Here is a super delish Smoothie….Great for Pre-Run!
- 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)
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.”
So friggin good!
It just did!
I was hoping to get in another 10k run outside today but unfortunately I woke up to this….
SNOW…..WTF……On April 23?….Come on……
Seriously. This is getting ridiculous……
I worked 6-6 the last two days so was definitely happy to have today and tomorrow off work! Slept in until 730 am this morning!
I was excited to get up and have coffee and catch up on some blog reading! While I read blogs and watched Michael and Kelly I had a delicious Smoothie Bowl!
I really love these things, have been eating them for years and I never get tired of them!
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!!!!
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!
I made my first thing in the ninja. A delicious smoothie bowl. The actual smoothie bowl was Coconut Almond Milk, Xanthium Gum, Organic Cocoa (From our Dominican Vacation) Spinach, Ice, Protein Powder, Greek Yogurt and PB2. But it was the Toppings that were the real star of the show! Dried Cherries, Granola, Toasted Shaved Coconut, Macha Power, Chia, Hemp, Flax and Cocoa Nibs……I could eat this EVERY DAY. It was a great pre workout meal and definitely made me sail through my 10 k run with tons of energy! These Buckwheat Soba noodles were the inspiration for supper. I love soba noodles. I just kinda threw in a bunch of my favorite things…..including, Onions, Garlic, Ginger, Bamboo Shoots, Curry Power and Some Curry Paste, Coconut Milk, Chicken and Tofu and came up with……… This Bowl of AMAZING….Topped it with Green Onions and a squeeze of Lime……..
