Diet Changes--Adios, November

Thursday, November 30, 2006

I happened to see Oprah yesterday, and Dr. Oz was on there discussing diet. Tonight I went to the store so I can start drinking his recommended smoothie for breakfast, and I now also understand the difference between enriched & whole grain flour! I'm going to try super hard to cut enriched grains out of my diet, which means switching to whole grain flour! Here is a list of whole grains you need to look for on the back of boxes--remember, the less processed, the better for you!

Whole grains:
brown rice
oatmeal
whole-grain corn
whole wheat
bulgur
pearl barley
whole oats
wild rice
graham flour
popcorn
whole rye

The Quick Magical Breakfast Blaster
2 servings, 136 calories per serving

1 scoop (1/3 cup) Soy protein (like Nature's Plus Spiru-Tein)
1/2 tablespoon flaxseed oil
1/4 cup frozen blueberries
1/2 large ripe banana (or other fruits of your choice)
1/2 tablespoon apple juice concentrate or honey
1 teaspoon Psyillium seed husks

Peel banana; break into chunks. Put all ingredients in a blender. Add 12 ounces of water and ice, as well as powdered vitamins. Cover, blend until fairly smooth.
