Shake, Sip and Satiate
by Liz Brown
slurped, sipped, guzzled and gorged your way through too
many snacks that you knew were bad for you, but tasted soooo
good. You want to eat better, but you’re a slave to
your sweet tooth. Good news: LightFull Foods has concocted
four flavored smoothies to help weary weight watchers and
powerless portion controllers shake up their snack choices—literally.
Designed specifically for people on the go-go and eager
to adopt a healthy lifestyle, each 11-oz box comes with
a straw so it can be enjoyed anywhere after a hearty jiggle.
Satiety Smoothies, cooked up by co-founders Lara Jackle
and Lynn Graham of Southern California, blend 5-6 grams
of fiber with only 90 to 100 calories to pack a 6 gram powerful
protein punch. As an added bonus, each drink contains the
equivalent of three cups of green tea antioxidants which
are known to boost metabolic rates and promote weight loss.
The result is a guiltless pleasure great for an afternoon
pick-me-up or a post-gym rejuvenation.
online and at select vendors for a suggested retail
price of around $2.49, the smoothies come in four flavors: Chocolate
Fudge, Peaches & Cream, Strawberries & Cream and
Café Latte. We recommend the Strawberries & Cream
smoothie chilled or over ice. So pass on the fast food and
give a box a jiggle, and maybe you won’t jiggle so
About $2.49 per smoothie
