Because I’m trying to lose weight, I’m really watching what I eat. Every morning I wake up and decide what to eat. I usually go for oatmeal, a healthy cereal or have a smoothie. Today is smoothie day! My two favorite fruits, strawberries & bananas, in a drink! And to make sure I’m getting a good dose of calcium, I use whole milk. You can substitute 2% or fat free if you want it non-fat but I think it’s healthy to have a good glass of milk throughout the day.
I have a blender that I just LOVE. The Chris Freytag Personal Fitness Blender is my absolute favorite and it’s cheaper at QVC than at Amazon. If you’re not a member of QVC, it’s a 30 sec sign up folks.
The blender is basically a mug that you can use to drink your shake or smoothie and comes with a to-go lid. You put your ingredients in it, screw the top on (with the blender blades) and flip over onto unit. When done, you flip back over and swap out lids with the to-go one. I LOVE IT! And you can also get extra mugs if you want more for other family members.
