Hey guys, sorry I've been so totally mia the last few days! I'm back in action though!

After all that and a bike ride home, my tummy was screamin for some breakfast. I happily obliged with a tasty recovery shake! 2 cups spinach 1 large leaf kale 1 cup water 1 tbsp hemp protein 1 tbsp brown rice protein 1 tbsp oil blend (flax + hemp) 1 tsp maca powder 1/4 cup frozen mango 1/4 cup frozen papaya 1/2 banana Cinnamon
I blended that baby and guzzled it! Magnificent!
I packed my snackage for today last night: pear ginger energy bar (thrive recipe); Huuuge salad with chia seeds, hemp seeds, spinach, romaine, avocado, corn, broccoli slaw with sesame dressing on the side; carrots + homemade tzatzaki for dippage!
I enjoyed some much needed yoga this morning after such a busy weekend! It really hit the spot!! Here is hoping that everyone else's weekend was a little less crazy than mine!
