A few weeks ago, I made a New Year's resolution that I would give myself a jump-start to healthier eating by kicking it off with a five-day detox, which consisted mostly of vitamin-packed shots in the morning, chocolate-flavored protein shakes for breakfast, and lemon-dressed salads for lunch and dinner.
