Before you read the headline and freak out, fear not: We will not be telling you that you need to juice cleanse for five days. In this week of the January Challenge, we’re reclaiming the detox. This week is focused on eliminating anything in your life that isn’t serving you—because you deserve only the best in 2024. Kicking off the best year of your life means getting rid of those things that are holding you back or dragging you down (whether it’s food that makes you feel bad, social media accounts that clog your feed, or relationships or habits that are no longer serving you). Read on below for the second week of The Everygirl Podcast January Challenge, centered around detoxing and cleansing what isn’t serving your mind, body, and spirit.
Monday: Go grocery shopping for the week and load up on a variety of fiber-rich fruits and veggies

Fill your cart with fruits and vegetables this week—your body deserves it.
