How To Start Weight Watchers As A Vegetarian

How To Start Weight Watchers As A Vegetarian

I have been a vegetarian since the summer of 1997. That summer, I was working at a camp in the kitchen where I saw everything. I guess being around food all day affected my appetite for meat. Most of the kitchen staff became vegetarian as well. I guess it was the idea that we had to prepare the food in the morning and evening attributed my change in diet.

Are you curious about Weight Watchers? Could a vegetarian or vegan lose weight with Weight Watchers?

The latest trend in healthy living is adding as much nutrition to our diets as possible, but with minimal fuss — because really, who has time for complicated recipes, right? But for someone with finicky diet standards this can be easier said than done. My sister-in-law introduced me to smoothie bowls from a local establishment and I instantly became obsessed with this quick and easy food option! I love this delicious healthy snack.

I am partial to certain textures and so for me, eating a lot of healthy foods is just out of the question. Smoothie bowls are an option that allows me to customize to include foods with textures that I enjoy AND it almost feels as though I’m treating myself to a sweet dessert. Here is a recipe to get you started but you can change this up in so many different ways to fit your own personal needs.

My go-to recipe is as follows but feel free to alter things to fit the consistency and flavor you like or to address individual nutritional needs…. [read more]

Fill Your Day The Protein Way

Fill Your Day The Protein Way
Beauty Brite Disclosure

I consider myself to be a protein bar aficionado. I do tend to eat a lot of protein bars in lieu of meals during the day to sustain my hunger and keep my energy going for my everyday tasks. I’ve had Clif Bars in the past and always enjoyed them especially the Luna Chocolate Peppermint Stick,which is my all-time favorite. These are so good as an afternoon pick me up and they taste just like rich hot chocolate with peppermint candies crushed inside. More importantly, they offer this great taste combination with 25% less sugar and 8g of protein.

Perfectly Blended Smoothies Every Time

Beauty Brite Disclosure

I used to make healthy protein shakes but due to budget, I started making smoothies instead. I enjoy a smoothie at least once a day. Over the years, I have used several blenders. First, I used one that my mom gave me and when that broke down, my husband bought me a new one. I also acquired one through blog. Blenders vary in their blending results. Unfortunately, I have experienced uneven smoothies, too thick smoothies and unblended fruit at the bottom.
