Protein in the morning is a must if you're trying to lose weight, because it offers you sustained energy to prevent the morning blahs from forcing you to reach for a high-sugar pick-me-up. While protein powder is a great way to increase the fiber in your smoothie, it can cause bloating or gas if you're not used to it. Tofu is another source of protein, but it's easy to digest, and since it's virtually flavorless, it's the perfect smoothie ingredient. Here's a smoothie that tastes like a vanilla milkshake made with soft tofu, soy milk, and peanut butter that offers over 17 grams of protein.
