I love that I can pack so many macro and micronutrients into one meal. I don't feel stuffed or hungry later either. In fact, I often feel satisfied until dinner.
The weather is heating up here in Hawaii and on days when the trade winds are low, there is nothing like a good smoothie to cool down the body temperature.
Most of the time I follow a recipe, but yesterday I decided to wing it and the result was delicious! I promised to share the recipe, so here goes...
Berry Banana Smoothie
1 banana - frozen
1 cup frozen berries
1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1 TBSP flaxseed
1 TBSP chia seed
1 TBSP almond butter
1 cup green lettuce
1/2 cup spinach
1 serving collagen protein
2 tsp lemon juice
Not only was this smoothie delicious, it was just the right balance of protein, carbs and fats, perfect for a regular macro day if you follow the FASTer Way.
Here are the macros for all you trackers out there:
Protein 29g, carbohydrates 54g, fat 18g and fiber 17g
When do you like having your smoothie?
