Detox your life

I’ve been a bit sluggish lately.  Both mentally, physically, and emotionally. I’ve decided to cleanse myself and follow these simple recipes & food choices.  Hopefully I stick to this plan and see how effective it is to relieving my sluggish ways.

I’ve decided to follow a detox plan that is featured on Gwyneth Paltrow’s Goop website.
