I've decided to make two lifestyle changes this January, both ones that I think will be reasonably easy to accomplish. The first is to drink more water. I've got my 1.5 L bottle, and the aim is to drink at least one full bottle per day, preferably more.
The second is to drink a smoothie a day. Breakfast is one of those meals that I often replace with coffee, so this year I want to make having a nutritious breakfast a priority. Smoothies are a simple way to make this happen. Here are three smoothie recipes I'll be using again and again.
Pineapple Banana Smoothie
2 cups chopped pineapple
1/2 cup yogurt
2 ice cubes
1/2cup water or orange juice
Combine all ingredients in blender and serve. Makes 2 servings.
Pineapple Mango Smoothie
1 cup chopped pineapple
1 chopped mango
1 cup water
2 ice cubes
Combine all ingredients in blender. Thin with more water, if desired. Makes 2 servings
1 cup frozen peach slices
1 scoop chocolate greens or smoothie powder (I use VEGA because it is gluten free)
1 cup milk (or dairy free substitute)
Combine ingredients in blender, thinning with more milk if desired. Makes 1 large serving or 2 smaller servings.
