At the end of October, my husband and I decided to do a 21 day cleanse.  We didn’t follow any mainstream cleanses in which they try to sell product (I am not a fan), but we basically followed the principles set by Dr. Alejandro Junger and his Clean Gut Cleanse & his blog for a bunch of recipes.  Basics of it, were a protein smoothie for breakfast, lunch was main meal of veggies, protein and clean fat and then dinner was an entree salad + plus no eating from dinner until breakfast.  My husband and I loved it, and now we crave our morning smoothies instead of a heavier breakfast.  I thought I would share  my favorite smoothie combination that I would pick over any others.

BlueberrySmoothie1
Key ingredients:

Fiber: Flax seed and Chia Seeds

Vitamins, minerals and protein: pumpkin seeds, roasted cocoa nibs, brazil nuts, spinach, unsweetened almond milk and organic chocolate protein powder

Sweetener: blueberries

Because of all the fiber and protein, this smoothie is incredibly filling and satisfying.
