Getting a Little Green

It is day 3 for our Ethos Community Cleansers. Let's give a little hand clap for that! Typically when we start to cleanse our cells release toxins into the body faster than we can eliminate them which can make us feel overloaded, slow and sluggish... especially on day 3 or 4. But these are actually good signs that our body is doing what it is designed to do and is letting go of the things that we no longer need. In honor of deep cleansing and releasing, here are three nutritious green smoothie recipes via greenblender.com that will really give your day a get-up-and-go!

(Place all the ingredients for each recipe into a blender and enjoy!)
