A meal in a glass, but for real this time.
I've been a vegetarian for almost 20 years, and I own (and therefore worship) a Vitamix. I've made A LOT of smoothies. I've experimented with protein sources, different fruits, different spices and liquids and fat sources. Mostly, I drink green smoothies for energy or protein smoothies for athletic recovery. I usually use frozen bananas or cashews for a creamy texture, and I add a splash of vanilla extract and a pinch of sea salt for taste (#protips). I make a dang fine smoothie.
Try it every day for a week, and give us a report! Does it keep you satisfied? Do you crave less sugar? Is your energy any different? Do your pants feel a little better at the waistline? Of course, it would help if you ate super clean, and got some sleep and moderate exercise while you tried it, right? Wink, nudge, wink again.
