Food Cleanse Frenzy



Look beyond juice for a well-rounded detox by Beaming

Just four years ago, Lisa Odenweller decided to launch her organic superfood café, Beaming, in San Diego, with the goal of helping people realize the power of food as medicine. The former corporate exec—a wellness visionary at heart—saw the potential and opportunity in raw food cleansing and seized it.

Now with six SoCal locations, Beaming cafes are chock-full of superfoods, power shots, salads, soups, cold-pressed juices and even healthy cookies. All are organic, made fresh daily, plant-based, gluten and dairy-free, and non-GMO, of course.

The best way to experience Beaming is to start with one of its signature superfood cleanses. The Lean Cleanse, for example, available in 3-, 4-, 5-, 10- or 21-day increments, requires the day to begin with a power shot of turmeric, ginger and lemon juice.

Throughout the day, you’ll sample a good mix of six Beaming offerings, including two cold-pressed juices, a superfood smoothie and superfood elixir, plus one soup and one salad totaling between 1000 and 1,200 calories.

A Beaming cleanse differs from a typical juice cleanse by leaving you more than satiated; you’ll also feel extremely healthy and full of energy. You might not necessarily lose weight, but you will certainly sense a difference in your body.

And your body will thank you.
