I couldn’t sit still this morning and maybe it was the three cups of coffee I had. But I needed to get up and do something, so I made a quick breakfast and got ready for a workout. My breakfast was half a whole wheat bagel with cream cheese, 3 egg white + 1 egg mozzarella scramble, and avocado slices.
I started my workout with a one mile walk, a quick stretch, followed by an eight mile run, and then did 10 minutes of stair sprinting. My apartment complex has huge stairs that are perfect for sprinting. If you don’t have a gym, just find a stairway to climb.
After my workout, I showered off and then whipped up a delicious protein smoothie.
It’s hard to make smoothies super sweet without adding globs of sugar or fruit juice. The secret to cutting out sugar and fruit juice is to add a drink mix. I use the 100% natural True drink mixes for flavor.
This smoothie had 1 large banana, 4 cups water, 4 cups ice, 1 serving genisoy protein, and 1 packet of True drink mix.
Blend on high for one minutes!
While the smoothie was blending, I stole some goldfish 😉 Okay, I stole a lot of goldfish.
This smoothie recipe makes 7-8 cups. It’s a little over 200 calories with 25 grams of protein for the entire thing. Sometimes instead of the drink mix, I use chocolate cocoa powder for dessert.
