F007A57E-B50A-443C-B1E0-9FC11DD194B7When you were growing up , it was a sinful treat to get a smoothie on a hot summer day . Who would have thought , smoothies are now the best way to stay healthy and loose weight !!

There are so many types of smoothies you can  make and choose, if you stop by a smoothie bar.  There are fruit smoothies , fruit and veggie smoothies , meal replacement smoothies and protein smoothies.

You do have to watch your smoothie intake if you are counting calories. Meal replacement and protein smoothies can pack in a lot of calories , when you get them from a smoothie bar.

Smoothies help with body cleansing , detox  and loosing weight.

Here is my 10 Day Smoothie experience

I detox 24-48 hours before I start my smoothie challenge. I drink 2 jugs of water infused with slices of cucumber , lemon ,lime , mint leaves , grapefruit , and a light meal . Most important, I take vitamins the whole time. You don’t want to loose any nutrients the body needs. This avoids being nauseous and fatigued.
