On the 11th Day of Giving I give you the gift of cleansing!
Treats, sugar and alcohol are common indulgences during the holiday season. To keep your body in balance start your morning off with this Green Detox Shake recipe, courtesy of my daughter and her new favourite website The Chalkboard. This shake helps keep pH neutral, you want to do this because an overly acidic body invites disease.
3 celery stalks or 1 whole cucumber
4 cups spinach
Juice of 2 ruby red grapefruit or 4 limes
1 tbsp nut butter (or flesh of a coconut)
1/2 cup whole strawberries
1 scoop Powder Greens - I use SunWarrior Greens (you can purchase them at rawelements.ca, and use the discount code "Tosca" for an additional 20% off)
Water and ice if necessary
*small piece of ginger for zing and warmth
*sub strawberries for pineapple
If you are interested in maximizing your detox, as soon as you wake drink 1 cup warm water and lemon, skip the coffee and opt for green tea. Eat as clean as possible throughout the day!
