I see you made your way to this delicious and nutritious green smoothie recipe. This drink will slap you right back on track when you've had a not so perfect eating day. The combination of the ginger and cilantro will calm the digestive track, heal inflammation in the body, and aid in elimination. It's such a simple recipe to make. Make sure to grab these ingredients before Thanksgiving so they are ready to go the next morning.
1 green apple
1/4 cup cilantro (no stems)
1 handful of dark leafy greens (my fav is baby kale)
2 1" inch chunks of young ginger (skin and all)
1 stalk celery
juice of 1 lemon
1 cup water or coconut water
After a few hours, follow up this smoothie with a high protein, high fat meal like an egg and veggie omelet with avocado or my pumpkin smoothie recipe.
Blend all together and enjoy!
