Too hungry, too soon after drinking smoothies? Oats might do the trick
We know what you’re thinking. Don’t expect there to be little tiny oat bits swimming around your smoothie. The trick is to pulse the oats first before you add the other ingredients, so that it disperses evenly throughout the drink. Oats lend a thicker consistency and give your smoothie a boost of fibre. You’ll stay fuller for longer and last through morning lectures or meetings without your stomach rumbling as loud as a volcano.
Really been lovin’ quinoa lately! Quinoa is a great #glutenfree source of #fiber #protein #iron and a quick way to get in some #wholegrains ! I’ve been cooking it a bit like fried rice with my favorite veggies (corn, green peas, carrots, tomato and spinach) and tofu and eating it with a serving of more veggies (green beans and mushrooms) and healthy fats (avocado) on the side. Yum!
