Super Duper Detox Green Smoothie


Today was the first day of my sugar detox for the next four weeks.  As far as day one’s go, it has been quite successful so far.

I got a great night’s rest last evening because I only just returned to the UK after spending two months in America and so jet lag aided in getting a good night’s rest.  I woke up this morning and took some before pictures so that I could track my physical progress with the sugar detox as well as how I feel.  Next I had my usual mug of green tea with a slice of frozen lemon to kick start my metabolism.  For breakfast I enjoyed a lush salad,

made with fresh organic greens and a couple boiled eggs which was all dressed with avocado oil, lemon, oregano, red chilli flakes, garlic powder, salt and pepper.  I spent most of the day unpacking and doing a bit of tidying around the house.  Then I enjoyed a light snack of celery and organic almond butter, followed by a boiled egg.  For lunch I opted for a smoothie and thus this concoction was born.  I’ve enjoyed a similar mix as a juice with apple, pear or kiwi and I really wanted to create something that would be similar without the added sugar or fruit and also could be filling enough as a meal replacement.  This is highly recommended for anyone who is used to eating high fibre diets, if it is your first go at a green smoothie the flavour may not be right for you.
