Yesterday, we examined The 2 Week Diet and the recommended supplement list required to complete a rapid weight loss transformation in a matter of only two weeks! Next, let’s talk food…we heard what was on the list of don’t’s, so you’re probably wondering what you can eat for the next two weeks. The good news is that you can have a delicious breakfast smoothie every morning, an unlimited amount of low-glycemic foods, and as much Detox Broth as you can drink. Pretty easy, right? We thought so too, until we took a read through the twice-weekly process of cooking homemade vegetable broth and looked for an easy alternative.
