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."

Ingredients

1 1/2 cups water

1 head organic romaine lettuce, chopped


3-4 stalks organic celery


1/2 head of a large bunch or 3/4 of a small bunch of spinach


1 organic apple, cored and chopped


1 organic pear, cored and chopped


1 organic banana


Juice of 1/2 fresh organic lemon


Optional: 1/3 bunch organic cilantro (stems OK) and 1/3 bunch organic parsley (stems OK)

Directions

POPSUGAR Fitness:

Made up of about 70 percent green vegetables and 30 percent fruit, this smoothie helps you eat far more greens than you ordinarily could. Because we blend the greens and fruit for easy digestion, your body is able to absorb more of the vitamins and minerals without working so hard. Thanks to all its nutrients and fibre, the smoothie is incredibly filling, so it keeps you from reaching for that mid-morning second cup of coffee and that bagel you really didn't want to eat.

  1. Add water and chopped head of romaine to blender. Blend at a low speed until smooth.
  2. Add celery, apple, and pear and blend at high speed.
  3. Add cilantro and parsley (which help chelate heavy metals out of your body).
  4. Finish with banana and lemon.
