Just because something’s sold in a health food store doesn’t mean it's good for YOU!

I’m half-way through my 40 days and 40 nights of The Nourishing Cleanse with Amanda Love. Her program is only 7 days, but when I got to day 6, I looked at my husband and said, “This is awesome. I want to take this all the way. Let’s complete the spiritual cycle of 40 d...
