Smooth Idea

Why didn’t I ever think to do this before?


I was hungry this afternoon and knew I would be running after work, so I made myself a HUGE smoothie. (I also love this Blender Bottle I got from AmericasNutrition to sample – it’s a great size and has the little whisker ball so you can keep your smoothie mixed well!)

  • 2 cups almond milk (the rest of a container)
  • 1 Tbsp Nesquik
  • 1 cup frozen mixed berries
  • 3 cups spinach
  • 2 drops Vanilla NuNaturals Stevia

I knew I didn’t want to drink all of this before running because it would just be too much. So I had half before my run and drank the rest when I got back.


Best. idea. ever.

It also helped that dinner was leftovers tonight ;) Easy!


Leftover lentils and turkey sausage from last night – they reheated beautifully! Even Nick enjoyed it a second time.

He actually said – and I’m quoting – “I think I really like lentils”.

I replied, “Really? Well, they’re full of protein”.

“Hm”, he said. “Maybe that’s why I like them”.


You know what time it is – football! I’m watching Miami/Pitt right now until The Office!

Happy Thursday :)



  1. My husband loves lentils which always shocks me; maybe it is the protein! :)
