Our fast paced and convenience driven lifestyle has us conditioned to demand things now. While I strive to eat and feed my family real, clean food; sometimes food that is fast or pre-made is necessary. For example, on those rushed mornings, I feel better choosing a Shaklee smoothie over a bagel or cereal. Another example, is when my children (child I should say as it only happens with one of them) won’t eat breakfast before school, I would rather them get protein and vitamins than junk or nothing at all! I also despise fast food chains. Therefore, my go-to for a fast meal on the go is Shaklee’s meal replacement bars. The meal bars and snacks are great to throw in my purse for when one of my children says they are hungry while we are out or for a quick meal while we are traveling.
I feel Shaklee’s snack bars are better than other prepared snacks my children can eat. I know and trust the company!
Additionally, if you have been reading my blog, you can probably tell that I love smoothies. Sometimes, we make fruit smoothies and sometimes we make protein smoothies. Some of my favorite smoothie recipes are below.
Lastly, for many people (myself included) after eating not-so-well, a reboot is a great way to jump start healthy eating. For me, it resets my body and drastically reduces my sugar cravings. When I need to lose weight, it helps me to have the structure of the Turnaround program and 180 app. You can read more about them here.
