plant fusion

rise and shine!
have you already sweat this morning?
i came home last night and completed jillian michael's 30 day shred - day 1
with 10 lbs weights (recommended 3-5lbs)
and that was a really bad idea
i had to put them down and just complete the moves without the weights
the 30 day shred is a lot of compound moves and completed very fast - so it's pretty aerobic

so instead of doing the 30 day shred this morning

i did just dance on the wii 

and on lunch today i'm heading to target to pick appropriate weights

so i can come home and suffer for 20 minutes.

i took "before" pictures last night as well (still need bill's help to do some measurements tonight)

but will wait and share both the "before and after"  after the 30 days

i DO want to share with you-

my new favorite thing:
plant fusion protein powder

Nutrition Facts

and i can tell you from the past couple of mornings

it is delicious!

i ordered the vanilla bean flavor off of amazon

i had originally tried the chocolate flavor that i found in my local health food store

but it's much cheaper through amazon

the vanilla bean basically makes every smoothie combination taste like a milkshake or cake

it is sweetened with stevia - and is actually really sweet tasting - which some might not like

i found that mixing it with fruit juice is a little too sweet

my favorite combination right now is the following:

1 scoop vanilla bean protein powder
1 cup vanilla unsweetened almond milk
1 banana (you could freeze for added creaminess)
2T natural peanut butter
7-9 ice cubes
2 handfuls of spinach
and it fills my 32 ounce glass
AND it tastes like a  a peanut butter banana milkshake

this is a hearty combination - weighing in at 474 calories

but packs a substantial health punch and would be a great meal replacement (i had mine for breakfast after working out)
what's your favorite smoothie recipe?
