I FEEL GREAT TODAY! Unfortunately that feeling has been pretty rare for me lately. I think it had a lot to do with the fresh smoothie I made this morning. I based it on the Glowing Green Smoothie from Kimberly Snyder’s book, “The Beauty Detox Foods.” I made it with my VitaMix blender (the best in the biz). It was quick and easy. Here’s what I blended up:
- 1 glass of purified water (roughly 10-12 oz)
- 2 large handfuls of organic romaine lettuce
- 2 large handfuls of organic spinach
- 2 bananas
- 2 apples
- 4 stalks of celery
- Juice from 1/2 lemon
- 1 teaspoon spirulina powder
- 1 tablespoon manuka honey
- 1 scoop Raw Fit protein powder
- 1 oz Lily of the Desert Aloe Vera Detox Formula
- 1 bottle youthH2O
You don’t have to add all the extras – just start with the fruits and veggies and see how great you feel! This blend will help acne, aging skin, hair, nails, and overall energy and health! One large pitcher should last about 2 1/2 – 3 days in the fridge, so you can get your fruits and vegetables in every morning! (FYI – none of these products were sent for review. I picked most of them up at Erewhon Natural Foods and Vitamin Shoppe in Los Angeles.)
