I made this guide because I’ve seen so many similar guides going around promoting seriously unhealthy intakes like 500-700 calories per day. A detox should be about cleansing yourself from unhealthy habits and clearing your system of “junk” and should focus on retraining yourself to focus on beneficial foods. This guide is filled with delicious, healthy, fresh foods that are still easy to prepare and that will set you up for a fantastic start or restart to your healthy lifestyle!
Being home for winter break is a great time to relax and be with family but it can also be hard, especially when you don’t have your University’s gym to use or all the food you’re accustomed to. I made this plan to help give relaxing days at home some structure. Although you might not have your favorite elliptical back at school for the next few weeks you can do plenty from home. Go outside to walk or jog, use whatever equipment you have at home or use one of the cardio plans available here right from your bedroom. Let’s make this holiday break healthy, productive and fit!

Love this idea, mostly because fresh herbs are crazy expensive and I never use them all up before they go bad: chop up your herbs and stick them into an ice cube tray, then cover with olive oil and freeze.
Toss a cube or two into your pan whenever you’re in need, and presto: fresh herbs, all winter long.
