Vegan Weekened Part 1

Hello

I hope you had a nice weekend. How was the weather where you live? We had a triple digit weekend but that didn’t stop us from going about our usual routine which included some High Intensity Interval training in our garage (aka our home gym) At this point, the temp was 91 degrees so it made for a super intense workout.

The HIIT workout was only 15 minutes in duration but felt like 30 with the short rest (15 seconds) and hot temp. It was one of those workouts that made you feel proud when you finish. Like, how did I just do that?

Following the workout we took our dog on a walk in the heat. Are we crazy? Sometimes. When we got back I needed fuel ASAP so I made this smoothie which made me feel alive again.

Ingredients:

1 Frozen Banana

1 Fuji Apple

1 celery stalk

1 handful of spinach

16 ounces of Almond Milk

1 scoop of Sunwarrior Protein

Blend all ingredients and Enjoy.

Note: I made a larger than normal serving to share with my husband and son.

One more thing, its only on weekends that I have patience to use this many ingredients. During the week, its two ingredients max because its much more enjoyable when it’s simple right?

People sometimes say I’m crazy for working out in hot temps but I always feel looser and more efficient when its hot. Maybe not 100 degrees, but 80 always feels good. How do you feel about working out in the heat?

Tomorrow I’ll be back with what I made for dinner.

Have a great day!

Mango and Banana Smoothie

Hi

How is your Sunday going? We’re boiling over here. Yesterday was 101 degrees but today its suppose to be a little cooler, 97 degrees.

All I want is something cold so as soon as we got home from church I made this super frosty Mango and Banana smoothie. It was so refreshing. This is one of the easiest smoothies I’ve made.

Chocolate Frosty

Hey!

I have something very delicious to share with you. This might not sound good if you’re experiencing rain or snow right now but we are experiencing another California heat wave this week so when the kids got home from school I made this cold yummy smoothie. Here in CA we go from winter to summer from one week to the next.

Yummy Chocolate Smoothie

Hey Friends,

How was your day?

Today I was having a serious sweet tooth and craving my favorite two things; peanut butter and chocolate so instead of indulging in something I would later regret, I made this yummy-ness. (I know that’s not really a word)

Sun Warrior is my favorite protein. Its contains 15 grams of raw vegan protein.
