THE FAB 4 SMOOTHIE… where do I even begin about this amazing smoothie.

WELL.. if you guys follow me on my IG stories and snapchat you know that I drink this baby every morning. 

Lets back it up here, I recently found Be Well By Kelly.  @bewellbykelly on instagram and saw her Fab 4 smoothie Idea and FELL IN LOVE with her & the smoothie.  She’s so informative and knowledgeable when it comes to health.  

Her fab 4 smoothie gave me loads and loads of ideas for smoothies.  I’ve been drinking and testing out tons of different recipes all Summer long, and I’ve got one I want to share with you now!  I love this one, and hope you do too.  

So why do I love it so much?  Well, it keeps me full and satisfied longer, also starts my day off on the right foot, so I’m always reaching for good things throughout the day.  It helps control your blood sugar levels so they don’t spike soon after eating, therefore making you feel like you want all the carbs.

What does Fab 4 Smoothie mean?  

“The #bewellsmoothie is a formula to help you develop a blood sugar balancing meal replacement shake in any flavor with enough protein, fat and fiber to keep you full. Many juice shops, grocery smoothie bars and smoothie recipes are loaded with sugar, specifically fructose sugar from excess fruit. Fructose sugar stores as fat 20-30% faster than glucose. The #bewellsmoothie limits fructose to 1/4 cup. 

#FAB4Smoothie : Protein (20g min) + Fiber (10g min) + 1 Tbsp. Fat + Handful Greens + 1/4 Cup Fruit + Superfoods + Liquid

There is the formula!  I’ve followed this every single morning the whole Summer, and I can honestly tell you it works!  I used to eat breakfast and feel STARVED after an hour, now I eat and feel satisfied for a good 3-4 hours before I eat again.  

I never crave anything sugary or carby (carby?) haha yep carby.  So if you’re looking to shed some LB’S and trying to keep satisfied, try it out!  I will keep sharing my smoothie ideas with you on my stories, so make sure to follow along.

Try it for yourself & let me know how you like it!

Oh Sugar.  We all love it, we all crave it…  In fact, when we feed our bodies refined sugars, the more we crave and the more hungry we get.

Have you noticed when you eat, say a huge ass cookie, or piece of cake, you want MORE.   Your cravings and hunger strike you like NO OTHER.

Thats because when you eat certain foods that contain a lot of sugar and carbohydrates, which get broken down into sugar, this sugar gets poured quickly into your bloodstream.

Your body needs to control blood sugar carefully.  So If your body doesn’t have a normal control over blood sugar, you could experience these hunger strikes out of the blue. This is because certain foods make you hungrier after you eat them.

So, High-protein foods like nuts, low sugar fruit (berries) meats, and veggies, dump less sugar and carbohydrates into your body, which means you might find that you are not hungry soon after eating.

Here is what I try to avoid.

Starches: white breads, cornbread, croissants, cereals, cornstarch, crackers, flour, Granola, Muffins, noodles, pancakes, pasta, potatoes (besides sweet & red potatoes)

Sweets: Ice cream, jam or jelly, doughnuts, cookies, frozen yogurt, sugary soda, high fructose corn syrup, sugar (white and brown), dried fruit, pastries, molasses, fruit juice, any candy.

Other junk foods: ANY Fried foods, chips etc..

Man I know. These are the fun foods, but also make me feel like garbage. 

I don’t avoid at all costs, because that isn’t real life.  I still splurge and enjoy it all.  

BUT the rule of thumb I follow is strictly following the 80/20 rule.  80% all clean foods, and 20% having fun and splurging.  Works like wonders and you can still enjoy and have fun!

Here is a list of foods I enjoy all the time.

Vegetables: ALL 

Fruits: apples, strawberries, bananas, pineapple, blueberries, raspberries etc..

Legumes: black beans, lentils, kidney beans, peas, edamame…

Seeds: flax, chia, pumpkin, quinoa

Whole Grains: pure brown rice, oats, rice, bread… I chose these grains that are purely whole.

If you need help, or a jump start to a new healthy lifestyle, I created my 7 DAY MEAL PLAN for you!  I kept a journal and wrote down everything I ate in 7 days, and put it in this book for you.

Has grocery list, each macro on every single recipe.  All easy and healthy recipes, very efficient for all you busy on the go’s!

You can download my 7 DAY MEAL PLAN by clicking that link, or it is to the right of you on my sidebar.

I am not telling you how to live your life, just simply sharing what I have found makes me live a healthier life and makes me feel good.  

 Let me know your thoughts, opinions and questions about it all! 

So…! You’ve seen me post this outfit on my instagram a couple times, but I wanted to link and share it with you here.  I cannot even begin to describe my new obsession for Alo pants.  They’re extremely comfortable and moveable.  I am a big fan.   

Have an amazing weekend!
