3 Reasons for a Fall Cleanse

3 Reasons for a Fall Cleanse

So you may be wondering… Isn’t cleansing a Spring thing? Why cleanse in the Fall? To be honest, I used to think the same thing. Doing a juice fast in the fall or winter just doesn’t make sense unless you live in Hawaii (I wish!). The difference is Seasonal Cleansing. A Seasonal Cleanse helps you gently […]

This is how I looked in my 20’s. No I didn’t like how I looked.

This is how I looked in my 20’s. No I didn’t like how I looked.

This is how I looked in my 20’s. No, I did not like how I looked. More importantly I plain and simple didn’t feel good. I would come home from sitting all day at my office job (that I hated), make dinner (or get takeout) and watch TV while I ate. I ate a junk […]

Cherry Cacao Smoothie

Cherry Cacao Smoothie

I have to admit, all I can think of on a hot summer’s day is a bowlful of frosty, creamy, you-know-what (ice-cream!!). What’s wrong with that? Nothing… except sugar and dairy are on my eat infrequently list. New Englanders are known for their love of ice-cream. There are at least 5 ice-cream and froyo stores […]

Sugar and Dealing with Emotions

Sugar and Dealing with Emotions

It’s so easy when I’m on a cleanse not to eat any sugar. It’s a welcome reminder of how great I feel without it. I feel clearer, calmer and way more energetic. It’s not that I eat a lot of sugar either – especially not refined sugar. But when I don’t have a strong boundary […]

A Cleanse? I can’t do that!

A Cleanse? I can’t do that!

If you think cleanses are for other people – but not you.If you think that cleansing = starvation.If you think you couldn’t possibly cleanse unless you’re away on retreat. Think again. I’ve had 100’s of men and women try my cleanses and most of them weren’t sure if they could do it the first time […]
