Ok, so this might be really overly ambitious. But I’m going to try it, for real this time! Given the ridiculous amount of food and wine I’ve been consuming over the past month, and the fact that I’m returning to Italy in two weeks and will certainly do more of the same again then, it’s time for a break. I’m officially going to do a one week detox cleanse.
All-liquid cleanses seem kind of scary to me. I know myself. Let’s just say no good will come from me not eating solid foods for days. So, I’m going to try Gwenyth Paltrow’s GOOP cleanse. You cut out alcohol, soda and caffeine, and eat healthy recipes and smoothies for the week. Quite frankly, the recipes look delicious. I actually can’t wait to try the Salad with Carrot & Ginger Dressing.
Fellow blogger Karma Cucina piqued my interest in the cleanse when she wrote about her positive experience with it over the summer, and since then I’ve just been waiting for the right time to do it. (Quick aside: she’s the source of my favorite soup recipe ever and everyone really must try it.) Plus, Deb over at Smitten Kitchen has made the salad before and raved about it. Bottom line: give me two internet endorsements of something, and I’m in!
Wish me luck, friends.
