Liezl Jayne is her name. She’s young, South African and she has produced this terrific video that I happened to stumble across the other day. Why do I love it so? Not only are the recipes simple, healthy and realistic … and tasty! … they’re the sort of thing I like to eat. Her meals and smoothies can be quickly whipped up with no fuss or added expense. I don’t want to lose 30 pounds, but 15 to 20 pounds would do the trick nicely.
What I find really appealing is her WEIGHT LOSS MEAL PREP FOR THE WEEK, a meal plan designed for women of all ages. Because I work during the week and come home at 7 pm, I like the idea of preparing my dinners in advance and storing them in individual containers in the fridge.
A week later: every morning before heading out I’ve been making Liezl’s breakfast smoothie. I love it. It’s a meal all in one and it tides you over until noon. My espresso is in there as well as the oatmeal. I use only one banana and add only one teaspoon of cocoa instead of the two that she recommends. Go to the video and see how it’s done. Oh, and be careful not to add too much water because you want this smoothie to be thick and creamy.
Here’s the video and below that her website with the meal prep recipes. Enjoy!
