I have been enjoying breakfast more and more lately. I use to only eat breakfast on the weekends. Then I realized that wasn’t very good for my metabolism. Since I don’t always want eggs I had to start thinking of an alternative… plus the whole cholesterol thing is something to consider. Geez, I never thought those words would come out of my mouth. I am trying to eat breakfast every day and eat as soon as I wake up. That’s sometimes a task. When time is limited, I turn to my smoothie action. Throw your ingredients in a blender and presto, you got breakfast in a cup.
I recently went to a Yoplait Light event, and it couldn’t have happened to me at a better time. You see, I’m about to film my first webisode for this blog and to be quite honest I am beyond busy with everything. When I find my time is limited I also find that I grab whatever is available to me and gobble it down quickly, so this was a great refresher course on how to stay on track and make smarter healthier choices for my body. Yoplait Light is launching a new campaign asking people to swap out an unhealthy snack for a yogurt instead and see the difference. Yoplait made this idea seem like a no brainer when a delicious Apple Turn-Over Smoothie was served to me in a martini glass, because not only was it refreshing and tasty….. It’s good for me too. Plus I liked the fact that they used apple in a smoothie, what a clever move. Next time you are about to reach for a big greasy sloppy snack think LIGHT and shave those unwanted calories away.
