(Exercise is another important component --tune in next week for the letter "T".)
I've accomplished my weight goal and lost almost twenty pounds. I won't shamelessly plug the method I used but if you want to know more, let me know.
I'm as proud of my new healthier lifestyle as I am of now-baggy clothes. Learning to cook was a feat just short of miraculous. It isn't something I've ever enjoyed and my success rates were dismal. But by tapping into the power of education and knowledge (and a little help from Google), I have succeeded.
One of the most exciting new concepts has been breakfast smoothies.
Like many people, I don't like to eat in the morning, But I do subscribe to the fact that you need something substantial to start your day besides a gallon of coffee.
Smoothie de jour is the answer.
Next, 1/4 cup of plain Greek yogurt. While the stuff is pretty nasty standalone, it contains all kinds of health-promoting goodies.
A squish of honey sweetens things up and enhances the fruit flavors.
And then the most important ingredient: a handful of fresh spinach.
If you are screaming, "ewwwww" at this point, hang in there with me.
By dumping all this in a personal blender and letting it whir for a while, the result is a quick, delightful breakfast, chocked full of vitamins and minerals that I cart all over the house while I'm getting ready for work.
As a bonus, breakfast smoothies help with the battle of the vegetables. I have an intense aversion to most and trying to choke down three every day is sometimes hard for me. This gets one out of the way early and you can hardly taste it. (You'll just have to trust me on this one...or try it yourself.)
Does it look disgusting?Oh Yeah.Does it taste super-yummy?Without a Doubt!
So try it...You Just Might Like It!
