It’s the first day of spring which means we’re looking forward to some spring cleaning… and that doesn’t just mean our closets! Since winter coats and heavy sweaters tend to hide the hibernation weight we’ve gained, we also like to clean up our eating habits before summer is upon us. Our adventures in spring cleansing have been varied, and like Goldilocks, it’s taken us some time to find one that’s just right.
We’ve tried the red carpet variety à la David Kirsch, a 48 hour drink only cleanse (“if you’re chewing, you’re cheating!”) which was way too drastic and we’ve tried Alejandro Junger’s 21 Day Clean Program which was way too long.
This year, we’re heeding the wise words of fellow blogger and nutritionist Leslie from Around the Table, who suggests a whole food meal plan along with some juicing as the best way to get clean in her recent post Go Ahead and Juice It!
Out with all the processed and sweetened food (and dairy and alcohol and coffee!) and in with the healthy grains, vegetables, fruits and legumes. Now, all we have to do is buy a juicer and cook up several batches of cleansing broth!
Do you clean up your diet as well as your closets?
