The recipes read something like this:
3 ripe bananas
2 cups rolled oats
1⁄3 cup vegetable oil (I used olive oil)
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup raisins, 1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup apple sauce

10 Reasons Why More Vegetables Will Increase Weight Loss
One of the biggest objections I hear to eating vegetables is that they take too much time or that it’s easier to take a multi-vitamin. Multi-vitamins are great, and we actually have some very specific ones we recommend. But they are a supplement not a replacement for many reasons. Here’s ten reasons why vegetables are better than your multivitamin
Eating more vegetables almost always causes you to lose weight, but that happens for a variety of reasons.
- The vitamins and minerals in vegetables makes metabolism more efficient, which in turn raises metabolic rate. Vegetables also contain flavonoids, which help improve metabolism.
- The soluable fiber in most vegetables dampens the glycemic load of most carbohydrates, which reduces blood sugar spikes.
- The insoluable fiber helps you remove toxins and bacteria from you GI tract helping your excretory system to be more efficient.
- Vegetables have a very low calorie density, which causes them to fill you up. If you aren’t hungry, you are much less likely to make bad choices.
- Vegetables (for the most part) are a safe-don’t-even-worry-about-it diet food. Being on a diet always involves counting macros and calories to some degree… but if you’re reaching for the greens, you know you don’t have to worry.
- Most vegetables have a “negative calorie balance” meaning that it takes more calories to extract the nutrients than the foods have.
