Aliciouslife: Detox

Some things really get me off the wrong foot when they appear in my morning Facebook/ Instagram/ email feed. The word “detox“, for instance, always seems to hit exactly that nerve.

Especially now, with all those (often questionable) New Year’s resolutions, People will spend hundreds of euros/ dollars/ pounds on a couple of days worth of juices which all have in common that they are of strange colour and often rather nauseating taste. Oh, and have I mentioned that they are useless too? Continue reading Aliciouslife: Detox

Only recently did I come across an article of someone claiming that for whatever reason you became vegan in the first place, those who stick to it will increasingly see the political dimension. At first I thought “not me”, but when thinking about it I realized how spot-on he was. Continue reading Aliciouslyvegan: Continuing my journey
