CHOCO-PB Smoothie

Here is a super delish Smoothie….Great for Pre-Run!

Choco-PB Soothie

  • 1 scoop vanilla protein (your choice, I use plant based but whey is fine if you have it)
  • 1 Tablespoon Natural Peanut Butter
  • 1 small Banana
  • 1 teaspoon Chia Seeds
  • 1 Tablespoon cacao nibs
  • 1 Cup Unsweetened Cashew Milk (or any non-dairy milk)
  • Ice

Blend until smooth

Cacao Nibs are great for pre workout…….

“Cacao Nibs contain a constituent known as “theobromine,” an alkaloid structurally similar to that of caffeine, that occurs in greater quantities in cacao and that acts as a stimulant and promotes strength, endurance, and enhanced mood.”

Cleanse Over…..Longest 2 days ever…..

Sometime I come up with these ideas that I immediately regret. But then I am too stupid stubborn to admit it and follow through even though I am kicking myself the whole time……Well this was one of these ideas folks…….

I was feeling a bit sluggish and bloated so I just said screw it and decided to do the Isagenix 2 Day cleanse

I didn’t even post last night because I was absolutely miserable……I have never done a fast before…..EVER……and now I know why……..

I managed to get through it….mostly by constantly complaining, during the day, to anyone at work that would listen and to Shane in the evenings……I have no doubt that I drove everyone completely nuts……My problem was definitely EVERYONES problem!!!!

why-do-you-have-to-be-annoying

Sorry about that……….

I did take some before and after pictures, just to see if there would actually be a difference or if it is all in my head……I did end up loosing exactly 5 Lbs, but I can see a bit of a difference. I really do feel less bloated today and just better all around!

The actual smoothie bowl was Coconut Almond Milk, Xanthium Gum, Organic Cocoa (From our Dominican Vacation) Spinach, Ice, Protein Powder, Greek Yogurt and PB2.   img_2703 But it was the Toppings that were the real star of the show!
