Due to some serious lollygagging on the part of me and my parents this morning, my run didn’t happen. We did have a nice 45 minute walk before lunch. I supplemented this walk with a jaunt to my gate at the airport — if you’re familiar with the Atlanta airport you know that the distance from security to the C-gates is a decent walk.
Tom picked me up from the airport and we jetted off to Whole Foods for dinner (ala the salad and hot bars) and a few grocery essentials. Tom has also decided to try out the good old green smoothie. However, Tom’s recipe isn’t reasonable like Caitlin’s — instead, his green smoothie is more along the lines of V8 mixed with grass. His concoction tonight was about 2-2.5 cups of kale and about a cup of carrot juice. He’s much braver than me!
We also eyed a sweet smoothie take away cup with a little blender ball in it to keep your drink mixed up and fresh. However, it was without a price tag and we’ve learned that un-priced things at Whole Foods can be rather pricey. Anyone have a travel smoothie container you recommend?
I really want to get one soon so I can make fruit/veggie/protein smoothies to take to work for breakfast. Warm weather is on the way to DC and I know my oatmeal routine will probably be headed out as soon as temps in the 70s become normal.
I’ve read that the best way to make a smoothie stick is to add some protein powder. My sorority sister Ashley, of Healthy Happier Bear, is giving away a sample pack of Jay Robb protein powder goodies. I would love to get my hands on this — I think I may be one of the last people in the world to try it out! If you want to try and win some Jay Robb too, check out Ashley’s post on how to enter!
I’m off to watch Tom choke down the rest of his super green smoothie. Maybe soon I can show him how to make a real (aka: tasty) green smoothie!
