Why are my green smoothies causing me to wake up with a sore throat and mucus?

I just began drinking green smoothies 2 weeks ago. After starting, I began waking up with a sore throat and mucus. Once I spit out the mucus and have a drink of water the sore throat usually goes away. I'm wondering if I should stop drinking green smoothies because of this. In my smoothies I put 3 leaves of organic swiss chard, 3 stalks of non-organic celery, non-organic pre-washed carrots, 1 clove of garlic, and 1 teaspoon of spirulina. What could be the cause of this?
Depends. What's the rest of your diet like? If you're eating really cleanly, you may be detoxing too fast. Or may try different ingredients, leave out one ingredient you list above each day and see if you can isolate an ingredient causing trouble.
