I make a "green" smoothie. Here's my recipe for it:

Base:

2oz frozen spinach

2oz frozen blueberries

30g (or about 1 scoop) Isopure banana cream Protein Powder (or any flavor)

1 eyedropper vitacost liquid vanilla stevia

16oz Water (or coconut milk or Fairlife fat free milk)

4-6 ice cubes

Nutrition with water as the base: 140 cals; 25g protein; 6g carbs; 2g fiber; 4g net carbs; 4g sugar naturally occurring

Variations:

6g whole psyllium husks (makes it thicker and lasts with me longer before hunger) - 21 cals; 5g carbs; 4g fiber; 1g nt. carb

6g vitacost Peanut Butter slim powder - 22 cals; 3g protein; 1g fat; 2g carbs; 1g fiber; 1g net carb

Nutrition when I'm doing a peanut butter banana blueberry with psyllium and water as the base: 183 cals; 28g protein; 1g fat; 13g carbs; 7g fiber; 6g net carbs; 4g sugar.

Nutrition when I'm doing a peanut butter banana blueberry with psyllium and 8oz Fairlife Fat Free Milk and 4-8oz water as the base: 263cals; 41g protein; 1g fat; 19g carbs; 7g fiber; 12g net carbs; 10g sugars (this would last me for 2 meals at least).

I know for DS you can have extra fats, so maybe add 1 tbsp or 2 of whole peanut or almond butter rather than the peanut butter slim powder. You can also add coconut oil if you feel like you have to have it or I sometimes add 1/4 of a ripe avocado.

      Donated 50 lbs of Jeans and another 30lbs of shirts to Salvation Army. 
      Had to go buy some new clothes that I used to hate, but now kind of like. Trying not to buy too many though as I know in a few months I'll be donating them as well.

      Hello everyone! I just joined the forum today. Had my surgery almost 3 months ago and lost about 44 pounds. Most of the weight was lost within the first month, and my weight loss slowed down almost to a stop. I became very frustrated. Talked with my dietitian several times, and it turns out I haven't been eating enough. Who knew! I was eating around 500 calories a day, and exercising daily. Well, I had to up my intake to 800 to 1,000 calories. I'll see what happens.
