Start clean with a detox

4 Feb

A lot of us have heard of detox and detoxing. But why? How? Think about all the  junk foods we eat and the harmful things that we come in physical contact with on a daily basis. Your body is not a garbage can, so it is absolutely important for you to detox once in a while to give your body the proper ‘rinse’ it deserves. Detoxing can lead to better skin, balanced energy, better night’s sleep, improved sex drive, weight loss and so much more.

In my opinion, the easiest way to detox is in a smoothie form. You take all the ingredients you need, put it in a blender, give it a whirl, then you’re good to go! Better yet, if they actually taste good! This is one of my favorite recipe for a kale, pineapple & ginger detox smoothie inspired by Dr. Oz.

What you’ll need (Makes 4 servings, so you can drink it all day long or share it with the family):

  • 1/2 pineapple chopped
  • 1 bunch of kale (remove stems)
  • 1/2 lemon freshly squeezed (you can add the zest in too if you like the texture)
  • 1 small knob of ginger (sliced or shaved)
  • 1 cup of ice
  • Extra: throw in a few mint leaves for a refreshing kick!
