Fasting and Feasting

March 30, 2013


Holy week is always a wonderful time for clearing the heart (and body) thanks to lenten fasting…since this blog is about food I’ll be focusing on that particular element of the week we just finished… This year, in my journey into cleaner eating (that began approximately 9 months ago) and the regular detoxes that have […]
