Blueberry Avocado Detox Smoothie

It’s that time of year again! Spring cleaning! For some of us that means cleaning out our cabinets, closets, garages, pantry, storage, backyards, etc. and for others it may mean cleaning out their bodies inside and out. I like to do both during this time of year ‘cuz it just feels so good! So time for spring cleaning and “spring cleansing”.

I didn’t understand what it meant to “detox” until later in life…probably around my late 20’s. I remember doing a colon cleanse once and felt so good after. It’s great to rejuvenate, recharge, and renew your body. It’s like cleaning out the pipes and tubes in your body to help them function better. Think of how “Drain-O” works to clear out the pipes in your home…well, just like Drain-O, we need to also clear out the toxins in our bodies that we may not be aware of how they are “clogging” our system.

So here are some health benefits to doing a detox (taken from online resources):

  1. Fight your junk addiction
  2. Clear out your toxins
  3. Balance your hormones
  4. Increase energy
  5. Increase circulation
  6. Improve digestion
  7. Strengthen immune system
  8. Lower risk of cancer
  9. Improve concentration
  10. Improve sleep quality
  11. Clearer skin
  12. Regular bowel movements
  13. Cleanse liver
  14. Detoxify organs
  15. Reduce Stress
  16. Increase sex drive (bet you didn’t see that one comin’!)

So here’s to “spring cleaning”! Recipe is on the picture. Just put all in blender and pour in cup to enjoy…and be HAPPY! =D
