Detox Salad

I don’t really believe in the science behind detoxifying foods so I rarely eat anything with the intention of it actually detoxifying my body.

Besides… what exactly am I detoxing away?  That pizza I enjoyed this weekend? The extra 12 cookies I ate at the last baby shower I attended? The sixteen pounds of trail mix (heavy on the chocolate chips) I ate on my last road trip? The decision to make white rice instead of brown rice earlier this week?

That being said, these so-called detoxifying salads/juices/smoothies tend to be really tasty and full of fruits, veggies, and nuts.

Detoxifying? No.

Eating delicious foods? Yes.
