Flat belly spinach smoothie (RECIPE)
Spinach is a natural weight loss food, a simple fact that has helped me see this green leaf with greater appreciation. Spinach offers twice as much fiber as any other green and it's a great source of potassium and vitamin C. And as if this wasn't enough, it's been linked to helping fight cancer and heart disease.

As always, use fresh ingredients. When making the perfect smoothie, start with the solids, move on to adding the liquids and don't forget to pulse as you blend to get the right creamy consistency before adding ice as your final step.
