21-Day Clean Eating Challenge

The clean eating approach and seasonal cleanses allow a person to tap into the body's natural ability to heal. It's this message and lifestyle that Betsy intends to spread to those who participate in the challenge and beyond. The 21-Day Clean Eating Challenge includes 14 days of prep with an elimination diet, a clean morning routine, healthy kitchen essentials, handouts, educational materials, meal-planning, snack choices, recipes, weekly meetings and a Facebook support group page participants receive constant support and can post their questions, concerns and recipes. The challenge is $50 per person and meetings will be held according to scheduled times of event. A private program is suggested when there are special circumstances concerning health issues.

I joined the {challenge} with the intention of educating myself in regards to food and supplements. Instead my entire way of eating and living has changed for the better. I feel the best mentally and physically at age 50 then I ever have.    ~ J. Feehley

These challenges are so helpful and it's nice to be a part of a group that is all striving for the same overall goal - better health. I love all of the new knowledge I've gained. After just a week of clean eating, I could tell a difference in my body and overall mood. I have a new love of brussel sprouts, my eczema is totally gone, my hair is growing faster and my skin is clearer.      ~ S. Strickland
