It’s been almost six months in my weight loss journey. I get a lot a people asking me how I have lost so much weight. I’m sorry to report there is no magic pill. It’s good old healthy eating and exercise. You know the saying ‘you are what you eat’. Yup, it’s true!!!
My biggest obstacle at the beginning was eating breakfast. Let me rephrase that. Eating a proper breakfast. Coffee, more coffee, and reheating coffee is not breakfast. So I discovered smoothies. Easy and quick to make. I can take it on the run. And it’s loaded with nutrients. It will make approximately 3 cups.
Here is a family favourite that your kids are sure to love!
- 3 kiwiis
- 1 cup frozen strawberries
- 2 cups fresh spinach
- 2 Tbsp hemp seeds
- 1 cup Almond Milk (your choice of milk or milk substitute will work)
- 1/2 cup water (add more or less to your desired consistency)
Peel your kiwi and wash your produce. Throw it all in the blend and blend away! Easy peasy! It may look a bit green, but the moment your kids take a sip they will love it!
Note: If using fresh strawberries you will want to add some ice to the blender to give it the icy smoothie texture. You may also substitute the hemp seeds with chai seeds or ground flax seeds.
