For the last week we have been out of protein (SHOCKER) I have been very patient waiting for it to arrive. GUESS what was left on my door step today?
YES! I think the UPS guy thought I was a little crazy for the little jig I did.
What do you think I did next?
I whipped up the smoothie I had been dreaming about.
Chocolate Raspberry Pie Shake
- 1.5 C. Almond Breeze Vanilla (unsweetened)
- 1/2 C. Fresh/Frozen Raspberries or more..
- 1 tbs unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 Scoop Whey Rich Chocolate Protein
- 1/4 C. Gluten-free Oats
- handful of spinach + (gotta get my greens!)
- Ice depending on how much you like 7 ish usually does it for me.
- Pinch of Xanthan gum/ gaur gum –>optional: These are just thickners that you can purchase at your local grocery store/health food store.
Lunch today was quick!
3 Turkey Muffins, Green beans, Apple and Greek yogurt to dip it in. (Its been a LOOONG time since I have had greek yogurt.. lets hope my belly gets along with it.) Either way.. it was delicious.
*Not pictured-- Pre-Workout I had the normal half banana with a TBS (give or give some more) of Almond Butter—(Its an obsession really.) X2
Brinner is well welcome in my house! I snacked on our last chicken breast earlier today so Eggs it was!
Not pretty I know.
5 egg whites, a little onion, broccoli, sweet potato, green beans, spinach, garden tomato—> I’m going to miss these when the snow comes! ( I don’t joke around with my veggies!) Seasoned with a little Mrs. Dash!
*Note: This is not ALL I ate. I do not post everything I eat. There is one to many finger dips of AB and snacking of my kids leftovers that easily go unaccounted for I’m thinking about starting a What I Ate Wednesday? What do you think? Would you be interested?
RUN THE RACK- once again! This workout made me SORE last week.. In a good way of course. This week I was able to go up the rack a little farther! Whoo hoo! This is a great muscle building workout!
Taught Body Pump - LOVING release 79 so far! I love how different it is and I feel as if it is a little more challenging then past releases!
Q. What is your favorite type of protein powder? Brand? Flavor?
I usually keep it safe with Vanilla and Rich Chocolate by Dymatize Elite Whey. It’s the best tasting I can find and mixes well. But if anyone has a promising protein flavor that would please my taste buds I’m game to switch it up.
