You guys may not know this about me but I have been low carb-ing it for about 6 weeks. One of the most surprising things is I would never in a million years think that I would ever give up sugar and carbs for any length of time, I loved bread/pasta way too much to even entertain the idea. But alas I confess I have been carb free for longer than I have ever been in my life. Now I still do fruits and natural carbs lets not get crazy . As a matter of fact fruit is most likely my staple food along with leafy greens, all vegetables and some lean proteins like chicken, turkey and fish. But white starchy foods like rice, potatoes, sugar and bread that is all just a faint memory.
The reason why I went on this crazy low carb diet started with my husband who wanted to lower his cholesterol and loose a few pounds. He went full on no sugar right off the bat. Which was almost our demise.. I don't know if you know someone who has gone low carb before or you have but you turn into this stark raving mad person you didn't even know existed inside you. I had to deal with Angry Kevin for about 3 weeks. It got to a point where I was like "WOW you are a crazy person, don't talk to me until you can find one nice word to say or I am going to eat alone tonight!" I was alone for about 3 weeks, not really, but you know what I mean
Eventually, Mr. Nice Kevin came back and apologized for all the nastiness he bestowed upon me. I on the other hand approached low-carb a little more slowly than he did. Mine was more like walking into a pool of cold, cold water that you have no idea why you are in. Slowly I took things away the last thing to go was the sugar in my morning coffee, which I compare to me putting my head all the way under the water and WOW it's so freaking cold!!! but like all things your body adjusts and then you kind of slowly say "This is really, really nice."
I make smoothies most mornings and sneak green stuff in them for Kevin.
You can't taste them they are a just an added healthy bonus.
This Peanut Butter smoothie is his favorite, plus it has protein in it
which is what he thinks he needs.
If you want to send your kids to school with a yummy beginning, this is the smoothie for you. I also put his vitamins in it, they are capsules so I just open them and poor them in.
( We have a special vitamin for low-carb dieters.)
I think Kevin found the vitamins somewhere on-line.
I hope you try this and let me know how you liked it.
