Kale is a superfood, rich in omegas, fatty acids and antioxidants which will cleanse your intestines and liver of toxins. There are different varieties of the veggie, and you could use any of them. We particularly like lacinato because the taste is much lighter than other kales. So, grab these ingredients and blend those stored calories away.
Instructions: Blend all the ingredients and that’s it! Enjoy this delicious high-protein, low-fat smoothie for lunch or dinner. Add a little salt, pepper, and squeeze half a lemon for extra flavor. You’re going to love the taste and benefits of this weight loss friendly liquid meal.
Note: If you don’t like your smoothie thick, you could strain it before drinking it, but know that you could be losing some of the nutrients.
