pb & j smoothie

It sure was a hot day in Beantown today!  But, the mid-afternoon thunderstorms really cooled things down.

Anyways, I started my day with another Magic Bullet Masterpiece – a Vivacious Princess Smoothie from Kristen!

It was cool and refreshing, just what I needed on a hot day.

Lunch was not as refreshing, but still just as good – a Bean Burger Wrap!

Spread a whole wheat wrap with roasted red pepper hummus, CSA lettuce, a crumbled black bean burger and goat cheese.

Then wrap…

And eat with a big bowl of refreshing cherries!

After work, I hit up the gym for a little workout.  This was not much better than working out outside in the heat, however, because the gym’s AC is not working properly!  Oh well…it felt good to sweat!

I started off with 25 minutes of stabilization and weights circuit style:

  • squat with overhead press
  • 21’s on 1 leg, then alternate
  • lunge and lift
  • deadlift with upright row
  • tricep extension in static squat
  • back extension
  • then repeat 3 times…

After, I jumped on the elliptical for 30 minutes and did intervals!

It was a great workout – glad I went.

After my workout, I was more than ready for dinner.  Luckily, Brant had roasted some extra broccoli for me last night.  I popped an Amy’s Non-Dairy Burrito into the microwave and put some broccoli on my plate.  It was not a gourmet meal by any means, but boy did it hit the spot!

Topped with tomato paste and homemade pesto (recipe to come).

I was still craving something cold and sweet, though, so I whipped up something delicious – a Chocolate PB & J Smoothie

  • 1 banana
  • 1 tbsp peanut butter
  • 1 cup chocolate almond milk
  • 1 tbsp cherry jam
  • 5 ice cubes

It actually really tasted like PB&J!!

Whoa!  Deliciousness!!!
