If You Love Bloody Marys, You'll Love This Cleansing Smoothie

This is an acquired taste, but if you love Bloody Marys, you'll get it. If you're serious about quitting sugar, you need to get rid of all sweetness and switch to a savory palate, especially in the mornings as you start your day. I choose this smoothie to ensure I get 2 to 3 cups of veggies before I walk out the door.
