Ahhhh, that makes it all better. 64oz of green love can give you just the attitude adjustment you need. I used: 1 organic navel orange, 1 organic fuji apple, 1 organic bosc pear, 1 large handful EACH- organic kale, parsley, cilantro, 1 slice lime. Blend 90 seconds on high speed. Top with ice, blend 15 seconds. Enjoy!
Green smoothies and eating only high fiber foods is my secret weapon to staying slim through the holidays. With the exception of Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s Eve and Day, my holiday eating rule is I do not eat anything that has less than 2 grams of fiber per serving. It can all add up really fast…a cookie here, slice of pie there, the muffins that your neighbor brought over-GAH! Suddenly I’ve gained 10 pounds and don’t even feel full.
The fiber trick helps me two ways: it keeps me full so I’m not tempted to snack more. And by avoiding the low fiber/high calorie/fat foods, it greatly reduces the chance that I need liposuction by January. I mean, isn’t it a drag to start the New Year and the first thing you need to do is diet?!
What are your tips and tricks for healthy holiday eating?
