I have been drinking smoothies a couple of times a day for over a month now and I am so amazed at how much girth I have lost! I have lost a lot of my fluff and dropped at least 1 size since April 1st. Each night for dinner I have chicken with lots of veggies and even a little bit of dark chocolate! I have one cheat day a week when I just eat whatever I want. I believe a big part of my weight loss is the organic aspect of what I am putting into my body, when the liver doesnt have to work so hard to process toxins it can get to work on processing fats and flushing all those pesky calories out! I highly recommend choosing organic at every opportunity and considering how many products are shelved together it's easy to pick them up when you do your regular grocery shopping. Organic living is also about sustainability. This means our lands aren't being destroyed by chemicals and pesticides.
My favourite smoothie tastes like a peanut butter sandwich! Oh my goodness it is soooo good!
3/4 cup of frozen berries (I use raspberries, blackberries and black currants)
Just cover the berries with Pom juice (Pom Wonderful or Bolthouse)
Add 1/2 cup almond milk
1 tbsp ground chia (you will have to grind them at home)
2 tbsp almond butter
1 scoop of Organic Clear Fiber (Available at your local health food store)
1 scoop of unflavoured iso-whey protein powder
Blend until it is all ground and smooth.
What I love about this smoothie is all the protein and fiber that keep me going until lunch time!
Have a fabulous day!
