BENEFITS OF GREEN SMOOTHIES
Our detox smoothie recipes are full of vitamins, antioxidants, fiber, and other healthful nutrients giving your body a detoxifying cleanse. They also contain large amounts of water, which helps to hydrate your body and boost metabolism.
I especially like that fact that you can get your daily dose of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients just in one cup of smoothie. People may not necessarily be open to trying a salad but are generally open to trying a cold cup of refreshing goodness.
Here are some benefits you’ll experience over the next 12 days:
Cleanse your body: Over time there is a buildup of harmful toxins i.e. preservatives, pesticides, heavy metals such as mercury and lead in the body through the consumption of the food we eat and exposure to pollution. This can affect our metabolism, behavior, immune system, and leads to disease. Our detox program is designed to stimulate the body to cleanse itself, helping the liver, kidneys and colon do what they naturally do which is getting rid of toxins and waste from the body.
Reduce the risk of serious diseases: It is well known that one way of preventing cancer and heart disease is to increase the number of fruit and vegetables in your diet. The more green smoothies you drink, the lower your risk.
Look Younger: The increased fluids and power of natural foods in your diet will hydrate your skin and reduce your wrinkles making you look younger.
Feel Energized: Fruits are a good source of energy, but eaten alone will only provide short bursts of energy (they contain lots of sugars, which are quickly metabolized). Because of their high content of veggies, green smoothies have balanced sugar content.
Weight Loss: Increasing the number of fruit and vegetables you eat in a day gives your body an opportunity to shed excess fat and water weight built up from toxins stored in the body. Our green smoothies are low in calories but very filling. Because they contain high amounts of water and fiber, they’ll make you feel as if you just ate a full meal. If you’re trying to lose weight and belly fat, our green smoothies contain a combination of fruits and vegetables that will help fight hunger, reduce cravings and bloating while helping the pounds melt off easier. Even though this is not a weightloss program, participants who completed this program and reported their weight loss have lost 7lbs to 10lbs in 12 days.
Crave less junk: When you increase the amount of healthy foods in your diet and decrease the unhealthy foods you will naturally stop craving junk food and crave more of the same healthy food. You will begin the lifestyle of eating healthier even after the Detox Program.
Detox Negativity and Negative Emotions: Rejuvenate your mind and spirit by detoxing negative emotions with daily inspirational devotional. Negative emotions include anger, unforgiveness (offense), stress/worry/anxiety/fear, jealousy, pride, addiction, disappointment/failure; judgement/condemnation; betrayal, rejection/abandonment, Harsh/cursewords/hate, etc. This devotional will be send to you daily via email.
Daniel Fast: This is one of the types of fasting based on how Daniel fasted in the bible. During the Daniel Fast, you do not eat meat, diary, sweets, fried food and bread. The only drink allowed is water. So you get to try a variety of specified fruits, nuts, grains and vegetables. The smoothie recipes provided in our 12 Day Power Detox Program can be used as a part of the Daniel Fast.
WHAT’S IN YOUR SMOOTHIE CUP?
Water: Water is essential for the proper functioning of the body and circulation of nutrients in the body. It aids digestion of food i.e. breaking down food so that your body can absorb the nutrients. Water flushes the liver tissues, aiding in removing toxins, and assists the kidneys during detoxing, so the liver can focus on its own cleansing.
Vegetables: They are a good source of many nutrients, including iron, potassium, fiber, folate (folic acid) and vitamins.
Fruits: Fruits are important sources of many nutrients, including potassium, fiber, vitamin C and folate (folic acid). Fruits compose of antioxidants which help the body fight diseases and cancers.
Plant based protein and healthy fats: Nuts are a good source of fiber, heart-healthy fats, and provide a wide range of essential nutrients, including protein, vitamins and minerals such as calcium, iron, zinc, potassium, magnesium, and antioxidants.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Why should I detox my Spirit, Soul and Body?
EVERYONE needs to detox. You breathe polluted air, you experience stress—both of which have physical byproducts in the body—and nobody’s diet is “perfect.” If you can answer this question honestly and your answer is a “Yes”, then you probably don’t need to do a detox. Are you willing to guarantee that you eat a healthy diet that is void of processed foods, genetically modified foods, caffeine, food coloring, refined sugars, alcohol or pesticides?
Think of your body as a vehicle requiring regular maintenance oil change. Routine oil and filter changes help remove particles and sludge and keep engines at peak condition. Buildup from dirty oil robs a vehicle’s fuel economy and power, and makes internal components work harder. An engine that works too hard will end up having more problems down the road as well as a shorter life span.
The organs of your body works like the engine of a vehicle. Regular maintenance and detox are necessary to keep your body in good health thereby prolonging your life.
As you may know man is a 3 part being with a spirit, soul and body. Your soul is the dimension of man which deals with the mental realm. It consists of his mind, will and emotions. It’s the part that reasons and thinks. The emotions are the responses (feelings) about the information which comes to us – from the physical world around us and from the spirit within us. We respond to emotions by crying, or feel like crying over news that we hear with our ears, but we can also cry when, from our spirit, we become aware of how much God loves us. The soul has not only the memory of things in your life which have happened but the way you felt about those things (your emotions).
The 12 Day Power Detox Devotional will guide to through the process of detoxing negative emotions you’ve experienced while embracing positive emotions. You would begin to feel happier, free to love and trust again.
I'm skeptical about adding green vegetables to my smoothies, what do you recommend?
For Green Smoothie Beginners, you can start off with spinach as the only greens in the smoothie for the first two days, and then add variety by the 3rd day. Start with 2 cups of spinach and add the other ingredients. After blending taste before you add more green vegetables

I'm worried about losing any more weight but I still want to try the Detox Program, what should I do?
Do the Modified Detox Program. Eat vegetarian salad or soup for lunch and smoothies for breakfast and dinner.
What should I do if I feel hungry during the Detox?
During this program, you shouldn’t be hungry if you follow the meal plans for Week 1 and 2. When you feel hungry, eat one serving of the recommended healthy snacks between smoothie meals. One serving of raw nuts is about a handful. One serving of carrots is 1 cup.
Make sure you are drinking 64 ounces of water daily and sipping your Detox Tea as well.
This program is too much of a challenge, I feel like quitting?
Before you throw in the towel, switch to the Modified Detox for as long as you can. The food cravings will always show up i.e. the temptations at work, home or at a get together. If you slip and ate something outside of what’s recommended on this Detox Program, the decision to continue depends on you. You can pick up the next day or choose to start over at another time. Your results will vary from participants who followed the meal plan and completed the Detox Program.
How long can I stay on the 12 Day Power Detox?
If you are going to keep drinking the smoothie recipes as part of your regular healthy diet, rotate your greens; try a variety of green vegetables in your smoothie. We recommend that you do not stay on the 12 Day Power Detox program longer than 2 weeks at a time.
You can plan to repeat it periodically i.e. every 3 months.
What should I do if I experience any of the following?
Headaches: Headaches are the one of the common side effect of detox programs. This usually happens within the first few days of the detox, especially for first timers. Sudden withdrawal from caffeine or sugar can have this effect, as can dehydration. I don’t recommend pain relief medications during the detox. The most effective treatment for headaches during a detox is still to drink plenty of water and get some rest.
Cravings or Hunger Pangs: You may experience hunger pangs the first few days of the detox but it will eventually stop after a few days as the body successfully acclimates. Over time, the green smoothies will help you eliminate cravings but you may have craving for different food items initially. Here are a few tips to overcome your cravings or hunger pangs: drink a bottle of water or detox tea; go for a walk or have a nap; eat a handful of nuts or your favorite vegetable; change the focus by doing your favorite activity or exercise.
Sometime during the Detox, I feel like chewing on something, so I would grab one serving of baby carrots and drink water. This really helps!
Constipation/Diarrhea: Participants who follow the recipes and instructions typically do not experience these symptoms but there could be exceptions. Green smoothies are high in fiber so digestion should improve. Once your body adjusts to the increase in healthy food and fiber, the symptoms will subside – usually within a couple days. Constipation may be due to the sudden increase of fiber in the diet. Check your water intake. If you haven’t had the specified amount i.e. 64 ounces, drink up. Also make sure you are following the measurements on the recipes.
The Salt Water Cleanse is also a good way to get rid of constipation if the other suggested methods fail. See the Important Notes Section.
Breakouts: Your skin is the largest detox organ and it helps your body release toxins through your pores in the form of sweat. If you experience breakouts, it’s probably because of the detox and it should clear up in a few days.
If any of the above symptoms persist beyond a week, then they may signal a necessary change that you need to make. Please stop the detox program and consult your doctor.
