GNC Total Lean 25 PB shake

This bad boy is packed with 30g of protein! And it is delicious!

What you’ll need…

4-5 ice cubes

1 cup Almond Breeze unsweetened milk

2 scoops GNC Total Lean 25 – Rich Chocolate

2 tbsp PB2 powdered peanut butter

2-3 Truvia packets

Dash of cinnamon

I like to mix everything but 2 Truvia packets, blend well then add the other two packets once in my cup.

Blend well

Cinnamon has several suggested health benefits…

  1. May lower bad cholesterol (LDL)
  2. Has antifungal properties
  3. Has anti-clotting effect on blood.
  4. Natural remedy for eliminating migraines/headaches.
  5. Can helps stabilize blood sugar (which is good for weight loss)

IMPORTANT: It can be toxic in large doses. So just a dash or shake in your coffee/tea or in this case, a smoothie/shake will be plenty enough. 

Also, the PB 2 powdered peanut butter product is AMAZING. I ordered mine from amazon.com and this is my first time using it. The taste is amazing and using it in smoothies is a great way to eliminate the extra calories and fat regular PB has.

This was my post run fuel, even though I only ran 2 miles. More time constraints…ugh!!! But I pushed myself and tried to make it a worthwhile run.

I should’ve gone for negative splits…oh well. 8:24 overall pace.

Sophie has graduated to a new booster (carseat) !! She has also just been accepted into a preschool program here in SD. We are very excited about that!!

Big girl!

Make Ahead Breakfast…

I was inspired by another blogger after she posted an egg casserole that she makes for breakfasts. I’ve been making a similar breakfast casserole for years now and it’s an absolute fav of mine. It’s so easy to make & re-heat. It’s great for all three meals and even snacks.

So I thought I would share with my readers. I like to have a few pre-made meals/snacks for during the day. It takes the guess work out of eating healthy.

Egg & Spinach breakfast casserole:

Finished product.

What I used:

8×8 baking dish

TJ Olive Oil spray

Italian seasoning

Mild cheddar TJ cheese stick (shredded myself)

4 eggs

2 tbsp chopped ham

1tbsp TJ chia seeds

2-3 handfuls TJ baby spinach

Salt/pepper to taste

Generously coat pan with spray and add spinach.

Beat 4 eggs, mix in everything else.

Pour over spinach.

Oven – 400*, Bake for 25 minutes. Makes about 9 servings.

Nutritional Information: (roughly) 1 small square: 56 calories, 4g fat, 5g protein.

I usually eat 2 squares, because they are kind of thin. They are so good and make great snacks too! And it’s totally customizable, add any veggie or meat you want. Leave out the cheese, etc. Personally, I think some small amount of meat/cheese helps hold it together. Enjoy!

I entered in to the Lululemon world today! EEK!!!! I’ve been contemplating a purchase for a while now and finally bought something a few days ago.

Sophie says “hi”…

Silly girl.

Ok, so are you a Lulu wearer?
