Week after week, more people come to my blog searching for Advocare recipes than any other topic. Back in January I did a compilation of every Advocare Cleanse-friendly recipe on Fort Mill SC Living. Since then, I have tried even more recipes, but instead od adding them to the list, I decided to do a new post.
If you’re not familiar with the Advocare 10 Day Cleanse, you can read about my experience on it here and here. For the Cleanse, you will need an AdvoCare Herbal Cleanse (Citrus) and some Advocare Spark Energy Drink . (Note: I have linked to the products on amazon.com because it is the easiest way for me to do it, but technically Advocare is only supposed to be sold through Advocare’s independent distributors. They will not refund any money spent on advocare products ordered from Amazon.)
I had good success on my cleanse. (Not a huge fan a swallowing a bunch of pills or the fiber drink- Yuck!)
But the eating part of the cleanse is what I really like. It’s just a good way to eat for weight loss and it does a fantastic job of eliminating my sugar cravings.
These are the things you can’t have during the 10 days:
- Fried Foods
- Bad Fats
- Coffee- You can have limited coffee, but no added dairy or sugar
- White breads, starches, etc
These are the foods you can have:
- Fruits and Vegetables
- Lean meats
- Seafood (they don’t recommend shrimp or lobster during the cleanse. Not sure why except maybe the high sodium content. I have included a few shrimp recipes in my other list since they are such a healthy, low calorie food.)
- Nuts (but not too many)
- Healthy fats- avocado, olive oil, seeds
- Limited complex Carbs- brown rice, hummus, oatmeal, quinoa
Since Whey Protein Powder is made from milk, it’s best to use a soy or hemp-based protein powder.
Instead of serving with maple syrup, use just a touch of sugar-free syrup. The pancakes are already very sweet due to the mashed ripe banana in the batter and the blueberries and protein powder.
Leave the parmesan cheese off.
The salad dressing has a small amount of honey in it so use the dressing sparingly. You could also experiment with reducing the amount of honey and adding a little stevia or splenda.
Leave the feta cheese off.
Cleanse or no cleanse, these are some delicious and healthy recipes that will help give your body the nutrients it needs to have optimal health and a high level of energy.
