21 Day Green Smoothie Cleanse: Week Four and Beyond

I wrapped up my Fresh Start: 21 (28) Day Cleanse from just in time to tumble into a long weekend of eating and making merry at a reunion of old friends at a beach house in Oregon.

I imagine my detoxified insides recoiling in horror at the gluten-free beer and M&Ms I downed while playing hearts, the apple cobbler made with mounds of brown sugar and Gluten Free Bisquick, and the 16-ounce Americano from the local coffee shop.

But I survived, and came back to my daily life and the question of how to fit the green-smoothie lifestyle into my eating pattern.

First, rewind to Week Three on the cleanse, actually my Week Four because I repeated Week One.
