Morning! What a dreary, dreary day. I guess this is what we have to look forward to all week. Blah.
Yesterday I went to hot yoga at The Yoga Room. The instructor’s name is Wesley and he is one of my favorite teacher’s I’ve ever taken. I love the teachers that don’t take yoga so incredibly seriously, but still are yogis. He gives an amazing class, but still stops to tell us to watch Mob Wives and Rosie Pope, Maternity Concierge. Who wouldn’t love hearing about that while you’re in the middle of holding extended side angle? Love him.
I’ve been so bored with dinner lately. I need to find new inspiration, which probably require going back to some of my favorite cookbooks. I just need to find time to open them up now! This day time job thing really gets in the way of my creativity!
In the mornings I’ve been having a smoothie for breakfast. It’s so easy for me to just grab and go, even if I’m making a smoothie 5 minutes before I REALLY need to get out of the house. I don’t know about you, but whenever I carry smoothies, I ALWAYS get weird looks and second glances. No one really asks what’s in it, but I know they wonder. So….here’s what’s in my smoothie.
[print_this]Morning Get Me Out of Bed Smoothie
- 2 cups baby spinach
- 1 banana
- 1 – 1 1/2 cups almond milk
- 1/4 cup blueberries
- 1 tsp maca
- 1 tbs chia seeds
- 1 large scoop SunWarrior Chocolate Brown Rice Protein (this rocks)
- 1 large tbsp peanut butter
- 2 cups crushed ice
Add the banana, spinach and almond milk to the blender and blend. Add the rest of the ingredients, and enjoy! [/print_this]
Some of you have probably had green smoothies (or green monsters) before, but if you haven’t, you really cannot taste the spinach AT ALL. It is totally masked by everything else.
Give it a try, the nut butter and protein powder give the smoothie great staying power!
I’m off to work, the gym to hit up the elliptical and the dentist!
Have a great day!
What’s your favorite smoothie mix in?
