New Year's Cleanse

Yes, it's 2010 and time to get cracking on that healthy lifestyle! I'm sure you have friends o'plenty who revel in constant exercise, organic food, and even a cleansing experience to jump start the new year.

In theory, I'm in complete agreement with this philosophy. Everyone could do with a little housecleaning after the holiday snort fest. I've even considered the IZO Cleanse program, which consists of 12 juice drinks a day (delivered to your door in a cooler) for three to five days. People report glowing skin, increased energy, reduced bloat and a new attitude toward food. It all sounds well and good, except in order to do it, I'd have to have $450 bucks to spare and put up with no coffee for three to five days. That's not a cleanse, that's a crushingly foul caffeine withdrawal headache which will sap my will to live. And I assume that you have many friends in the same boat.

So start them off slowly. Instead of fresh, organic juices, order them the best fresh organic coffee available: Lamill. Lamill's coffee is literally the best I've ever tasted; when they say a coffee will have chocolate notes and a smooth finish, they're not blowing smoke. This is not Charbuck's, folks. Plus, they have organic varieties galore, for that healthy caffeine buzz. And what is a cup of coffee anyway, if not a "cleansing" experience? At around $16 a bag, it won't clean out your wallet, either.

Order from a vast store of coffee choices at Then, raise your mug and toast to your friend's newfound health for 2010.
