Last time, I shared the 7 foods you probably think are healthy that in truth, are not doing your body any favors. But just because you should avoid foods like wheat bread and peanut butter does not mean you can’t enjoy nutritious alternatives.
Recipes like this one are the perfect antidote. They’ve got plenty of chlorophyll from the celery, cucumber, basil, and herbs, plus healthy fat from avocado to unstick the acid in the fat cells that have plagued you for so long.
And I can’t neglect to tell you, it’s delicious too! This makes a perfect dinner for hot summer nights when you don’t want to stand over a stove.
Give it a try and let me know what you think over on Facebook.
