It seems as though everyone is kicking off the new year with some sort of juice cleanse. I am not one of them. I'm cutting down on alcohol (since, you know, I had a drink or 5 every day of the Holidays) but nothing is changing with my eating habits. Moderation is my motto and I accept that this means that I won't be a Size 2, like, ever - and I'm ok with that. I love food way too much to prohibit myself from eating things like Rosemary Chicken Lasagna, Sweet Potato Gnocchi with Brown Butter Balsamic Sauce, Smashed Potatoes with Garlic, Lemon Zest, Parsley and Parmesan, or Italian Rigatoni Pie (!!). Besides, I live in Canada. It's -30 degrees on some winter days and I don't want to eat salad. I want carbs, gooey cheese and red meat. I'm not saying one should eat Big Macs everyday (although that doesn't sound half bad) but it's nice to find a balance between treating yourself to the things you love and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. This is not a way of eating that works for everyone but it works for me.
I'm curious, have you ever tried a cleanse? Do they work?
