Mornings At Home

Happy Friday!  After an over indulgent week my body craves something healthy, but nourishing.  I’ve started whipping up these Raspberry Avocado Cacao smoothies a few times a week and have noticed a huge difference in my digestion.  I adapted the recipe from nutritionist and wellness expert Kelly LeVeque.  Kelly suggests that your smoothie contain: 1 serving of Protein (I used vanilla protein powder here) +  1 serving of Fiber (I used chia seeds) + Greens (spinach) + 1/4 cup of Fructose (raspberries) + 2 tablespoons of Fat (avocado) + Liquid (almond milk) + Super Food (cacao.)  I am constantly referencing Kelly’s site for guidance and ideas in addition to my Food Pinterest board which I update weekly!  These chia chicken tenders are super easy to make and this brussels sprout salad is so light and refreshing for lunch.  After my morning smoothie I like to get my heart rate up and I’ll either do FlyBarre, Flex Pilates, or go for a run (I try and do intervals on the treadmill.)  I notice a major difference in my mood when I work out in the morning. I’m always looking to try something new so I would love to hear!

    I read something interesting recently where a nutritionist and trainer suggested his client eat every 3 hours to keep their metabolism from slowing down. Also: I love running on the treadmill especially since it’s so hot outside…when I don’t have access to the treadmill I’ll walk to the local rec center for a swim workout and back–a low-impact exercise with a lot of results!

    I like chia seeds mixing with my shakes. I also put some chia seeds in pan cakes and remove the egg. Try it as well.
