About a month and a half ago, our good friend, holistic nutritionist Andrea Sarjeant of Healthy Delicious got in touch with me to asked me if I wanted to join her upcoming group cleanse. Having been through an eventful Fall season, I jumped at the chance to join and regain some much needed discipline. Although scared of what I’d be missing, I knew I’d be gaining much more.

Sometimes it takes a village of your virtual friends to cheer you on and let me tell you, there were days that the encouragement kept me going.
