Taco emojis for everyone! Here is a cleanse we can get behind!
Oh, wait. It's not a magical pill that allows us to eat Chipotle and Taco Bell every day without gaining an ounce? Hm, that is not what we expected when we saw the words "taco cleanse." But we do get to eat tacos! That's a plus.
The Taco Cleanse: The Tortilla-Based Diet Proven to Change Your Life was created by Wes Allison, Stephanie Bogdanich, Molly R. Frisinger and Jessica Morris after they discovered that eating tacos for breakfast, lunch and dinner for 30 days straight produced positive results. So what they're saying is that we are 30 days away from coming up with a best-selling cookbook of our own called The Pizza Cleanse: A Doughy Cheese Based Diet Proven to Blurrrrgggg, right?
How does this diet work? Well first, it's a vegan diet, so sorry if you were looking to lose some pounds with a carnitas-heavy intake. That doesn't mean these recipes aren't delicious, and there are over 75 to choose from. So if you're sick of feeling deprived when you start dieting, this might be something to check out.
"A group of vegan taco scientists in Austin, Texas, know just how you feel, and now reveal their one-of-a-kind cleansing journey that anybody can follow and stick to—the Taco Cleanse," reads the book description. "While the typical cleanse works by depriving you of your favorite foods, the plant-based Taco Cleanse rewards your body with what it naturally craves: tortillas, refried beans, guacamole!"
(Sidenote: "Vegan Taco Scientist" sounds like a job a contestant on The Bachelor would have.)
The Taco Cleanse teaches you how to make your own tortillas (they even have waffle tortilla recipes), how to make the tasty fillings (beer-battered Portobello mushrooms) and how you can give your margaritas a healthy twist.
"Even if you do nothing else, your mood will brighten in just 24 hours. Keep eating tacos and within a week your outlook will be noticeably improved," the book promises. "After 30 days, cleansers report lasting benefits—and you will, too!"
We actually believe that promise, because we always have a brighter outlook on life after ingesting tacos.
