Day 3 of the 10-Day Green Smoothie Cleanse by JJ Smith is over and I have to say, the word I think of is clarity. One of the things I really like about this jump start is that it provides an energy boost. The food that makes you sluggish and keeps you lazy is eliminated in order to allow you to feed your body with fruits and vegetables, and healthy fats and proteins. Plus I’m not “hangry” (hungry and angry) The first few days I was craving the burger I had at Umami Burger in NYC over the weekend.

But by the middle of day 3, I was wanting more fruits and vegetables, like this kale salad.

Day 2 Smoothie was a blend of spring mix, banana, apple, strawberries and flax meal.

Day 3 Smoothie was a blend of spring mix, spinach, blueberries, apple, and flax meal. I am more alert all day at work already, and I focus a lot on my water intake throughout the day with the smoothies. I can’t wait to continue this and start sharing the healthy recipes that I will be making.
