Portion revelation!

This morning I laughed long and hard at myself and then I got over it.  My smoothie servings are WAY TOO LARGE!!!!!  Ugh!

I spent this morning searching the internet for more smoothie ideas and found that the average serving size for the smoothies I found was 8 oz.  I have been yielding and drinking twice that amount!  So, for this point on, I will be making my smoothies and storing half in the fridge for later.  According to wholeliving.com, one of the many websites I found this morning, the smoothie recipes yield 2 servings and the one I chose this morning was a really refreshing blueberry smoothie – you can find it at the following link:  http://www.wholeliving.com/photogallery/smoothies?#slide_15  

This is someone else’s creation, so please click on the link for the recipe.  The 8 oz serving was enough to satisfy me.  I did have a cup of coffee with creamer and that may have helped.

Later, I’ll be picking up ingredients to make my own mixes to share. Image

  1. As far as portion control with smoothies is concerned – if you cut out the sugar and dairy altogether, you can have that wonderful 16ounces with ZERO guilt and way less calories!

    Dark green leafy smoothies, a little fruit and stevia for sweetness is the way to go!

    Give it a try! mmmmmmmmm…I think I’ma make me one right now!
