I beat my time today! I did 3.4 miles in 27:46 minutes. I was happy with myself 🙂 After my run, I made a Greek yogurt parfait with some superfood blends that Linwood sent me to try! I usually top my yogurt or smoothies with ground flaxseed and almond flour and so this was like two in one!
They sent me two blends! The first one has Ground Flaxseed, Almond, Brazil Nuts, Walnuts and Q10. The second one has Ground Flaxseed, Cocoa, Strawberries and Blueberries. I love the way these taste! I bet they would be amazing mixed with honey and some kind of a nut butter baked in the oven! I’m going to try that soon.
These blends have so many healthy benefits that our bodies crave like: omega 3’s (healthy brain & heart), dietary fiber (helps in digestion, cholesterol levels, maintaining body weight, and blood sugar levels), iron (supports oxygen transport and reproduction of red blood cells), magnesium (supports ones, muscles, and nerve function and metabolism energy), vitamin b1 (keeps metabolism and heart healthy functioning), and zinc, selenium (helps immune system and aids in cell & tissue protection from oxidative damage).
I mixed my Greek Yogurt with honey, 1 tsp white vanilla extract, lemon, and a packet of Stevia for flavor. I added a layer of yogurt to the bottom of the cup, topped it with a layer of one of the superfood blends, another layer of yogurt, another superfood blend, yogurt, and then mixed fruit!
This was one of the best post workout fuels I have ever had! It had carbs, protein, fats, and it was incredibly filling! This would make a great breakfast too. If you are vegan or dairy free, replace the yogurt with a coconut milk yogurt!
You can use this blend in smoothies, baking, cereal, oatmeal, and more!
