Man, am I hungry! The Body+Soul edit team started the Action Plan detox today--we wanted to do all 4 days while in the office for camaraderie and moral support, and also so our assistant editor Ana could help us juice up batches of breakfast. Unfortunately today the produce delivery didn't arrive 'til 11, so those of us who came to work without having had our regular coffee, muffin, or other bad a.m. habit were fading fast! We finally got the almond butter/peach/cardamom smoothie underway (poor Ana had to sit under a desk with the blender due to lack of another accessible outlet), and found it to be watery and overpowered by the cardamom (sipping the concoction out of red wine glasses, the only vessels we could locate, didn't help the feeling of deprivation). So senior editor Terri Trespicio (fresh from her appearance this morning on the Martha Show) took matters in hand and poured all of the frozen peaches into the blender with some ice water, proclaiming that we needed to get more creative with everything on the "okay" list (where was the almond milk when we needed it?). We all sucked down what was essentially a melted peach Froz-Fruit, toasted our new endeavor, and prayed for lunch (solid food!). So glad you'll all be doing the Action Plan with us! We want to hear from you throughout the month--and if you have any questions don't hesitate to ask one of our on-call experts.
--Alex, editor-in-chief, Body-and-Soul
