Citrus smoothie to start the day w/frozen berry mix. I use Orange Juice and Pineapple juice as the liquid, add banana and berries to taste.

Mid morning snack, natural peanut butter, scoop of protein powder and Almond Milk.

I have found that low fat cottage cheese works great as a protein in a smoothie and makes it creamy.

Kiwi is also a great fruit to add to a smoothie. You don't even have to peel the skin; just cut it up in slices and throw it in blender. I LOVE red chard; it's got a wonderful taste. I use organic apple juice diluted with water; equal parts or depends on how sweet you would like it. Adding hemp/flax/fish oil is wonderful, too. And can't forget wheat germ! Enjoy!! :-)
