In November I want to give you easy, delicious ways to change your diet and make you stick to your plan during the holidays.
Smoothies pack a lot of nutrition into an easy to consume, portable glass. Freeze your extra bananas and keep frozen berries on hand and these are simple to make when you're tempted to shove pumpkin pie into your mouth for breakfast.
Raspberries are especially potent because they pack more fiber than almost any other fruit, which keeps you fuller longer. Fiber also helps escort toxins out of your body. Raspberries are full of anti-oxidants, which fight inflammation.
You can use almond or coconut milk in this recipe, coconut milk helps you burn fat and is easily used by the body for energy. Walnuts are also full of fiber and healthy Omega-3 fats which help you fight obesity. In a pinch, use any nut butter.
By the way, check out the protein in this bad boy smoothie! Nice for keeping you full!
If you sometimes feel lazy like me for breakfast, you can put this smoothie (make it thick!) in a bowl and dress it up with chopped fruit or nuts on the top and everyone will think you're magic!
