Sometimes, I get to the point where I’m so groggy and weighed down that I can barely get out of bed. When this starts happening, I know I need to detox and alkalize my body.
When your body is acidic, those acids build up in your system causing you to feel crummy. Drinking coffee to perk up doesn’t actually help. It’s just more acid!
Instead, alkalize your body with these simple smoothie “shots.” Here’s how to make them.
The leafy shot.
This is perfect for mornings. Blend 2 cups of organic spinach, 1/4 cup of organic blueberries, and a small slice of ginger together. You’ll need to add some water. It’s up to you how much. This smoothie is high in vitamins C and B as well as potassium. You can boost the protein factor with hemp seeds if you like.
The fat blaster shot.
Blend a quarter cup of lemon juice, a pinch of cayenne pepper, and a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar together. You may want to cut this one with water as it will be somewhat strong. This one helps boost your metabolism and kick the fat. This is also a great way to start your morning. Slowly drink a large glass of water after consuming.
The gut flusher shot.
Don’t worry, it’s not as intense as I make it sound. Blend a couple small slices of ginger, a half cup of lemon juice, and a half cup of apple cider vinegar together. This helps your digestive system run smoothly and avoids bloating, constipation, and other issues.
