Now that everyone has [maybe? hopefully?] written down their resolutions for 2014 I’m assuming one or two of those resolutions may have to deal with healthy eating perhaps? Well, I know mine do.
I want to flood myself with fruits and veggies, and I want to be happy & have fun when doing it. I also want to allow myself to indulge every once in a while because I know I’ll make it up by making the next meal a healthy detoxing choice.
So, now I present to you some great smoothie/ juice options to set your body in balance and help you detox a bit when you have one of those indulgent days!
These 3 recipes are super easy if you have a blender, just add the ingredients in slowly. & I promise they all taste good too, I’ve been experimenting the past few days!

2 celery stalks, chopped
