Bon Appetit Magazine’s 2012 Food Lover’s Cleanse

Feeling intimidated by your peers’ exclamations to “detox”-this and “cleanse”-that in the new year? Worried about all those foods that you’ll have to give up and the money you’ll end up spending just to shed those last few pounds? Well, don’t be. This month’s Bon Appetit magazine has come to the rescue: A two-week, healthy cooking challenge. And not just any cooking challenge, but one for food lovers. From black cod and cider-glazed chicken, to grass-fed steaks with chimichurry, this cleanse looks to keep even the snootiest food snob content and feeling healthier and more energetic.

You won’t see much butter or bread in the regime, but the creator made sure to include a fair share of dark chocolate (must’ve been a woman) to keep it’s followers heart healthy and full of antioxidants. And to make it just that much easier, the cleanse comes complete with recipes for week one and week two, and a downloadable shopping list, conveniently divided into categories like “week one produce,” “dairy,” and “proteins” (again, must’ve been a woman).
