Start the New Year Off with a Taco Cleanse: The Diet That You’ll Actually Be Able to Stick With
Taco Cleanse Cookbook
Forget all of that painful (and expensive) juicing and stop trying to convert your fridge to paleo: This is a diet cleanse anyone can get on board with. Introducing The Taco Cleanse, a tongue-in-cheek cookbook that slyly pokes fun at our obsession with fad health trends. Hey, we already know that a pizza diet is possible, so why not a taco diet?
The Taco Cleanse is the “Tortilla Based Diet Proven to Change Your Life,” and you can get the book of the same name on Amazon or at Barnes & Noble. Before you rub your hands together in anticipation of carnitas ecstasy, there’s one catch: The Taco Cleanse is a vegan diet. The cookbook comes with 75 taco recipes and a whole lot of guac. You’ll also find recipes for Mexican mashed potatoes, sweet potato tacos, tempeh picadillo, and breakfast tacos sans eggs.
The diet is based on a diet experiment started by "food scientists" and cookbook authors Wes Allison, Stephanie Bogdanich, Molly R. Frisinger, and Jessica Morris, during which they attempted to eat nothing but tacos for three meals a day. The experiment was apparently a success, but be forewarned: The book does not actually promise to help you lose weight, but simply offers “long-lasting health benefits.”
The Taco Cleanse has only been out for a month, and it’s already out of stock on Amazon, so you know that’s a good sign.
