#15 of 180 WAYS 2013 IS DIFFERENT!

15. Create a thin-spiration collage! It’s just one more tool of the trade when it comes to motivation. You can put your visual wherever you need it most in your house to remind you of what you’re working towards. I personally have 1 white piece of paper with writing on it in black marker on the front of my fridge that says: “STOP and THINK because…” with my goals listed simply and clearly from 1-6. It has helped me hesitate then remember why and what I should do instead of just opening that door and consuming anything or something that I will regret later. One of my go-to meal choices of course is a Shaklee180 Smoothee instead of a high-caloric, less nutritious option. Here are tips to making the most of your smoothies: 1. Thicken your smoothie with ice, which will make you feel fuller. 2. Use only non-fat dairy if you do, for more protein without more calories. 3. Use whole fruit to blend in, not juices. The fiber from the whole food is a good thing. Even frozen fruits will work. Try bananas, berries, and apples, etc. 4. Don’t be afraid to go green (it is March afterall) by adding green veggies like spinach and kale to your smoothie which are less flavorful but added nutrition. 5. You can also toss in a spoonful of flax meal for extra fiber and those critical omega-3 fatty acids. 6. Add just a little bit of healthy, unsaturated fats with 1/2 an avocado or 1 tbsp. of nut butter. Makes it even creamier. 7. If you need a sweet edge, don’t go for something sugary. Instead add coconut milk, raw honey, vanilla extract, raw cocoa powder, or cinnamon.
