This year I'm adding in something new. This year I'm adding in more healthy meals. But I'm always on the go so meal a replacement smoothie is a really good option for me. They're easy to make or you can grab healthy ones while you're out, too.
I recently discovered Smoothie King. We were on a road trip and fast food just isn't a great option for me so we spotted a Smoothie King and stopped. My first impression was that the staff was really friendly. I had my daughter with me and she has Celiac Disease and the staff were quick to pull out all their allergen information. There were lots of options for her and I felt reassured that it is a really safe place to get gluten free without contamination. She chose a smoothie and they told her if she didn't like it they'd make her a different one. That's magical, you guys. For a kid who can barely eat anywhere to feel like she could choose so many options and if she chose wrong she would get a second chance, that's amazing. If you have a kid with severe food restrictions you get how wonderful that feels.
The reason I loved it was because the smoothies tasted good. Ha! Seriously! As a bonus, they fit right in with my healthy eating goals. In fact, the Change A Meal Challenge has 20 options for smoothies that can fully replace a meal while not depriving you of calories (still less than 400) and nutrients (minimum of 10 grams of protein and 35 grams of quality carbs). A meal replacement smoothie is actually adding in a healthy meal rather than just eating an unbalanced snack to cut calories. Plus, these meal replacement smoothies are high in fiber and protein so you stay full longer.
