HELLO BLOGGIES!!!!! I know I have been MIA, but guess what-a food post! Well, kind of a food post. The last few days I have been busy with wedding things. We had our final meeting with our focus couple and they are confident that we make a good match This weekend, I was busy going out to eat with Michelle, hitting up a few places with her, including the zoo (pics to come!) and a new coffee shop (review to come). We also met up with Gregg’s family for dinner in Madison. So needless to say I have been pretty busy. With the business comes no time to make breakfast in the morning!
Since I don’t have much time, I have been relying on my blender the past few days. I have been experimenting with smoothies that keep me full until lunch. On Sunday and Monday, it was a bust. I couldn’t figure out what I was doing wrong-I knew my smoothies needed to be thicker in order for me to actually stay full without snacking in between breakfast and lunch. (I know it is okay for some people to snack, but I can’t!) So, today, I tried something different. In the mix:
- 1/2 cup fat free plain yogurt
- 1 scoop of protein mix
- handful of ice
- 1 cup of frozen fruit
- 3/4 cup of OJ
- 1/4 cup of water
The end result:
A THICK SMOOTHIE!!!!! This seriously was the first time that it worked for me! And, guess what??? I didn’t snack all morning. This may be a new favorite and I may actually have another one tomorrow However, tonight I will be going out to dinner with my mom-we are going to hit up Applebees before we hit up the mall so I can shop for the bridesmaid presents Any good ideas for what I should eat at Applebees-not looking for something heavy, just nice and light-let me know!
