It's still technically today!
: -)
I try so hard to keep my word, and I said I would blog the cleanse details today, and I am making it just under the wire here.

Last night, I slept in the camper...there was the most delicious cool breeze, and I was snuggled in the quilts and slept like the dead. 

After breakfast, I went to yoga class - came home and decided that today was the day to do a rejuvenation pruning to the weigelas on the west side of the house.

One of the biggest things I struggle with is realizing how long things take to accomplish.

I truly thought I'd have this job done in an hour - two tops.

It kind of took me all day!  

I don't have a before picture, but here is after.

It's sort of flipping me out to see all the bushes nubbed down.  It's so...bare.
There were five very old weigelas, and they were really woody and not doing well, so I hacked them down to this:

I finally got all that danged poison ivy out from behind these bushes, and my wrists are already starting to blister.  I hope this is the last time I get the dreaded poison ivy.

I planted this area full of these pumpkins for now, until I see if the bushes will recover and start growing again, and I decide for sure what I want to plant in front of them.

I had a HUGE bonfire tonight, and finally as it was just getting dark - I was done for the day.

I spent a little couch time with Glenco and watched the season finale of Game of Thrones.

And now, I'm here to tell you about the cleanse...the details....


If you look to the right and side of the blog here ------> 
you'll see some links I posted for my favorite vitamins (recommended but not essential for the cleanse) and two of my favorite rice protein powders and flax oils (essential for the cleanse).

Starting Tuesday, June 17th - this is the daily plan you will follow for your food:

Your UltraSimple Meal Plan
You will nourish your body and keep your metabolism humming over the course of the seven-day program. You should not feel physically hungry, and by taking the recommended UltraBaths, you will both assist your body in expelling toxins and help keep your stress (which causes both inflammation and cravings) at a low level.
Breakfast (7 a.m.–9 a.m.)
  • Lemon juice (from 1/2 lemon) and hot water
  • 1 cup of decaf or caffeinated green tea steeped in hot water for five minutes. (You may also have the green tea later in the day. Limit your intake to 2 cups a day.)
  • UltraShake (recipe below)
If no bowel movement by 10 a.m., take two herbal laxative tablets (you can take two senna or cascara tablets to ensure you have a bowel movement).
Morning Snack (10 a.m.–11 a.m.)
  • 1 cup UltraBroth (recipe below)
  • Another UltraShake (if you are hungry)
Lunch (12 p.m.–1 p.m.)
  • 2 cups or more of steamed or lightly sautéed veggies (you should eat enough to feel gently satisfied)
  • 1/2 cup cooked brown rice
  • 1/2 cup fruit or berries for dessert (either here or at dinner, not both, and only one or two times during the seven-day program)
  • UltraShake (optional)
Afternoon Snack (2 p.m.–3 p.m.)
  • 1 cup UltraBroth
  • UltraShake (if you are hungry)
Dinner (5 p.m.–7 p.m.)
  • 4 to 6 ounces of fish or chicken breasts cooked with olive oil and lemon juice or 4 to 6 ounces of tofu or legumes (if using canned, rinse them well)
  • 2 cups or more of steamed or lightly sautéed veggies (eat enough to feel gently satisfied)
  • 1/2 cup cooked brown rice
  • 1 cup UltraBroth

The UltraBroth Recipe
Our modern diet is an acid-producing diet — including sugar, excess animal protein and processed foods — that creates a toxic cellular environment that can contribute to many diseases. This broth, filled with many healing nutrients, is a simple way to detoxify and alkalinize your body. (For those who can’t make the broth, you can substitute low-sodium, organic vegetable broth from Pacific Foods or Imagine Foods, but making your own broth from fresh, organic ingredients is preferable.)
For every 3 quarts of water, add:
  • 1 large chopped onion
  • 2 sliced carrots
  • 1 cup of daikon or white radish root and tops, cut into large cubes (ideal, but optional) (I didn't use this)
  • 1 cup of winter squash, cut into large cubes
  • 1 cup of root vegetables, cut into large cubes: turnips, parsnips and rutabagas for sweetness
  • 2 cups of chopped greens: kale, parsley, beet greens, collard greens, chard, dandelion, cilantro or other greens  (I used all kale)
  • 2 celery stalks, cut into large cubes
  • 1/2 cup of seaweed: nori, dulse, wakame, kelp or kombu  (I didn't use this)
  • 1/2 cup of cabbage, cut into large cubes
  • 4 1/2-inch knob of ginger, sliced
  • 2 cloves of whole garlic
  • Sea salt to taste
  • If available, you can add 1 cup of fresh or dried shiitake or maitake mushrooms. (I didn't use this)
Add all the ingredients at once and place on a low boil for approximately one hour. Simply continue to simmer to taste.
Cool, strain out the cooked vegetables and discard them. Store resulting broth in a large, tightly sealed glass container in the fridge.
Before consuming, heat gently. Drink at least 3 to 4 cups a day.
Makes approximately 8 cups or 2 quarts.
The UltraShake Recipe
This shake provides essential protein for detoxification, omega-3 fatty acids from flax oil, fiber for healthy digestion, increased elimination from flaxseeds, and antioxidants and phytonutrients from the berries and fruit. This shake is the easiest to make and digest; for two more versions, see my book The UltraSimple Diet. Also, for alternative snack options, enjoy raw veggies and hummus (don’t forget to read the label if it’s store-bought), seeds and nuts, or steamed vegetables or chickpeas spiced up with a little extra-virgin olive oil, lemon juice and sea salt.
Blend together:
  • 2 scoops of rice protein powder (the average is 2 scoops, but you should follow the directions for the serving sizes of the product you pick)
  • 1 tablespoon organic combination flax and borage oil
  • 2 tablespoons ground flaxseeds
  • Ice (made from filtered water), if desired
  • 6 to 8 ounces of filtered water to desired consistency
  • 1/2 cup of frozen or fresh noncitrus organic fruit, such as cherries, blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, peaches, pears or bananas
Optional: Add 1 tablespoon of nut butter (almond, macadamia, pecan) or ¼ cup nuts, such as almonds, walnuts, pecans or any combination of these, soaked overnight.
You will also need to pick up some baking soda, lavender essential oil, and epsom salts.  I would double check and make sure your epsom salts don't come from China. I'm not sure why, I just wouldn't want to use salts from China.

Under no circumstance do I want you woohooing it up for the next week, thinking you'll have one more week to eat what you want before the cleanse!
NO last suppers people!!!

From now until the 17th - try to cut back on caffeine so you won't have such a bad headache during the cleanse, and really try to eat as naturally as possible, ok?

If you have ANY questions, please leave them in the comments, or email me.

You will receive an email from me in the next day or two (it's supposed to rain tomorrow so I'm really hoping to get it done then!) In that email I will give you the instructions on how to join the Yahoo group so that we can share successes and struggles and support each other, ok?
If you do not receive an email by Sunday - please email me again, I'm hoping I haven't accidentally deleted any emails, or overlooked anyone.

The week of the physical cleanse, we will also start will small baby steps on decluttering our mind and homes.


  1. I'm so excited about this! I think the whole house may join in the cleanse! Jayme, thank you for all the hard work you're putting into this. It means so much that you're willing to help and be a motivator. I'm ready to go, I've just got to get the things you've listed, but I can't seem to get the links on the side to work. Also, How much water should we be drinking during the cleanse? Again, thank you, thank you!!!

  2. I think I will join you all but I am already one up on you on the Flax, I sware by it for moving the system...know-what-I-mean? If I do not have a flax smoothy every night, It will not happen in the AM. I can test to the fact that once your system starts to move in the AM, you will wonder where all that stuff was housed in your body. You will have to flush mamy times. Talking about movements, I feel like dr oz talking about the "S" factor.

    Thanks for this post and getting us all movin' in many ways.... giggle.

  3. I was just perusing some of your older blog entries and have to say that I really miss Helene and also the Hat Lady. You know... you can do them in your new skinny body and they would be just as funny. I know that blogs change over the years, as mine has done also, but I used to laugh out loud at your video antics. XOX Have a great day!!

  4. Your husband has been working with western countries such as the
    mayor, the sheriff, the quarterback, or the quickest route to a new man, because
    you cannot. You don't want to attract, but to reinforce the common tips to attract women bonds that you and your girl have an orgasm and to remember it forever. You would seem as a loser. Now, they tips to attract women have been tested under laboratory conditions for any ill effects and none have been found, you can go from a hopeless loser into a king in a few moments!

  5. This looks so good. I think I can do this! Thanks so much Jayme! Please count me in. debb@accessus.net

  6. I think I can do this too. . . it's just a matter of getting everything in. . . so we do this for 7 days, . . . ok. . . I'm in, there I said it. . . I have a week to get everything in. . . going to see if I can order from those sites. . . thanks Jamie, I need this, I lost 32 lbs,. . . great, but I still need to loose at least another 40. . . which will get me to 142. . . that's a little high for 5'4" but I'll take it. . . I need to get moving here, so yes, I'm committed, thanks so much!!!

  7. Everything is very open with a very clear explanation of the issues.
    It was truly informative. Your website is very helpful.
    Many thanks for sharing!

  8. Hey Jamye,

    I'm planning to follow you 'til the wheels fall off, even though I'm mighty concerned about doing a cleanse when I have to be out and about so much of the time. Anyhoo, I'm hoping that the Pink Chicken will resurface when we're done with this "Jayme Experience." I REALLY need to join the Pink Chicken Revolution!

  9. Ok, I aint gonna lie, this cleanse thing well, I think I will be a rule breaker. I eat modestly, always half portions with a doggie bag home. Tummy can't take alot anymore since the big "M. I have only ever cleansed for the dang colon test twice now since after turning fifty and I am due for another soon. Your lemon juice with that whole flax seed thing, well, aint gonna FLY Coop style with me girl:( The protein powders scare me too, as my son had a bad experience with one I hooked him up with from the GNC store. It ended up in a trip to a hospital emergency room the night of that bad January snow storm 2yrs back. Thought we were living in a Hallmark story that night. Ambulance ride that almost turned into a snowmobile ride to get there. Ugh! So don't hate on me :( I'll try to participate, maybe not so good in the cleanse department.



Thanks so much for leaving a comment!
