Recipe: Pink Berry Strawberry Smoothie

Ok, I feel like a pro at smoothies. I have made them for years and authored at least 20-30 recipes.  I drink them several days a week, and I feel better if I have one. I think the pink and purple or citrus smoothies are my favorites, but I can tolerate some of the green ones.  This recipe combines healthy fats from chia seeds and flax meal.  Flax meal is high in fiber, and 73% of the fat is polyunsaturated.  Chia seeds are equally impressive a decent source of protein and fiber.   I have added a base of Fairlife nonfat milk for protein and fluid.  The berries add enough sweetness to absolve the need for sugar.   This simple smoothie has enough fiber and protein to keep you full all morning long.

Myth: Nighttime eating makes you fat.

Eating at night will not make you overweight.  

A lot of experts recommend against eating past 6 p.m. at night because they mistakenly believe that it might make you more likely to gain weight.  This type of advice might seem to make sense because we are less active at night, but it is also misleading. Weight gain is more about what and how much you eat and not back when you eat it.  The belief that separates fact from fiction when it comes to late-night eating and weight gain.
