Forget the fact that we may be biologically built against losing weight during winter months — it turns out that our bodies are programmed to gain weight as the temperature drops. For many of us, however, once we flip that calendar to a new year, one concept is on the mind: a cleanse. On the Westside, there is no shortage of options offering ways to detox our bodies. Here are some of our top picks in various neighborhoods.
1. Brentwood & Santa Monica: Beaming.
For newbies to the cleansing concept, Beaming can be a great starter option with its Lifestyle cleanse. It offers a mix of juices, smoothies and meals loaded with super foods to help reset the body.
2. Santa Monica, Beverly Hills & Venice: Kreation
All pressed and organic juices (sourced from produce from the Santa Monica Farmers Market) are the cornerstone at Kreation, where they offer a variety of cleanses, from the beginner-level Reboot option to the more hardcore Premium Detox. All of them are designed to cleanse, heal and nourish.
3. West L.A & Santa Monica: Paleta
Le Cordon Bleu-trained chef and cancer survivor Kelly Boyer founded Paleta more than a decade ago and it’s grown into a mini-empire based on home delivery of delicious farm-to-table food. Her Mind/Body cleanse offers juices, shakes, snacks and actual meals sourced from local farmers. Delivery available at paleta.com
