Do you have an annual Christmas party to attend in the next few weeks? We do, ours in on Christmas eve--and everyone in the family will be there. Not only will everyone be there, but their cameras will be clicking away too. Christmas pictures from year to year bring back so many memories, but they can also remind me of how healthy I was or wasn't for that particular Christmas.
After I had my first baby the pounds shed off quickly and I felt so healthy and good. During my second pregnancy I was put on house-rest (one move away from bed rest.) I could not exercise or do much and I put on 50 pounds. Three years later I still have an extra 10 pounds that just doesn't seem to want to move. I was contacted by Slim-Fast and was asked to join their campaign and try out their new shakes--of course I wanted to try out something that could help me during the hectic holidays ahead. Especially before the paparazzi show up on Christmas Eve.
Slim-Fast has launched NEW on-the-go shakes. These great convenient shakes come in five delicious flavors to match anyone's cravings. The shakes fit into the Slim-Fast 3-2-1 Plan. What is the plan?
3 Nourishing Snacks a day--of course Slim-Fast has great options including their 100 Calorie Snack Bars
2 Slim Fast Shakes or Meal Bars per day--these provide balanced nutrition and because of the protein help you have 4 hours of hunger control
1 Balanced Meal. Try to keep it to a 500 calorie meal. Slim-Fast suggests trying to fill half your plate with veggies, a quarter with protein, and the remaining quarter with grains.
Our family got to try out the shakes. All of the Slim-Fast products should be found at your local supermarket. We have some special dietary needs in our family so I bought the shake powder-we added our own liquid to make a shake.
To make my shake I added our "milk", added the powder and added frozen strawberries. Adding ice or frozen fruit helps to make the shake thick. I poured a cup and enjoyed the great vanilla-strawberry taste.
My kids each enjoyed a cup too. They thought it tasted great and haven't asked for a snack yet (a small victory in our house) I was glad that I was able to mix my own shake and add fruit or veggies as I wanted. I am looking forward to making many more shakes in the weeks to come.
