I have decided to go back to basics for breakfast as the past few months has seen me gain back some of the weight that I lost since having my second child.
It doesn't help when I am making so many desserts and yummy foods to share with you. Even though they are healthy, it's easy to eat too much, which can lead to weight gain. I have also been a bit slack in the exercise department, which didn't help my case either!
So, I decided to go back to how I used to eat when I started losing weight. One of my regular go-to breakfast meals was this Banana & Cinnamon Smoothie. It is really easy to make, extremely tasty and I feel quite full until lunch time, meaning that I am less likely to snack throughout the day. Since re-introducing them (along with green smoothies, and being judicious with those delicious desserts), I have dropped a few kilos and am feeling much better in my clothes.
What is your favourite smoothie combination? Let me know in the comments below or on facebook?
