These days are rough when it comes to eating because with nothing else to look forward to, food seems to be the easiest thing to hold on to.
I’m not gonna lie, I’ve eaten my fair share of junk in the last few months, and definitely had more than my fair share of pizza
. But I’ve been trying to eat better without giving up everything, and one of the things I’m trying is to have a smoothie everyday. I say trying, because there have been days where I haven’t succeeded, but most days I am on point.
My favorite lately is super filling, thanks to a combination of ingredients. First, lots of spinach or kale and a banana. Then, psyllium husk
(I had some leftover from making this bread
, and decided to throw it in a smoothie because why not? And now it’s my fave), chia, and unsweetened coconut. Topped off with some frozen pineapple and blend. It’s tropical tasting, nutritious, and seriously keeps me really full for hours. Tip: if you don’t currently eat a lot of fiber, you may want to go slow with the psyllium and chia.
