Chlorella Smoothie + Zucchini Noodles Detox
Your body is your temple and you are the sole ruler of it. In order to keep your body fully functional and energized, you have to take control of what you put in your body. Everyday, we intake tons of unhealthy substances and toxins, from the food we eat, to the water we drink. Of course there is no way to completely avoid and rid your body of these toxins but you can help give your body a boost by giving it a detox. Detoxing is a great way to aid your body in getting rid of as much toxins as possible, while improving its function and performance. If you want to start feeling and looking your best (because you deserve it!), here are two delicious and nutritious recipes to help you detox and give your body the cleansing boost its been longing for.
Smoothies are the perfect detox choice, especially if you need your nutrients on-the-go. They are super ideal for if you’re running late in the morning and don’t can’t make breakfast or if you don’t want to eat a full-course meal for dinner. They carry a lot of essential and vital nutrients that create the perfect detox to remove those unhealthy toxins from your body. This fruity chlorella smoothie recipe is super quick and filled with proteins and antioxidants. You can put your own little twist and add your own favorite fruits but just make sure you have those necessary nutrients for a complete detox. Just throw all in a high-powered blender, blend until it has a smooth consistency and then enjoy!

½ cup frozen blueberries
