Q: Alina, can you share some easy ways to do a detox? I don't think I can do just juices or water, which I hear can be great. Do you have any ideas for things that are easier to make than a juice, maybe less expensive too? And also, I don't like cold foods too much. Anything you can do that's warm or hot?
A: Great questions and I have 3 recipes I can share that are eAZy to make and can satisfy your cravings for hot, cold and room temperature treats.
In this video with my friend Moon I share my recipes for a chia berry water, hot detox soup and a smoothie. They are very eAZy and you can make them all in advance, so you can grab-and-go later.
Also, check out Moon's videos on her YouTube channel- she has amazing content!
