I am a smoothie addict!! I buy frozen vanilla yogurt, orange, raspberry, lime sherbet, frozen blueberries, strawberries, raspberries and put it all in my blender with some grape juice. It's AWESOME! Nothing I mentioned has any fat in it, I buy the Kroger brand so it's inexpensive and I make a bunch at once and put it in a plastic bowl with a tight fitting lid and put it in my freezer. When I want some, I just go to the freezer and scoop some out! It's perfect for breakfast or a snack and it's good for you :) Oh and I've lost over 20 lbs! :)

add some veggies to the fruits..
Healthy Broccoli Smoothie
1 Carrot (chopped)
4 Florets of Broccoli
2 Handfuls of Spinach
1 Apple (chopped)
2 Oranges (peeled and quartered)
Orange Juice to dilute
You can change the fruit and vegtables to your requirements but this is one way of ensuring you get the portions of fruit and vegtables your body requires.
Ridgerunner's Blended Spinach Salad
1 cup pineapple
1 apple (or a couple carrots)
1/8 slice lemon with peel
1 tbsp ground flaxseed
1 cup frozen blueberries
1 large handful raw spinach (about 8 oz - yes, 1/2 lb!)
First blend the pineapple, orange, pear, apple, lemon and flaxseed to a nice fluid. Add the frozen blueberries and blend them in. Last, add the spinach and blend for 20-30 seconds until smooth. It looks horrible (purplish brown) but tastes delicious! (and you will be surprized how much it "compresses down" with blending - 1/2 lb compresses down to about 1 cup fluid).
I started off just adding spinach to the carrot citrus cocktail we all love, but gradually started adding more fruits. The secret is to have lots of sweet and fluidy fruits to overwhelm the subtle flavor of spinach. You CANNOT taste the spinach - I guarantee it!

Low Carb Dieting Tip
Your rate of metabolism dictates how many calories you burn. Heredity, gender, age, body size. diet and nutrition, activity level, and your overall health factor in on determining how high or low your metabolism is. It is normal for metabolism levels to lower as a person ages. Because of this it is important to begin stepping up your exercise routines in your thirties and forties.
Ways to Boost Your Metabolism
Eat Regularly - Eating 5-6 small meals throughout the day will give you energy throughout the day--helping you to burn calories. Whereas, calories eaten during larger meals tend to get stored as fat.
Maintain a Balanced Diet - Not only how often you eat is important, but your food choices are equally as important. Nurture you body with the appropriate balance of protein and carbs.
Eating whole foods rather than processed food gives your digestive system a workout that burns calories. For example: choose an apple over apple juice.
Workout with Weights - Building muscle mass will replace stored fat. As you build muscle tissue your metabolism increases.
Don't Forget Cardio - You need to get that heart rate up and breathe a little heavier. Twenty to thirty minutes of cardiovascular activity 5 days a week is recommended. Brisk walking or swimming are good. Or utilize exercise equipment (exercise bike, treadmill, or elliptical trainer)
Fruits and vegetables are clearly an important part of a good diet. Almost everyone can benefit from eating more of them, but variety is as important as quantity. No single fruit or vegetable provides all of the nutrients you need to be healthy. The key lies in the variety of different fruits and vegetables that you eat.
Some basic fruit and vegetable tips:
• Try to eat more fruits and vegetables. If you need 2,000 calories a day to maintain your weight and health, aim for at least nine servings (4½ cups) a day.
• Choose a variety of different fruits and vegetables. It's easy to get into a rut when it comes to the food you eat. Break out and try a wider variety - include dark-green, leafy vegetables; yellow, orange, and red fruits and vegetables; cooked tomatoes; and citrus fruits.

smoothies, depending on which ones, can have many many calories and tons of sugar!
eat special k, but not the smoothies.
just try cutting out sweets & reducing calorie intake, and especially don't eat right before you go to bed.
also fit in some exercise..

Yup. Smoothies and Ensure are safe to drink.. Just avoid anything with caffeine especially during the first trimester. I know how you feel about everything just making you feel sick. I lost 12 pounds in my first trimester.
