Hunger Curbing Pre-Party Smoothie

IMG_6138

This was my smoothie before a friend’s 40th birthday celebration last weekend. The danger for me was that the festivities were at one of my favorite Mexican restaurants and it requires great restraint to control my intake of chips and salsa! One of the added advantages as to why I drink green smoothies is that they work well to curb my appetite before I am going out to eat. I make far better portion control decisions with this already in my belly. And with more nutrition and freshness than an iceberg lettuce based side salad would provide, this routine also saves me money!
