If you don’t know what to have for breakfast tomorrow …? If you are short on time and need to fuel up fast, try a Smoothie (and I’m not talking about a mega calorie-sugar packed “so called healthy smoothie” from places like Robeks or Jamba Juice:
Jamba Juice: Strawberry Energizer (16 oz) * 300 calories and 63 grams of Sugar / Jamba Juice Orange Dream (16 oz) * 350 calories and 70 grams of Sugar. / Aloha Pineapple (16 oz) * 300 calories and 65 grams of sugar.
Robeks: Power Smoothie (16 oz) * 202 calories and 32 grams of Sugar / Venice Burner (16 oz) 231 calories and 38 grams of Sugar
SODA (a 12 oz can of Coke) * 200 calories and 55 grams of Sugar
This health-promoting smoothie recipe provides a wonderful combination of flavors and nutrition to your Healthiest Way of Eating. The addition of tahini helps keep you satiated for a longer period than your usual smoothie.
