cleanse your body, feed your soul

CLEANSE PREP YES'S & NO'S

Biologic+ has researched carefully which foods you need to include in your Prep phase diet and which ones to avoid in order to obtain the best results when doing your B+ cleanse.  You may skip the Prep phase and go straight into the B+ cleanse if you wish.  However, we recommend taking sometime (2-3 days are ideal) to prep your body and mind and make the transition a smooth one.

Please try to choose Organic, GMO-free products. This list reflects only a handful of foods we consider easy to obtain and is by no means everything that this planet has to offer!  There are tons of options; we are just simplifying it for you.  Remember that this is just a prep phase and it’s perfectly fine to cook your meals, eat them raw, or simply order our delicious pre/post cleanse solid raw food packages to ease into and/or transition out of your cleanse. We are fully committed to helping you in your journey!  

Please note, if you have allergies or are sensitive to a particular food, please stay away from it or consult with your doctor. We are not responsible for your food choices.

YES’s :-)

Fruits & Vegetables

You may have almost every fresh or frozen whole fruit and vegetable, also sea vegetables prior to starting your B+ cleanse.  Refer to the NO section for those you need to watch out for!

At the Pre-Cleanse Phase, you may eat your veggies steamed, sautéed, roasted, or simply make yourself a salad and mix with fruits and/or other foods indicated on the Yes list.

Recommended: Apple, watermelon, avocado, melon, peach, mango, papaya, pineapple, lime, lemon, orange, grapefruit, cantaloupe, berries, coconut, grapes, pear, passion fruit, guava, ripe banana, pumpkin, dates, figs, olives, arugula, spinach, bok choy, dandelion greens, most lettuces, asparagus, swiss chard, beet, carrot, cucumber, parsley, alfalfa sprouts, spinach, kale, celery, peas, brussel sprout, onion, garlic, ginger, seaweeds, etc. 

[NOTE: the PH value for a lemon before we eat it is acidic, but it turns alkaline in our body after we eat it. Since we are aiming to create a more balanced to alkaline environment during your cleanse, these properties of lemons and other citrus fruits are considered beneficial.]

Other Vegetable Protein

You may have legumes such as lentils, chickpeas, adzuki beans, mung beans, red beans, split peas, etc.

You may also consider fermented tofu, fermented tempeh, bee pollen, blue-green algae, spirulina, and wheatgrass as these are great sources of vegetable protein.  

Gluten Free Grains 

You may consider brown, black, red, or wild rice.  Also introduce quinoa, sorghum, millet, amaranth, buckwheat, teff, tapioca into your diet.

Walnuts, macademia, cashews, almonds, pistachios, brazil nuts, hazelnuts, pecans, chestnuts

Miso, nama shoyu sauce, tamari sauce, coconut liquid aminos (soy free)

Warning: anything with wheat, barley, or rye contains gluten!

NO’s :-(

No animal Protein 

Crucial in the 3 day prep phase and definitely a plus if you maintain the meat-free diet for at least 3 days after finishing your Biologic+ cleanse :)  

[NOTE: Meat will test alkaline before digestion, but it ends up becoming acidic as it is processed. Animal proteins are also slow to digest and inflammatory, often taking several days to fully digest. It is for all of these reasons that we suggest avoiding animal protein in the days immediately preceding and following your cleanse.]

Fruits & Vegetables

Nightshades - Only If you are sensitive (ex: sweet and hot peppers, eggplant, potatoes, tomatoes, red goji berries, garden huckleberries).

Other Vegetable Protein

Processed or unfermented soybean products (ex. soybean oil in processed foods, soy sauce, soy milk, soy yogurt, tempeh, tofu, textured vegetable protein-TVP)

Grains / Nuts / Seeds

Eliminate any white/refined rice, wheat, rye, barley, spelt, corn, oats (regular or gluten free), kamut, triticale, semolina, peanuts and peanut butter 

Oils

No processed oils, canola, shortening, most salad dressings and spreads

Dairy and Eggs

No eggs, whey, milk, butter, ghee, mayonnaise

Drinks

No Alcohol, caffeine, canned/processed/pasteurized juices, sodas

Seasonings / Condiments

Processed sauces such as Teriyaki sauce, BBQ sauce, ketchup, relish, chutney, etc.

No regular chocolate, pasteurized jams and jellies made with sugar and artificial flavors.

 


The rule of thumb is if you are trying to start a cleanse, you will try your best to eliminate or reduce consumption of animal protein, processed foods, refined sugars, and artificially flavored or preserved products.
