Things are finally settling down from our big move and I’m quite thrilled to get back to posting regularly again!
One thing that my husband and I are recommitting to is making healthier food choices now that we’re not stuck eating out everyday. One way we’re doing this is replacing our normal convenience meals with nutrient-packed shakes. Still quick, easy and tasty, but also healthy. In the mornings we do a protein smoothie and in the afternoons the whole family gets a green smoothie.
For some reason, my stomach can’t handle a protein smoothie right off the bat. So I tend to eat something small when I first get up like toast with peanut butter or a hardboiled egg. A couple hours later when Josh is getting ready to leave for work, I blend up a protein smoothie with at least a serving of fruit. That keeps me going through lunch easily! I have to admit though, it can get boring fast. So I’ve started coming up with some interesting twists on our typical morning fare!
This thing is delicious, and a perfect blend for someone wishing it were fall already. And it’s super quick and easy.
8oz of Almond Milk, Unsweetened
2 scoops of Vanilla Protein Powder (we love Shaklee 180 Vanilla Chai Smoothee Mix…PACKED with nutrients)
1 apple (I used a Gala)
1/2 tsp Ground Cinnamon
Dash of nutmeg
5-6 ice cubes
Combine it all in a blender and enjoy!
PS — I already entered the recipe in MyFitnessPal for those that use it!
