Green Detox Smoothie

Raw greens are known to help cleanse the body and help alkalize it : Two things needed for weight loss and optimal health. I saw this particular green detox smoothie  in the Nov 25 2013  issue of Woman' sWorld Magazine.  It was a great article about how to do a Smoothie Diet and take off 5 pounds in 3 days.

They had a green detox smoothie, a red detox smoothie, a detox soup for dinner, and an almond milk smoothie for a snack. I did it for 3 days, lost 4 and half pounds, and wasn't hungry.

I like the green detox so much that I plan to do it the day after Thanksgiving to rebalance and energize my system after the heavy Thanksgiving overindulgence. It's a great way to get rid of the bloat and re-energize.
