Out with the old, in with the new! (And a recipe too!)

I was not feeling well this weekend so I took a nap and before I knew it, I slept through lunch. When I woke up I was starving! Knowing I had a history of making "bad" food choices when I'm hungry, the first thing I did was prepare a healthy smoothie so I could grab hold of the hunger then make a smart meal choice with a clear mind. I do believe the old habits are officially out of here! 

My smoothie of choice? A banana, almond milk smoothie with a scoop of vegan protein powder.
Because smoothies and juices are part of the secret to my success, I can't keep this yummy healthy treat to myself, the recipe is below.  Its a great snack or meal replacement, I often enjoy one of these for breakfast or as an after workout boost. Give it a try the next time you want a delicious and satisfying treat!  

Banana almond milk smoothie recipe:

1 ripe banana
6oz of unsweetened almond milk
dash of organic cinnamon 
1 teaspoon of organic vanilla extract
1/2 scoop of Plant Fusion (unflavored) plant based protein powder
1 tablespoon agave nectar. 

Blend and enjoy! 

What do you do to keep hunger under control? How do you keep from making "bad" food choices? How do you handle cravings? Share your tips with me in the comments below

Hey lady, keep up the good work. I enjoy reading your journey.

To control my hunger and not have health set back, I keep plenty of mixed (unsalted) nuts and dried fruits available. One of my favorites are dried apricots which are great for your daily fiber, minerals and vitamins.

Thanks so much Stephanie! Smart tip and easy to travel with, I can keep these in my purse and reach for them even if I am on the move! I love Apricots too!
