Happy Monday and Happy Valentine's Day everyone!!! We don't do anything big for Valentine's Day but I make sure to leave a little something out for my kids at the breakfast table in the morning and we usually have a fun dinner, too. No big deal, just a little bit of extra love. Do you have any big plans? Did you celebrate this past weekend?
So...no news on the ankle. It still hurts. This week I am going to see a doctor to see if it needs to be amputated or replaced. Okay, I am being dramatic. But I finally came to the realization that I am NOT a doctor, nor do I play one on TV. I need a professional opinion. Why is it so hard to ask for help sometimes?
Anyway, I am going to share with you today my favorite breakfast. It's a great way to refuel after a run or fuel yourself for the day. Here it is: Chocolate Banana Peanut Butter Smoothie!
It's not new or novel or earth shattering but it's delicious and creamy and yummy and keeps me full all morning long. I love that.
Chocolate Banana Peanut Butter Smoothie
1 cup fat free soymilk
3 oz vanilla greek yogurt (about 1/2 of a small yogurt container, you can add the whole container if you like it super creamy)
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
1 heaping tablespoon natural peanut butter
1 frozen banana
Blend it all up. Add 1-2 cups of ice, blend again. Easy!!!! You can also add a scoop of protein powder for even more staying power. I love how it fills me up and keeps me full until lunchtime. No more 10am snacking at work.
I hope you all have a fabulous week. It was 80 degrees here this weekend (yes, my grass is that green right now. I love it) but it's supposed to rain rain rain this week. Stay tuned for a super fun giveaway I am going to be posting on my blog this week!! You don't want to miss it. Thanks for stopping by today!
