Wisdom is supreme; therefore get wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding.
I read that when you’?re exercising, water can go from your stomach to your skin in as little as seven minutes. How do they know that?!
I also calculated that on a normal day I need to consume 2,400 calories; 55% to 65% of those should be carbs. Since I love carbohydrates in pretty much all shapes and forms, this is really no hardship. Also since fruit counts as carbs pretty often, and we’?re inching into fruit season around here. Fruit smoothies, here I come!
KATIE’?S FAVORITE FRUIT SMOOTHIE
Nonfat vanilla yogurt
Very ripe banana
Fresh strawberries and/or raspberries
Note: Volumes are dependent on amount of smoothie desired.
1. Combine yogurt, banana, and pineapple in blender on high until thoroughly homogeneous.
2. Add in pineapple bits, shredded coconut, and fresh fruit. Blend until homogeneous, stirring as necessary.
3. Add frozen strawberries and blend on ice breaker until the frozen chunks have broken up. Blend on high, stirring occasionally, until smooth.
4. Enjoy alone or topped with whipped cream.
This recipe works for almost any fruit imaginable — I throw in blueberries, peaches, nectarines, blackberries, sliced up apples, oranges, or whatever else I have lying around. I also substitute plain yogurt and orange juice depending on how sweet I want the smoothie.
