Taking a cue from my Dad’s Facebook Status I am going to wish everyone a Happy Hump Day! 🙂
Since Wednesday are a good halfway point through out the week I like to dedicate it my speedwork day. This morning I jumped on the treadmill and did intervals of 7.0, 7.5 and 8.0. It was a good 30 minute sweat session that required a good stretch afterwards.
The blender comes specially equipped with a smoothie setting that has an automatic 1 minute shut off after it blends and pulses the smoothie to perfection
In the blender I had
This was my first experiment with Coconut Milk.
I was sent three different flavors and fully intend to do a taste comparison full review, but I thought it would make the perfect addition to my smoothie this morning. It added a nice creamy texture to it without any coconut flavoring from what I could taste.
The Pineapple Powder was also a new smoothie addition.
Pineapple Powder by Just Tomatoes is ground dried pineapple and is great for smoothies. It gave the pineapple flavoring needed with out having to keep fresh or frozen pineapple in my house.
I was very happy with the smoothie results.
Since I can’t have bananas I usually end up adding strawberries to my green monster smoothies which has them looking more like poop. The mango and pineapple powder allowed the spinach to remain this beautiful vibrant green color, yet remain just as delicious as before. We have a winner here with this one folks!
With the smoothie I also had one of Melissa’s Whole Wheat Sweet Potato Date Muffins.
After a few seconds in the microwave it was perfection.
The perfect summer time breakfast… the forecast has our temps in the 90s all week. Yikes!
Who watched Biggest Loser last night? What are your thoughts on their marathon running?
I have to admit I was scared when I saw they only had 30 days to train for it, but then I started thinking about all the running they probably did during the show that was never filmed and they were probably secretly building them up for one. I was sad they didn’t film more of the nutrition aspects of the marathon or how they really felt afterwards. And even I have to admit that my eyes got teary when Ron crossed the finish line.
