THM Go To Breakfast and Snack

One thing I have found at about myself over the years concerning breakfast is that I like to eat immediately when I wake up and I don't like fixing anything complicated. So my go to breakfast on THM has become a smoothie. It took me a couple of weeks to get it just right the way I like it. I use the following ingredients.
1 1/2 cups of unsweetened almond milk
1 scoop chocolate Jay Robb protein powder
2 tsp of cocoa powder
2 tsp of xylitol
peaches, strawberries, cherries, and other berries
I typically have it between 7 - 8 in the morning and it holds me over until 11:00 when I eat an early lunch.

My other go to is for snack time. Sometimes I mix it in my yogurt and others I just eat it plain. My daughter really loves this one as well. I love granola and was missing it. I had not yet tried collecting all the ingredients that are called for in the THM book to make my own. When we visited Whole Foods I found this on the shelf. It isn't perfect for the plan but it comes mighty close and I am not a THM purist and have still lost weight using it. The sweetner is stevia and the flours in this product is oat flour, brown rich flour, and garbanzo flour.
