Smoothies 

I’ve been off of my smoothie game lately! This morning I thought I’d share my breakfast with you guys.
Rise & Shine Smoothie                                                 My ingredients are usually raw, or natural (nothing packeged, or processed) but I decided to go against my normal smoothie guidelines and add a meal replacement in it as well. The breakfast essentials packed a lot of protein. Now that I think about, so did the soy milk (laughs). Oh well, the chocolate flavoring went well with the banana. On a healthy note, it also packed:

  • 21 vitamins & minerals 
  • 13g of protein
  • 2x the calcium
  • 2x the vitamin D

Blueberry-Banana Smoothie
My usual smoothie would consist of 

  • 1 banana (potassium)
  • 1/4 c of blueberries (antioxidants)
  • 3 spoonfuls of Greek Yogurt
  • 1 c soy milk
  • 1 tbsp honey


I’ve been using MyFitnessPal for the past month to keep track of my calories. What I love about this app is that I was able to tailor my plan based off of my input my goals. When inputting my meals, I can scan the barcode of my ingredients and it’ll auto fill the nutritional information. It’ll also inform me it’s nutritional values, when an ingredient is high or low in a vitamin or mineral, and when I’ve reached my macros goal(s), which makes me feel accomplished. Even if I’m preparing a dish, I can create a recipe putting it in as a whole— I cook family sized dishes, and it’ll recalculate the meal as 1 serving.


The MyFitnessPal also offers a sister app, MapMyRun that uses your location to measure distance and time of my workout. Now this one I haven’t used yet. I haven’t ran in sometime, but enjoyed running on a track. Where I live most tracks are connected to the schools and the public is prohibited from using it during school hours. Well yesterday was the last day of school so I have the entire summer to utilize it! I’m excited and nervous at the same time. But I will start running again next week.

Until Next Time,

T.

  1. Good for you on doing the healthy thing! I come and go with that (currently in “gone” mode >_<). I've got a lot on my mind and my food intake and exercise don't seem to be part of my thoughts. You inspired me to go through with my plan to work from the library instead of the coffee shop! It's cheaper and the longer walk will do me good! ^_^
