We have a hard time forgoing one of life's sweetest gifts - healthy, hearty meals - all for the sake of flat abs and thigh gaps. And if you're a daily reader of this website, you'll know that we'll always believe in overall wellness over physical fitness.

Still, we can't deny the healing benefits of cutting back our sugar, caffeine and processed foods intake, so we enlisted the help of La Petite Peach blogger Desiree Spinner to create a week's worth of delicious, nutritious recipes that will cleanse your body using foods closest to nature. We tried to steer clear of meat, dairy, white flour and sugar - all known to zap the delicate balance of energy - but please note, the purpose of this cleanse is not to lose weight. Instead, we're shooting for a clearer mind, cleaner body. Let's go!:
