Blend the Kaeng Raeng good- with plenty of water- it’s got psyllium husk in there
Kaeng Raeng is a simple, easy to use detox plan from a company who supports animal rights (the Humane Society) and the vegan lifestyle- kind of (they recommend adding honey to their detox mix, which isn’t vegan because it comes from an animal- the bee, who is on the brink of destruction because of environmental toxins and domestication).
The Kaeng Raeng detox works like this: One purchases a Beginner plan for $65. This includes 3 meal replacements (more on that in a moment) for 3 days (another plan is available for a 6 day detox). In addition to these meal replacements, one drinks at least 64 ounces of water daily (not to include the water added to the mixes) and eats raw fruits and vegetables. The meal replacement is the star of the Kaeng Raeng show. The main ingredients are fruit, non-GMO soybeans, psyllium husk, and probiotics. Your vitamins and minerals, protein, and fiber are packed into a little pouch. Probiotics are added for good measure. Add liquid and drink. So, a beginner plan will set you back about $7 per pouch (meal) in addition to what you spend on produce and clean water. This is far cheaper than an HMO copay, lab bloodwork, regimen of pharmaceuticals, or an average therapy session, not to mention the “pits of old age” that people complain about. It’s pretty convenient too, especially compared to preparing your own detox foods and making sure they have adequate nutrients, protein, and fiber.
Kaeng Raeng sent us some meal replacement pouches to try, so we did. Basic mixing instructions are to add with 24-32 ounces of water, vegan milk, or fruit juice. They say that you can also blend with frozen fruit and ice. Did I mention this stuff contains psyllium husk? For those unfamiliar, psyllium husk comes from the seed of a plantago plant. It is a perfect fiber for humans because it is indigestible- it cleans you out real good. It also becomes extremely gelatinous and thick when mixed with liquid. I found that 32 ounces of liquid is the minimum you need to put in the Kaeng Raeng mix. I used more, and I put it in a blender. I could not get it to mix well otherwise. However, after using so much water, it became rather weak in taste. Kaeng Raeng states that beginner detoxees may want to blend with another liquid such as milk or fruit juice. I believe it is counterproductive to detox with milks since they are processed and contain fats, and also with most fruit juices since they contain added sugars. Kaeng Raeng says “first time users may also enjoy adding sugar, honey, or yogurt.” Other than trying to make the detox drink appealing to those new to detox, I don’t understand why Kaeng Raeng would encourage adding what amounts to “toxins” to a detox. Yes, detox can be hard, but that’s the point. Getting rid of built-up toxins in the body ain’t gonna be easy. I think it’s great that Kaeng Raeng has made available a healthy and nutritious meal replacement for detoxing, but I don’t think they should encourage such nonsense. This stuff is 7 bucks a pouch and you’re putting your effort and commitment into it as well- I would not recommend adding sugar, fats, or other processed foods to it- you’d be defeating the purpose.
