Spinach and Berry Smoothie Recipe

I make this in my Vitamix. I usually drink at least once a week.

1 tsp. ground oatmeal
1 tsp. flax seed
2 heaping tsp. Vegan protein powder
3-4 tsp. flavored yogurt. Right now I’m using strawberry yogurt. It’s Greek.
2 handfuls of baby spinach

Fresh berries if you can find them!

I have used frozen berries in the past. I buy the bags at Target, they are less expensive than the grocery store and last twice as long.

Fill it up with OJ and make it a smoothie!

I’ll drink this when I feel a little run down and it helps me out. I also drink this before a run or when I get home from the gym.


14 Days!

Only a few more days until The Color Run! I’m doing pretty well with the training, but, I wanted to post something that wasn’t strictly running related.

I’ve been eating better over the past few months and I’ve noticed such a difference in how I actually feel and my energy levels.

Of course I have bad days just like anyone else, but, overall it’s been more good days than bad. It’s definitely helped me with my running as well as having energy at night for cooking dinner and not falling asleep at 7 p.m. on the couch.

I need to get my yoga mat out more starting this week. This is MY reminder to do that. I have a few things going on in the mornings this week where I cannot run, but, I will be doing yoga and then the elliptical to balance it out.
