CHRISTMAS IN DETROIT + EATORI MARKET & OTTAVA VIA.

Finally made it downtown to check out the Christmas Market. We've been so lucky with this mild weather, walking around and exploring was the perfect way to spend the evening.

EVERYDAY GREEN SMOOTHIE.


I've followed nutritionist Kimberly Synder for a long time (check out her books, they're amazing!), and a big part of her philosophy has to do with starting every day with a large green smoothie to help your body "continuously cleanse". I've tweaked her classic Glowing Green Smoothie to suit my tastebuds, and I make it my goal to have about 30 oz of some variation of this smoothie every morning.

A time saving tip is to making a big batch in advance, and portion it out for a few days. This smoothie will last about 3 days in the refrigerator. I store mine in Ball jars to try and avoid as much oxidation as possible.

Feel free to mix up the fresh herbs and fruit! Fresh mint is great in smoothies, or try swapping mango for the pineapple. The idea is that ratio should stay 70% greens, 30% fruit, but by all means, get creative!

Come on in for the recipe!
