Well, I was on a detox diet, all week and a day for the Navratri ,October 2015. And smoothies were a major part of my daily calorie intake.
Since I was on a holiday,visiting with the parents and the in -laws, food couldn't be too complicated. But I was not ready to allow the pimples and acne and rash like breakouts on my face because of eating unhealthy food.
The easiest way out was smoothies.
Two varieties on day eight.
No fixed amounts. Just a cup of each ingredient,or whatever suits your taste buds at the moment.
Green Magic Kiwi Spinach Coconut Smoothie
Ozonised kiwis-I don't bother peeling the kiwis when I make smoothies, and fresh spinach leaves.
Blended with fresh coconut water and a spoon full of honey to taste.
Two kiwis, a cup of fresh spinach leaves and some coconut water.
Vit C over load, fibre to keep you full for almost the whole day, antioxidants and all the goodness of healthy coconut water in two glasses.
My mum was not willing to try raw spinach, so she went traditional.
Pineapple Kiwi Yogurt Smoothie
A few slices of Tinned pineapple, one unpeeled kiwi(which you should peel if you intend sipping the smoothie over a period of about half an hour as kiwi peel causes the smoothie to become a little bitter) and a cup of yogurt.
Blend well till all the pineapple is puréed.
As the pineapple was tinned and had sugar we never added any honey.
Super yum and super healthy.
PS a note on nutrition
Spinach is an excellent source of vitamin K, vitamin A (in the form of carotenoids), manganese, folate, magnesium, iron, copper, vitamin B2, vitamin B6, vitamin E, calcium, potassium, and vitamin C. It is a very good source of dietary fiber, phosphorus, vitamin B1, zinc, protein, and choline.
Something to keep you Smiling At Forty and Counting.
