Book: Go Clean, Sexy You: A Seasonal Guide to Detoxing and Staying Healthy
by Lisa Consiglio Ryan

First Line Teaser: Food is love.

Is it too soon to start talking about New Year’s Resolutions? Healthy eating during the holidays can be difficult, and let’s face it. Eating healthy food in general is difficult. So, I was quite excited to get the chance to review Go Clean, Sexy You, a book filled with recipes and seasonal detox plans. I don’t know about you, but when I think about a detox, I imagine days of fasting and only drinking juice. This is not that kind of detox.

Lisa encourages readers to cut out certain foods, such as dairy, caffeine, gluten and soy, and to eat plenty of clean produce, such as avocados and pineapple. Her book is full of soups, salads, smoothies, and other treats She, also, tells you what kitchen gear you will need and includes a menu plan and shopping list for each detox.

Since I haven’t had a lot of time with this book, I only tried a couple of recipes, but I loved the Spicy Sweet Potato Soup. So good on a cold day!

  1. Johnathan Strange and Mr. Norrell is SUCH a slow read. I’ve read a short story by the same author set in the same universe that I really enjoyed so, wanted to love the book but…. couldn’t ever finish it.

    Jane Erye is one I’ve never managed to finish despite trying to read it multiple times. It might be one I give up on. I know the Bronte sisters are all that but…. sigh.
