Loving the BITE: Green Detox Super Smoothie

This week, even with Thanksgiving, you can feel healthy and fit instead of stuffed and lethargic.  Start the day with a Green Detox Super Smoothie and follow it up with a nice autumn ride.

Fuel Your Ride.  Nourish Your Body.

    Could I add oranges instead of grapefruit? My husband can’t eat grapefruit with his anti-rejection meds.  Or should I just leave the grapefruit out?

      Hello – you can absolutely substitute an orange for the grapefruit.  They both have wonderful nutrients that will contribute to the antioxidants, anti-inflammation, and detox qualities of this recipe.  Enjoy! Kelli, RD

    Nutrition is clearly the one discipline holding me back from taking my racing efforts to the next level, but this just sounds nasty.  Think I’ll look through the archives to find another smoothie to warm up to first.

      Hi Christopher – I hope you found what you were looking for!  While certainly not jamba juice, most of my clients accustomed to green smoothies have liked this recipe.  But, of course, it’s important to find one that works for you. To get started with green smoothies, you can take regular smoothie recipes that you like, cut back on any added sugar and add ~1 cup kale or spinach (the spinach is usually so mild that you won’t notice it).  And, there’s plenty of other ways to get in great nutrition for daily wellness and training goals, so no worries if the smoothies aren’t for you.  All the best!

    I had my wife pick up the supplies earlier today and am going to see how this thing performs for me tomorrow.  I don’t plan on eating too much but it always seems to happen.

    What exactly are Hemp seeds?

    Happy Thanksgiving and thanks for this recipe.  I find thta it takes me a while to get my stomach feeling good after eating too much so I hope this helps.
