So fab eaters, Im on day 2 of my replacing 1 meal a day with a smoothie. Im still trying to work out the kinks in regards to when and what meal I want to replace. I have a lot of spinach and bananas, so this week's entries will have those 2 main ingredients. Next week (and when I get the hang of this) I will be mixing and matching with different fruits and veggies.
I made this blueberry, banana, and spinach smoothie for dinner recently, and it was great. For some reason I got full really quickly, so I didn't finish all of it. Also, I learned that humans need to chew.. so liquid diets dont last too long. I found myself chewing this smoothie, wishing it was the fresh fish I have in my fridge but I left my carrot smoothie a little chunky and Im getting the hang of chewing...
I dont think having a smoothie to replace my dinner will work for me. I was in bed hungry at 2am after I drank this.... ; \
