"Reinventing Indulgence" One meal at a time!

A friend of mine posted this on my Facebook page the other day- it was part of her initial detox cleansing leading into a full juice fast. I love this recipe because it pulls together the benefits of green tea, celery and a banana.


Green tea is widely popular and filled with many health benefits:

  • Antioxidants (catechins)
  • Weight loss possibilities
  • May reduce pain of rheumatoid arthritis
  • Stabilizes cholesterol levels
  • Improves immune system
  • Reduced risk of heart disease
  • Promising studies for fighting cancer cells
Celery, as a I mentioned in yesterday’s blog is loaded with nutrients and is incredibly helpful for detox and elimination. Banana’s are a food I eat almost everyday and most certainly include in most of my proteins shakes. 

Recipe

Green tea- prepare 2 cups and let cool
Celery- a few stalks with the heads on

Banana- one
