the annual crunchy radish clean up

Happy New Year Vegheads! Today starts my annual crunchy radish clean up. Every year I like to provide readers with 5 days of clean eats to help reset the system after the holiday season. My clean ups are not reliant on juice cleanses, detoxing, or sustaining yourself on processed protein powders. Instead, the focus is on EATING real whole foods.

There is always such a positive momentum generated by healthy eating on January 1st, but how do you sustain that enthusiasm past the first month of the year and continue eating and living well into February and beyond? To help you get the year started on a positive and properly nourished note, I will be kicking off my mostly plant-based, carefully curated meal plan full of REAL food to get you reset for 2018.
