We caught up with the author of The 21-Day SuperStar Cleanse, yoga guru, actress, mother, businesswoman and innovator Rainbeau Mars to get her take on wellness.
The 21-Day SuperStar Cleanse breaks down into three phases (or three weeks), with the ultimate goal of cutting out most cooked food, processed food, and animal materials and motivates you to eat in a raw, vegan fashion. Tell us more about this program!
Doing something 365 days a year is impossible, but 21 days is doable for everyone. It takes 21 days to make or break a pattern, and that said, you get certain things that you keep with you. Maybe you’ll keep drinking Apple Cider Vinegar water with honey every morning, or go for tea instead of having eggs, pancakes and bacon.
I do feel the decrements in how I feel when I eat bread or cheese, but I always have the [21 DSC] program to go back to for 3 weeks or even longer to feel my most radiant glowy self. I feel the flexibility, strength and openness come back. Know about food and health, study it, try to eat healthy as much as you can, but don’t obsess over it.
What are some simple things everyone can do to get started on the healthy path?
Step 1: Fitness. It’s a great access point. No matter what, commit to 30 minutes a day of the kind of fitness that works for you. After 21 days of doing that, you will have a blueprint of how it makes you feel that will serve as a powerful reminder.
Step 2: Yoga. When you do yoga, it’s working in instead of working out. You’re getting a workout and at the same time really tuning into something deeper inside. Yoga is different from any other sport – there’s something about the vibration of the postures and the peace that the alignment brings.
Step 3: Eating foods that help you live rather than eating just to eat. Eat as good and as low on the food chain as you can, eat from the Earth, know where your food comes from, try to eat organic, eat all the colors of the rainbow. We all know what the right thing is. The reason why we don’t follow through goes deeper – it’s our disconnection with our selves.
Step 4: Think thoughts that serve the way that you feel.
Step 5: Choose compassion instead of anger. When you’re conscious of your thoughts and your actions, you are present enough to stop yourself from going towards something negative.
These steps might not come together all at once, but it’s a great start.
