I am Lyndsey Budesa, a Health Coach to women who believe they are "too busy to be healthy. My mission is to serve the world by teaching women how to listen to their bodies, eat whole foods and approach their day from a place of ease.
I used to be very "anti-detox." I always thought those were crazy fads that you basically ate nothing and starved yourself during. And listen...there's a lot of those out there. But after feeling stuck as to where to turn next for far too long, just dealing with daily bloat and a few extra lbs that just didn't want to go away no matter how many burpees I did I figured I'd give it a shot! But in a much more nutritious, not depriving way. Enter clean eating and self care rituals. After just a week my skin was clearer, my bloat was receding (dairy did not love me) and I was feeling lighter.
So now one thing I stand by is detoxing. Not like the cabbage soup diet, not that spicy lemonade one or even extended juice cleanses. I'm talking about detoxing with whole clean foods and self care. The term "detox" can be daunting to some, because they may be thinking about crazy diets, but I'm talking about a healthy ways to truly nourish your body!
And did you know you can start do this easily in just 15 minutes a day?
Yup, I know your busy!
So I created this 15-minute detox thinking about the busy new mom, the busy office babes, the goal-oriented, go-getter. It often feels like there's not enough time during the day to really do the things you need to do.
But you DO have 15 minutes. I know you do!
There are so many benefits to detoxing: clearing out your skin, lose weight faster, and eradicating illnesses and nasty symptoms.
Now, this is not a crazy fad diet.
I want to teach you the simple and natural way to detox. There are so many misconceptions about it. I am here to clear the air and help you regain your natural state!
MY 15 MINUTE DETOX WILL ROCK YOUR BODY INTO FULL GEAR AND CLEANSE THOSE NASTY TOXINS YOU HAVE BEEN ACCUMULATING FROM JUST LIVING YOUR DAY TO DAY.
I created this simple guide to attack symptoms such as bloating, acne, anxiety and digestive upset.
Some of my clients have come to me with an army of horrible symptoms and immediately, I know that their body is screaming for a DETOX. A release.
Your body cannot start to heal when it is overrun, completely out of wack and just plain exhausted.
Good news is that you can download this guide and get started on a life-changing move for your body.

If you’ve been feeling bloated, then you know more than anyone that you need to cleanse the junk from your body. It’s not always easy picking which path to take to cleanse your body for the results you want. But, I’ve made it super easy with my Epic 24 Hour Detox.
I don’t believe in deprivation, so you will not feel deprived in any way. This is not like those crazy cleanses. In fact, you’ll feel quite the opposite.
The reality is, no matter how clean we eat, we live in a very toxic world. Before we even open our mouths to take a bite of food, we are exposed to vehicular and industrial pollution in the air and toxins in our cleaning products and cosmetics. Not to mention the havoc wreaked on the body by stress. So, the question is not ‘am I toxic?’ but rather ‘how toxic am I?’
Ready to eliminate those toxins that cause weight gain, brain fog, loss of sleep, loss of mental clarity, and fatigue? I know I am!!
Here’s my Epic 24 Hour Reset:

Burning fat includes a good balance of diet and exercise. In terms of your nutrition, smoothies are a great place to burn fat. They often include fruits and other ingredients that help to give you energy and boost your metabolism. Give some of these smoothie recipes a try.
If you like mango fruit, then you will love this fun smoothie! It only uses a few simple ingredients and is very easy to make. Plus, it includes multiple ingredients that help to burn fat, including the mango, lime juice, and avocado. Don’t worry; it won’t taste like a vegetable. The sweetness of the fruit far outweighs the flavor of the avocado. Just get out your blender and add mango pieces, a mashed avocado, vanilla yogurt, and lime juice. You can add a little bit of sugar if you want, but it is not needed. Finish it off with some ice or half a frozen banana.
You can also use your favorite citrus fruits and combine them with ice and your choice of dairy product to make a sweet, creamy smoothie that helps you to lose weight. Some citrus fruits that usually go good are lemons, oranges, and grapefruit, but go ahead and use any combination of fruits you have at home. You want to make it creamy with a little bit of yogurt and some dairy-free milk. You can use flavored yogurt like lemon, or just plain fat-free yogurt. Add some ice and a little flaxseed for added fat burning potential.
Berries are at the top of the list for fruits that help to burn more fat and calories. Strawberries in particular contain a lot of antioxidants and are high in fiber, which helps you to increase your fat burning. You can make a simple smoothie with strawberries and other berries, with skim milk, yogurt, and flaxseed oil. For a thicker smoothie, add some oats to it.
Another version of the berry smoothie is one that contains blueberries. This provides a slightly different flavor, but the same health benefits of a strawberry or mixed berry smoothie. Plus, blueberries contain a lot of nutrients and antioxidants that make it a popular superfood. Blueberries taste great just with milk or yogurt and ice, but you can also add in raw honey or frozen banana instead of ice.
Try out your own combinations using these and other fruits.
