If someone is following the more meals, smaller portions plan, then it certainly would. For people who aren’t hungry in the mornings or forget to eat, I always recommend a shake or smoothie. On a side note, I found this new product called Orgain, which I really like (don’t worry, I’m not selling it, I’m just sharing my recent discovery). It’s USDA Organic approved and created by a physician and cancer survivor. It packs about 255 calories, 16 grams of protein and additional vitamins and nutrients added via fruits and vegies. It takes really great and comes ready to drink. I’m trying it out this week to see how I like it. When life gets busy, a smoothie is a great resource, in my opinion!
