3 Healthy Foods That Satisfy
Here are 3 great additions to your Super Food Smoothie. They add fiber and other nutrients… and help you feel full longer!
1. Chia Seeds
Tiny but powerful, chia seeds are high in fiber and absorb water to form a gel, which expands in your stomach. This helps you to feel full longer.
They are also rich in protein. The combination of fiber and protein can reduce appetite and blood sugar levels. This can be a great addition to your weight loss program.
Add one ounce of chia seeds to your smoothie. It works best when you let the seeds soak in liquid for about 30 minutes.
Oatmeal is also high in fiber and contains protein, which impacts appetite and weight control. It is also an excellent source of beta-glucan, a type of fiber that impacts heart health, immune function, blood sugar, and appetite.
Add desired amount of “Old Fashioned” oatmeal to your smoothie. Or, you can add Super Food powder to a bowl of oatmeal. You can add fruits and nuts for a real power-packed treat!
Nuts contain fiber, protein and healthy fats. They do a great job of suppressing your appetite and helping weight loss.
You can blend into your Super Food smoothie, or just eat a handful along with it.
