Bethany's Annual Cleanse

Question Time: What's one practice you do to stay healthy?

Once a year, Adam and I like to do a 2-4 week cleanse.

You drive your car every day, and with us, we have 2 kids and we’re always eating in our car, and after time and time our car gets dirtier and dirtier and dirtier. Finally, we just gotta get everything out, vacuum it, clean it, detail it -- get it all clean.

That’s kind of how I see our bodies. Over time, being exposed to different stresses… environments… maybe eating sugars… every now and then having a bite of fried foods and stuff that’s just not good for us.

So, we like to do a cleanse.

The sort of cleanse we do is not where we’re like falling over of starvation and only drinking juice or something like that. What we do is put all our focus and intention on creating really whole, pure, organic, vegetable-filled meals. We eliminate dairy, peanuts, wheat, gluten, corn, sugar, beans, and anything processed.

Some of the things we focus on is eating:

-- A lot of live, fresh vegetables; so we’ll make a lot of salads.

-- Grass fed and finished local red meats, humanely raised.

-- We’ll buy really good eggs.

-- Lately we’ve been juicing, so we’ll make solid vegetable juices.

Just keep it clean, pure and good!

Have you done this type of cleanse? Tell me what you think! #bethanystylehealth

Bethany Hamilton has become a source of inspiration to millions through her story of determination, faith, and hope. At the age of 13, Bethany lost her left arm to a 14-foot tiger shark, which seemed to end her career as a rising surf star. One month after the attack, Bethany returned to the water and within two years had won her first national title. In 2007, she realized her dream of surfing professionally and since then, her story has been told in a New York Times best-selling autobiography and in the 2011 film, Soul Surfer. Bethany is involved in numerous charitable efforts, including her own foundation, Friends of Bethany, which reaches out to amputees and youth, encouraging and offering hope to overcome through Jesus Christ.
