We Tried It: Cindy Crawford's Cleanse
When you look like Cindy Crawford, the world is a wonderful place. From her glowing skin to her enviable figure, the model and entrepreneur has been an unstoppable force for decades---and certainly isn't showing any signs of slowing down anytime soon.
Next up on her plate:Crawford is helping us get one step closer to having a body like hers by following her healthy diet, thanks to her new custom cleanse program from Urban Remedy.
Yesterday, certified organic food company Urban Remedy announced the debut of Cindy Crawford’s Essentials based on Cindy’s balanced approach to healthy eating that works with today’s busy, modern lifestyle.
But before you start to panic and reach for the nearest slice of pepperoni pizza, know that this is not a juice cleanse: It's actually quite a lot of food. The program features three days of complete organic nutrition, including juices, meals, snacks, and teas designed to help boost health, lower inflammation, and support a new healthy eating regimen.
“I think the biggest challenge to eating well is having great tasting and healthy food options readily available so you always have a good choice at your fingertips," says Crawford. "Urban Remedy keeps me prepared for whatever my day or week has in store. We created Cindy Crawford Essentials based on how I utilize Urban Remedy on a weekly basis, but the plan is designed to be flexible enough to work with just about anyone's lifestyle.”
So we gave it a whirl. Our thoughts? Well for starters, the inclusion of coffee in the program had us thrilled right off the bat (many cleanses eliminate it) and the easy breezy way the cleanse is designed makes it super simple to accommodate a busy schedule (make last-minute dinner plans? That’s OK, says Cindy!). The cleanse allows for business lunches, impromptu dinners out, and anything else life throws your way.
You can choose to eat what you want when. And as an admitted cleanse commitment-phobe, I was thrilled with the ability to swap meals around while still reaping the benefits. My favorites? The mint cacao chip breakfast smoothie with protein (which tastes like a milkshake, no lie), and the veggie pad thai, which satisfied comfort food cravings with zero of the guilt. After three days of eating like Cindy, I felt full of energy and my skin was glowing.
After all, abs are made in the kitchen, or so the saying goes ...
