I always get a little excited when I am mixing a smoothie now that I have added spinach…..I can’t wait to see what horrific shade it will turn…..
“Shade of Grey” Smoothie
- 1 cup frozen peaches
- 1/2 cup mixed berries
- 2 cups spinach
- 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 1 scoop EAS Lean 15 Vanilla protein powder
- 1 tbsp. chia
Despite the horrific shade of grey…..it was delicious! I love when my meal represents the colors of the rainbow. If you mix every color don’t you get black? And isn’t grey pretty close to black? Just sayin!!!!
I forgot Jeremy had a meeting this morning and I wouldn’t have help with the boys so getting to the 8am Bootcamp was pretty much a laughable aspiration. We are going to go to the one on Saturday morning…….hopefully. Once again, a lofty aspiration, but we are going to try our best!!!
While I was waiting on him to get back so we could do Bob’s workout together, I baked.
I baked some incredible muffins! They are from the gorgeous girls at Tone-It-Up
They are a low-fat oatmeal banana chip muffin. Their recipe calls for carob chips but I didn’t have any nor do I know where to get any. I know carob chips have half the calories of chocolate chips, but I used mini chocolate chips instead. These are so delicious. They would be very good without chocolate chips, with walnuts or with both! I calculated the nutrition value for a few different variations.
With 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips:
161 calories, 33g carbs, 3g fat, 3g fiber, 0 cholesterol, 3g protein
Without chocolate chips:
114 calories, 27g carbs, 1g fat, 3g fiber, 0 cholesterol, 2g protein
With 1/2 cup walnuts:
147 calories, 28g carbs, 4g fat, 3g fibers, 0 cholesterol, 3g protein
I started out having just half, then I had to eat the other half immediately!
This is slowly but surely no longer the most intense workout ever. Each time I am finding myself hanging in there longer and longer. TODAY, I was able to hold the squat position for the entire time each time. I may not have had my thighs parallel, but I wasn’t standing there with my hands on my hips cursing Bob to hell. I still hate the runners lunge push-ups but I do them anyway. They are just weird and awkward for me. What is the point of those anyway? Maybe if I knew that, I would enjoy them, well, maybe just not hate them.
1 cup leftover broccoli, 1/4 cup chickpeas, 1/4 cup red kidney beans.
Apple & 1/2 cup cantaloupe.
I ended up not eating the apple at lunch but ate it later for a snack along with some popcorn.
Pop Secret 100 calorie Pop.
