Najbolja utočišta za divlje životinje za objedovanje na otvorenom

Nacionalno utočište za divlje životinje Srednjeg zapada Crab Orchard na sjevernom rubu podnožja Ozarka osnovano je 1947.

Nacionalna skloništa divljih životinja Sjedinjenih Država postaju sve popularnija odredišta za turiste koji žele provesti neko vrijeme na otvorenom. Prema nedavno objavljenom nacionalnom istraživanju, anketirani posjetitelji nacionalnih skloništa za divlje životinje u 2010. i 2011. bili su pozitivno impresionirani rekreacijskim mogućnostima, obrazovanjem i uslugama na ovim javnim površinama.

Recenzirana anketa, koju je naručila američka Služba za ribe i divlje životinje, a koju su osmislili, proveli i analizirali istraživači američkog Geološkog zavoda, ocijenila je odgovore više od 10.000 odraslih posjetitelja ispitanih u 53 od 556 nacionalnih skloništa za divlje životinje u zemlji između jula 2010. i novembra 2011.

Nacionalni sustav za izbjeglice divljih životinja prvi je američki sustav javnih površina i voda namijenjenih očuvanju životinja i njihovih staništa. I popularna su mjesta za posjetitelje - više od 45 miliona ljudi provelo je vrijeme u nacionalnim skloništima za životinje u 2011.

Među najpopularnijim izbjegličkim aktivnostima koje su posjetitelji prijavili bile su promatranje divljih životinja, posmatranje ptica, fotografiranje, pješačenje i vožnja rutom po autoputu, koje su dio šest prioritetnih javnih upotreba navedenih u Zakonu o poboljšanju izbjeglica iz 1997. godine, koji također uključuje lov, ribolov i ekološko obrazovanje.

Neka utočišta čak su savršeno mjesto za piknik. Iako izletište nije dostupno u svim parkovima, moguće je donijeti grickalice ili pojesti obroke u neke od najljepših parkova u zemlji. Samo nemojte hraniti životinje i odgovorno odlagati smeće.


Kako zaista izgleda 12 dana čišćenja Divlje ruže

Naš pomoćnik urednika Dominique Lamberton 12 je dana odbijao mliječne proizvode, pšenicu i alkohol i živio je da ispriča priču.

Moj omiljeni smoothie od čišćenja.

Dan prije nego što sam započeo 12-dnevnu biljnu detoksikaciju, popio sam Cezara i pojeo pun doručak sa jajima i slaninom prije 10 sati Doduše, bilo je to jutro olimpijske hokejaške utakmice između Kanade i Švedske-ali u ponedjeljak koji slijedi osjećao se kao dan kao i uvijek za početak razdoblja zdravijeg i svjesnijeg života.

To je 12-dnevni program čišćenja bilja osmišljen za poboljšanje metabolizma i podršku jetri i crijevima za poticanje pravilne probave i uklanjanje toksina i otpada. Obecanje? Dramatično povećanje energije i opći osjećaj dobrobiti, prema materijalima u kompletu. Pa šta je uključeno? Ishranu bogatu bademima, smeđim pirinčem, ribom, bijelim lukom, đumbirom, lukom i biljnim čajem nadopunjuju tri vrste biljnih tableta i tinktura biljnog ekstrakta koji se uzimaju dva puta dnevno. Druge prihvatljive namirnice tijekom 12 dana uključuju većinu povrća (s izuzetkom gljiva), neko voće (jabuke, bobičasto voće, koštuničavo voće, poput trešanja, šljiva i nektarina i limuna), nemasno meso, nezaslađeno bademovo mlijeko, tahini, jaja, kavu , pasulj, integralne žitarice, tofu, orasi i sjemenke (s izuzetkom kikirikija) i začinsko bilje. Šta ne možete jesti? U osnovi svi mliječni proizvodi i proizvodi od brašna. Oh, i skoro sam zaboravio: Bez alkohola.

Pa zašto biste se odrekli svih dobrih stvari na 12 dana?

Htjela sam preispitati svoje prehrambene navike (trčanje sa slatkim poslasticama u 15 sati postalo je pomalo rutinsko), kao i skinuti malo svoje tjelesne težine za praznike/zime. Neko sam vrijeme namjeravao pronaći vremena za ovakav program (problem je u tome što je kao društvenim dvadesetogodišnjacima koji žive u centru Toronta teško pronaći 12-dnevnu dionicu bez ikakvih angažmana usmjerenih na hranu i piće) . Teoretski je lako reći: "Danas ću početi zdravije jesti!" ali ništa vas ne sprječava da isšunjate kolačić ovdje ili paket Skittles tamo. Mislio sam da će me ovako programirani program držati u skladu i nadati se usaditi neke zdravije navike. Tako sam nakon pobjedničke hokejaške utakmice otputovao u trgovinu i nabavio zalihe. U moja kolica ušla je većina odjela za proizvodnju, kao i bademi i pepita iz odjeljka za rasuti teret, nešto pilećih prsa, nezaslađeno bademovo mlijeko i smrznuto bobičasto voće. Već sam kupio komplet za detoksikaciju Wild Rose (oko 40 USD) u trgovini zdrave hrane. Te noći, nakon što sam dobro pojeo posljednji gumeni bombon, otišao sam u krevet osjećajući se spremnim za sljedećih 12 dana. Idemo!

Dani 1 do 4: Živjeti u magli

Odmah znam da će doručak biti težak. Obično dan započinjem grčkim jogurtom, malo voća i komadom tosta. Dakle, s jogurtom i tostom ne dolazi u obzir, to ostavlja plodove. Ali ne mogu samo voće koje želim (banane se, na primjer, ne preporučuju). Na sreću, ovde Chatelaine Štab, imamo isporuku zelenog soka tri dana u sedmici, na šta sam se prijavio ponedjeljkom. Uživao sam u svom zelenom soku (obično eliksir koji sadrži bilo koju kombinaciju kelja, špinata, krušaka, jabuka i đumbira) 1. dana s malo bobičastog voća i crnom kafom, za koju sam iznenadio da mi ne smeta (obično uzimam s prskanjem mlijeka.) Prva četiri dana bila su najteža. Iako žudnja nije bila luda, zatekla sam se u želji za mrvicom fete na mojoj salati ili komadom svježeg naana koji će pratiti moj curry od leće. I dok nisam otkrivao detalje, odlasci u kupaonicu su se povećali (pretpostavljam da se očekivalo pri uzimanju biljne tablete pod nazivom Laxaherb). Ali najgori dio bio je osjećaj magline koji se pojavljivao svakog popodneva. U osnovi, jednostavno sam se osjećao nesposobnim. I ja sam uveče bio pomalo uznemiren - srce mi je ubrzalo dodir, a blago stezanje steglo me u grudima. Pomalo oprezan zbog ovih simptoma, posavjetovao sam se s Googleom i pročitao brojne recenzije drugih koji su radili detoksikaciju, te saznao da nisam sam. Činilo se da su ljudi govorili da je nakon petog dana plovilo lakše.

5. do 8. dan: Nova otkrića

Recenzije su bile tačne i probudio sam se petog dana osjećajući se osvježeno, a do popodneva nije bilo oblačno, osjećala sam se „van sebe“. No, pojavio se novi izazov: vikend. Tokom radne nedelje sa zadovoljstvom sam spremao večeru svake večeri, pa sam narednog dana dodatno odneo na posao na ručak. Ali vikend je kada bi moji prijatelji izlazili da jedu, piju i vesele se. Prijatelju je u petak bio rođendan, pa je banda otišla u bar - bar u kojem će se plesati. Osećao sam se prilično entuzijastično zbog odlaska, plašeći se da ću se osećati neumjesno na plesnom podijumu okruženom svim mojim sretno napijenim prijateljima. Ali čim smo stigli tamo, nabrijali su me pop hitovi i moji prijatelji koji vole zabavu, i plesala sam do zadnjeg poziva. Bilo je okrepljujuće plesati cijelu noć bez gutljaja alkohola! A još bolje je bilo probuditi se u subotu ujutro bez mamurluka. Ažuriranje hrane: Novi favoriti uključuju preljeve napravljene od tahinija, češnjaka i limuna i hrskave pepitse posute po svemu. Zabavljam se eksperimentirajući u kuhinji, a iako mi nedostaju sir i tjestenina, zadovoljna sam odabirom hrane i svojim kulinarskim kreacijama. Najviše mi je falilo balzamiko sirće. Salate s limunovim sokom i maslinovim uljem su dobre, ali nakon nekog vremena postanu pomalo dosadne. Još jedno veliko otkriće: Kakao prah dodan u smoothieje daje im okus čokoladno-sladolednog ukusa-u redu, možda je to rastezanje, ali dajte mi ovo!

Dani od 9 do 12: Možda ću se obratiti

Do devetog dana potpuno sam se navikao na ovakav način života. Ljudi bi me pitali kako ide i morao sam razmisliti na trenutak prije nego što sam shvatio da misle na detoksikaciju. Zalogajio sam borovnice, bademe i narezane jabuke posute cimetom i umočene u maslac od badema. Uživao sam u ukusnim, raznovrsnim večerama i iskoristio zdrave opcije za jelo u blizini naše kancelarije. Što se tiče energije, nisam primijetio veliku razliku, ali više me ne pogađa popodnevni pad. A moje traperice su definitivno malo labavije! Uglavnom se osjećam prilično uspješno i zadovoljan sam znajući da sam sposoban jesti čisto i zdravo, a da se ne osjećam previše u iskušenju zbog zabranjene hrane (da ne kažem da nema iskušenja, samo pitajte cimericu koja je ušla u moju sobu držeći je) jumbo torba Smartfooda popodne 6. dana - mučenje!). Iako već planiram svoj prvi obrok nakon detoksikacije (subota ujutro) i radujem se ponovnom jutarnjem grčkom jogurtu, znam da ću od sada biti svjesniji onoga što jedem. Da li bih to ponovio? Apsolutno. Zaista mi se sviđa kako se ovo osjeća. (A tahini i kakao u prahu, ne idete nikamo.)

Dan prije nego što sam započeo 12-dnevnu biljnu detoksikaciju, popio sam Cezara i pojeo pun doručak sa jajima i slaninom prije 10 sati Doduše, bilo je to jutro olimpijske hokejaške utakmice između Kanade i Švedske-ali u ponedjeljak koji slijedi osjećao se kao dan kao i uvijek za početak razdoblja zdravijeg i svjesnijeg života.

To je 12-dnevni program čišćenja bilja osmišljen za poboljšanje metabolizma i podršku jetri i crijevima za poticanje pravilne probave i uklanjanje toksina i otpada. Obecanje? Dramatično povećanje energije i opći osjećaj dobrobiti, prema materijalima u kompletu. Pa šta je uključeno? Ishranu bogatu bademima, smeđim pirinčem, ribom, bijelim lukom, đumbirom, lukom i biljnim čajem nadopunjuju tri vrste biljnih tableta i tinktura biljnog ekstrakta koji se uzimaju dva puta dnevno. Druge prihvatljive namirnice tijekom 12 dana uključuju većinu povrća (s izuzetkom gljiva), neko voće (jabuke, bobičasto voće, koštuničavo voće, poput trešanja, šljiva i nektarina i limuna), nemasno meso, nezaslađeno bademovo mlijeko, tahini, jaja, kavu , pasulj, integralne žitarice, tofu, orasi i sjemenke (s izuzetkom kikirikija) i začinsko bilje. Šta ne možete jesti? U osnovi svi mliječni proizvodi i proizvodi od brašna. Oh, i skoro sam zaboravio: Bez alkohola.

Pa zašto biste se odrekli svih dobrih stvari na 12 dana?

Htjela sam preispitati svoje prehrambene navike (trčanje sa slatkim poslasticama u 15 sati postalo je pomalo rutinsko), kao i skinuti malo svoje tjelesne težine za praznike/zime. Neko sam vrijeme namjeravao pronaći vremena za ovakav program (problem je u tome što je kao društvenim dvadesetogodišnjacima koji žive u centru Toronta teško pronaći 12-dnevnu dionicu bez ikakvih angažmana usmjerenih na hranu i piće) . Teoretski je lako reći: "Danas ću početi zdravije jesti!" ali ništa vas ne sprječava da isšunjate kolačić ovdje ili paket Skittles tamo. Mislio sam da će me ovako programirani program držati u skladu i nadati se usaditi neke zdravije navike. Tako sam nakon pobjedničke hokejaške utakmice otputovao u trgovinu i nabavio zalihe. U moja kolica ušla je većina odjela za proizvodnju, kao i bademi i pepita iz odjeljka za rasuti teret, nešto pilećih prsa, nezaslađeno bademovo mlijeko i smrznuto bobičasto voće. Već sam kupio komplet za detoksikaciju Wild Rose (oko 40 USD) u trgovini zdrave hrane. Te noći, nakon što sam dobro pojeo posljednji gumeni bombon, otišao sam u krevet osjećajući se spremnim za sljedećih 12 dana. Idemo!

Dani 1 do 4: Živjeti u magli

Odmah znam da će doručak biti težak. Obično dan započinjem grčkim jogurtom, malo voća i komadom tosta. Dakle, s jogurtom i tostom ne dolazi u obzir, to ostavlja plodove. Ali ne mogu samo voće koje želim (banane se, na primjer, ne preporučuju). Na sreću, ovde Chatelaine Štab, imamo isporuku zelenog soka tri dana u sedmici, na šta sam se prijavio ponedjeljkom. Uživao sam u svom zelenom soku (obično eliksir koji sadrži bilo koju kombinaciju kelja, špinata, krušaka, jabuka i đumbira) 1. dana s malo bobičastog voća i crnom kafom, za koju sam iznenadio da mi ne smeta (obično uzimam s prskanjem mlijeka.) Prva četiri dana bila su najteža. Iako žudnja nije bila luda, zatekla sam se u želji za mrvicom fete na mojoj salati ili komadom svježeg naana koji će pratiti moj curry od leće. I dok nisam otkrivao detalje, odlasci u kupaonicu su se povećali (pretpostavljam da se očekivalo pri uzimanju biljne tablete pod nazivom Laxaherb). Ali najgori dio bio je osjećaj magline koji se pojavljivao svakog popodneva. U osnovi, jednostavno sam se osjećao nesposobnim. I ja sam uveče bio pomalo uznemiren - srce mi je ubrzalo dodir, a blago stezanje steglo me u grudima. Pomalo oprezan zbog ovih simptoma, posavjetovao sam se s Googleom i pročitao brojne recenzije drugih koji su radili detoksikaciju, te saznao da nisam sam. Činilo se da su ljudi govorili da je nakon petog dana plovilo lakše.

5. do 8. dan: Nova otkrića

Recenzije su bile tačne i probudio sam se petog dana osjećajući se osvježeno, a do popodneva nije bilo oblačno, osjećala sam se „van sebe“. No, pojavio se novi izazov: vikend. Tokom radne nedelje sa zadovoljstvom sam spremao večeru svake večeri, pa sam narednog dana dodatno odneo na posao na ručak. Ali vikend je kada bi moji prijatelji izlazili da jedu, piju i vesele se. Prijatelju je u petak bio rođendan, pa je banda otišla u bar - bar u kojem će se plesati. Osećao sam se prilično entuzijastično zbog odlaska, plašeći se da ću se osećati neumjesno na plesnom podijumu okruženom svim mojim sretno napijenim prijateljima. Ali čim smo stigli tamo, nabrijali su me pop hitovi i moji prijatelji koji vole zabavu, i plesala sam do zadnjeg poziva. Bilo je okrepljujuće plesati cijelu noć bez gutljaja alkohola! A još bolje je bilo probuditi se u subotu ujutro bez mamurluka. Ažuriranje hrane: Novi favoriti uključuju preljeve napravljene od tahinija, češnjaka i limuna i hrskave pepitse posute po svemu. Zabavljam se eksperimentirajući u kuhinji, a iako mi nedostaju sir i tjestenina, zadovoljna sam odabirom hrane i svojim kulinarskim kreacijama. Najviše mi je falilo balzamiko sirće. Salate s limunovim sokom i maslinovim uljem su dobre, ali nakon nekog vremena postanu pomalo dosadne. Još jedno veliko otkriće: Kakao prah dodan u smoothieje daje im okus čokoladno-sladolednog ukusa-u redu, možda je to rastezanje, ali dajte mi ovo!

Dani od 9 do 12: Možda ću se obratiti

Do devetog dana potpuno sam se navikao na ovakav način života. Ljudi bi me pitali kako ide i morao sam razmisliti na trenutak prije nego što sam shvatio da misle na detoksikaciju. Zalogajio sam borovnice, bademe i narezane jabuke posute cimetom i umočene u maslac od badema. Uživao sam u ukusnim, raznovrsnim večerama i iskoristio zdrave opcije za jelo u blizini naše kancelarije. Što se tiče energije, nisam primijetio veliku razliku, ali više me ne pogađa popodnevni pad. A moje traperice su definitivno malo labavije! Uglavnom se osjećam prilično uspješno i zadovoljan sam znajući da sam sposoban jesti čisto i zdravo, a da se ne osjećam previše u iskušenju zbog zabranjene hrane (da ne kažem da nema iskušenja, samo pitajte cimericu koja je ušla u moju sobu držeći je) jumbo torba Smartfooda popodne 6. dana - mučenje!). Iako već planiram svoj prvi obrok nakon detoksikacije (subota ujutro) i radujem se ponovnom jutarnjem grčkom jogurtu, znam da ću od sada biti svjesniji onoga što jedem. Da li bih to ponovio? Apsolutno. Zaista mi se sviđa kako se ovo osjeća. (A tahini i kakao u prahu, ne idete nikamo.)

Kako zaista izgleda 12 dana čišćenja Divlje ruže

Naš pomoćnik urednika Dominique Lamberton 12 je dana odbijao mliječne proizvode, pšenicu i alkohol i živio je da ispriča priču.

Moj omiljeni smoothie od čišćenja.

Other acceptable foods over the 12 days include most vegetables (with the exception of mushrooms), some fruits (apples, berries, stone fruits, like cherries, plums and nectarines and lemons), lean meats, unsweetened almond milk, tahini, eggs, coffee, beans, whole grains, tofu, nuts and seeds (with the exception of peanuts) and herbs. What can’t you eat? Basically all dairy and flour products. Oh, and I almost forgot: No alcohol.

So why give up all the good stuff for 12 days?

I wanted to rethink my eating habits (the 3 p.m. sweet treat run was becoming a bit too routine) as well shed a bit of my holiday/winter weight. I had been meaning to find the time for a program like this for a while (the problem is, as a social twentysomething living in downtown Toronto it’s hard to find a 12-day stretch free of any food-and-drink-centered engagements). It’s easy in theory to say, “I’m going to start eating healthier today!” but there’s nothing stopping you from sneaking a cookie here or a package of Skittles there. My thought was that a regimented program like this one would keep me in line and hopefully instill some healthier habits. So after the victorious hockey game I took a trip to the grocery store to stock up. Into my cart went the majority of the produce department, as well as almonds and pepitas from the bulk section, some chicken breasts, unsweetened almond milk and frozen berries. I had already purchased the Wild Rose detox kit (around $40) at a health food store. That night, after eating one last gummy candy for good measure, I went to bed feeling ready to take on the next 12 days. Idemo!

Days 1 to 4: Living in a fog

Right away I know that breakfast is going to be tough. I usually begin my day with Greek yogurt, some fruit and a piece of toast. So with the yogurt and toast out of the question, that leaves fruit. But I can’t just have any fruit I want (bananas, for example, are not recommended). Luckily, here at Chatelaine HQ, we have a green-juice delivery three days a week, to which I have signed up for Mondays. I enjoyed my green juice (usually an elixir containing any combination of kale, spinach, pears, apples and ginger) on day 1 with some berries and a black coffee, which, surprisingly, I have found I don’t mind (I usually take it with a splash of milk.) The first four days were the toughest. While the cravings weren’t crazy, I did find myself hankering for a smattering of feta on my salad or a piece of fresh naan to accompany my lentil curry. And while I won’t divulge details, trips to the bathroom had increased (to be expected, I suppose, when taking an herbal tablet called Laxaherb). But the worst part was the feeling of fogginess that came every afternoon. Basically, I just felt out of it. I was also a little bit anxious in the evenings — my heart sped up a touch, and a mild tightness gripped my chest. Slightly wary of these symptoms, I consulted Google and read a number of reviews from others who’ve done the detox, and learned that I was not alone. People seemed to say that after day 5 it was smoother sailing.

Days 5 to 8: Making new discoveries

The reviews were right, and I woke up on day 5 feeling refreshed, and by the afternoon there was no cloudy, “out of it” feeling. But a new challenge presented itself: the weekend. During the workweek I happily prepared my supper every evening, making extra to take to work for lunch the next day. But the weekend is when my friends would be going out to eat, drink and be merry. It was my friend’s birthday on Friday, so the gang was going to a bar — a bar where there would be dancing. I was feeling rather unenthusiastic about going, fearing that I would feel out of place on a dance floor surrounded by all of my happily tipsy pals. But as soon as we got there I was energized by the pop hits and my fun-loving friends, and danced until last call. It was invigorating to dance the night away without a sip of alcohol! And it felt even better to wake up hangover-free on Saturday morning. A food update: New favourites include dressings made with tahini, garlic and lemon and crunchy pepitas sprinkled over everything. I’m having fun experimenting in the kitchen, and while I do miss cheese and pasta, I’m satisfied with the food selection and my culinary creations. The thing I missed the most, actually, is balsamic vinegar. Salads with lemon juice and olive oil are nice, but get a bit dull after a while. Another great discovery: Cacao powder added to smoothies gives them a chocolate-ice-cream taste — okay, maybe that’s a stretch, but let me have this one!

Days 9 to 12: I may be converted

By day 9 I had become totally used to this kind of living. People would ask me how it was going and I’d have to think for a second before realizing they were referring to the detox. I snacked on blueberries, almonds and sliced apples sprinkled with cinnamon and dipped in almond butter. I enjoyed delicious, varied dinners and took advantage of the healthy takeout options near our office. In terms of energy I haven’t noticed a huge difference, but I’m not being hit by the afternoon slump anymore. And my jeans are definitely a bit looser! I’m mostly feeling pretty darn accomplished and pleased knowing that I am capable of eating clean and healthy without feeling too tempted by the no-go foods (not to say there aren’t temptations just ask my roommate who came into my room holding out the jumbo bag of Smartfood on the afternoon of day 6 – torture!). While I’m already planning my first post-detox meal (Saturday morning brunch) and looking forward to having my morning Greek yogurt again, I know that I’m going to be more conscious of what I’m eating from now on. Would I do it again? Absolutely. I really like how this feels. (And tahini and cacao powder, you’re not going anywhere.)

What 12 days on the Wild Rose cleanse is really like

Our assistant editor Dominique Lamberton said no to dairy, wheat and alcohol for 12 days and lived to tell the story.

My favourite smoothie from the cleanse.

The day before I began a 12-day herbal detox I drank a Caesar and ate a full eggs-and-bacon breakfast before 10 a.m. Granted, it was the morning of the Olympic gold medal hockey game between Canada and Sweden — but the Monday following felt like as good a day as ever to kick off a period of healthier, more conscious living.

It’s a 12-day herbal cleansing program designed to enhance metabolism and support the liver and intestines to promote proper digestion and eliminate toxins and waste. The promise? A dramatic increase in energy and overall feeling of well-being, according to the materials in the kit. So what’s involved? A diet heavy on almonds, brown rice, fish, garlic, ginger, onions and herbal tea is complemented by three varieties of herbal tablets and an herbal-extract tincture that are to be taken twice daily. Other acceptable foods over the 12 days include most vegetables (with the exception of mushrooms), some fruits (apples, berries, stone fruits, like cherries, plums and nectarines and lemons), lean meats, unsweetened almond milk, tahini, eggs, coffee, beans, whole grains, tofu, nuts and seeds (with the exception of peanuts) and herbs.

That night, after eating one last gummy candy for good measure, I went to bed feeling ready to take on the next 12 days. Idemo!

Days 1 to 4: Living in a fog

Right away I know that breakfast is going to be tough. I usually begin my day with Greek yogurt, some fruit and a piece of toast. So with the yogurt and toast out of the question, that leaves fruit. But I can’t just have any fruit I want (bananas, for example, are not recommended). Luckily, here at Chatelaine HQ, we have a green-juice delivery three days a week, to which I have signed up for Mondays. I enjoyed my green juice (usually an elixir containing any combination of kale, spinach, pears, apples and ginger) on day 1 with some berries and a black coffee, which, surprisingly, I have found I don’t mind (I usually take it with a splash of milk.) The first four days were the toughest. While the cravings weren’t crazy, I did find myself hankering for a smattering of feta on my salad or a piece of fresh naan to accompany my lentil curry. And while I won’t divulge details, trips to the bathroom had increased (to be expected, I suppose, when taking an herbal tablet called Laxaherb). But the worst part was the feeling of fogginess that came every afternoon. Basically, I just felt out of it. I was also a little bit anxious in the evenings — my heart sped up a touch, and a mild tightness gripped my chest. Slightly wary of these symptoms, I consulted Google and read a number of reviews from others who’ve done the detox, and learned that I was not alone. People seemed to say that after day 5 it was smoother sailing.

Days 5 to 8: Making new discoveries

The reviews were right, and I woke up on day 5 feeling refreshed, and by the afternoon there was no cloudy, “out of it” feeling. But a new challenge presented itself: the weekend. During the workweek I happily prepared my supper every evening, making extra to take to work for lunch the next day. But the weekend is when my friends would be going out to eat, drink and be merry. It was my friend’s birthday on Friday, so the gang was going to a bar — a bar where there would be dancing. I was feeling rather unenthusiastic about going, fearing that I would feel out of place on a dance floor surrounded by all of my happily tipsy pals. But as soon as we got there I was energized by the pop hits and my fun-loving friends, and danced until last call. It was invigorating to dance the night away without a sip of alcohol! And it felt even better to wake up hangover-free on Saturday morning. A food update: New favourites include dressings made with tahini, garlic and lemon and crunchy pepitas sprinkled over everything. I’m having fun experimenting in the kitchen, and while I do miss cheese and pasta, I’m satisfied with the food selection and my culinary creations. The thing I missed the most, actually, is balsamic vinegar. Salads with lemon juice and olive oil are nice, but get a bit dull after a while. Another great discovery: Cacao powder added to smoothies gives them a chocolate-ice-cream taste — okay, maybe that’s a stretch, but let me have this one!

Days 9 to 12: I may be converted

By day 9 I had become totally used to this kind of living. People would ask me how it was going and I’d have to think for a second before realizing they were referring to the detox. I snacked on blueberries, almonds and sliced apples sprinkled with cinnamon and dipped in almond butter. I enjoyed delicious, varied dinners and took advantage of the healthy takeout options near our office. In terms of energy I haven’t noticed a huge difference, but I’m not being hit by the afternoon slump anymore. And my jeans are definitely a bit looser! I’m mostly feeling pretty darn accomplished and pleased knowing that I am capable of eating clean and healthy without feeling too tempted by the no-go foods (not to say there aren’t temptations just ask my roommate who came into my room holding out the jumbo bag of Smartfood on the afternoon of day 6 – torture!). While I’m already planning my first post-detox meal (Saturday morning brunch) and looking forward to having my morning Greek yogurt again, I know that I’m going to be more conscious of what I’m eating from now on. Would I do it again? Absolutely. I really like how this feels. (And tahini and cacao powder, you’re not going anywhere.)

What 12 days on the Wild Rose cleanse is really like

Our assistant editor Dominique Lamberton said no to dairy, wheat and alcohol for 12 days and lived to tell the story.

My favourite smoothie from the cleanse.

The day before I began a 12-day herbal detox I drank a Caesar and ate a full eggs-and-bacon breakfast before 10 a.m. Granted, it was the morning of the Olympic gold medal hockey game between Canada and Sweden — but the Monday following felt like as good a day as ever to kick off a period of healthier, more conscious living.

It’s a 12-day herbal cleansing program designed to enhance metabolism and support the liver and intestines to promote proper digestion and eliminate toxins and waste. The promise? A dramatic increase in energy and overall feeling of well-being, according to the materials in the kit. So what’s involved? A diet heavy on almonds, brown rice, fish, garlic, ginger, onions and herbal tea is complemented by three varieties of herbal tablets and an herbal-extract tincture that are to be taken twice daily. Other acceptable foods over the 12 days include most vegetables (with the exception of mushrooms), some fruits (apples, berries, stone fruits, like cherries, plums and nectarines and lemons), lean meats, unsweetened almond milk, tahini, eggs, coffee, beans, whole grains, tofu, nuts and seeds (with the exception of peanuts) and herbs. What can’t you eat? Basically all dairy and flour products. Oh, and I almost forgot: No alcohol.

So why give up all the good stuff for 12 days?

I wanted to rethink my eating habits (the 3 p.m. sweet treat run was becoming a bit too routine) as well shed a bit of my holiday/winter weight. I had been meaning to find the time for a program like this for a while (the problem is, as a social twentysomething living in downtown Toronto it’s hard to find a 12-day stretch free of any food-and-drink-centered engagements). It’s easy in theory to say, “I’m going to start eating healthier today!” but there’s nothing stopping you from sneaking a cookie here or a package of Skittles there. My thought was that a regimented program like this one would keep me in line and hopefully instill some healthier habits. So after the victorious hockey game I took a trip to the grocery store to stock up. Into my cart went the majority of the produce department, as well as almonds and pepitas from the bulk section, some chicken breasts, unsweetened almond milk and frozen berries.
