Mr Perkins Wellness Cleanse

Written by Lee on . Posted in Ingredients, Natural Products, Reviews

I'm not sure about you, but I don’t love the idea of a fruit juice cleanse. After day one, I often feel deprived, lethargic, cold from all the juices and a little bit moody!

I'm a big believer in eating with the seasons so sitting by the fire-place and shivering whilst sipping on a pineapple juice for my 'health'. It just doesn't make sense to me! 

That's why I was thrilled when I found out about Mr Perkins' new Wellness Cleanse.

Mr Perkins, the latest health hub in Bondi Beach has a philosophy that I really love and try to live by myself – ‘cooked slow, served fast’. They turn the idea of 'fast food' on it's head with that one! Everything they serve is made in-house daily with locally sourced and fresh ingredients. Think hearty soups in winter and delicious smoothies and beautiful salads in summer. 

They've just released their official cleanse which is completely plant based, rich in fibre and designed to help heal and promote wellness. The cleanse is designed by Mr Perkins’ resident nutritionist, Jessica Rutledge, from the Greenery Clinic. 

Unlike many juice cleanses on the markets, Mr Perkins Wellness Cleanse acknowledges the seasonal changes and knows we don’t want to be drinking juice for dinner all winter long! It includes juices, smoothies, soups and broths to keep us satisfied whilst promoting detoxification. The body requires nourishment and warmth to maintain our wellbeing and this is what Mr Perkins does so well!

The cleanse allows us to step away from foods that are often inflammatory and, emphasises the goodness of vegetables, fruits and seeds.

If you’ve never done a cleanse before, don’t worry – it’s suitable for all levels. It works for people who’ve never touched a detox in their life to the juicing ninjas among us.

You can experience either a one-day, two-day or three-day cleanse depending on you.

Not yet convinced?

I’m giving you a sneak-peek into their delicious menu below!

Start the day off with a green smoothie, filled with avocado, banana, coconut milk, spinach and spirulina. This smoothie is energising and just delicious!

For lunch, you can enjoy a mineral-rich Shiitake broth filled to the brim with vegetables.

Need a pick-me-up? The Strawberry Gazpacho aids detoxification and is bursting with fresh flavours. It’s the perfect afternoon treat.

Now for dinner: their Green Soup with broccoli, leek, coconut milk and cumin is a real winner!

I love the Berry Chai Parfait for dessert. It’s a wholesome way to end the day, helps promote detoxification and is full of antioxidants and healthy fats to keep us going.

Sunwarrior CLASSIC PLUS organic protein powder

Written by Lee on . Posted in Ingredients, Natural Products, Reviews

Protein PowderBuying the right protein powder can be extremely confusing, especially when you’re looking for one that’s full of protein, easy on the digestive system and contains no hidden nasties!

One brand, Sunwarrior, has introduced a protein powder called Classic Plus that is not only tasty, but a great way to hit your nutritional jackpot each day.

The Classic Plus organic plant-based protein powder is completely raw, organic, gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free, hypoallergenic and Non-GMO. This powder is perfect for anyone needing a protein boost; regardless of the diet they’re following.  It’s nutritious and packed full of vitamins and minerals without lacking on the taste factor which is a big plus when it comes to supercharging your morning smoothie.

Protein powders can be extremely tough on the digestive system and gut however, Sunwarrior have created a formula that is easily absorbed and digested, and even has the bonus of increasing absorption of vitamins and minerals. If you want to rebalance your body’s alkalinity and improve your overall wellbeing with just a scoop of powder, then Sun Warrior is your answer.

 The Sunwarrior Classic Protein uses raw sprouted brown rice to create a hypoallergenic protein powder that contains all the essential and non-essential amino acids. This beautiful protein powder is gluten-free, soy-free, dairy-free and has a silky-smooth texture that’s often difficult to find in vegetable-based protein powders. 

The powder is composed of brown rice protein which is gentle on the digestive system, making it gut-friendly and Lee Supercharged approved! It’s also rich in lysine, an amino acid that’s often missing in action among the many plant-based protein choices in the market.

One of the powders in the Sun Warrior range is Classic Protein which can assist in weight loss, helping to boost energy and balance cholesterol levels. The powder is one of the best vegan protein powders on the market, as it’s naturally rich in vitamins and minerals and is super easy to digest, making it suitable for any lifestyle.   Pop a scoop into your morning smoothie or use in an afternoon raw treat!

The Classic Plus variety builds on the original brown-rice protein and has the additional PLUS of pea protein, chia seeds, quinoa and amaranth. This super combination is plant-based and powerful, so perfect for an extra protein hit.  Pea protein is low in calories and extremely nutrient-dense, making it a remarkable plant-based protein. Pea protein is also great for supporting a healthy heart and regulating blood sugar levels.

Another key ingredient in this mix is quinoa. Everybody loves the protein-rich, high-fibre and calcium-packed superfood seed (yes, seed!) quinoa! It stimulates the immune system and is full of iron, magnesium and other trace minerals.

The next pocket-rocket addition is small in stature but huge in benefits; Chia seeds, are included in this protein blend. Not only are they high in omega fatty acids, protein and minerals, they’re also rich in soluble and insoluble fibre so they can have a prebiotic effect within the body.

The final nutrient included in this power protein powder is amaranth, which is sustainable, delicious and nutritious. Unlike many vegetable-proteins, amaranth is high in bioavailable protein and even contains all the essential amino acids.
