So, if those fruits and veggies sitting in your refrigerator are getting super ripe, cut them up and throw them in the freezer. Then, when you need a quick healthy meal, get out the blender. Start with some protein: unflavored Greek yogurt or cottage cheese. Then let your imagination run wild. Add a handful of your frozen fruit. You can add spinach or kale; almond milk, peanut butter or avocado; or protein powder. The combinations are endless.
Watch for discounted fruit or veggies at the grocery store. They’re perfect for the freezer and a healthy smoothie! Just remember, smoothies can add up in calories, so watch what goes into your smoothie and use it as a meal substitute when you are in a hurry. You just might find eating healthy is more convenient, more fun, and less expensive than you thought!
