New Year’s Eve is one night where booze flows like water and the food-binge knows no bounds. It’s a time to party like there’s no tomorrow… except there actually is one.
A tomorrow where you wake up looking like the aftermath of a Tsunami; your head spinning with a nasty hangover and a vague memory of what happened last night.
Now, before you go on a guilt trip thinking about how much you drank and gorged, just look at the new year as opportunity to make up for it.
By eating clean, fresh and green of course.
