Detox Week 3: Cheating + Juice Cleansing

And on the third week, she fell of the wagon with three glasses of Pinot, seventeen potato chips and four salted caramels. I consumed them with my detox support group so it doesn’t really count, right? Seriously though. My indescrections paled in comparison to the pan of lasagna I fantasize about. And they tasted all the more sweeter because it was a special treat. Like a vacation after the worst week ever. I felt guilty, but not terribly. Then it was back to business with a day of juicing and nuts and seeds. It’s so much easier now that Suja raw organic juices are available at Whole Foods (looks like the locations haven’t been updated). Juicing at home will always be freshest, but it’s also incredibly messy and time-consuming. These are cold-pressed beauties are perfect in a pinch or if you are serious about doing a 3 or 5 day cleanse. I like every flavor but Glow is, unsurprisingly, my favorite.

Have a healthy week!
