Liquid meals for a busy girl

Hello readers! So I've mentioned before about my night class, well I don't have the time to eat lunch or dinner. I tend to eat breakfast pretty late around 10-11am, so naturally I don't get hungry until hours later and by the time I do, I'm usually leaving the house to endure the 1 hour commute to school. I also mentioned on a previous post about my purchase of the Ninja Blender and my trip to the grocery store for fruits.

Now this brings me to the title of my post. I have no time to eat so I take my meals on the go. How? I make a smoothie of course. I have a lot of Blender Bottles that I use to mix my protein powder in, which I happen to use EAS Lean&Tone Chocolate Fudge, it's delicious by the way. I use these to cary my smoothies when I make them.

Last night, or should I say afternoon, I fixed my self a mixed berry smoothie. Here are the ingredients:

  • a single package of Oikos Plain Greek Yogurt. (I like Chobani better, but it just so happens this is the one I picked up) This makes the smoothie really creamy.

  • about a cup of the mixed unsweetened frozen berries (strawberries, blue berries, and raspberries)

  • a medium sized frozen banana

  • 1/2 cup of organic light soy milk (I bought mines at Whole Foods)

  • 1 tsp of black chia seeds (I buy them in bulk from Whole Foods)

  • 6 ice cubes

  • 2 tsp of light organic agave nectar  (fewer calories than honey)

I blended everything and took it on the road with me. It was delicious! It was very filling and when I came home I didn't come home ready to ravage the fridge to find something to eat after sitting at school for about 4 hours. Well I did work out for 30 minutes before I headed to class, so there's that.

Until next time,

Felipa xoxo
