Kimberly Snyder, clinical nutritionist and author of The Beauty Detox Solution, says a plant-based diet is optimal for clear skin, renewed energy, and weight loss. We asked Kimberly what one food she recommends for weight loss and why, and she suggests her signature recipe for the Glowing Green Smoothie.

Kimberly explains all the benefits of her Glowing Green Smoothie and why it is a big hit among her clients:

"In one delicious drink, we get the fuel to not only lose weight, but rejuvenate our skin, fight aging, and increase our energy. It's so easy; it's so simple; and it has worked for all my clients, from Hollywood stars to busy mums and school teachers. I often work as the nutritionist on different movie sets, and this amazing thing happens when I do: I start making the Glowing Green Smoothie, and the next thing you know, you look around and all the actors and directors and producers are drinking it every day, because they love the way it makes them feel."
