No matter if you're on a cleanse or trying to follow a healthy diet it's important to stock your kitchen well. You may be new to the whole foods plant-based way of eating or simply looking for ideas on what to eat for your January detox, either way here's a video of suggestions followed by a list of foods to buy on your next shopping trip.



In this video I mention these 6 books are resources for healthy eating information and recipes:

 

I combined my personal experience and research with details from these books to put together this list of foods that are perfect for a month-long vegan cleanse and long-term diet. For details on why I chose them I recommend reading Crazy Sexy Diet - it's a quick read with great summaries on how these foods effect your health. Of course you can add in more foods like fruits, just be wary of their sugar content. If you're not too sensitive to gluten, add in some more whole grains. Most importantly, but entirely organic - if unavailable, only buy items that are part of the Clean 15.
