Let’s Talk Detox

Diets that promise to rid our bodies of so-called toxins are popular, particularly at this time of year when many people are looking for a fresh start.

The other day, while contemplating a test kitchen bread box, he realized it also made a pretty good little beat box. Looking around, he realized the same held true for a number of other of kitchen tools and Sun Basket ingredients. With our test kitchen cooks as unknowing musicians, he snuck a few shots of chopping and cooking resulting in this yummy end-of-the-year music video.
