Thinking of a dietary cleanse might not conjure up images of filling meals, but THE WELL Cleanse isn’t a regular cleanse — it’s an enlightening 15-day reset without deprivation.

The program is designed to restore gut health, boost energy, clear skin and make losing weight manageable. This process involves eating whole foods and eliminating those that might potentially cause inflammation (such as dairy, grains, alcohol and sugar). If you’re looking for options that fall within cleanse-approved guidelines, you’re in luck: there are tons of recipes to try along the way.

Below, some of our favorite recipes to nourish you as you experience THE WELL Cleanse.
