Organic Krush in Amagansett offers a Vegan three-day Cleanse. It’s dairy-free, gluten-free, sugar-free, meat-free, alcohol-free, but not at all flavor-free. The meals are jam-packed with vegetable and nutrient-full ingredients.
The company states that the cleanse will “aid your liver and other organs in ridding your body of toxic substances, and then by eating whole organic foods, it gives your palette and eating habits a reset.” Benefits include weight loss and craving control, higher energy levels, improved digestive health, strengthened immune system, stress reduction, restful sleep and improved emotional health, to name a few.
The plan includes a wellness shot each morning, two cold pressed juices per day, three vegan meals per day and one snack. It also includes a guide to slowing down your lifestyle following the cleanse, and gives tips like incorporating walks in the sun and taking Epsom salt baths. The resulting benefits, they say, are both physical and psychological. Visit organickrush.com to learn more.
