I’ve come to the understanding that my healing body needs healing foods.
For breakfast this morning, I prepared my first green smoothie. I have to admit, I was a little hesitant to try the first sip, but I am so glad I did! It was delicious! Bare with me while I perfect my food photo-taking skills.
Green Smoothie Recipe:
1-1/2 Cups Almond Milk (Vanilla flavored with extra protein and fiber)
1 Large handful of Power Greens (Contains – Kale, Spinach, etc.)
1 tsp Cinnamon
1 Cup Ice
Total calories: 275
Sodium: 323g (mg?)
The almond milk provided 20g of carbs and 223g(mg?) of sodium. So, if you are looking to decrease the sodium or the carbohydrates, you could probably do the following:
- Decrease Almond milk to 1 cup
- Swap Sweetened Almond Milk for something else… like maybe water? You could then add in a tsp. of vanilla or almond extract for taste and a tablespoon of honey for sweetness.
The upside is that the smoothie kept me satisfied until lunch. I didn’t feel hungry at all.
We’re in a food rut currently. It seems like i’m preparing the same meals over and over again. My plan is to check Pinterest for some healthy and tasty meal ideas for the week. In the meantime, I have definitely found a winner for breakfast! 🙂
