During one of my recent book signings at Barnes & Noble, one of the readers asked if I have any low-carb smoothie recipes in The Healthy Smoothie Bible. She was on a low-carb diet to lose weight, lower her cholesterol and reduce her sugar intake.
She had stayed away from smoothies as a general rule because all smoothies she was familiar with used a ton of fruits in their recipes and not much else.
Of course you can make low-carb smoothies and fruit is not the only thing that goes into a healthy delicious smoothie! In fact, smoothies are so versatile that you can modify them to suit just about any dietary restrictions.
You can experiment with ingredients and you may have to step outside your comfort zone and your known routines in order to accomplish this goal. You can make low-carb high-protein and extremely easy and delicious smoothie recipes, and get enough fun and variety in your current diet that you will stick to your health goals easier, and thata€™s one of the things I LOVE about smoothies.
