Super quick to toss together, this pineapple coconut breakfast smoothie is healthy, delicious and only 2 ingredients.
I’ve gained a little weight. [Why is that so hard to say?!] I had lost almost 30 pounds in 2 months before I found out I had Crohns. People kept telling me how great I looked and I was miserable. I told some people that it was because I was sick, and others I just said thank you. I didn’t have enough time to go into details on why I was losing weight so quickly. I even cried about it a few times. [I was way emotional on top of everything else. Go figure.]
After I was diagnosed and I started to feel better, I ate. I ate a lot. I didn’t have an appetite for months and I was making up for it. Fast. I gained all 30 pounds back and them some pretty quick. I was uncomfortable when I had lost the weight and I was starting to be uncomfortable after gaining it all back. Sometimes I just shake my head and wonder why I let myself go, food wise. Then I remember that I like food. I like sugar and carbs and cheese.
So I’m sort of on a diet. [I whispered that word.] Sorta. I know I need to eat in moderation, I know I need to eat less sugar, I know I need to get my groove on at the gym again. I know all this. Actually doing any of it is the challenge. I’m going to start small. Like delicious breakfast smoothies small. I’m determined to become comfortable with my body again. Without having to give up good food. Is that possible? I sure hope so!

Kelley, this smoothie looks like the perfect way to get back on track! Loving food really comes with some hard consequences because cheese and all that goodness is so, well, GOOD. I am glad that you finally have a diagnosis and can eat again, even if it is in moderation 🙂
Thanks friend! Its tough being a food lover. I want to make all the food and eat all the foods but all the foods go right to my thighs. So you are right, moderation is key.
Smoothie looks delicious!! I just said the same thing yesterday. I had lost a lot of weight, but in the last 2 months it came back with a vengeance. The problem is that I love food. So frustrating! Good luck!!
I love food too! Its tough for sure. Gotta find a balance!
