It can be challenging to eat healthy regularly. One of the tricks that help me maintain a healthy diet the best is eating lots of healthy snacks in between meals. I find I'm not ravaging hungry when meal time rolls around and I am able to eat lighter. That's also why we make fresh energy balls daily for you to snack on at the spa while visiting for your treatments, compliments of my mom (former restaurant owner and foodie), made with love of course.
These Cleanse Balls are another great snack that contain ingredients like green banana starch to support your digestive system, and choline, to aid liver function and fat metabolism. These yummy treats also feature Certified Organic greens (think: broccoli sprouts, barley grass, spinach, kale and spirulina) as well as Jerusalem artichoke, milk thistle, apple cider vinegar and our exclusive probiotic strain, Lactobacillus rhamnosus GUT5Y, to support your digestive wellbeing and skin health.
