Just mention the word summer and women everywhere have the thought of trying on swimsuits and strutting your stuff in shorts, tanks and little dresses. In my mind, I always think smoothie, strawberry smoothie recipe to be specific!
I recently picked up Benefiber® Healthy Shape Dietary Fiber Supplement to add to my routine. It is full of fiber to help you feel fuller for a longer period of time*. I don’t know about you, but I can always use more fiber in my diet anyway. A lot of the foods that are rich in fiber aren’t ones that I get enough of on a regular basis. Benefiber® Healthy Shape helps me to think differently about managing my weight because I’m adding fiber to my diet and in turn, craving less food.
I added Benefiber® Healthy Shape Dietary Fiber Supplement this morning to my Icebox Iced Coffee and I sometimes add it to my lunch smoothie as well. Since I got a good response from my Blueberry Peanut Butter Smoothie Recipe, I thought you may want to know another one of my go to lunch smoothies.
This Strawberry Smoothie is healthy and delicious. Many times when I’m working from home, I’ll have this smoothie for lunch. I’ve read a lot recently about how the actual motion of chewing is important for your body though so I always have a little something extra with my smoothie. When you chew, your body releases digestive enzymes in the stomach that help to break down food so that your body can convert it into energy (source). Many times I’ll add in some nuts or a piece or two of deli meat before my smoothie to help aid in this process. Not to mention, a lot of times when I exercise, I just want to eat something anyway and want the extra bit of energy!
