Recipe: P2 Blueberry Smoothie

P2I seriously need to write an article about how rogue I am when I coach about P2.

It would be so incredibly awesome to have some sort of disclaimer that I can just link that says “click here to understand why sometimes I go outside the box when it comes to P2”.

Then I wouldn’t have to explain every time I posted a recipe like this. ::giggle::

To be fair however, let me explain why I allow blueberries on P2.  Over the years I have worked with hundreds (dare I say thousands?) of people through the Happily Thinner After Community Forums and more specifically the members of Boot Camp and my one-on-one coaching clients. In doing so, I have been able to watch the effect of certain other fruits and vegetables with these people, and I have come to the conclusion that these certain other foods work well with no issues.

Blueberries is one of those fruits.  Sure, you have to watch the calories as they are more dense than strawberries, but if you do fine with strawberries, you will do fine with blueberries.

You should already know how I feel about clean fats in P2, so no explanation needed on the half and half.  ::giggle::

SO ANYWAY!!!

This little concoction is really good for those days where you know you will be so busy you wont be able to eat lunch.  You can have this before you leave the house, and then have a regular P2 dinner when you get home.  And because this has the half and half in it, it gives you just enough fats to help you stay satiated all day.  If you decide to do some sort of fish for dinner, the effect is almost like a Modified Correction Day.

Yeah, more on those later.

That is really a post for another day.

Enjoy!
