I was so close to sleeping in this morning but after weighing myself and realizing I gained 6 lbs over the past couple weeks, I got my butt out of bed and hit the road for a 5 mile run. I don’t know why I thought I was being so healthy in Germany when in reality on my last 4 day trip I had 2 cheeseburgers with fries, alot of white bread, and even had a candy bar for dinner!? I also ate some fruit and granola bars but when dinner time came around I kept opting for fatty, comfort foods! 😦
I don’t believe in diets nor do I ever stick to them. So to lose the weight I’m going to do it by eating fresh healthy foods, less processed crap, and continue working-out!
To start my day off with LOTS of healthy nutrients, I prepared a Green Monstah Smoothie! In the mix:
- 2 cups of baby spinach
- 3/4 cup almond milk
- 6 strawberries
- 1 frozen banana
- 1 tablespoon almond butter
- 1 tablespoon ground flax-seed
- 2-3 ice cubes <— probably didn’t need ice since the frozen banana did the trick
Add all ingredients to the blender and enjoy!
OMG it was so good!! Seriously! I thought it would come tasting OK-ish but it was delicious and something I’ll be making all the time. Spinach is a great way to LOAD up on Vitamin’s A and K….. Hellz yeah! 😀
I also made a Black Green Monstah Smoothie for Mike. I switched up the ingredients and added the following to the blender:
- 2 cups baby spinach
- 1 cup almond milk
- 1/2 cup frozen blueberries
- 1 tablespoon chia seeds
- 1/3 cup coconut flakes
- 2 ice cubes
Let’s hope he likes it! Alright, time to head to the Cape… talk to ya later.
**UPDATE: Mike liked it but we both agreed the Green Monstah Smoothie was better than the Black one! I just need to tweak it with a little something. Maybe add almond butter? Or a banana? 🙂
