We love smoothies. I use organic plain yogurt, so there is no added sugar there, and I use whey powder that does’t have any artificial sweeteners in it – be careful with labels because there are very few flavors within very few brands that have good ingredients. But we’re able to weed through them and come up with a amazing and healthy breakfast that is easily consumed “on the run.” I have this for breakfast at least once a week, and often for a mid-morning snack.Pin It

Here’s the menu for my family for the week of June 21st. As far as desserts go, I have a wedding cake to bake this week, so I’m not doing any desserts for my family. We still have some leftovers from the bakesale Saturday, so they’ll be fine.
If you read me regularly, you’ll notice I went back to my normal Menu Monday style. I am still doing the guidelines for the Abs Diet for Women, but I’m not posting it all. It’s basically a high protein breakfast (Delightful Spinach and Dill Eggs, etc.), a high protein snack (Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie), a light but well rounded lunch (Satisfying & Crunchy Mixed Green Salad with Blue Cheese), a light snack (cheese stick and a few crackers, etc.), a good dinner with protein and a vegetable or salad (Cornmeal Crusted Rainbow Trout), and a sweet snack (yogurt). With this diet, I walk a couple of miles a day, pushing the double stroller with about 65-70 pounds of toddler in it. And doing all of that, along with caving in to my love of all things cake and cheating here and there WAY more than I want to, I’ve lost about 10 pounds in 4 weeks. Not bad, and if I keep steady at it all summer, I should be well on my way to where I want to be.Pin It
Here’s the menu for my family for the week of May 17th. This is something different this week. While working on the Power of a Praying Wife last week, I was convicted that I need to work on my physical health and fitness. I eat extremely healthy meals, but I have a problem with portion control. Couple that with my love of all things cake and my lack of focused exercise this winter, I gained too much weight.Pin It
