If you’re a fan of fruits and veggies I strongly suggest that you invest in a freezer and frozen veggies. This is much better for storage and convenience and will end up saving you a lot of money. Plus there is nothing more disappointing than wanting to eat some delicious strawberries and you pull a tray of it from the fridge only to discover that half of it is covered in mold. Also, frozen fruit is far superior for making smoothies, which should become a large part of your life from now on. Not only are they delicious and filling, but they are simple to make. Here is a strawberry smoothie/gelato that I love. And by love, I mean I made this every day for 5 months straight. It’s that good.
Frozen Strawberries (2-5 cups)
Greek Yogurt (1-2 Cups)
Stevia (To Taste)
Blend 1-2 Cups Greek Yogurt with stevia (sweeten to taste)
Slowly add the amount of frozen strawberries you’d like until it reaches the consistency you desire.
More Strawberries = Thicker/Ice cream like consistency
Less Strawberries = Lighter/Smoothie like consistency
For a delightful, sweeter finish, add fat free whip cream on top.

This recipe is the perfect way to hit a protein/fiber goal while not wrecking your calorie balance. And on a hot day it will make your insides feel like it took a nap in an ice machine while everyone else looks like they fell asleep in the sun. And you can easily fill half a blender and all of your belly with this much food. Game, set, match.
