Peach Carrot Smoothie

Peach Carrot Smoothie

Today's Tidbit:  After reading in a ton of places that eating Yogurt was a great way to stay healthy through the cold & flu season, I started making Smoothies for my family every morning to go with our breakfast.  I am happy to report that since then (the beginning of December) we have had no missed days of school or work.  Sure we have had sniffles here and there, but no fevers, no crazy green boogies and no doctor visits!  I consider this a huge success and am a total convert.  Daily Yogurt Smoothies are now a part of our happier and healthier life!

Below are many of the Smoothies we have tried.  They can be made thicker or thinner (more or less Bananas or Juice), or cooler (more or less Frozen Fruit or ice cubes).  My only constants are the Yogurt of course, 1-2 other Fruits and I always try to get a Vegetable in there too, typically Carrots or Spinach, but also sometimes Pumpkin, Zucchini or Yellow Squash!  Check them out:

The Story of What Amy Ate Today:
Last year I created the What Amy Ate Today blog to share my personal story of losing over 40 pounds by making simple healthy changes to the way I was eating.  I wanted to show the real life picture of what my daily food choices looked like by simply posting every single thing that I ate every single day; which I did for 9 straight months!   

It all started on May 1, 2012, check out a sample post here:  
One Day Last June....
I wanted to show that it is possible to lose weight and be healthy without being on a diet and without starving or depriving yourself of anything.  I make healthy choices whenever I can, but I am a normal person living a real life and I want to enjoy it, so I indulge in special treats regularly too.   
It has been a great journey for me, further motivating me to seek out new foods, new recipes and new ways to prepare and eat more healthily and get more Vitamins and Nutrients (and Energy!)  into my day.   I look forward to continuing this journey by highlighting special recipes, new foods and/ or preparations that I discover or create, alongside any helpful Health information or news that I come across through the above "Today's Tidbit".  Thanks for joining me on my journey to better health and better living!
