My Detox Diary

DetoxDiary_LemonWater_hefe

Have you been contemplating a cleanse but aren’t sure you can handle comfort-food deprivation while powering through busy days? I recently test-drove a detox (my first!) that actually lets you eat—we’re talking unlimited fresh, organic fruits and veggies. The whole foods-based Conscious Cleanse isn’t aimed at weight loss as much as it is on feeling more energetic, looking vibrant, and flushing out toxins from the environment and processed foods. When I started this cleanse, I thought my diet was pretty clean. But Nutrition Therapist Jo Schaalman and Certified Health Coach Julie Peláez, the coauthors of The Conscious Cleanse: Lose Weight, Heal Your Body and Transform Your Life in 14 Days, showed me how my diet was in need of a […]

The Side Show

2581-large_Caprese Salad.jpg

Side dishes are sometimes afterthoughts or made only to accompany the main dish or entrée. What was the last side dish you had at a BBQ or summer party that stood out and really made you do a double take? Here are three simple tips to make your summer side dishes stars. First, it should be easy for you to make. Take the classic Caprese Salad. Slice and layer. And if you’re using heirloom tomatoes, you’ll see some swoons from the folks digging in. Secondly, it needs to be memorable. Anyone can toss together a potato salad. But when you serve up the Potato Salad with Blue Cheese and Bacon Dressing, people will walk right past the entrée for seconds of […]

Nothing Fishy About This Farmed Fish

When searching for the healthiest, most environmentally friendly fish to offer our customers, Door to Door Organics considered many factors, including the type of fish, how it was raised and caught, and its ecosystem.

But the EDF finds that wild salmon from Alaska are low in contaminants, which is exactly why we partnered with Kaleb Walker from Kaleb’s Katch, a Colorado fisherman who fishes Alaska’s waters to provide us with salmon and halibut that’s certified sustainable by the Marine Stewardship Council. When […]
