A cross between a mandarin orange and a lemon. Meyer lemons were originally used for purely aesthetic purposes before their benefits were discovered.
Sweet and not tart like regular lemons. Meyer lemons have such a thin layer of white pith between their skin. And fruit that they can actually be eaten the skin and all. Chlorella is a type of algae that grows in freshwater. And is often used as a natural treatment for digestive issues and fibromyalgia.

2 Persian cucumbers – chopped
1 apple – chopped

Ginger is a fantastic anti-inflammatory. And collard greens contain a big dose of vitamin A, C and even a little bit of protein.
If traditional detox drinks prove too harsh for your stomach. This gentler version should give you all the nutritional benefits without the intense stomach side effects 🙂 🙂
