CACAO SMOOTHIE BOWL

Chocolate for breakfast?  You bet. Packed with amazing anti-oxidants, loads of omega-3 fatty acids and plenty of fiber, this is a delicious way to start your day without the guilt.  I include smoothie bowls into my diet when the weather warms up.  It’s a great way to get a variety of important daily nutrients in one easy to assemble meal.  It travels well too!  (Get yourself a great thermos and you are all set!) Spring is coming and eating fresh fruits and vegetables naturally cleanses the digestive system and wakes up the detoxification effects of the liver. Don't forget the greens!!!

Want to eat like this all the time?  Join the LK5 Spring Cleanse.  We start March 30th this year and for 10 days we eliminate inflammatory foods, increase our alkalizing menu and finally end with a few days to come back down.  You are given 40+ pages of tried and true cleansing recipes that you will continue using throughout the season!  Check the details HERE.
