So this is what I’ve been having for breakfast every day this week.
Berry Protein Smoothie:
- Half a banana (I save the other half for a mid-morning snack)
- 2 scoops RAW Protein by Garden of Life
- 1 cup frozen berry medley
- 1 cup unsweetened almond milk (original or vanilla)
Makes exactly 16oz. 343 calories, 17g of fiber and 38g of protein.
It’s interesting that I’ve had a lot less difficulty with calorie-counting this time around, and feel a lot more balanced. I think in large part it’s because I’ve done a better job of spreading the calories pretty evenly through the day, or if not evenly, then front-loading them towards breakfast. In the past I often “banked” calories for snacking in the evening. But turns out if I distribute them better, I don’t feel like snacking :).
As for the second picture: I always get slightly annoyed at the smoothie that refuses to leave the glass. It’s only a teaspoon in total probably, but… I counted those calories! And they taste really good! And it’s morning and I want them. Within twenty minutes of waking up, logic has yet to re-enter the thought process.
