Red, red wine
We should strictly have taken this one out on the first day, when we junked artificial additives, but for many of us, especially over here in the UK, alcohol is so much a part of the fabric of our lives that it merits a little more ceremony somehow!

Moo-ve over, cow's milk!
Have you ever considered how unusual it is for us to drink cow's milk, when so many of us are weaned on mother's milk? These two milks were 'designed' for two different species! One reason why so many of us have a lactose intolerance – many of us, that we don't even know about!

The road to heaven...
... is paved with good intentions! With three more days of the detox diet to go, today might be a good time to reflect on what the diet has done for us - and to set some intentions for positive changes we'd like to make in our lives as a result.

Weaning ourselves off the detox diet needs to be undertaken with as much sensitivity as we undertook the process of taking the foods out of our diets in the first place. Take it slow. Be gentle (more...)
