Everyday Detox

A healthy guide to detoxing naturally, all year round–no dieting, juice fasting, or calorie counting required–to lose weight, improve digestion, sleep better, and feel great, featuring 100 properly combined recipes for every meal of the day. 

Most diets and cleanses have all-or-nothing rules that encourage unhealthy cycles of intense restriction followed by inevitable bingeing. In this healthy guide to detoxing naturally, nutritionist and blogger Megan Gilmore shares 100 delicious, properly combined recipes that will leave you feeling satisfied and well nourished while promoting weight loss and improving digestion and sleep.

Everyday Detox by Megan Gilmore looked like it would be a good starting cookbook for my family. We are really working hard at trying to eliminate processed food from our diets but this is definitively a marathon people!!

I couldn’t try some of the juices since I do not have a juicer anymore but I must say the strawberry basil smoothie was pretty good. I also enjoyed the stuffed sweet potatoes. ( I do love a good sweet potato)

My biggest beef with cookbooks is usually the pictures (or lack thereof). I felt with Everyday Detox some of the pictures were of recipes I didn’t need to see yet I was craving to see a bunch that didn’t have pictures. Also if you are going to put meat into your chart as part of the detox please feel free to have just a couple of meat recipes to go along with the chart.

Overall the recipes were simple and not complicated. While I am not sure about the science behind food combinations and gut cleansing, there is always room for more veggies and fruit in one’s diet.
