Here is her story...
Tarashaun Hausner, Head Blender Babe and Creator of The Blender Cleanse
I work full time and four evenings a week I drive my kids to soccer practice and music lessons.
Weekends are then filled with soccer games and kids activities.
With such a busy schedule I barely had time for anything. I was eating out a lot and had no energy to exercise.
Also, for the last 23 years I have had bouts of IBS.
While my IBS has decreased the last 5 years, I had a really bad episode shortly before the (January) Blender Cleanse group challenge began.
My symptoms were so horrible that it motivated me to do The Blender Cleanse.
I was looking for a plan to help me lose weight, get healthier, have more energy as a mom and follow through with some of my personal goals.

I knew [The Blender Cleanse] was the best choice for me when I saw the recipes and the plan.
I felt that it was possible with my busy schedule because it was so easily organized.
By the third day of The Blender Cleanse I felt lighter.
I even began to feel more positive in my thoughts.
I truly felt happier. I was amazed that I felt better so soon.
By day 5 my body felt less puffy.
I bent down to get a container from a low cupboard in my kitchen and I noticed I was more flexible.
On day 6 my son said, “Mom those smoothies are giving you a lot of energy”.
And they were. It was easier to get up in the morning.
I also wasn’t craving coffee like I usually do.
By the end of the cleanse I lost 5.4 lbs and 2 inches in my waist.
[Doing the LIVE Blender Cleanse Challenge] really was the best decision I have made in a long time.
I felt we were part of a small team and there was a warmth between the group members even though we didn't really know one another personally.
I loved that the Blender Cleanse was not about being perfect or body shaming, but about self love and self care.
It gave me the steps I needed to take to get healthier.
Also the recipes are great. I am still making them and continuing this way of eating!
The Blender Cleanse is a small step in the right direction of healthier living that can help you begin to transform your body and your life.
