Anyone over-indulge recently?

When did the holidays became synonymous with overeating? I

'm not sure we can blame the pilgrims.

Instead of choosing not to eat until summer, how about we start with a detox smoothie to help digest where we are and make some positive steps forward.

Sure there's easy go-to's like kale and spinach to put into a green smoothie, but why not try something different like dandelion greens.

Dandelion greens have a higher amount of calcium and iron than most other greens. On top of that they’re loaded with fiber, vitamins, antioxidants and is said to be a good cancer fighter.

Then there's that detoxing effect that we're after. These greens have been used as a liver tonic and diuretic for years, and adding in fresh cilantro only doubles the detoxification properties.

Dandelion greens can be a little bitter, so I've thrown in some green apples for a little sweetness and another detox bonus since apples have pectin, a soluble fiber to help you remove unwanted waste.

Ginger is an anti-inflammatory addition and great for digestion.

Cucumber and celery increase the vitamin C and can help with unnecessary water retention. The avocado is there to boost the protein level and make you feel a bit more full after drinking it. You don’t want to need another breakfast after drinking this healthy detox smoothie.
