Smoothie in a Bowl Take # 1

Oh how I love smoothies but they are even better in a bowl a big bowl of delicious goodness. I am obsessed with Robeks smoothie bowls but they can get pretty pricey, and when you’re on a budget that can add up quickly. I really wanted one today so I decided to try and make one this morning for breakfast. I was super excited about trying to create my own smoothie bowl… Well…. Let’s just say that was a bust.
I used 3 plums, 1 banana, ½ cup of oatmeal, 1 tbsp. of almond butter. I did not use any almond milk I wanted a thick smoothie. My smoothie bowl was very thick more like porridge not a smoothie. It did not taste like the ones at Robecks it had more of a tart taste with banana flavor. I would say the good thing about smoothie bowls you get more fruits and veggies in to your diet. I really doubt I would eat three plums and banana in one sitting but I did in my smoothie bowl.

Busy Tuesday

Today will be a very busy day for me. I will be at work most of the day, and since I am still half asleep or at least I feel half a sleep. I need to find a pick me up to get me going in the morning. I did sprints for my workout today and oh boy! I could barely do my last sprint but I did push myself. It was a pick me up for a bit, but I need a jolt! I know breakfast is a must but when you are press for time and about to run out the door. It can sometimes be very difficult to eat healthy when your rushing lucky for me I have a solution. While doing sprints I boiled an egg, I used my granola bars I made for snacks as a breakfast bar, and I had packed a nice big juicy nectarine. That’s how you make a quick breakfast healthy and easy.

They crumbled when I took them out of the pan I think they were to dry..

Right after work I half to head to school and finish registering for fall classes so I just may be there all day. I will pack some carrot granola as a snack to keep me fueled until dinner time. I am adding more seeds instead of nuts to my diet because they are very high in calcium and low in calories per serving. Being lactose intolerant does not mean you can’t get calcium, you just half to find alternatives to dairy.
