You, Me at SixPosted: May 25, 2011
Every night, I set my alarm for six AM, swearing that I’ll make it to the gym when I wake up.
Every morning, I hit snooze until seven AM, swearing that one day I’ll learn that I hate mornings. Looks like I’ll be squeezing in an evening workout tonight!
In my defense, who wants to be sweating through interval sprints when there are smoothies to be enjoyed?
In the mix:
- 1 depressingly small banana
- 1 heaping handful of organic spinach
- 1 scoop bourbon vanilla Tera’s Whey protein powder
- Splash of Almond Breeze
- 1 tablespoon flax
- 2 ice cubes
On top of the finished smoothie, I sprinkled a handful of Dr. Sears’ Zone Diet honey almond cereal. I bought it in high hopes that it would replicate Kashi’s honey almond flax cereal, but unfortunately the flakes were bland and light on texture.
At least the nutritional stats were great – high in protein and fiber (14 and 5 grams, respectively) and low in sugar (5 grams). If only it weren’t low in flavor as well!
A vegan maple breakfast sausage rounded out the meal. Making this batch, I added a teaspoon of olive oil to the recipe, which made them a bit more moist – closer in texture to a real sausage patty!
I also brewed the first cup of coffee to grace my apartment on a weekday morning. I usually opt for coffee at work, but our machine was broken yesterday – the horror! Since sipping on tea never gives me the same energy boost, I broke out the trusty single-cup coffee maker that saw me through college and brewed a cup of the good stuff!
Work calls! I can’t believe it’s already Wednesday – there’s still so much to do!
