Similar to old pennies, environmental toxins are ubiquitous, harmful if swallowed, and may contain trace amounts of Abraham Lincoln. Purge your body of unwelcome elements with today’s Groupon: for $195, you get a seven-day organic raw-food health cleanse delivered by local company Delish & Nutrish (up to a $420 value).
Delish & Nutrish's cleansing regimen of organic, raw food is overseen by a registered dietitian, prepared by a gourmet chef, and delivered to clients' doors in order to render healthy eating simple and convenient. Each morning of the 7-day detox begins with a cleanse drink, after which flooded taste buds grab hold of a midmorning raft of three included servings of fruit. Clients consume a second cleanse drink for lunch each day, preparing their stomachs for a hearty dinner and dessert and washing away the blue teeth that betray a habit of sucking on Magic Markers. The menu for Days 1–4 includes such salubrious savories as thai spring rolls with dipping sauce, veggie lasagna packed with mushrooms and sunflower seeds, and thin mints and mango sorbet for dessert. The zesty cabbage, spinach, and jalapeño fillings of a baja cheese burrito highlight Days 5–7, which end with a final meal of wild-caught fish served with steamed vegetables.
To help them avoid confusion, Delish & Nutrish issues cleansees instructions on when to eat which items and how to avoid poking their eyes with their forks. Clients also benefit from a guide that describes ancillary foods they can munch without undermining the diet’s efficacy, such as fresh vegetables, up to 2 ounces daily of various nuts, and lightly-salted pocket lint.
Though Delish & Nutrish sometimes offers a discounted rate online, this Groupon still represents the best deal available.
Delish & Nutrish
Delish & Nutrish’s executive chef Justin Reed and sous chef Danny Kempton transform organic produce—much of it from local farms—into custom meals for each client before delivering them right to the client’s doorstep. Justine Meyer, the staff’s registered dietitian, helps plan the meals, stuffing them full of fresh, whole foods. Inspired by owner Nina Tafarella’s vision to help others transform their health through nutrition, this team continuously strives to help clients eat healthily without having to spend hours in the kitchen or drive great distances.
They can customize all meal plans, which can focus on weight loss or simply the maintenance of a balanced diet. Since they hand prepare their dishes without the help of industry-grade cloning technology, Reed and Kempton are able to appease vegetarian, vegan, lactose-intolerant, or gluten-free diners.
