    Summertime is a good cleansing time for processed foods. Time to get them out of your system. If they're processed that means they are loaded with salt, sugars, fat and far more other ingredients that offer no nutritional value nor understanding. Summer is the best time to cleanse your diet of all things processed: bagged snacks, canned foods, sweets (cookies, ice creams), boxed cakes, Hamburger Helper, Rice-A-Roni. Processing takes foods away from their natural state, and the farther they go, the worse the food is for us.

      Very true, but come on purple - chocolate is soooo yummy!  Admittedly, the sweet ambrosia of chocolate is my weakness.  When it comes to that food "group", it's often a "eat now, repent later" scenario.

    Yes, it's a good idea any time of the year.  However purpleangel, you neglected to specify how one might go about 'cleansing' your diet (or your digestive tract).  Could you elaborate?...

    You have to make your diet plan for summer wisely.Save the oranges and apples for fall, and load up on fresh berries, melons, greens, tomatoes, zucchini, cucumbers, beets, pea pods, and all the super-nutritious and low-calorie fruits, greens and vegetables.
