Last month I finished copy edits on my first cook book – Skinny Juices, 101 Juice Recipes for Detox and Weight Loss (coming out in June!).

I eat processed food.  And so do you.  It’s almost impossible not to. Food is “processed” as a matter of course to get it from the farm (or factory) to your table.  But wait, if you’ve done my detox or worked with me privately you know I’m all about clean eating and avoiding processed food. So […]
