Smoothie Building 101

Smoothies are big these days, but how do you build a well-balanced smoothie? Some smoothies are really balanced and nutritious, but some end up really high in sugar, and packed with way more calories than we give them credit for! Follow these steps to ensure you have a well balanced smoothie that works as a meal or a snack, won't overload you with sugar, and packs a healthy dose of nutrients. 

Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal

I've never had anyone turn down a bowl of pumpkin pie oatmeal (after they have a taste).  Plus, 19 grams of protein at breakfast and 9 grams of fiber!? - Wow! The warm flavours of fall keep me going for hours, not to mention the protein! This recipe makes 2 servings, but you can easily double it and have breakfast for the week ready to go! Don't like oats? Try these and see if they change your mind ;)
