I came across Bon Appétit’s “Food Lover’s Cleanse” a few days ago while browsing their website (something I do at least 2-3 times a week) and really, can we say YUM?? Speaking from experience, I have become completely against fad diets and crash detoxes, but I must say that this doesn’t look like a traditional “cleanse” to me at all. While it is intended to be a detox challenge for the first two weeks of January, it is all about healthy, balanced eating, and getting lots of nutrients from a relatively low-carb, high-protein eating regimen full of fresh, colorful, seasonal ingredients. And just because we’re two weeks into the year already, doesn’t mean you can’t start it now. It includes a fortnight’s worth of creative, healthy and easy-to-make recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks, complete with a shopping guide and some handy make-ahead suggestions…and the best part is that it really does not sound like much of a sacrifice!
Check it out here, and bon appétit!
In good health,
