Tag Archives: An apple a day… & Super Energy Elixir- Karlene Karst

An apple a day…
An apple a day keeps the belly fat away.Red, green, tart, sweet, juicy, delicious, full of fiber, vitamins and minerals; apples are on my daily snack list. They also contain pectin, which is thought to restrict cells from absorbing fat. Pectin also encourages water absorption from food, which helps break up fat deposits. Try yours sliced with almond butter, or a piece of cheddar or brie cheese.

Super Energy Elixir

In your blender or Vitamix, add:
4 cups of organic, tightly packed spinach
2 bananas
