Dear Juicy Heart & Sleepy Head,
Does you regular macchiato no longer wake you from the dead?
Are you tired of swimming, and sometimes drowning in your daily cup(s) of Joe?
Could your adrenals be mad at you for constantly overworking them with incredible amounts of caffeine?
Could your liver secretly be asking you for a well-deserved detox break? If the white of your eye has a yellow glow, that’s Mr. Liver calling. (And you better answer.)
If so, lean closer, I’ve got the greenest secret.
And I promise you, it is not as creepy as it looks.
This quick detox, Spirulina Machiatto will clean your insides, hydrate your heart and clear your mind, after a high of morning energy. But it won’t feel like the energy you get from coffee.
It’s a gentler, soothing, subtler, longer-lasting and more grounded energy. Like something you’d expect from a mother… called Earth.
Don’t worry, you don’t have to quit coffee, but you can alternate it with energetic and detoxifying green sips here and there. The point is not subtracting, but adding more goodness to your diet.
Les Ingredients (serves two—in wine glasses):
Organic is always preferable. When not organic, peel what can be peeled.
- 2 sticks of celery (with leaves, if possible)
- 2 medium cucumbers
- 2 green apples
- 1-2 limes
- a bite of ginger (as much as it fits in your mouth)
- 1 teaspoon of the greenest spirulina powder you can find in the underworld
In short: hyper-hydration and VIP alkalizing from the cucumber, apple and celery; detox superpowers plus a multi-mineral and vitamin high from the celery and spirulina; circulation & nutrient absorption improved by the ginger; liver love and antioxidants from the apple; huge protein boost from the spirulina.
And this is just a summarized summary.
Juice it up and serve in a wine glass.
Optional: say a quick prayer to your secret god.
