My 21 Days of Sugar Detox

A few days ago I finished Diane Sanfilippo’s 21 Day Sugar Detox. I used both the book with the same title and the corresponding cookbook with over 100 additional recipes. I can honestly say that I had a great experience overall and learned a lot. Having a plan like this made me cook much more […]
