green smoothieHave you ever done a detox? At the conference last week I went to a few discussions where detoxes were discussed. In general, I am hesitant to recommend cleanses (especially the all-juice kind), but they can be beneficial for some, especially as a way to hit the “reset” button and get on track with healthier habits. There are so many different kinds, it’s really important to do your homework and select the approach most appropriate for your body and your lifestyle. Safety is key.

Though weekends are usually thought of more as a time to pre- or re-tox, I came across this great post on Glamour‘s Vitamin G blog the other day and wanted to share. Click the link to see some tips from Marissa Vicario, a board-certified health coach and healthy-living expert, on important things you should do and ask yourself before starting a detox. My favorite two items are these questions:

  • Why do you want to do it?
  • How do you want to feel every day?

And on a completely opposite note, have you seen this video yet? Dunkin’ Love—Coffee on ice, Coffee on ice! Oh yes.
