Pomegranate Berry Smoothie

I am working on losing weight. There. I said it out loud. My thyroid has gone nuts the last few years and it is driving me crazy. No matter what I do, the pounds don’t go away. I’m always tired and some times there are days that I am very confused. I’ve been making changes in my diet trying to focus on health instead of weight loss so I made a few smoothie recipes like this pomegranate berry smoothie to help start the day off  right.

Pomegranate Berry Smoothie thebearfootbaker.comI’ve also rejoined Weight Watchers and exercise everyday hoping being consistent with that will eventually whip my thyroid into shape. I’ll update you all every once in a while and let you know how it is going.

I wanted to take this opportunity to tell you that studies show there are millions of people that don’t know they have a thyroid issue. I was one of them. The next time you go to the doctor for a check up, ask to have your thyroid levels checked. It is a simple blood test that might answer some questions about your health.

The good thing about a smoothie recipe is it can be adjust to your taste. If you want to cut calories, then don’t add the yogurt. If you like to experiment with flavor, add fruit or juice to customize it to your taste buds. I really like this one and try to have it for breakfast once a week.
