Quick, Healthy, Liquid Meal

Want to make a drink that'll substitute for a small meal that has no cholesterol, little sugar, plenty of veggie goodies, healthy fat and protein and tastes good too?

One 12 ounce can of V8 Juice
One and a half Tspns of olive oil
Two Tbsps of Bob's Red Mill Soy Protein Powder.

Pour in about 1/2 of the can of juice into a glass. Add the protein powder and stir until well blended. Add the olive oil and stir. Add the rest of the juice and stir again. Drink.

This is pretty interesting, using liquid meal replacement diets as a kick start for someone trying to lose weight. I personally know a few people who have started on this diet just to lose that initial weight to give them motivation to keep going. The hardest thing for some people is the start. Going on a normal diet without seeing any results for a while disheartens a lot of people, but this would be a good kick start!

The only problem with doing this exclusively for a few days is that if you liked V8 before you started, you might have a bit of trouble drinking it later. But, eventually the enjoyment comes back!
