My mornings during the week are very habitual, alarm at 4:30 a.m., snooze several times, rise by 5:00ish. Regardless of what time I finally exit the bed, my workout has to be complete by 6:30 a.m. Then shower, make-up, hair, dress, juice, waffle, prompt Jackson to get his water, prompt Jackson to brush teeth, grab my lunch from fridge, prompt Jackson to put his shoes on, good-byes, out door by 7:35 a.m. Spilled peanut butter on my shirt and I'm screwed. That is why Sunday evening are spent ironing my clothes for the week and weeknights are used for packing my mid-morning meal, lunch and mid-afternoon meal.
Weekends offer a little more leeway and latitude for exploration. We did our workout a little later today and thus interrupted my normal meal routine. I was too late for meal two and too early for meal three. So I pulled a combo! I really wanted my juice but I also was craving that delectable berry smoothie.
I made the juice. A combination of kale, apple, lemon and carrots. I call it a ROGR. Rhonda's Original Green Recipe.
I then used this drink as the base for my smoothie. I added frozen berries, stevia and protein powder.
I blended this together and had quite possibly the best mid-morning meal I've ever had. I don't necessarily have time for this everyday, but it does offer a highly competitive alternative to oatmeal and gives me a bundle of fruit and veggie servings.
INSANITY UPDATE: Today was Pure Cardio. Nice wake up call. Happy Mother's Day to me!
