Mornings are crazy at my house! I have to get my daughter ready for kindergarten, my son ready for preschool and my baby dressed for the day. After making breakfasts, packing lunches and waiting at the bus stop, I look at the clock and realize I have not eaten yet. I know my instinct is to grab a granola bar or a piece of toast, but that won’t keep me full. So I have started making smoothies for breakfast and quick snacks. They are super delicious and very filling. After reading about protein whey powders, I ventured to GNC and bought what they said was the best protein powder for a woman trying to lose weight.
Serving Size 2 scoops – Calories 200, fat 3, Carbohydrates 17, Fiber 8, Protein 25
4 POINTS + for 2 scoops
I have noticed that since I started having one of these for breakfast and as a snack each day, that my weight loss has really taken off. I think it has to do with all the extra protein and that I am fuller longer and don’t feel the need to snack constantly. I bought big bags of frozen fruit and those really help make it taste amazing, cold and fresh!
This makes on HUGE smoothie!!!Enjoy!
