Spring is that time of the year when not only nature wakes up. We do too. We wake up to embrace the warm sun, the fascinating aromas of the blossoms, the emotions and experiences that the new season has to offer. Spring is also the time when most people start special detox programs and routines to clean their body, make it wake up too and get ready for the summer.
We are offering three of 2 Health App's light and fresh spring recipes that will fit into each and every spring detox plan. Give them a try!
