“No Detox Diet” Diet

You may have noticed your social media feeds are lousy with resolutions of eating healthy (guilty!), friends speak of nothing but cleanses and the gym is packed. All of this madness starts to fade away right about when Christmas decorations are taken down and packed away for next year. This year, instead of eating “healthy” I’m just trying to focus on eating “well”. Technically, they probably are all one and the same, but rather than counting calories, the goal is choosing food that is satisfying and tastes amazing.

Thanks to bon appétit I have my menu planned out for the next two weeks.
