Time for a Thanksgiving cleanse
Placeholder Image
Since my family is traveling for Thanksgiving, I’ve decided to do a cleanse to celebrate the holidays. Instead of yummy, yummy turkey and my family’s typical conch, pigeon peas and rice (my two Bahamian favorites) and my grandmother’s homemade coconut bread, I will be sipping on mostly fresh vegetable juice, smoothies, and a small amount of vegetables and fruits, as needed, for the next several days -- 20 days to be exact. Since I’ll get a five-day head start with my family gone, it will be a lot easier to maintain the fast without any temptation when they return; it usually takes me a few days to kick my many daydreams about dessert, so I’m thankful for the time alone.
