Sugar Detox Morning Shake

Part of my dietary journey this month involved a self imposed full detox from sugar, gluten, all grains and beans, processed foods, processed vegetable oils, alcohol and caffeine.

Eggsactly What the Doctor Ordered

Easter is just around the corner with it’s usual glut of chocolates and candies. I know I am not a popular parent with my policy of a new spring t-shirt and a novel for Easter!
