Hubby is an avid runner but I find with 10 animals, a full time job, a husband to care for and life in general I only end up at the gym a few times a week. To offset my lack of gym time I take the dogs for regular walks and walk to and from work but I also try to eat a well balanced diet.
In comes the Green Smoothie! I subscribe to a wonderful magazine called Vegetarian Times and one article had low calorie meal options. One was the green smoothie which takes only minutes to make, is a super healthy energy booster and I find it pretty tasty! I’ve seen many variations on this type of smoothie but nothing as simple. I’ve been drinking it every morning this week and also find it very filling. I drink the smoothie before I head to work and am still full by my first break. That’s something even cereal doesn’t do!
2 cups of freshly washed kale
1 cup of soymilk
1 tbsp. ground flax seeds (optional)
Combine in a blender or food processor, blending until smooth. Then drink up!
