In this week’s detox, we’re focusing on food since eating healthy isn’t just increasing the amount of fruits and vegetables you eat. Often times those fruits and vegetables can contain pesticides, meat contains added hormones, and pre-packaged foods contain additives. To the naked eye, these foods might seem healthy, but in reality they could be depleted of all of their nutrients and harmful to both the environment and the food chain.
