6 weeks post baby and I have learned that the day slips away from you. One moment you are feeding your baby at 5:30 am, then you blink and you are rocking your baby after multiple diaper changes, additional feedings and cooing sessions and the clock reads 3:30 pm. It is easy to not eat at all or eat really badly. I will admit… I am a sucker for Oreo’s and will sneak to the cupboard for one here and there throughout the day and then suddenly I realize, I have eaten half a sleeve.
So, eating healthy is essential for loosing the baby weight, maintaining energy and just overall feeling good about yourself. For me, smoothies are my healthy snack go-to. They are easy to make, they pack a lot of punch (since you can combine a bunch of nutrients into one drink) and the possibilities are really endless (so, no boredom here!)
When the snack monster attacks, well I enjoy fighting back with a smoothie creation. Here are two I recently created. Enjoy!
- 1 Cup of Frozen Blueberries
- 6 Large Strawberries
- 1 Banana
- 1 Cup of Almond Milk – Original
Combine the blueberries, strawberries, banana and almond milk in a blender and mix until well blended. Serve up!
- 1 Cup of Frozen Pineapple
- 1 Banana
- 1 Yoplait Strawberry Banana Yogurt
- 1 Cup of 2% Milk
Combine the pineapple, banana, yogurt and milk in a blender and mix until well blended. Serve up!
