Has your food coma lifted yet? I’m pretty sure I saw at least 20 people carrying green juice or some form of a cleansing beverage as I went about my day. The spirit of Holiday food is weighing heavy on us (literally) and the idea of meal planning or even eating may be the last thing you want to think about right now. But before you swear off of food for the next month, maybe check out tonight’s recipe. I’m a full supporter of short-term juice cleanses and I will be talking about some of my favourite cleanses this month.
