Morning Detox Smoothie

Breaking your fast in the morning (aka. "break-fast") with the proper foods is incredibly important. The last thing your body wants in the morning is a heavy protein and fat-infused meal such as the typical bacon and eggs. This will reverse all the hard work your body slaved away at over night to help repair and regenerate tissues from the previous days work. Stuffing yourself with exorbitant amounts of food in the morning is incredibly taxing on the body, and will only leave you feel tired, grumpy and depressed.

Consuming fruit-rich meals in the morning is one of the best ways to start the day. It will leave you feeling clear, light, and 100% vibrant! This smoothie is a great way to kick-start the liver, gallbladder and kidneys to help flush toxins that accumulated as a by-product of tissue repair and regeneration that happened over night (when we sleep our bodies are busy improving the way we will function the next day - just another reason why sleep is so important). Jump-start your morning routine with this morning detox smoothie, after you have refreshed yourself with some water beforehand! (aim for 1 litre of water upon waking)

- 2 cups organic raspberries
- 1 cup mango, chopped
- 1 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
- 1 cup kale
- 3 inches ginger root
- 1 lemon, squeezed for juice
- 1 cup young thai coconut water

Put all of the ingredients into a blender and pulse blend for 30 seconds to best minimize oxidation. The blender I most recommend is the almighty Vitamix!
