S is for Summer and smoothies!
It is so fun to experiment in the kitchen with a variety of ingredients to create a delicious and healthy smoothie.
This week for What I Ate Wednesday, it was exciting to put the good ol' blender to use after being away from home for a couple of weeks.
Today, the day started at 5 am. I went for a run ( not going to lie...my deepest fear was that a deer was going to get me). Prepared smoothie for later breakfast and drove to 6:30 daily Mass.
Breakfast around 7:30 am
|Power Smoothie: coffee, yogurt, coconut milk, half frozen banana, vanilla protein powder, chia seeds, and stevia.|
|Yellow peppers and carrots dipped in my mom's famous Huancaina sauce.|
|Papaya smoothie and fiesta salad (cucumber, walnuts, strawberry, blueberry, mozz. cheese, chopped greens, & hummus dressing)|
|I went to the store and found this box of flavored white chocolate raspberry snacks on sale for 99 cents. I thought it was a good deal for a nutrient source snack that was also gluten free. Personally, they tasted gross.|
Cannot go wrong with cookies! Snack #2
|Nut-Thins and cookie butter = yum yum.|
I snacked on Tostitos hint of Lime chips and then prepared another smoothie with frozen strawberries and blueberries.
I went on a walk, and now I am here finishing some work.
My goal this week is to wake up in time to go running before going to daily Mass. So far, so good!
