How far along are you? 20 weeks 1 day Cravings? Lately food has really sounded unappealing to me and my appetite seems to either be raging or completely non-existent.

For me, detox is never about juice cleanses or major restrictions, just focusing on putting as many nutrients into my body as possible in the form of veggies, whole grains and lots and lots of water. Of course, being pregnant has made the whole “eating nutritious foods” fairly difficult, but I’m trying my best. This pregnancy has been rather strange; some … Read More
