New Year – The Best Time to Start a Cleanse
The new year is here again and the perfect opportunity to get back on track with a clean healthy diet. I like to start out with a 3 Day Detox Cleanse.  Or 3 days of juiced vegetables with plenty of greens to clear your head and boost calcium and energy levels. Then onto fruits and vegetables only, with delicious dressings, for another 4 days.  The last 3 weeks of January just add protein and you have a weight loss diet you can go back to whenever you need to.

Put It on Anything
You can put this healthy, nutrition-packed and very tasty dressing on a steaming bowl of fresh broccoli accompanied by a fresh raw salad.  Finding ways to eat clean, low-calorie power packed vegetables is key to maintaining vibrant health. We can so easily fall off track during the holidays.  The new year is always a wonderful time to re-focus our goals and get back to eating healthy, disease-preventing meals. Here is another delicious dressing for you to try, Low Calorie, Easy to Make Ranch Dressing.
