Thought it would be nice to share a budget smoothie recipe.
Spring clean your liver with a alkalizing green smoothie.
With a gentle liver cleanse. Start each day with a smoothie with various greens added.
Spinach contains oxalic acid so it’s advisable to rotate your green vegetables. Kale, pak choi, cabbage, lettuce, beetroot leaves, broccoli leaves etc Use your imagination and just check it’s edible with delightful google!
