The Big Green Hump: Week 16

Let's detox, everyone, shall we? As you all know, I've ate like crap the past few days. It's been really bad. So I figured now would be a great time to try a detoxing smoothie. I found a recipe that was recently featured on ABC News. Apparently this particular smoothie is great for cleansing the liver [Pay attention MT!! I know you like to wreak havoc on your liver!!!], as well as draw heavy metals out of the body.

As usual, this smoothie is also loaded with vitamins, phytonutrients and fiber. So give it a whirl, and enjoy the health benefits of a good old fashioned detox!

"The Cure"
1 1/2 cup of cold water
1 head of romaine lettuce, coarsely chopped (may substitute any leafy green vegetable you have on hand)
3 large stalks of celery
2 apples, cored and chopped
1 banana
1/3 bunch of cilantro (may double the parsley if you don’t like cilantro)
1/3 bunch of parsley
Juice of 1/2 a fresh lemon

Blend it all together and drink up.  This smoothie is 3.5 WW points.
