Is This Really a Detox Recipe?
For my 4th installment of the “5 Days, 5 Detox Recipes” series, I'm including a recipe for Turkey Bolognese.
Yes, Turkey Bolognese.
I know it doesn't seem like a detox recipe, but my detox programs are definitely different than most.
For starters, we get to eat! And I don't mean just carrot and celery sticks — we get to enjoy satisfying, hearty, flavorful meals.
One of the reasons many people are initially afraid of signing up for a detox is because they're afraid they'll be starving and cranky.
Which can be true, if you're fasting or doing a juice cleanse.
But most people don't need to do a fast or juice cleanse. At least not in the beginning of their journey to improved health.
Most people come to me simply because they want to get off processed foods.
Or ditch their daily sugar and/or caffeine and/or wine habit.
And to lose weight, of course.
My clients might come to me primarily to lose weight, but they leave with so much more than being able to fit into their skinny jeans.
By the end of a detox program, my clients have learned how to prepare and enjoy real food.
And they've also discovered the foods that can help them increase energy, clear up their skin, minimize headaches, improve blood sugar stabilization, and help resolve other health issues.
And all it takes is 28 days.

If you're curious about the detox, you can “test drive” the program by making a batch of this delicious Turkey Bolognese this weekend — just click on the link below to get the recipe!
I like to serve the sauce with Zucchini Noodles. Making noodles out of veggies is a great way to enjoy your pasta, without getting that overly full feeling that can happen with refined carbohydrates like pasta and bread. Plus, you get an extra dose of nutrients and antioxidants — yay!
