Every spring I do a 4-week cleanse and I wanted to share with you what I eat on a typical day during this time of the year.
As you might know, I’m a big fan of starting your day with a warm glass of lemon water. Lately, I’ve been trying different variations of preparing lemon water and this one, made with chia seeds, is one of my favourites.
While on the cleanse, I have a green juice or a green smoothie for breakfast every day. I usually change up the ingredients depending on what I have in the fridge. This time I decided to add a couple tangerines to my smoothie for a… Read More
