This green monster was made with soy milk, frozen banana, spinach and pulsin’ protein powder. This was my first time experimenting with protein powder and I was quite impressed, I had the smoothie for breakfast and it held me over until lunchtime. The powder also blended really well into the smoothie, it wasn’t lumpy and the flavour wasn’t chalky or overpowering. I was really pleased with my first foray into the world of vegan protein smoothies!
Peanut Butter has, as always, featured prominently:
PB Rice Cake Sammie
PB filled Banana
I also discovered a new way to use my PB: It is A-mazing in stir frys. I whipped up a quick stir fry with some rice noodles, tofu and veggies, then I mixed the soy sauce, some garlic and peanut butter and stirred it through. It was soooo good! I think I have overdosed on PB today!
The Suma Peanut Butter is absolutely delicious. I just got it this week and it is definitely my new favourite. Although it’s so tasty I keep going back to the jar for more! Not sure how long it will last!
Things have been quiet on the exercise front, I’ve been walking quite a bit, including a nice walk along the beach yesterday. I haven’t been for a run all week, I just haven’t felt up to it. Instead I have been shredding with Jillian. I have just completed day 4. The last time I did it for 7 days and then I took a break for the 10k race and never got back into it, so this time I am planning to stick to it. I think I am ready to move up to level 2, as I am finding quite a lot of it quite easy now, except for the push ups, that will never be easy!
I am hoping I wake up tomorrow feeling refreshed and will be able to get some running in this week. Fingers crossed.
