OMG this my breakfast tomarrow just had to reblog – Thanks
Hey, I do not know about the rest of you, but this St. Patrick’s day weekend ended up being a pig out!! I Had company, a lot of dinners out, drinks and late nite munching! I went way off the deep end this weekend. Besides being tired, I feel bloated and have put on a few pounds. After a weekend like this I almost need to stop cold turkey to get back on track! Being fatigued just makes me crave more sweets and the more I obsess on the pounds I have gained, I just want food!
So today is my green smoothie day. I am not starving myself, just the opposite. I do not want to slow my metabolism down I just need to cut back some calories and boost myself with a lot of vitamins and high fiber to get things moving. “If you know what I mean!” I also need to really hydrate! I try to consume between 20 – 30 grams of fiber and I get these through fruits and vegetables. Also potassium rich foods are included to help act as a diuretic.
Heres my day:
- 8oz glass of water
- cup of green tea with lemon
- Green smoothie that included 2 cups spinach, 1 cup low-fat greek yogurt, 1/2 banana and 1/2 cup frozen organic strawberries, 1 scoop whey vanilla protein powder. Add water and blend to the thickness you prefer.
- 8 oz glass of water
- 1 cup of green tea
- Green smoothie. Use 1 ripe avocado, 1 cup almond milk, 2 teaspoons benefiber fiber, 2 tablespoons honey, 1/2 cup frozen organic blueberries and 1/2 cup low-fat greek yogurt and 3 ice cubes and blend.
- 8 oz glass of water
- Green smoothie: 2 cups of spinach, 1 apple, 1/2 banana, 1/2 cup frozen organic strawberries, 1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder, 1/2 cup low-fat greek yogurt, then add ice and blend to preference.
- chocolate mud: 1/2 cup of ricotta cheese, stevia to sweeten to taste and coco powder and mix well.
Join me, and let me know how everything works out!

It is a quick snack or even a quick and simple lunch. So simple but so good! Start with an 8 oz glass of water with a spoon full of dissolvable fiber supplement. Take a single serving of low-fat cottage cheese and mix with 4 tbsp of taboule. Only about 200 calories, just add green tea with lemon and you have a relaxing lite lunch. With around 12 grams of protein and only 5 sugars, your good to go! Just add a little whole grain fiber and you have quick healthy satisfying lunch. A healthy lunch like this you have a lot of wiggle room for you afternoon snack!
OK It is late afternoon and feeling starved as usual! I am in Target on last minute errands before school carpool. Now I am on a mission to find a quick snack with some protein and fiber, without breaking my calorie bank! After all I do have a snack criteria that generally includes no processed sugar, some protein and fiber. The other rule I try to follow but it can be difficult, is that I have to be able to prononunce all the ingredients!!
I found the LaraBar! I had seen this talked about on the biggest looser so I thought I would check it out. Only 3 ingredients, and all of them I can spell! It has protein and fiber and no cholesterol. It is vegan and gluten-free. It does have about 8 sugars depending on the flavor you pick but it is all natural.
I picked up a multi-flavor box and dashed to the car. I tried 3 different flavors; cherry pie, cashew cookie, and apple pie. They were good not my favorite but good. Also they run about 230 calories so be aware when counting calories. I liked the apple pie the best. I think it was a texture thing. I tend to like more crunchy snacks. My kids were not fond of them. My vote is I would buy them again especially if I were traveling for a quick snack to go anywhere! Share your opinions.
Enjoy a simple but delicious pasta dish! I tried it out this weekend it was great! After a little carbs got my family involved in a 5k run to support brain cancer! Ahh good weekend!
