Ughhhh, the weight roller coaster! It's the WORST! & Somehow, I always find myself on it, especially after last month on theFIX aka our coast to coast eating tour! Luckily I spend a lot of time in a bikini now-a-days, so that's total motivation to get back in the shape I was a year ago (but keeping the curves this time! Side note: thoughts on doing that? Last time I was religious to yoga I lost my butt, I love my giant booty! I need to add some weights and lungs in to keep it, huh?). To get into my kick again, I start my day with a healthy and protein packed breakfast! I introduce to you: the Green Monster Smoothie! It's actually quite delicious, well, usually. Sometimes it takes a couple sips to enjoy it (hence the funny faces) but once you get used to it, you may be hooked! It can be made a variation of ways, but here is my go-t0 after my workout (I used to hate running, then Marshall kept saying "you should run you should run" so then I fell in love with it and now I can hardly run because I apparently have the "Hanes women" curse and my knees hurt. Wah. So, it's usually the elliptical and now back to yoga for me! Some more smoothie & juice recipes on my Pinterest! Why's it so easy to gain this ish and always hard to lose it? BEER WHY MUST YOU DO THIS TO ME? I thought we were friends....
Green Monster Smoothie
-1/2 cup Vanilla 0% greek yogurt
-1 cup coconut milk (or almond, or dairy milk)
-2 cups ice
-3 cups spinach (more or less)
Combine all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth. Then, hopefully enjoy. If you don't, don't blame me. But maybe try adding in things (like blueberries!) and mixing it up! It's a real easy and filling breakfast, but cleaning the blender is a beotch.
