Just because summer is ending doesnt mean your health grind has to end as well. As I go back on my journey to lose 12 more pounds, I decided to share with you some easy recipes that I am doing during my lifestyle change.
When I lost my first 18 pounds I was making smoothies in the morning as replacements for breakfast. Now that school is about to start, I DO NOT have time to be cutting up different fruits and vegetables so I went to my local grocery store and racked up on 20 dollars worth of goodies! After that I went to dollar tree and bought some zip lock bags to store the fruits and vegatebles so I could later freeze them. When I came home I began cutting and measuring all the fruits and vegatables to put in the small bags and who would have thought I would have had so much fun doing this. I made so many different types of smoothie recipes that i cant wait to try, especially the spinach, pineapple, kiwi, and strawberry bag.
With the smoothies all I add is a couple ice cubes and sometimes unsweetened almond milk or Greek yogurt, then i just blend them using my single serving NINJA blender! I love these smoothies because not only do they taste great, but they also make me feel full for a long time.
Today for dinner I made my spin of a chicken and vegetable stir fry that was only 245 calories and packed with protein (19 grams). Being on a diet does not mean that your food has to taste bland, I like my food spicy and a lot of spices have very few calories which is a major plus!
