Need more convincing? How about that before my detox, I couldn't survive a day without a few cups of coffee, something sweet after every meal, and carbs with every meal. And when I say carbs, I mean the most decadent bread or pastas; not exactly whole grain, healthy carbs. And when I say sweets, let's just say that ice cream didn't last long in my house. Modifying your diet for a couple of weeks does wonders to how your body reacts to the foods you feed it and how foods actually taste. I can't even eat some of the sweets that I was accustomed to devouring because they are too sweet now. Never thought I'd say that!
If you aren't ready to commit two weeks to a detox, try a few days; every little bit counts. Here are a few detox recipes that I love. Even though I'm officially done with my detox, I plan on continuing to make these recipes because they are tasty and great for you. Let me know if you have a favorite detox recipe--I'd love to add more to my repertoire.
