Hot Gingerbread Smoothie for Lunch ~ Gluten-free
Have you got stuffed with all delicious food during Christmas and New year? May I just say it is the right time to set a diet plan for all of us. Or you have planed one already? Would you like to share with us?
I have one in my mind and started it just after new year celebrates. I need to reduce or lighter one of the meals in a day, will it be the lunch or dinner but not the breakfast, I won’t skip breakfast.
For my lunch, normally is only a light salad sandwich or 1 cup of fruit or veggies smoothie. And that’s will cover my half day’s allowance. Sometimes soup is my first choice as well. And the dinner will reduce half of the normal quantity. Will it work? Not sure :p It depends on how long I can keep it up.
Today’s smoothie you can treat as a proper one of your meal during the day. It can keep you full and don’t feel hungry at all because of the oatmeal I added. In this chilly days, I like to make it hot that’s even more comfortable to drink.
