I felt 100% better after consuming wholesome food packed with nutrients on a regular basis. Let me tell you – detox isn’t easy as it requires effort and patience because avoiding coffee, dairy , eggs , sugar , processed foods and all the tempting stuff is bound to test your will power to the maximum.

Please note: If this is your first time, you might feel a little cranky and irritable after 72 hours have passed. This is a result of the symptoms of withdrawal and detoxification.

Ok, we won't lie we were drawn to the simple Japanese inspired recipes first, but the idea of neutralizing our palates after the holiday glut of rich heavy foods also appealed to us.

We do! So delving right into the macrobiotic detox was easy, especially after receiving the bi-weekly Organics-To-You delivery.
