Cleansing foods, clean foods, eat this not that!
All of these titles but what really is the message?
Clean food are foods not in a box, or are they?
Bottom line, cleansing process should not be from a box instead, food Rx is recommended. Up to four times per year is recommended that you come clean. Literally!
Come clean from what?? I eat healthy!
You may eat healthy; however, the toxins are everywhere- you can’t escape them! Your immune system starts in the digestive system and is vulnerable to many toxins, not just in food, everyday.
Daily regime is like a cup of coffee. Take warm water, lemon juice and cayenne and knock it out, start fresh and begin your day.
