I recently met a lovely woman named Noelle, the voice behind the blog GreenLemonade.com. Her blog is focused on wellness—cleansing your body and your life—but without resorting to extreme dieting, fasting, kooky rituals, or bizarre beauty products. Noelle started GreenLemonde.com after trying a liquid-only detox for several days and hating it. “I missed chewing,” she told me. So she started sharing easy tips and tricks for living a cleaner, feel-better life that women could incorporate into their everyday routines.
I’ve toyed with the idea of doing some kind of intense detox (remember the Master Cleanse and the BluePrint Cleanse?), but honestly, I just can’t see myself blocking out several days of my life to drink water with maple syrup and cayenne pepper. I mean, my job is all about food. Heck, my life revolves around food. Plus, I’m not convinced that a drastic detox is necessary or even beneficial.
