A major improvement from the day 1 smoothie I made, the mango smoothie was good enough to eat on day 2 and 3. Inspired by the Whole Living detox mango, carrot and herb smoothie. Ingredients(makes 2 servings): 2 cups frozen mango chunks 2 large carrots, peeled and chopped 1 orange 1/2 cup fresh mint leaves 1 1/2 cups water Blend! Pour into a glass and enjoy. If you need a great detox approved snack for the mid-morning or afternoon, head for some fresh fruit and walnuts, like I did yesterday.
It’s detox day 3! So far, so good. I mad a mega headache for the first day and a half and was very tired and sluggish feeling. Today I am back to my normal energy levels and am headache free. I’ve been pleasantly surprised by how tasty and simple some of the recipes are. Like my lunch today of this avocado salad, which is a close rendition of the detox recipe. Ingredients: 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil juice of 1/2 lime 1 clove garlic, minced pinch of cayenne coarse salt 1 avocado, halved and seeded 1/2 red bell pepper thin slice of red onion, diced 6 cherry tomatoes, halved 1 tablespoon finely chopped cilantro In a small bowl, whisk together oil, lime juice, garlic, cayenne and coarse salt. Set aside. In a larger bowl, combine the bell pepper, onion, tomatoes and cilantro. Scoop meat out of avocado halves and chop.
