My workweek is off to a super healthy start!
I wanted to switch it up for breakfast today so I broke out the blender for the first time since July and made myself a “blueberry omega-3 power smoothie”.
In the blender, I combined:
- 1 frozen banana, sliced
- 1/2 cup plain non-fat Chobani
- 1/2 cup frozen blueberries
- 1 cup vanilla flaxseed milk
- 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed
- 1 tablespoon Bob’s Red Mill coconut flakes
- Squirt of honey
Since I just bought the flaxseed milk for the first time yesterday, I had to give it a try before I blended it up in the smoothie. It was delicious! It tasted a little like very vanilla soymilk. Next I have to try it in oatmeal 😉
I love using frozen bananas in smoothies because it makes them super thick! I find that when I use regular room-temperature bananas, the smoothie is much more watery and I can finish it off in about 5 minutes.
This one was so thick I had to eat it with a spoon!
Breakfast isn’t the only way I’m starting off my week on a healthy note. I’m also participating in a “workweek hustle” FitBit challenge with my sister and friend from college!
“Workweek Hustle is a challenge to see who can get the most steps between Monday and Friday. It runs from 12:00am Monday to 11:59pm Friday in the timezone of the person who created the challenge.”
I plan on parking farther away at school and walking around the house more rather than sitting. This morning instead of immediately sitting down to the computer to read blogs, I used my phone and paced around the apartment. I am so determined to win. Bring it on! 🙂
