➜ A vacation or work trip may result in eating saltier foods than usual or drinking more alcohol than usual. It can leave you with puffy eyes and an overall bloated feeling. You can look and feel better fast with this Magic De-Puffer Smoothie. Potassium-rich bananas counteract the bulking effects of excess sodium, while coffee, a natural diuretic, helps eliminate fluids. Almond butter adds a dose of satiating fiber and protein to help you regain your balance.
