We’ve heard a lot about detox diets and cleansing regimes but have never actually taken the plunge and tried one for ourselves. Besides, it’s cheese season in Switzerland, and convincing us to eat light means having to pry that milky, fatty goodness from our chubby fingers…
But the winter that never really started is almost over and spring is just around the corner, so we were intrigued when Wendy Vanhonacker contacted us about her recently launched company “Fit n’ Tasty” and her fresh, homemade detox smoothies that could be delivered directly to us at home.
The detox program can be done in 1, 3 or 5 days. There are two varieties – the “Color Detox” which is for newbies like us trying detox for the first time and the “Green Detox” which is hardcore.
We decided to give the 1-day “Color Detox” a try. We placed the order online giving details about when we wanted the smoothies to arrive and where they should be left.
The night before, they were waiting for us as expected – and in an isotherm bag which ensured they would stay fresh and cool until we got home and brought them inside.
Included in the bag is a manual that guides you through the day of detox. For example, at lunch, you are allowed to prepare your own meal according to certain guidelines in order to preserve the cleansing experience. Everything you need to know is there.
We were surprised to find how satisfying the smoothies were. They were delicious enough to please even the pickiest eaters – not the image that we’ve always had of detox diets! We even needed to ask that the smoothies be slightly modified due to some food intolerances, and Wendy was happy to accommodate. We were highly impressed by the level of customization that was possible: home delivery, personalized service and all of it with as many local products as possible.
And you know how much The Lausanne Guide loves local products ;).
If you’re interested in giving a detox a try, we highly recommend this Lausanne-based service! Use the code LAUSANNE_GUIDE when you place your order for a 15% discount on your purchase of a detox or any other products on the site, including their fresh, balanced meal home delivery plan. Good during the month of March 2014.
*Fit n’ Tasty kindly offered to let us try the program for free, but we only review products that we truly love!
