This is the time of year that I really start craving fresh, raw foods.  After a few months of gluttony and heavy eating through the holidays my body really needs a break from heavy rich dishes.  Starting today I’m going on a 21 day cleanse to see if I can cut out processed food, caffeine and refined sugar from my diet.  I’m not following any particular plan but I’m hoping that I can change some bad habits and feel better in the process.  I have been looking at a lot of diets out there and some of them seem so radical I know that I won’t be able to stick with them.  I just want to cook fresh healthy food and restore my body and my mind.  Eating more healthfully doesn’t mean that I can’t still share some great recipes with you all.  So I hope that you will follow along with me as I start this new journey.


When I eat a salad like this, bright, clean and refreshing it makes me wonder why I want to eat any other way.  This is a super simple salad starring tart juicy grapefruits.  This is a combination that I never get tired of, naturally sweet dates, mint and the licorice flavor of fennel make this one of my all time favorite salads.
