My morning routine is usually a protein drink. It starts me out with protein and fiber and lots of fruit. I find I have more energy and less cravings.
Last summer I started using Arbonne's Fit Kit and love the protein powder. I do sell it on the side too, in full disclosure. I lost 20 pounds last year on the program and continue to use it for maintenance. If you are interested in more info you can email me for more information.
For this shake I used ½ cup raspberries and ½ cup pineapple. You can use blueberries, strawberries, mango or bananas. I have also added a little orange juice or a teaspoon of unsweetened coconut too. If the berries are frozen I take them out and place in the blender and let sit for 20 minutes. This lets the berries soften but still thickens the shake without adding water.
Currently I am working the shakes into the Weight Watchers plan. If you are watching it or have weight loss goals you can follow my Skinny Chick Recipes where I am sharing my Thai Chicken Noodles today.
