Cleanses can be challenging. You have to be careful that you're getting the right nutrients and vitamins while detoxing your body. And then there's the whole not eating factor of some cleanses. Sure it might be good for you, but it's still torture.
But finally there's a detox cleanse that doesn't make you suffer while doing something healthy for your body. It's called The Taco Cleanse, and was created by Wes Allison, Stephanie Bogdanich, Molly R. Frisinger and Jessica Morris. Not only do you get to eat yummy tacos for every meal, but you're allowed (and strongly encouraged) to drink alcohol.
The Taco Cleanse isn't about losing weight or getting into your skinny jeans; it's about feeling satisfied, happy and enjoying eating delicious food, guilt free. You may wonder how you can eat tacos for every meal and not feel a tinge of guilt. Everyone loves tacos, but they're not usually referred to as healthy.
You'll feel good about the tacos, since all the recipes are vegan. Plant-based diets are rich in vitamins, tend to be low in saturated fat, high in fiber, and packed with antioxidants, which help to mitigate health issues like obesity, heart disease, diabetes and cancer.
You can begin with the "Mild" one-day cleanse (tacos for every meal), or go all in with a "Fuego" cleanse, which is the full 30-day experience.
Plus, the variety of tacos is astonishing, with ingredients such as tofu, tempeh, jackfruit, winter squash, beans, bulgar, rice and vegetables, with instructions on how to put them all together in creative ways. You learn how to make vegan bacon, vegan nacho cheese, and the cleanse features unique recipes for things like mac and cheese tacos, tater tot tacos, and waffle tacos.
As you might suspect, the book is written with a sense of humor and fun. The recipes and plan are legitimate, and guarantee that you'll have more fun on this cleanse than you would on a juice cleanse.

All the recipes in the book look delicious, and even if you aren't Vegan it's good for you to go meatless every now and then. The benefits of this cleanse are numerous: the breakfast taco gets rid of the previous night's diet fails, and a lunch taco can uplift your root chakra. There are even dessert tacos so you won't feel deprived.
You won't need to wait after you've finished your cleanse to celebrate with a margarita.
