Kaeng Raeng: all natural detox
HELLO & HAPPY THURSDAY!!
I recently had the pleasure of sampling the 3 day Kaeng Raeng cleanse and had a wonderful experience and thought I would share! Until the other week I had never personally heard of the Kaeng Raeng cleanse before and can be quite skeptic when it comes to cleanses that are not just the simple, standard, and straightforward..
“consume raw fruits and vegetables”
The idea of embracing a cleanse that specifically involves adhering to drinking only 3 different flavored smoothies a day seems like an obstacle.. even for me!! I tend to prefer my standard organic green juice and feel confident that it’s best way to obtain optimal nutrients. As a consumer and future Registered Dietitian though I find it’s important to be open minded with new products, especially when they are as such high quality products like the Kaeng Raeng Cleanse!
powders are made from freeze dried local fruits
No added sugar
Non GMO soy protein is used
Can drink in any order
Shelf life for 3 years
product contains a lot of fiber, leaving you feeling full!!
Kaeng Raeng is a nutritional meal replacement detox program that delivers you results without sacrificing taste, convenience, quality, or your sanity.
Kaeng Raeng cleanse
comes with three options:
The Beginner (for first time users – our most gentle formula), <– I chose
The Veteran (for those having done at least one detox – our medium level intensity),
The Master (for regular detoxers – you know who you are).
The program is simple and straight forward: just drink one pouch per meal time (3 times per day) in addition to raw fruits and vegetables. Simply add one pouch to 24-32oz of liquid. You can use water, juice, or non-dairy milk. For best results, just add water. You can also blend it with liquid, frozen fruit, or ice for a thicker sweeter smoothie.
How does it work?
Kaeng Raeng was created by a Standford University alumna Lindsay Reinsmith pictured above. Lindsay says your body can consume all natural ingredients easily, healthfully separating fiber and nutrients, and passing waste through your colon cleanly. When you consume additives, chemicals, toxins, and other processed foods, your digestive system cannot properly separate the healthy from the non healthy components of the food. Many times, these toxins will not pass through your colon properly, sometimes building up over days, weeks, months, or years. Kaeng Raeng works to “flush” all of those toxins by using all natural fibers and water to help eliminate that colon build up.
Further, Kaeng Raeng is a restricted diet whereby you are abstaining from cooked, processed, heavily sugary or salted foods. By removing these foods from your diet, even for a short period of time, your body will naturally release toxic build up through the digestive system and skin. While challenging at first, your body will adapt to the raw vegan diet.
Kaeng Raeng’s program helps to:
Remove toxins and chemicals from the body
Jumpstart weight loss
Improve overall digestive health
Improve clarity of mind
Improve mood and decrease irritability
Repair damaged hair
Decrease flatulence, constipation, bloating, or excess water weight
Decrease cravings for salty and sugary foods
Make you feel better!
WHO SHOULD CLEANSE?!
Removing toxins from the body can have many positive side effects including weight loss, reduction in bloating, increased immune system, improved skin and hair, reduced cravings and overeating, and better clarity of mind. If properly conducted, a detox can rapidly help you jumpstart a weight loss plan, or make you feel fresh after days, weeks, months, or years of binging or not taking care of your body.
WHO SHOULDN’T CLEANSE?!
If you want to do the full 3-day or 6-day detox program, women who are pregnant or breastfeeding, any individual with a history of eating disorders, or any child under the age of 15 should NOT use Kaeng Raeng. Pregnant or nursing moms should not use Kaeng Raeng because of the low caloric intake recommended as part of the program. As always, please consult a physician if you have any medical concerns.

Cleanse Day 1:
For my smoothie I decided to start with the “Strawberry, raspberry, Pineapple” blend!! My initial plan was to try the smoothie just plain jane style with some almond milk just so I could get the full effect & flavor of this shake blend. I of course tried it by itself and it tasted like a fresh fruit smoothie!!, but I had to get all fancy and add frozen bananas, raspberries, Stevia, and some Amazing Grass Wheat Grass Powder for a little boost!!
I really loved this classic blend as it was fruity, flavorful, and QUITE FILLING!!
(no really, I’ve never experienced a more filling smoothie in my life!)
This detox is so filling because it contains 13g of fiber per serving, or 39g per day, most of which comes from the fruit and psyllium. I typically eat a lot of fruits and veggies throughout the week and that’s where I get my fiber, but I was not use to this much fiber.. 2 shakes had me full almost the ENTIRE DAY.
I couldn’t even drink 3 shakes per day!
Why so much fiber?!
Studies show that a high-fiber diet keeps blood sugar levels balanced, resulting in less hunger and more weight loss. Fiber has also been shown to reduce your risk of heart disease and certain types of cancer. The daily recommended value for fiber is 35g/day, although most Americans only get between 10-15g of fiber due to a focus on fats and carbohydrates and less on fresh fruits and vegetables.
For my second smoothie of the day I opted for the Blueberry, Blackberry, and Banana blend and it was quite tasty!! I of course had the idea of making a fancy version by adding raspberries, bananas, almond milk, and a few drops of liquid stevia and it came out perfect!! I would say that I found this flavor to be my personal favorite!!
The cleanse recommends that you eat only raw uncooked foods so I decided to find a happy medium by making some steamed portobello mushroom caps!! I heated them for less than 3 minutes with balsamic vinegar and topped with fresh garlic, rosemary, and sea salt!! (was surprisingly quite good sans the olive oil)
I ALSO DRANK LOTS OF TUMERIC JUICE!!
On day two I had to stop by YogaWorks to meet with the teachers for the yoga training, which is starting in the next two weeks!! Since I didn’t have time to make a smoothie when I got up I grabbed a green juice from Juice Generation Soho!! I got my FAVORITE –> Hail to Kale juice (around 12:30) which has, apple, kale, watermelon, and lemon!! Was yummies!!
(highly recommend it)
Since training starts soon I decided to take a pilates class for a little over an hour. I was of course nervous about getting exercise in while cleansing for many reasons lol (explanation not needed), but everything went great! I felt full from the morning green juice, not bloated full, but satiated, energize, and ready to go full!! Once I got home (around 3:00) I made the Kaeng Raeng “Mango Peach Pineapple” blend. This blend was really flavorful and I added frozen raspberries and bananas, almond milk, and fresh mango!!
The result was wonderful!!
For my second smoothie of the day I chose the “Blueberry, Blackberry, & Banana”. I added rice milk, frozen bluberries, blackberries, half a banana, chia seeds, and since I was more on the active side by taking a pilates class I chose to add some 22 Days Nutrition Plant Protein powder into the mix!!
This turned out amazing!!
(I think this was my number 1 Fave blend!)
Day 3 I felt great and inside and out and opted for a the “Strawberry, Raspberry, Pineapple” blend!! I added a little bit fresh mango with the skin, frozen blackberries and banana, and some vanilla PLant Fusion Protein Powder into the mix along with Amazing Grass Wheat Grass Powder
This mix was magical just like the others!
For my my last shake I chose the “Strawberry, Raspberry, Pineapple” blend and added, soy milk, frozen raspeberries, banana, vanilla extract, and Manitoba Hemp Seeds for an extra added boost!!
Since I wanted to stick to the raw foods while doing the cleanse I picked up some fresh raw/organic/vegan eats from Magic Mix Juicery
What’s in it?!
IRON MAN SALAD$11.95
Organic marinated kale mixed with spinach, avocado, purple cabbage, shiitake bacon, carrots, hemp seeds, Brazil nut parm and house made spirulina dressing
Raw Coconut Cream Pie $12.00
Flaxseed and shredded coconut crust with irish moss, coconut butter, coconut meat, coconut oil, coconut sugar, lucuma filling
CURIOUS ABOUT MY FINAL THOUGHTS ON THE KAENG RAENG CLEANSE?!
I never do a cleanse for more than two days at a time, but after the first day I felt like I was into the swing of things and the waves of foods cravings became less and less and finally vanished!! I assumed after the first day that I would be craving, dreaming, drooling, about the next time I would eat “Food Food”, but the truth is..
THE LAST DAY OF THIS CLEANSE I REALLY FELT ENERGIZED, VIBRANT, AND AS THOUGH I COULD HAVE STUCK TO THE SYSTEM FOR EVEN A FEW MORE DAYS!!
(and I never cleanse like this)
