The word ‘cleanse’ is usually associated with juice replacements or ridiculous measures that are not only hard to keep up but also deprive you of everything solid, and well, delicious.
Which is probably why everyone is getting so excited about the Cake Cleanse. Yes, there’s a nutrition program that actually encourages you to eat cake. Be still our beating hearts… and rumbling tummies.
Unfortunately, the cleanse doesn’t consist of cake for every single meal (we know, it’s disappointing). Alongside savoury main meals, the cleanse aims to give your favourite cakes a healthy makeover, without losing any of the flavour.
Created by Sydney-based (and self-confessed sweet lover) Deborah Schipper, the idea came as a way to eat healthily without giving up treats.
“I suffered from severe eczema on my face and body and seborrheic dermatitis on my scalp. I was incredibly fatigued and relied on processed treats to keep me going. I realised my diet could be improved but when I looked into detoxes or juice cleanses felt this was not a sustainable way to improve my health,” she says.
