Good morning! I started off my day with a 35 minute run with the beau (HUGE thank you to Janetha for suggested that term rather than “manfriend”). He’s a really fast runner so he helps me push my pace. He told me today that I whined “only a little.” hehe. I didn’t take my Garmin but I know the route and it’s roughly 4.75 miles. The humidity was really low this morning which was nice!
Maizey pouted because she couldn’t come. Well, Maize, maybe if you didn’t have a habit of laying down in strangers’ yards every 3 minutes on a run, you could come. 😉 When I’m not in a hurry I love to run with her but I have to keep to a schedule on work days.
I came home, got ready and made a big green smoothie. I’m currently sipping it and so far it hasn’t given me weird symptoms like yesterday’s smoothie. I wonder if having the banana, almond milk and peach helps vs straight greens & water.
I also cooked some chicken this morning – aren’t I productive? I almost ate them for breakfast just so I could pretend I am a CrossFitter (doesn’t that seem like something CrossFitters would do? Eat chicken for breakfast? Crystal, you can answer that. 😉 ) I had a couple raw tenders that had been hanging out in the fridge for a couple days so I wanted to get those cooked ASAP. I seasoned them with salt & pepper and put them under the broiler (on a high oven rack) for 4 minutes each side. I packed them for work for a little snack.
Anyway, back to the smoothie! I loved this morning’s combo so I wanted to share!
Green Powered Banana Peach Smoothie
- 1 c. cold, filtered water
- 1 c. unsweetened, vanilla almond milk
- 1 frozen banana
- 1/2 frozen peach (or about 1/4 – 1/2 bagged frozen peaches, I just had half of one I’d sliced and tossed in the freezer that I didn’t use up on my salad yesterday; recipe soon!)
- 1.5ish c spinach (two handfuls. I have small hands.)
- 2 stalks kale, stems removed
- 1/4 c. cilantro
blend blend blend.
Alright, off to work I go! Have a great day!
