I hope everyone had a peaceful and relaxing Holy Week.
My penance this year is to stick to my diet and exercise. I’ve crucified some of my fats already and hopefully my bones with resurrect soon (sorry for the puns).
One thing I’ve been consistent about is drinking my protein shake for breakfast. I’ve been drinking smoothies (recipe here) for over a month and I made a new recipe to change things up. It’s yummy and filling!
Banana Peanut Butter Protein Shake
1 whole frozen banana (peel the banana before freezing)
1 tbsp. peanut butter
2 tbsp. or 1 scoop (I used the scoop that came with the powder) whey powder protein, unsweetened vanilla or strawberry flavor
2 tbsp freshly ground flaxseeds
1 tbsp chia seeds
1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1/2 cup cold water
4-5 pcs. ice cubes (optional)
Step 1: Dump all the ingredients in the blender.
Tip: Jiggle the pitcher to pre-mix the ingredients. This will prevent the powder and ground flaxeeds from getting stuck in the bottom and going all over the pitcher when you pulse the blender.
Step 2: Blend all ingredients together until you achieve the desired consistency.
Step 3: Serve with a smile. 🙂
I’m traveling this week to a country where the food is going to be major. I’m hoping that I can still exercise in my hotel room and eat mindfully. Pray for me?
