return of the smoothie

I feel so free today!  No studying for me!

TGIF.  Even though I had Monday off, this week seemed to d-r-a-g…

I started off my morning with something that I know you all have missed the past week – a SMOOTHIE!

I know my neighbors missed my noisy blender at 6:30am too. 🙂  Sorry, neighbors – someday I will have a VitaMix that will whip my smoothie up in a matter of seconds…instead of 20 minutes…

This morning, my smoothie contained:

  • 3/4 scoop chocolate vega
  • 1 scant cup almond milk
  • 1/2 cup frozen blueberries
  • 1/2 cup frozen pineapple
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1 tbsp raw pepitas
  • 1 tsp maca

Topped with the last of my Chocolate Kaia Granola, this was tasty!  (ps…I spotted Kaia products at Whole Foods today!!)

Lunch was my simple version of rice and beans!

CSA greens, leftover quinoa from last night, black beans and hot salsa!  And, a side of Rosemary Quackers from One Lucky Duck.

Along with some of my favorite yogurt and strawberries.  I will be sad when this yogurt is gone.  I think the key to me trying to replicate it is using whole milk instead of 1%…I will try this weekend (maybe with 2%…).

And, for a snack, I treated myself to a cookie…and this juice.

We headed to a BBQ tonight where I had a great BBQ dinner!

A veggie burger with ketchup, mustard and a pickle.

Along with an amazing bean salad and pasta salad.

The bean salad apparently had 4 types of beans, avocado and onion.

It was awesome!
