That’s it! It’s really that simple! And the combination of the vitamin C in the strawberries and spinach, the omega-3s in the walnuts, the thermogenic properties of the jalapenos, and the monounsaturated fats in the olive oil will help to boost metabolism while burning up belly fat. It’s a win-win!
