Last week we went to South Carolina and visited Charleston and Folly Beach. We needed a few days to get away just the two of us, for some rest and relaxation! We did just that, including eating our way through both towns. By the end of the week we realized that vegetables took a vacation from our lives as well...oops. This week my body has been craving all things good for me after eating heavier meals while on vacation. I always feel like a detox is in order after vacation. You don't eat enough veggies, drink enough water, or exercise as much as you should even if you went with good intentions. My kale and cantaloupe smoothie is just the drink to help feed my body the nutrients that it missed out on last week! It's hydrating, full of vitamins, and really delicious!
Smoothies are a great way to sneak good for you ingredients into one yummy drink. You won't even realize you are drinking something that is really benefiting your body because you will love how it tastes. The key is to balance sweet fruit with your veggies and to make sure you aren't adding unnecessary sugar outside of your fruit!
