I have discovered a new personal favorite, a smoothie to start my day.
These smoothies do not spike my blood sugar, and even though I drink them between 7:00 – 7:30 a.m., I do not feel hungry as the morning progresses. My energy level is sustained for 4 to 4 1/2 hours. By then, it is time for lunch.
I start my smoothie mix with non-fat milk, about 7 ounces. I add slightly less than one scoop of Central Market whey powder, and then I add fresh (that I freeze myself) fruit.
My personal favorite smoothie fruits are granny smith apples (with a touch of lemon juice as a nature preservative), several slices of peaches, and about 1/8 cup (or less) of blueberries or blackberries.
This equates to a low-fat, easy to digest protein packed blend, with nutrition that rapidly goes into the bloodstream.
What have you found that sustains you throughout your morning or afternoon?
If you drink smoothies, what recipe do you enjoy?
Have you tried peanut butter and cocoa? I’ve not gone that route yet. Would love to hear if you have!
