Don’t forget doing this if you travel!
Did you know that travel can wear you down like work and exercise?
Whether you travel by train or plane or car, you are putting your body through long hours of sitting, carrying heavy luggage, standing while waiting or riding a full bus, not to mention crossing time zones and facing jet lag.
Your body needs a proper recovery system from all kinds of travel, whether you are gone for 3 days or 3 weeks.
I use this effective system to recover from jet lag the natural way. I am also very gentle and patient with my body’s demands for up to a week after getting home. This helps the body adjust to the right time zone and slowly shift into the old routines.
Nutrition matters and green smoothies can play a huge role.
But did you know that one of the biggest factors in healing from travel mayhem and recovering fully is nutrition?
You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to admit the importance of eating well and fueling your body the right way if you care at all about your health and well-being, not to mention your mental state and your overall happiness.
Yep they are all related, the food you put into your body and your happiness hormones! Who knew?
I’m home after a 5-week trip to Europe (follow my adventures on Instagram), and while it was magical and memorable for years to come, I am glad to be back in my kitchen where I can make green juice and green smoothies daily again without paying a fortune for them!
Since The Healthy Smoothie Bible hit the bookstores, I’ve been asked for easy green smoothie recipes that can help a detox and cleansing especially after taking a trip so I put together a list of 7 easy hydrating cleansing green smoothie recipes that you can make every day for the first week of getting home.
Indulge Away but Recover ASAP Post Travel
If you are anything like say normal, you enjoy food where you go, you may go out to eat with friends or coworkers or taste the new cuisine of the country or region you are visiting.
Most of us tend to overindulge when traveling. I admit that’s what I did all over Europe. Have you had Germany bakery? Or French breads? It’s sinful to give it up in the name of diet! 🙂
But what matters most is what you do the first three days after you are back home.
This is the detox plan I follow when I get home from traveling any length of time, and I immediately regain my health and energy and feel productive.
What you need for this recovery plan: A copy of The Healthy Smoothie Bible. If you don’t have one already, you can grab it on Amazon or a local bookstore such as Barnes & Noble. Best price and availability is generally at Amazon.
Easy Cleansing Rules with Green Smoothies:
Follow these steps during your cleanse & hydrate:
1. Make one of the green detox smoothie recipes in The Healthy Smoothie Bible. These recipes are marked by “Cleanse & Detox” category. They should yield approximately 2-3 servings.

2. Drink one serving for breakfast.
3. Save the rest in an air-tight glass container and refrigerate.
4. Drink water and loose-leaf tea all morning and afternoon.
5. Drink a second serving mid-morning or closer to lunch time.
5. Drink the last serving an hour later.
7. Drink water and loose-leaf tea all morning and afternoon.
8. For dinner, start with raw green salads and use avocado for a healthy fat and filling food. Over the week, add cooked vegetables, and some raw nuts and healthy oils such as extra virgin olive oil.
9. Repeat this for 3 days.
Avoid these foods during your cleanse & hydrate:
– Junk food, processed food.
– Eating out, both fast food and restaurant.
– Fake meats.
Wanna Build a Lifestyle with Green Smoothies?
You can use it even more often in your life. You can commit to doing a daily healthy green smoothie and revolutionize your health as a result. I talk about building smart habits in my book, The Healthy Smoothie Bible, which is way more than just a recipe book, but even so, you’ll get 108 recipes that show you how to get on the smoothie bandwagon and stay on it.
A confession of sorts: See, I wrote this book, The Healthy Smoothie Bible, with a lot of heart and soul. I almost didn’t write it because I felt that everything was already said on the topic of green smoothies, but then I realized that’s not true. This is not just a smoothie book that tells you how to blend up frozen banana with some spinach to get a green smoothie and drink it because “it’s good for you!”. This book is a story of how you can heal your body, how you can fall in love with food again, and how you can build a strong loving relationship with fueling yourself, and responding to your body’s moods and symptoms with loving care.
So order yourself and a friend that you care about a copy and start changing your life for the better today.
