A Healthy Break from Holiday Feasting

Taking a break from all the rich and scrumptiously delicious foods. What am I having? 

A refreshingly healthy smoothie. 
Basically, you can throw anything you fancy into a smoothie, Especially a NutriBullet (it doesn't just juice, it EXTRACTS).

Here's what I'm using in my smoothie this morning.

Pineapple - the only edible bromeliad available today. Good for digestion because it breaks down proteins, eases sinuses or arthritis, good for strong bones and connective tissue. It's an effective anti-inflammatory; it discourages formation of blood clots; and is good for morning sickness.
Banana - a banana a day keeps the doctor away. Not an apple . . . a banana. It has more vitamins and nutrients than an apple, provides energy, regulates mood, relieves cramping, restores blood sugar, and soothe's ulcers. You 

can even rub the peel on a mosquito bite to reduce itching and swelling.

Mango - prevents cancer, lowers cholesterol, clears the skin, promotes healthy eyesight, improves sex, digestion, boosts immune system, and alkalizes the whole body.The leaves normalize insulin levels. 
Berries - are loaded with fiber, a powerful antioxidant.
Watermelon - another powerful antioxidant, cancer fighter, and fat burner.
Spinach - high in fiber, cancer fighter, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, lowers blood pressure, protects the eyes; good for skin, bones, brain, and nervous system.
Beets - source of energy; high in fiber and minerals; great source of folic acid; protects against cancer and heart disease; cleanses the blood and colon; strengthens the gallbladder and liver.
Cacao nibs - a powerful antioxidant; raises seratonin and endorphin levels, elevates mood and acts as an antidepressant, increases focus and alertness, promotes relaxation and feeling of well-being; rich in minerals and essential fats.

Flax Seed - high in fiber, Omega 3 Fatty Acids, and does a ton of stuff for the female like balancing hormones and promoting fertility.

Great ingredients, great look, great taste, and great benefits. 
Go ahead. 
Enjoy one today.
All benefits aside, this wonderful drink chases away all guilt and self-condemnation that may come with the   indulgence in holiday gorging.
