Everywhere we turn, we are seeing a new fad with diets. It’s hard to keep up, so I want to tell you a few things that I’ve learned and I want to share a great recipe with you. Today I’m sharing a high-fiber smoothie that keeps you full longer.
I’ve been studying nutrition for years. I have my certification in physical fitness instruction, and I always have been interested in exercise and nutrition.
The main thing that I’ve learned over the years is that if you want to maintain a healthy lifestyle, you have to have good habits. Habits that don’t weigh you down. It starts with your nutrition. You have to watch what you eat and workout. There isn’t a secret formula, although having a diet plan that you can stick to does work. There is a reason that my husband and I wrote a course about how to lose unwanted fat – it worked. It was about incorporating the right kinds of foods into our bodies.
I have also realized that many people do not get enough protein or fiber. The crazy thing is that it is these two things that keep us full. I can eat a stack of pancakes or I can have a smoothie, and I can almost guarantee that the smoothie will keep me full much longer than the muffin. The reason? Fiber.
I went online and read about the benefits of increasing your fiber every day:
Feel less hungry in between meals*
o Maintains healthy blood sugar levels as part of your diet*
o Promotes overall digestive health*
o Helps to lower cholesterol to promote heart health+
o Helps you to “feel lighter” by trapping and removing the waste that weighs you down*
Thanks to the psyllium super fiber, it makes a difference in your healthy routine when you use it daily.
TRIPLE BERRY SMOOTHIE:
- 1 small banana
- 1 scoop Metamucil or one small packet of Metamucil for fiber
- 1/2 cup raspberries
- 1/2 cup blueberries
- ½ cup blackberries
- 1 (6 ounces) small container of vanilla yogurt
- A handful of ice cubes
Take all of the ingredients and blend them. I like that the smoothie is thick, but if it’s too thick for you, just add ¼ cup of water or juice to thin it out a bit.
The smoothie is great because it helps you feel less hungry between meals. It’s a great go-to breakfast!
