After reading my post title, who wants to join me for breakfast!?
Perhaps I can bribe you with a waffle?
To be honest, once I saw what my smoothie bowl looked like this morning, I really had no choice but to name it “barf bowl,” ‘cuz just look at this thing:
Despite its vomit-like appearance, I swear it tasted unbelievably good!
In the mix:
- 1 frozen banana
- 1 1/2 c. almond milk
- 1/2 c. canned pumpkin
- 2 pinches xanthan gum
- 1 large handful fresh spinach
- 1 packet (or scoop) caramel toffee fudge protein powder
I used a packet of Gold Standard 100% whey protein powder that I bought in a protein powder sampler pack good year or two ago (through Amazon.com, I believe) in my smoothie. I don’t know why it has taken me this long to try the caramel toffee fudge flavor because, in Fergie’s words, it was d-to-the-e-to-the-l-i-c-i-o-u-s!
The smoothie bowl was enjoyed alongside a toasted Van’s light waffle because I wanted something hot and carby.
This was a great breakfast that totally satisfied me after a schweaty workout.
My morning cardio session at the gym looked like this:
- 10 min. stair master
- 20 min. run/walk intervals (same as the first 20 min. of Tuesday’s workout)
- 20 min. elliptical
I followed it up with a 20 minute walk with Sadie and my friend Merri. I felt like our walk time was cut way too short this morning (silly work!), but fortunately Merri and I have plans to meet up for a longer walk tomorrow after boot camp!
And now it’s time to work. Today is one of those days when I really wish I had the opportunity to work from home because it is beautiful outside! I would totally lay in the backyard and
read magazines work diligently if I had the option.
