Coincidentally, I recently found out about a #DetoxYourLife campaign started by Oscar Health Insurance. They are a new health insurance company committed to providing their members with an easy, stress-free experience with their technology based resources. They currently offer health insurance plans in New Jersey and New York. If you are looking for an easy way to cleanse your body, try starting off with a delicious green smoothie!
Ingredients for Green Detox Smoothie:
2 cups packed greens (kale, chard, and/or spinach)
1 cup strawberries
1 cup red grapes
1/2 large banana, frozen
1 Tbs chia seeds
3/4 cup almond milk
Prepare the shake: Combine all the ingredients in a blender, and blend until smooth. Serve immediately.
Makes: one 24 fl oz serving
The great thing about smoothies is that the amount and types of ingredients can always be adjusted. I often just add whatever fruits I have in my refrigerator at the time. I particularly like to add a few figs to my smoothie, which really helps sweeten up the drink! When I am not in a rush, I also like to juice grapefruits and use it in place of almond milk.
Even though my wedding diet has ended, I still prefer to have a large glass of green smoothie for breakfast everyday! It actually fills me up, makes me feel healthier, and helps start off the day right. What are your favorite recipes for detoxing? Comment below and let me know!
