Happy Saint Patrick's Day!!

So... can ya guess what I'm going to encourage on such a holiday?

Not green beer...

Green smoothies!!!

Seriously, they are a wonderful way to kick start your day! Especially if you're planning a foam-filled evening of partying ;-)

Or maybe commit to one smoothie in the morning after your night out. The vitamins and minerals, as well as the high percentage of water may just help even things out! There's not really a "cure" for a hang-over, but you can take steps to rebalance your health after too much indulgence.

Treat your liver by getting organics. Since you're liver is already going to be busy detoxing the alcohol (yes, alcohol is considered a TOXIC component in your body!) so don't add to its job load with making it have to detoxify pesticides and chemicals. Maybe toss in some of those liver-promoting cruciferous veggies like kale, collard greens, or cabbage. Or snack on broccoli, cauliflower, or Brussle sprouts. Add sulfur-containing onions and garlic to a salad to help boost liver function.

Whatever you do, I hope you have a festive and fun day!
Sláinte! (Cheers!)
(Now THERE'S a green drink!) ;-)
