What To Eat Before We Sail

To truly love and enjoy our Sailing Experience, please follow our recommendations and try your best to eat a plant-based diet for 3 days prior to your trip. We can assure you that if you do it, your body will be prepared to enjoy a relaxing and exhilarating fun time sailing with us.

Cleanse, fast…these words are thrown around by many people who are just trying to get healthy, but what’s the difference between them?

The idea of a cleanse is exactly what it means. “To clean and disinfect” it is in fact a cause-and-effect factor, to cleanse your body of foods that you have eaten for the last few days. These foods could cause you to be off-balance and the effect of this is seasickness or dizziness.

A simple but easy cleanse can consist of abstinence from any number of food-related items, “Some results one can expect are weight loss, clarity, more energy, and the ability to sleep better and through the night and being more alert, and becoming more balanced” 

To get you started, we recommend these 5 tips to prepare for a cleanse:

  1. Prepare your body.  2-3 days before, begin removing sugar, dairy, meat, and any processed foods as well as sodas, coffee, and alcohol.
  2. Prepare your mind. Meditation and relaxation are very important to cleansing/detoxing as it allows you to reduce or eliminate stress.  We also recommend trying your best to quiet your mind, which helps you to stay focused on your goals.
  3. Prepare your food.  Preparation is very important because it eliminates confusion and indecisiveness as to what you will eat/drink eat the day of your cleanse.  Prepare by going shopping for all of your cleanse appropriate foods (fruits and veggies or juices). You must do your best to plan out your eating schedule.
  4. Drink warm water with lemon.  This helps to get your body started with the cleanse.  It begins the process of removing toxins from your body specifically your liver and kidneys.
  5. Budget Your Time.  If you normally burn the midnight oil while working, watching TV, or whatever, you need to adjust this during the cleanse, as your body needs an adequate amount of sleep. If you normally eat past 8 p.m., this will need to change because you want to give your digestive system a “rest” and not tax it by those late-night meals.

You have many choices, and I am going to leave this open for you to choose from.  If you need additional advice regarding these choices, you can contact me to help you prepare a menu with you, according to your desires, likes, and tastes in food.
