This is my favorite smoothie. It’s great for an on the go breakfast or after a hard workout.
1 cup frozen berries, or fresh if in season
1 scoop protein powder, I prefer chocolate
1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
1 T peanut butter
1 giant handful of greens: spinach, kale or whatever
1 cup milk, I use soy
Blend until smooth then enjoy!
Tomorrow, I will be racing the Nationwide Columbus Marathon. This will be my third time running this race. This will be the first time that I feel prepared to RACE and not just finish. I’m nervous and excited! My IronBestie, Shay is in town racing the half marathon.
This morning we made Gluten Free Pancake Waffles after our shake out run. They were pretty amazing!
I found the recipe on Pinterest, here
3/4 cup Pumpkin purée
1 cup milk, I used soy
2 T maple syrup
1 T coconut oil
1 t vanilla
1 1/2 cups gluten free, I used a Trader Joe’s brand
2 t pumpkin spice
2 t baking powder
1/2 t baking soda
Combine wet ingredients in a bowl with a mixer.
In a separate bowl, combine dry ingredients.
Slowly add dry to wet mix until combined. Do not over mix.
Add mixture to your waffle iron, follow manufacturer directions.
We added a bit of Canadian maple syrup and over hard eggs for extra protein.
Bruce, who is not racing tomorrow, took creative liberties and added a Klondike bar…
For the rest of the day, we will be on the couch with feet up, and watching “Pitch Perfect”, pre race tradition!
September 27, 2015 I will compete in my second Ironman in Chattanooga, Tennessee. I will be also racing with my husband as we celebrate our fifth wedding anniversary a couple days before the race.
Stay tuned for healthy recipes as I challenge myself to eat cleaner over the next year.
