1. Banana-Oat Smoothie:

When it comes to good, healthy food, bananas are one of the smartest choices you can make. They’re rich in potassium, they’re an effective prebiotic that helps your body absorb calcium and they help you fight depression by increasing dopamine and serotonin levels. Oh, and they’re rich in resistant starch, which helps you feel full for longer and burn more calories because it prompts your body to use fat for energy. If you’re not the breakfast type or just looking for an afternoon snack that will tide you over until dinner time.

Ingredients:

  • 2/3 cup fresh orange juice
  • 1/2 cup prepared quick-cooking oats
  • 1/2 plain greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon honey
