How To Detox After Vacation (or anytime!)

Juice in Cusco

No. I’m not making out with my juice. This is what happens when I find juice on vacation. I cherish every ounce of goodness… This was a mix of carrots, cucumbers, celery and sprouts. It was one of my only pure vegetables juices I had while traveling last month. I had it in Cusco, Peru, where juice was available all over the place…but we were sadly only there a few days.

I had never before in all my travels (all 7 continents!) seen an 100% organic room service breakfast menu – much less complimentary! It was an incredible sight….

This was a great start for my stay in Baltimore, MD. This hotel is conveniently located near the largest natural products show on the east coast – Natural Products Expo East – which I attended earlier this fall. The Inn is completely eco-friendly and has a total of 12 suites – my suite was ridiculously large (ridiculous in a good way – I had to explain this use of the word to my mother the other day). I had my own living room, desk, kitchenette (sooooo important for my daily habits!), king size bed and a huge bathroom with a jet tub - the kind of jets that are pipeless and don’t harbor germs – and all the water was filtered – yes filtered! Can you say home away from home?
