Smoothies are great for breakfast on those days you don't have time to cook. They take just a few minutes to prepare and don't require any cooking skills. This one is not only delicious but also is boosted with fat-burning MCTs and extra protein that will keep you sated for longer. If you don't want ...

Low-Carb Easter Smoothie

Easter Smoothie is my second Easter recipe. Although it's green, there are no vegetables included (avocado is technically a fruit). It's very rich in fiber, high-quality protein and slightly higher in carbs, so it's ideal as a pre/post-workout snack or as part of Targeted Ketogenic Diet. Preparation ...
