I am hungry all the time now. Or should I say that Baby Girl Natori is starving (does that sound better)? In any case, every hour on the hour, I end up in the kitchen looking through the fridge in search of something that is “filling”, “nutritious”, “appetizing”, and “appealing”, which seems very difficult, as all I really want is a big fat piece of toast with nutella spread on it.
So, my new favorite mid-morning or afternoon snack is a green smoothie. Not only is it delicious and healthy, but it keeps me full for 2-3 hours — which is unbelievable. The smoothie requires minimal ingredients, little time and effort, and is BRIGHT green. It’s an awesome snack.
* Several handfuls of fresh spinach
* 1/2 to 1 full banana
* 1/2 cup of almond milk
* 1 tablespoon of almond butter
* Put all the ingredients in the vitamix/blender.
