Want to get cleansed but don’t know where to turn? Some tips from an expert!

Ideally, all we’d ever have to do is focus on eating healthy, exercising our bodies and minds, and thinking happy, healthy thoughts. With summer right around the corner, now’s a great time to lighten up, break some bad habits, and kick-start a new routine, but incorporating change can seem overwhelming when there are little things called “work,” “family,” and “needing to do 800 things in the next five minutes thank you very much” in our lives. Enter the online cleanse. In the new world of digital everything, the spa comes right to your screen with tips, recipes, and support. VN talked with healthy-living guru Moira Nordholt about an online 21-day cleanse that she’ll be supervising.

VegNews: Is it important for everyone to do a cleanse?
Moira Nordholt: Yes. No matter how healthy we think we are, we can always go a step further toward impeccable health. We’re living in a toxic world. Almost everything we inhale, ingest, and absorb contaminates our body. But the awesome thing about our body is that it’s self-healing. When given an opportunity, it will perform miracles.

VN: What kinds of foods should one eliminate when on a cleanse?
MN: All fast food, fried food, processed food, packaged food, most restaurant food, meat, wheat, dairy, coffee, sugar, white flour, white table salt, any refined sugars—like corn syrup—alcohol, tobacco and recreational drugs, anything that irritates or inflames, of course, anything that’s been proven to be an allergen to you, soda pop, hydrogenated and saturated fats, empty calories like chips and crackers, anything with more that one or two ingredients listed on the can, ans basically anything refined beyond recognition as a whole seed, nut, grain, or plant.

VN: What foods will you feature throughout the cleanse?
MN: I’ll be featuring super, simple, seasonal, and sustainable foods throughout the 21 days. “Super” are foods recognized to have awesome healing benefits to the body, like garlic, ginger, pumpkin seeds, tomatoes, walnuts, spinach, kale, hemp, shiitakes, sea vegetables, and miso. “Simple” are everyday fruits, vegetables, grains, nuts, and seeds you can find in their whole form at your local farmers’ market or health food store. “Seasonal” is what’s available in North America right now. “Sustainable” means realistic, down-to-earth preparation that won’t overwhelm or have you spending all day in the kitchen.

VN: How do participants balance their cleanse with their real lives?
MN: This cleanse is designed for people at home who can’t make it to a spa for an intensive cleanse. The way I integrate it into my life is to let everyone around me know I’m doing it (that in itself often inspires others to do it along with me and now I have a support group of friends). I prepare mentally in advance by clearing off my calendar as much as possible and literally booking time for myself as if it’s the highest priority. I refrain from eating in restaurants as much as possible, but of course it’s almost impossible to go three weeks without having to meet someone for lunch or coffee, so I just choose the healthiest restaurant in town. And I don’t beat myself up if I screw up a day.

VN: How have you benefitted from regular cleanses?
MN: Cleansing has become an essential part of my healthy lifestyle. Four times a year, I look forward to preparing food from scratch, spending more time in the kitchen, eating very consciously, pampering myself as if I’m at a really nice detox center. It’s done wonders for me and I’m convinced that when practiced regularly, cleansing can stabilize weight, bring emotions into balance, strengthen your organs, energize your spirit, and jump start your life into new areas you may have once found too challenging.

Join Moira this April for a 21-Day LIVE and FULLY SUPPORT Feel Good Fast!

Theming Weekdays for Spiritual Success

Theming Weekdays for Spiritual Success

Remember when you were in elementary school and every day of the week had a selected elective or theme where you’d get a break from class with? For instance: Monday was P.E., Tuesday was art, Wednesday was computer class, Thursday was Language, and Friday was Music. Well that’s pretty much was Jack Dorsey’s secret to success in running two companies at the same time!

Now it’s not exactly like the former elementary schedule, but the concept is pretty genius. Taking two different businesses, the same business foundational pillars were compartmentalized as the focus in a single day structure. This allowed him to work across the board with both businesses.

What if we took themed days to help us out on our spiritual growth?

We DO run two different ‘businesses’ every single day. We run our personal lives and our business lives. We merge it and internalize everything in our bodies and minds. So we have our business model, where is our spiritual one?

There are a number of things you have to do everyday that you could delegate in a business that you can’t in your personal life. Start somewhere and realized there is a need to make realistic commitments. You want to have the most efficiency and fun in your week. Think of this themed week as an brainstorm to help you make your week the most positive and productive for you!

Take away and always remember – Food is fuel. Sleep is recovery. The pulses and pauses are the beating heart of our life and business. Enjoy and cherish all these little moments, so that you love the big picture.

A Flashlight in the Dark

A Flashlight in the Dark

There’s a storm.

Lightning strikes in the distance. It begins to creep closer. Rain neither here nor there, but close, so very close. The sky’s greyness begins touching everything. It’s diluting the colors until their saturation goes into only black and white. It begins to get darker, and then you realize that it’s all in your mind. Only a vivid description of how it feels to be hurting, to be stressed, to be in the divide of the mind and body.

Some of the prettiest pictures started in black and white. It wasn’t until later that the artist added color and textures. It it in those times that we truly find ourselves. Some of our storms are blessings in disguise. Storms are naturally occurring after all. Maybe they are present to make a cleared mat so that something else can be built on it. It is usually during these times that we start seeking and asking questions about what speaks to us. We ask ourselves if everything was stripped from us tomorrow, what would still help get us out of bed every morning?

Maybe you never asked yourself this? When it hits you, it is like a bag of bricks in a hot yoga class. It creates a desire for you to began researching because there is a longing for devotion.

What is my calling? Where is my guru?

At WIMG you can find a variety of devotees living their truths. Whether that be subscribing to Hinduism, Buddhism, Christianity, Judaism, Paganism, they all are here striving for inner connection of the highest love song and they have a love of devotion. The way they accomplish their spiritual goals depends on who you talk to. It might be yoga, it might be meditation, it could be self-study and reading, or it could be basking in the moonlight. One thing is certain, though, you would catch them all singing in the shower!

We all love music, it’s amazing how it brings everyone together regardless of chosen disciplines. It is a powerful gift,


“Music that creates bridges. Music that unites hearts and cultures. Ultimately, it’s music that brings peace.”


If math is the universal language, is it possible music is the native tongue?

If you’re in a dark place in your life, or perhaps the lights have dimmed, then think of this as all of WIMG, their teachers, and their students standing in front of you… Then one of them tosses you a flashlight. It’s your life, it’s your journey, you’ll have to find the next set of batteries.

We all are exploring our life paths. Whether you’re wanting to Feel Good Fast, are looking for Bhakti Awakening, are hoping to , there is a place for you. While you’re looking for your inspiration, remember: it is always darkest before the dawn, but look at the darkness only as a time to give you rest before “finally opening up to love.”

We’ll see you there!
