I had an early workout filled with abs, legs, and a 3 mile run. I came home and made a large Vega nutrition shake with half natural, half chocolate protein. I added almond milk, ice, and frozen bananas.
Vega claims there are 6 servings of greens and 20 grams of protein in each scoop. Does anyone have thoughts on this? To be honest, I am not convinced that drinking one of their shakes is the same as eating 6 cups of greens, but I really do enjoy them and like to add any extra vitamins to my diet!
Served with toast topped with peanut butter and honey. Note: buying the just-peanuts peanut butter is only helpful if you don't drizzle it with honey ;)
After breakfast, I quickly made a batch of these Blue Sky Bran Muffins from Smitten Kitchen. The recipe says use any fruit you would like, but I added frozen cranberries and frozen blueberries.
These are so so good.
|LOVE Smitten Kitchen for all things cooking and baking. Her recipes have never failed me.|
For lunch, I had a muffin, apple and peanut butter, and a bag of carrot and celery slices. All unpictured, because I was in class.
I spent my afternoon studying at home. I finished with more lunch at about 2pm (can I still call this lunch?). Tomato soup and sliced turkey from Whole Foods.
Aaron and I cooked dinner together: we made chicken pot pie with the leftover roasted chicken. We were both starving, so I skipped the side of steamed broccoli I had planned on eating... lets hope that Vega really has all those greens! ;)
Oh, and after dinner, I indulged in some HGTV with my new favorite show, "Fixer Upper." Has anyone watched this? I am obsessed.
What is your favorite HGTV show?
Do you do any sort of supplement drink or shake?
Thanks for hosting, Jenn!
