Are You Doing a Food Cleanse or Detox post Christmas?
The holidays are over and New Year’s resolutions are in full swing. I feel my body craving healthier, lighter food. All that heavy and rich food I ate during the holidays have left me a little bogged down. I now seriously crave more energy-boosting meals.I’m definitely not looking for a quick diet or juice cleanse, but more a food lover cleanse, which seems delicious, and lighter. Simple things like eating fresh salads, healthy smoothies, healthy one pot meals etc. are on my list.
