I get asked all the time, “how do you get your glowing skin?”, and my response is always, eat your greens. In this case, drink your greens.
Greens are uplifting to the spirit and high in antioxidants called phytonutrients. Those antioxidants fight free radicals that can cause aging, and eating or drinking a variety of greens each day ensures that you’re getting a variety to nourish your body.
This week I was inspired by a big bag of ORGANIC grapefruits and some reading I’d done about grapefruit and it’s cleansing properties. Grapefruit’s been indicated as beneficial for weight loss, cleansing, detoxification, and boosting your energy.
This smoothie is a double whammy of goodness. And I love the way it tastes.
Here you go.
1 head romaine lettuce
1 large cucumber
4 leaves kale
1 whole grapefruit, peeled
16-20 oz. pure water
Blend in your high speed blender.
Simplicity rules with this one!!
You could add the following:
- banana for sweetness, and celery or parsley would be nice too.
Get the GLOW baby!!
