Hey guys, I’m back! Happy Saint Patrick’s Day! I’m fearlessly wearing green today…despite the fact that the only shirt I could find was an old, extra-large, tee-shirt. It’s obviously too big and extremely tacky. So yes, I look the opposite of a fashion statement, but hey! It’s green and I won’t get pinched…there are perks to appearing sloppy.
This morning started with an epic, protein packed breakfast of an egg + egg white scramble with chicken chunks and goat cheese. Fueled up with that, I then did a 30 minute Nike workout with my i-pod. Seriously, this workout had me sweating…and by the end of it, I was shaking. I love the workout apps I have on my i-touch. Maybe in the near future I’ll do a post on all of my favourites!
After my workout, I whipped up a green smoothie for me and my sister for lunch. It was so amazing I have to share it with you all. My sister said that it was the best green smoothie she’s had (and we make a lot of them!). I paired the shake with a few organic crackers with antipasto, a couple slices of fresh mango and a couple dates for dessert.
I loved the fact that this drink dished out half the amount of vitamin A we need in a day, a third of the vitamin C, and packed a good punch of calcium and iron in as well! This smoothie serves 2.
