I lost a pound! I lost a pound! Did I tell you, I lost a pound?
I was very geeked to see a lower number–finally 175.6. This week I focused on water, not stuffing my face, resisting the dark chocolate M & M’s at work (getting a few every other time I walked past them, not every time), and drinking high-fiber berry smoothies in the morning. Truly, the weeks I make the smoothies, I tend to lose. So obviously, this is something I need to keep doing!

Since you asked…….
Breakfast: Yogurt smoothies
I recently discovered that you can make a fantastic smoothie with plain yogurt. You read correctly—plain. Not vanilla, but the almost sour tasting plain yogurt. Trader Joe’s makes a version with 3g of fiber per 1 cup of yogurt, which is a bonus. You may want to experiment with the exact amounts for your perfect smoothie—I chose these amounts for easy point counting.
½ c. plain ff yogurt (1pt)
1 1/2 c. assorted berries (1pt)
½ c. vanilla soy milk or regular skim milk (1pt)
A sprinkle of flaxseeds, if desired
Ice, if desired
Blend all ingredients until smooth. 3 PTs, it’s also a CORE recipe, I believe.
