Hey guys! I’m Jennifer Taylor, a Holistic Health Coach, Private Chef & Yoga Teacher. I love each individual role but what really excites me is the intersection of the three. I work with my coaching clients on strengthening the connection between the feeling body and the thinking mind. This is how they start to really understand and be able to respond to the unique messages they get from their bodies. Creating clean eating programs gives me an opportunity to share my recipes and turn people on to how delicious and simple clean eating can be. The most rewarding thing is how often I hear that the cleanse recipes have become staples in people’s repertoires, even after the 7 days are over.

I am a proponent of what I call, Rational Cleansing. This is a gentle way of cleansing the body that emphasizes whole, seasonal foods while removing the major allergens and irritants from the diet for a period of time. There is no deprivation here. This is about nourishment, not punishment. Think of it as changing the oil in your car—by lightening the load on your organ systems and giving them good, clean fuel, you’re letting them do their jobs at maximum capacity. We already have this incredible detoxification system in place—periodic gentle cleansing just harnesses the power of our own bodies. How cool is that?!?

Here is a bonus recipe to get you excited about what you could be a part of:

BONUS RECIPE: As we creep into the summer months I can’t get enough watermelon. It tastes sweet, but it’s actually 90% water making it a delicious, low-sugar way to get hydrated. This soup makes a great meal–breakfast, lunch or dinner. I especially love it as a light way to fuel before or after a really sweaty workout.

2 cups cubed watermelon

1 medium tomato cored & roughly chopped (about 1 cup)

2 t rice vinegar

1 T olive oil plus more for garnish

1 T cilantro, chopped, plus more for garnish

1 T raw pumpkin seeds plus more for garnish

optional 1/2 jalapeno pepper, chopped

-Place all ingredients in a high speed blender and process until smooth. Taste and adjust seasoning as desired. This might take some tweaking—you want it to be salty, tangy and slightly sweet. Add a little more lime, a little more salt, a little more vinegar, etal, as needed. Chill for at least an hour and top with flaky sea salt, chopped cilantro & pumpkin seeds to serve.
