So many people make it a goal to eat less, but I propose we make it a goal to eat more. More fruit! More vegetables! More protein! Eating more of the things that nourish our bodies and help us bloom means there's less room for us to eat foods that weigh us down and make us feel sick after eating them. (Even though that greasy takeout pizza might have seemed like a good idea at the time…)
Smoothies are a great way to fill up on good-for-you foods. This Banana Mango Chia Protein Smoothie starts with Silk Vanilla Almondmilk, which is high in calcium, made with non-GMO ingredients and free of artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. A scoop of protein powder and chia seeds adds a boost of protein and fruit adds vitamins, minerals and fiber. It's a meal in a glass and you'll feel energized and satisfied after drinking it. Which is the best kind of meal, right?
