Today I went for a late run and might have over did it since I’m still not completely well, but feeling much better. It was such another gorgeous day with the heat that I love so dearly. I can’t believe we’re really headed towards winter. It was so nice today I caught myself many times closing my eyes just to feel the breeze. Closing my eyes while driving, yep, and closing my eyes while running. So, I got home and took the dogs for a long walk at the park and then I went for a run. It was a little more than 4 mile kind of day. Really good. Ran for a full 30 minutes before I had to stop briefly. Right before I went I had a couple spoonfuls of peanut butter. It really works. And can I just say, I never liked peanut butter my entire life(or jelly for that matter), until I began buying real peanut butter a few years ago. The peanut butter I’m eating now is so unbelievably good it makes my tongue tingle and I could imagine maybe having a sandwich with it. I’ve never had a peanut butter that tastes that good. In the past I’d rather starve than have a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.
Yes, I know what your thinking. Green and yellow and navy blue???? why??!! I know, it’s kinda hard on the eyes, but this was one of the only cups that are clean right now. And, I’m sure my husband can appreciate this post. Go Chargers!!
So, I’m tired and I need something with some energy so I can run to the store and make dinner. These green smoothie things are scrumdiddlyumptious! I always throw in whatever, I don’t measure things because I’ve been doing it for so long, but this is also a repost. I’ve had this before and probably will continue to.
Scrumdiddlyumptious Green Smoothie
Into a blender throw:
- Some ice
- 1 heaping spoonful of flax seeds (1 Tablespoon or so)
- 2 bananas
- 2 huge handfuls of spinach
- 1 cup or so of vanilla almond milk (my fav) but you can use whatever milk you like
Enjoy! This makes about 2 average cups. 2 – 10 oz. cups, yum, yum, yum.
