Sometimes you wake up and consider devouring your kitchen.  This was not good, since I was ready to do 35 minutes on the elliptical, and I couldn’t have a banana because of its binding agents! But I ended up powering through.

My stomach is still uncooperative, but I knew I had to eat something.  I’ve been craving a smoothie because of the hot weather we’ve had, so I threw into the blender:

1 c Dole frozen cherries
1 handful baby spinach
2.5 tbsp Jarrow Brown Rice Chocolate Protein Powder
1 tbsp Whole Foods Medium Flaked Coconut
1 tbsp cocoa powder
1 c Silk Almond Milk

This is the first time I’ve had the Silk brand almond milk.  It’s the same nutritionals as the Original Almond Milk, so I figured I’d give it a shot.  It is amazing! Creamy and sweet.  I’ll definitely be buying this again.  This smoothie was one of my best.  The addition of the cocoa powder gave it a richness that my other smoothies sometimes lack.  If you haven’t tried adding spinach to a smoothie, do it! It’s definitely not as bad as you think.  You can’t even taste it.  If you could, there’s no way I’d consistently throw a handful in there.

I paired my Brown Cherry Monster with a Thomas English Muffin with a smear of Smart Balance Light and Stonewall Farms Caramel Apple Butter.  They just put these in stock at my grocery store and I had to snap it up! I love apple butter so, so much, and the caramel added a luxurious touch.  It took all of my willpower to put the jar back in the fridge and not just scarf the entire thing.

Perfect recovery breakfast.  I just hope it’ll hold me over until lunchtime…my gut doesn’t want any more food for a while! 🙂

Off to work, where I’ll order food from the restaurant menu.  I’ll probably post tonight about how to stay healthy when you work in a place that serves deep-fried clams and cheesesteaks!

One thought on “HANGRY

  1. Just have to tell you that as a result of reading your blog I have re-discovered the joy of English Muffins. Love your creative ways to top them. This morning I topped mine with a spoonful of ricotta and a spoonful of tomato sauce, then sprinkled on a pinch of garlic powder and italian seasoning. Nearly instant breakfast pizza. Very filling and healthy, too.
