protein smoothie

I started my day with a 5 mile easy run and some core work.  Felt good to just go out for a run (in the snow) and not worry about time!  I finished my run in 46 minutes.

After my run, I whipped up a protein smoothie for breakfast.

Chocolate Banana PB Protein Smoothie

  • 1 frozen banana
  • 2 tbsp hemp protein powder
  • 1 tbsp cacao powder
  • 2 tbsp cacao nibs
  • 1.5 tbsp peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk

This was so chocolatey – I loved it!  Hopefully it refueled my tired and sore muscles.

Cacao nibs on top, just for fun.

FYI – I like using frozen bananas in my smoothies (or other frozen fruit) instead of ice because I find that it blends better.

Lunch was another phenomenal salad.  Today’s salad contained baby spinach, roasted chickpeas, cheddar with oats and raisins, red apple, chopped medjool dates and a dash of pear infused vinaigrette.

Just as good as yesterday!

 

I also had a pomegranate chobani (with a few crushed dark chocolate leaves) for something sweet.

I don’t necessarily need or crave something sweet after my meals, but it makes my day much better when I have a healthy treat!

Dinner tonight will be fun, but a little later, so I brought this bar to nibble on my commute home (but, I broke into it around 3:30pm)!

Love the PB&J Larabar – it tastes like a smooshed PB&J sandwich!

See you for dinner!
