day 1. detox.

chicory salad with jasmine tea
Okay, so here's the deal. Back at the beginning of the year I did a detox/ cleanse, but honestly, I half-a**ed it. I did great with the food part, but not so much with the wine part, and that kind of defeats the purpose of a detox right? Plus I only did it for 14 days, whereas this time I will do the 21 day detox like I did back in the fall (which was amazing).

So anyway, I am half way through my final semester of my undergraduates program, I am exhausted, and feel not-so great. I am ready to be committed, so that I can push through until the end of the semester without completely losing my mind.

I will update you everyday, even if it is just a quick pic. The recipes, snack options & meals I share will be delicious, even if you are not detoxing.
