I find it amazing that non-fat and low-fat dairy is recommended for healthy food. The fact is, when the fat is removed, it is replaced with sugars. If you don't believe me, just read the ingredient list on any carton. I did a comparison of a non-fat Greek yogurt to Trimona Bulgarian yogurt. Ounce per ounce, the Bulgarian yogurt was lower in calories than the non-fat Greek! The carbohydrates are much lower and Bulgarian yogurt is not strained so all the protein is still in. This is a much healthier alternative choice and will provide more nourishment while helping weight management.

I had my first smoothie today. Wow! Do I feel different and I'm not just saying that I physically do. Banana,frozen strawberries,almond milk,fresh leafy spinach,water, and it was amazing! Then on to the second one. Spinach, avocado, unsalted almonds-handful, low-fat yogurt, and water. Again, its filling and I am so excited to see the results since I am a beginner. I definitely have more energy! I hope everyone gets a chance to try.... God bless you all.

I add 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper for a little zing, also wheat germ, hemp seed, and pumpkin seeds to my fruit smoothie.
