Hello! How’s it going with ya? Good? I hope so!
So I’m feeling kind of emotional right now, but on the bright side I had a really great yoga practice last night. Kaitlyn joined me, so that made things even more fun than usual. And, the room was extra hot so I was pretty sweaty by the end. I needed a good sweat detox and a little zen in my life yesterday.
So this was the perfect breakfast for the first day of October: pumpkin pie smoothie! Please ignore the fact that this looks like baby poo because it is one of my new favorite smoothie bowl staples. All I did was mix 1 cup of pumpkin, a frozen banana, coconut water, almond butter, almond milk, spinach, chia seeds, flax meal, pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon and vanilla protein powder in the blender!
I had one of my only exams of the semester this morning, and since I got out early I took a nice little walk to get some kombucha at the local organic food store. It was a nice reward!
Do you follow Purelytwins? They are plantain fanatics and may or may not have converted me. On the bottom right is a plantain muffin, made by using their plantain bread recipe. I actually had four little muffins. Apple and small salad on the side!
I am addicted to this snack. It’s just so easy, and on days like Tuesday when I am very busy with little food options since I have to lug my lunch around, I like to get a bunch of calories and healthy fats in at once, so this is my go-to (I follow it with a few spoonfuls of PB too! hehe)
I had dinner so, so late last night after yoga and my meetings, and I forgot to take a picture of the first half, which was eggs. I was craving sweet potato fries earlier in the day, and when I got home my roommate had made herself some for dinner. I took that as a sign to make some of my own.
Overall my day went pretty fast. I can’t believe that it’s already October. At this rate, it’s going to be summer again in no time (hopefully not THAT quick! – I wanna enjoy this season).
Make your day great!
Question of the Day:
Do you like plantains? What do you make with them?
