The greens are a super way to get lots of dark leafy greens, loaded with antioxidants, great for detoxification, great anti-inflammatory food, helping with the prevention of cancer and weight control. The almond in the smoothie adds a nice bit hit of protein, essential to a morning smoothie, and is also anti-inflammatory and helps balance blood sugar and assists with sustaining energy throughout the day. And the avocado, yet another good anti-inflammatory, is full of high quality oils, brilliant for your heart and brain.
