written by Agata / photos by Agata

There are many reasons why people decide to detox this time of year. Loosing few pounds, cleansing after overindulgence, gaining more energy and vitality...etc.
For me start of new year is the time to press the reset button. I have no power, my mind is foggy and sugar habbits gotten out of control.
So my New Years resolution is to eat more nutrient fruits and vegetables and less sugar, meat and drink less coffe :) Today I'm showing you two easy smoothies to help you start your day. Hope you gonna like it!
