Home » A Menu for Smoothies That Are Low in Calories
Instead of the conventional breakfast why not try a smoothie? My recipe is simple, easy to make, and great for the health. Yoghurt is the base for it and the fruits involve low calories and low glycemic qualities. They replace breakfast cereals and morning snacks when done right and give enough energy to get you easily satisfied until lunch-time. The key is not to cheat by adding other things to the menu.
My recipe starts with a couple of tablespoons of an increased protein yoghurt. Yes, it is dairy but not as unhealthy as milk. It is also lighter in calories.
My selection of fruits is designed for taste and quality. They include strawberries; blueberries; kiwi fruit; apples; pears; passion fruit; and a banana. Usually four or five from this selection is enough. To this add one stick of celery, which is also low-calorie and good for the skin.
Whizz the mix until it is turns into a smooth consistency. Pour it into a large breakfast bowl and devour with a spoon. A hot cup of tea or coffee to follow after around 30 minutes to give the digestive juices a chance to do their work.
No weight loss is possible by diet alone because exercise is important. Muscles need to work and the body needs movement. Those who vegetate all day and do nothing but eat will always suffer from health problems. The heart muscles also need a good workout.
That’s why I joined a gym and spend at least 30 minutes a day on the bike followed by a work-out on the other machines. Stretching the neck, back, and thigh muscles is a must. Balance is also important and if one can get some PT training through classes at the facility they are a good addition to the regime. Don’t be put off by paying small fees as there is nothing more important than good health and keeping fit.
