Hm. That number just keeps hanging on.
But then, let’s be honest, so has my habit of eating whatever I want.
So. Starting this morning, I am back on smoothie track. Want my recipe?
I mix equal portions of:
vanilla whey powder
and put it in a container to make it easier to get to.
For 1 serving (all of these measurements should have”-ish” after them):
1 cup vanilla yogurt (I like Silk Soy better than dairy)
handful of almonds (or healthy spoonful of peanut butter – for the nutty protein)
3 Tbsp of the flax/oatmeal/whey powder mixture
some frozen fruit – I used strawberries. about a cup worth I guess.
use either milk or a juice to thin out as needed – i may have used some orange in it.
personally I think the almonds make it special. oatmeal is crazy good for you, I don’t really care for it but I don’t notice it in the smoothie.
I’ll make it and whatever is left I just put in the blender in the fridge and add to it the next day. That way I don’t wash a bunch of (expensive) stuff down the drain just to do it all again the next day.
The other diet/health foods that I’ve been surprised by in 1) convenience and 2) more healthy than I thought were boxes of raisins and packets of string cheese. I usually have low fat string cheese on the way to work b/c it give me protein and calcium right off the bat & I feel like I’m 10 again b/c its string cheese 🙂
