PhotoGrid_1372610662865

OMG DELISH!! – I was in the kitchen one morning wanting to make a green smoothie and just started adding random stuff and it turned out pretty damn good !

You’ll Need:

1 cup Almond Milk (unsweetened)  *

3 1/2 cups spinach

2 tbsp. Almond Butter

1 Scoop of Vega Vanilla Almond Protein Powder (or any other kid works too- vanilla flavor) *

1 tsp. chia seed (optional)

*** Keep in mind I have a dairy allergy personally so any of my recipes, you can substitute Almond milk and the protein powder with low-fat milk and a powder of your choice. ***

Blend together and ENJOY!

…………..and it will keep you full pretty long !!

Tip of the Week #3 Ohh Coffee

coff

So I know this probably isn’t the best habit to get into .. but.. it  helps hahahha

Drinking a coffee or espresso about 30 min before you go to the gym really helps. You’ll be more awake, alert and most likely workout harder too. If you just beginning your workout adventure this may be a way for you to stick to it without feeling burned out (because I know when I first started, I didn’t really like it .. )

Then after so many days your day will start to feel weird without your daily exercise ,and you’ll feel like you don’t have as much energy or maybe you don’t sleep as well as you do when you were exercising…

The point is, you want to make exercise a daily part of your life. Make it a habit, like brushing your teeth. This may be a stepping store to help you make it a “habit”.

Just cut back on the sugar and milk when you do. Make your own coffee instead of going to get one too, you’ll save on tons of calories with just a regular ol’ cup of Joe than your fancy shamncy latte
