Much Needed Smoothie

August 9, 2010 § 4 Comments

Phew!  It’s hot out there today!  My Monday started off wonderfully with a sweaty workout.  I think the 9 hours of sleep I got helped me out quite a bit :).  This morning I took the 6am Gravity class followed by 30 minutes of a spinning class.  It felt great to set a healthy tone for the week.

For breakfast I enjoyed a Vitamin Amy classic.  Oats!

My bowl of oats included:

  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
  • A splash of vanilla extract
  • Cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. Jif + 1 tsp. Peanut Butter & Co. cinnamon raisin swirl
  • A sprinkle of chopped walnuts

So good!

After I got out of work, I ran a couple errands around town and worked up quite the sweat, yikes!  I was also doing some fall clothes shopping which included trying on a few sweaters…not the best day to do that! I needed something cold and delicious when I got home.  A smoothie was in order!

Into the blender went:

  • Frozen strawberries
  • Frozen blueberries
  • 1 plum
  • A splash of grapefruit juice
  • A splash of H2O

This is an amazing smoothie!  I never use any added sugar, yogurt, milk, etc. to my smoothies.  I love the simplicity of fresh fruit and a tiny bit of 100% juice.  Very refreshing and nutritious!

Tonight, I am off to Lucy & Rory’s engagement party!  I am super excited to see everyone and celebrate such a wonderful couple.  And eat lots of delicious food :-D.

Question the afternoon:  What do you like in your smoothies?
