Drinking green tea is one of the best sources of anti-oxidants! It will also help you loose weight, skincare and lower your cholesterol among many other benefits.
Curcumin (turmeric) may stop the action of a liver enzyme that activates environmental toxins into carcinogenic forms, and may be especially useful in deactivating the carcinogens in cigarette smoke and chewing tobacco. Turmeric in the diet increases the production of enzymes that digest fats and sugars, and stop cholesterol from forming gallstones. Turmeric prevents the release of histamine in the stomach, quelling nervous stomach and counteracting food allergies and it fights gum inflammation by halting the action of a gene that creates irritant chemicals. Without the irritation, bacteria cannot find a place to grow, and the absence of bacteria reduces both bad breath and gingivitis.

I had the opportunity of serving this Smoothie on our last presentation at Macy's Dadeland Mall as part of their event "Breakfast at Macy's" (a remake of the movie "Breakfast at Tiffany's). Everyone was fascinated with its flavor but most importantly, with the fact that adding Spinach and Avocado to a breakfast smoothie can improve the lasting feel of being nourished and energized throughout the morning. This is a simple recipe to make and it takes away the decision making of what to have for breakfast when you are in a hurry. Throw everything into the blender and go! You'll be satisfied for hours!!!
