5 Apple Cider Vinegar Detox Recipes

Post Holiday Blues from Sugar?

This is in fact a real thing, it's not all in your head! Getting back in the swing of things can be tough for all of us.

The holidays are sort of a 'free-for-all' when it comes to consumption of food and alcohol. Also, sleeping during any hours of the day to overcome your food and sugar crashes is accepted during this time.

This makes it difficult to get back on schedule in the new year. To adhere, to a healthy routine with regimented meals and having to listen to an alarm clock, it can be hard.

Your Post Holiday Blues are due largely in part to your body's reaction to over consumption of food and sugar.

It can be hard to overcome, but the good news is you don't have to take it all on in one day. Below are our 5 favorite sugar cleansing recipes that have proven to work.
