is compared to that of a mono diet, which helps the body reach homeostasis in its quest for optimal balance. From day 1 to 3, you may notice the boredom of the diet may urge you to cheat, however, by day 4, you’ll feel a slight and noticeable difference in your energy levels as the digestive system is given a much needed break. The journey of cleansing is not so extreme, it adds value to removing unwanted toxins without the negative effects of a total juice fast. However, leading up to any cleansing, one must try to avoid, animal products, even dairy and cheese, caffeine is a tough one but necessary, otherwise the body may go into major healing crisis with caffeine withdrawals. Sugar is another story, and if you remove refined sugar before partaking in this cleanse it can drastically help the removal of toxins and it has a less harsh effect on the healing. Gluten can be avoided as well.

So give the cleanse a try and see for yourself how beneficial fasting is. This coupled with a yoga and cleansing program can help city dwellers to reach a state of inner peace and calm without spending top dollar on health products or vacation spas or retreats. 

 

Happy Cleansing. Below is a recipe to help you along the way;
