“No Detox Diet” Diet

Food & Entertainment

breakfast-pomegranate-yogurt-parfait-1880x1120You 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.

    Well done. I’m not a nutrition expert but I find that incorporating a wide variety of “normal” ingredients into meals is sufficient for a great diet and not too straining on the purse. I think I could see some value in superfoods but as per my experience (which is limited), the greatest thing about eating well really is to cook regularly, experiment, and make colourful meals. I’m not sure why I’m talking about superfoods when this post isn’t even about that! Maybe I just have an association (via instagram) between health and acai or goji berries lol.
