Like many others (I gather), come every new year, I make an effort to start some healthier habits. Meal planning and exercise always tend to top my list, though usually in all-too-vague and vast terms.
So today I’m hoping to solicit some help. I got myself a Vitamix a few months ago, lured by the promise of wholesome breakfast smoothies. I’m loathe to admit that it has sat virtually unused on the counter ever since. I’ve been looking for smoothie recipes low in fruit sugar and high in protein, to which I can add some greens—like spinach. All too often, the recipes either feature contents that could essentially be billed as dessert, or the result is supposed is supposed to taste like dessert. That’s not what I’m after. I’d like to find some favorites that taste good but feel healthy and virtuous, rather than overly sweet, to start the day. Then I can pre-package the contents in the freezer to make throwing them in the blender a no-brainer.
We’ve been enjoying the last of winter break in Lake Tahoe, so my new year routine is just beginning this week. Has any one of you landed on such recipes?
Please share them with me!
P.S. Tips for getting kids to eat more vegetables. Also, that time I tried a juice cleanse and a recent New York Times article about cutting out added sugars for 30 days that has me wanting to follow suit.
