RK_KIWI_DETOX

Keep your weekday healthy eating vibe alive this weekend with this tangy detoxifying smoothie featuring kiwi, kale and cilantro. Kiwis pack quite the nutritional punch for being so small. Weight for weight they have more fiber than an apple and almost twice as much vitamin c than an orange. They are rich in antioxidants and phytonutrients which protect your body against free radicals that cause havoc to cells in the body. I could go on about kiwis, let’s talk about kale. Kale is King! I can’t get enough of this dark leafy green. It’s an anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer superfood filled with vitamins, minerals, nutrients and it pumps up the body’s natural detoxification process. Speaking of detoxification- did you know that cilantro aids in the removal of heavy metals and other toxins from the body? Yep, this little herb is an amazing detoxifier and anti-inflammatory superherb.
