since ive started working at a health based market (go figure i work in the dept that is ALL things i can’t enjoy during the next 12 days), i have started embracing natural health alternatives. so why not do a detox? not one of those bs lemon and cayenne pepper things but a real detox, one that i can eat more than kale & drink more than lemon water. after talking to my health gurus at work, i decided on the Wild Rose Herbal D-Tox. i bought it, took it home, opened the package, read the booklet & freaked the hell out! my first thought was i can’t do this! after talking to my gurus at work again, my fears were eased & i started my cleanse today.
considering i don’t eat a lot of gluten & not a ton of dairy (mostly just cheese), i am in good shape to begin with. booze however, is my downfall. i did some research & having a glass or 2 of wine wont completely kill your detox, just try to stay away from it as much as possible. i was confused about a few things like coconut milk & tomatoes, but some blog research gave me quick easy answers. there are even recipes on the website of doctor who created this detox. plus, of course pinterest has a ton of recipes as well.
i had bacon (uncured), organic eggs cooked in BUTTER & spinach for breakfast. not a bad start. i have a list of recipes that i have made up in my head, a grocery list full of detox friendly foods & am ready to tackle the next 12 days!
so, obviously i will be posting updates, recipes & tips (if i have any) over the next 12 days. wish me luck!
