Acai Berry Smoothie

For about a year and a half now I have been on a mission to get healthier. There were several reasons to get healthy, but I have to admit the main reason was to lose some weight. Nothing like looking at photos of yourself and seeing something totally different than what you expected. Also, I went to the doctor for my yearly check up and they said I had the cholesterol of a 60 year old man. That’s definitely not the most comforting thing to tell a patient. So began my quest to get healthy. I started working out and eating not only better, but less. It was definitely not easy. It took me a year but I am to where I only eat about 1500 calories a day and not starve to death. Most of those calories are good foods like whole grains, fruits and veggies. I tend to eat just what will get me by during the day then splurge at night when Jace and I cook. I am now 12lbs lighter than I was when I started and my cholesterol is not better but we decided that it was genetic and no amount of diet and exercise could fix it.

One of the things that I have found that will help with my hunger throughout the day is having a smoothie for breakfast. Not only is it VERY nutritious but this one is delicious. Don’t freak out when you see the flax oil. It is just for my cholesterol and you can leave it out if you’d like. Remember though that it is great for your heart and does wonders for your skin and hair.
