Hi Guys! So today is my first completed week of my detox diet! (If you're new to my blog, your can read more about it here) I've completed 25% of the program and I'm so proud! Although I can't say I feel top notch, not yet anyway. I have a pretty bad headache and my energy is low. I'm hoping it's because of the detox process that's happening and hopefully, I'm going to feel much better in just a couple of days. I'll keep you posted!

Yesterday, I made this delicious smoothie for breakfast (+2 hard boiled eggs). It's a heatwave in L.A. at the moment and I'm craving more of a liquid diet. Smoothies are a great way to incorporate nutritious veggies & vitamins with not much effort! Here is one of my favorites, a refreshing mint & avocado green smoothie.

If you don't have any frozen pineapple or banana, just add some ice. I didn't list how much of each ingredient because it all depends on how many servings you're making. Also, the taste is a personal preferance. I personally like to add more of the banana and just a tiny bit of ginger it doesn't overwhelm the overall taste.

The mint adds a very fresh and summery flavor!
