Welcome to another Don blog posting and hang on to your hat. This is all about the drink or juice or smoothie or beverage made from fresh ingredients. As part of my program of shrinking – I choose to phrase it in a positive manner and not use any word reflecting losing or loss, I began to make a “meal replacement smoothie” as one (and sometimes two) meals a day – usually my breakfast. The basic concept I was and am following is that if I begin my day with a nutritional “blast” then the rest of the day will require less groceries and therefore allow me to shrink. We had wanted a Vita-mix for a long time, so this was bonus. My recipes are an evolutionary process and I’d like to share some of the basics I am following:
I spent a while reading the labels on the different powders that are available. Many had soy protein and/or lots of sugar and I wanted a healthier choice. To add (or transform) the taste from “GREEN” to palatable I’ve added the cocoa and have an amazingly chocolatey taste.
Make your own variations with your favorite flavors and be healthy.
