I was on a five week plateau and tried everything to shake it off. It wasn't until I focused on nutrition, that the scale started to move. I met with a nutritionist and learned that the most efficient way to boost the nutrients is through drinking a smoothie every morning. After two weeks, I lost an additional 4.5 pounds!
Type the word smoothie into the SP search engine for amazing recipes and tips from other SP members. I use berries, spinach or kale, flax meal and other ingredients for mine.
Power-Packed Superfood Breakfast with 4 Servings of Freggies!
I swear by Green Smoothies to fuel my mornings. A big handful of spinach, 1/2 a frozen banana, 1/3 cup each frozen blueberries and blackberries, and a scoop of protein power blended with almond milk makes a CRAZY good smoothie with about 4 servings of fruits and veggies. I drink one every day, and it's enough to fuel half marathon training AND my hectic mornings teaching middle school. Once you start drinking these for breakfast, you'll never want anything else!
If you're really feeling like a hippie, add in 1-2 tbsp. of chia seeds and a serving of silken tofu.
