Five days a week and here are five deliciously healthy things to put into your mouth instead of the usual junk. You can do it, we have anyway given you the weekend off!
Add Beans to Your Smoothie
One of the tastiest and favorite ways to up the protein is to add a couple of spoonfuls of beans to smoothies — they boost the creaminess and add an extra dose of protein and fiber!
Try a Green on Green Salad
It’s winter time and hearty greens like kale and spinach and lettuce leaves are in plenty. Add nutritious thinly sliced, raw Brussels sprouts for an extra protein boost. And you are all set!
White Whole-Wheat Flour
It is not bleached wheat flour. It is flour milled from a variety of wheat that has a lighter color and less pronounced flavor. The best part: Using white whole wheat flour in your baking means you can eat whole grains and enjoy better-for-you dessert indulgences.
Bulk Up The Egg
A great egg trick and here it is especially for you! Make a sunny-side-up egg and pour in a bunch of egg white to bulk up the one egg yolk. You end up with what looks like a huge egg with just one yolk in the middle. Don’t you just love the silky sauce from the yolk — just a little satisfying!
Some of our favorite reasons: Toss half a banana, ice, and low-fat milk in the blender for a banana “ice cream”, spread a tablespoon of almond butter or peanut butter on a frozen banana half for a sweet treat, or add frozen bananas to kale or spinach smoothies.
