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.

Insteada Here's a recipe that's popular with the agency kids, like Teres who can't get enough of it! I don't blame her, it's delicious and a real pick me up first thing in the morning. I recommend having it cold, but using warm/hot water works too. It's packed with amazing nutrient dense, high energy super foods so probably not the best snack before bed. Insteada' Coffee Serves 2 1 cup of filtered water 1 tbsp chia seeds 2 tbsp raw cacao powder 3 tbsp coconut sugar 1 tsp maca 1/2 tsp cinnamon dash cayenne dash Himalayan pink salt 4-6 cubes of ice OR 1 cup hot water Place all ingredients in blender and blend on high until smooth. Add ice OR hot water, blend to desired consistency. Allowing the chia seeds to soak for 15 minutes before blending will provide a silky smoothie texture.
