Happy Monday! I typically like Mondays just as much as the next person, but today I’m trying to start the week with a more positive outlook. I am SO thankful to have a job! And as insane as this week will be (annual gala is on Saturday), I’m glad I am able to work hard, love a challenge, and enjoy being busy!
Breakfast was a blogger-superstar combo.
Half a breakfast cookie ala Gina!
(I used 1/2 c. oats, 1/2 mashed banana, splash soymilk, 1/2 scoop chocolate soy protein powder, a couple chopped up strawberries, 1 TBS. dark chocolate dreams peanut butter, dash of cinnamon, sprinkle of stevia). So good! And one of my favorite flavor combos ever!
Half (or a small) green smoothie! (Hubs and I split this breakfast items today).
(I used a mushy banana, frozen mango, a couple small handfuls of ice, a splash of OJ, and a ton of kale!). It was my first time using kale in a smoothie and I made sure to have a very strong, sweet fruit-based smoothie. The kale was fine! I was scared it was going to be super bitter, but no! Question though: if anyone else has made spinach and kale based smoothies, did you notice the kale was “chunkier” leaving more super tiny pieces to chew? Maybe my blender doesn’t like it’s almost-daily use, or maybe it’s not thankful to have a job this Monday morning!
Much love, have a fantastic day!
