Clean on the inside.

With the help of the Raw Fairies in London, England I plan to be .1% of the population who will not eat beyond their means during the holiday season. This way I can hopefully fit into some fabulous odd-sized Boxing Day sale rack find. A Size 2 has a way of making you regret inhaling that gingerbread house, those egg nog shooters, a stuffing sandwich with gravy, the Christmas tree along with all of the ornaments and yellow snow.

When in London, the Raw Fairies are my go-to-food source. I love their food because it tastes delicious AND is truly good for you. As opposed to some raw restaurants that give the movement a bad rap and can often leave a mleh aftertaste in your mouth and your teeth on the dining table.

The following is a recipe courtesy of the Raw Fairies. You'll feel fantastic after drinking this suitably festive colored drink.

Green Smoothie with Spirulina and Chlorella:

For eight 250 ml smoothies:

1250 ml filtered (or mineral) water

7 medium organic bananas

4 organic kiwis, peeled and cut into pieces

2 large handfuls of fresh organic spinach

1 tablespoon organic spirulina

1 tablespoon organic chlorella

Blend all ingredients in a Vita Mix or other high speed blender until totally smooth.
