Smoothie in a bowl –> Lunch in a bowl!
Matt and I plopped around all morning (actually I got some hard work done but relaxed too 🙂 ). In fact, we are STILL in our PJs after lunch for the second day in a row!!!!!!!!! Something about knowing you’re not going to leave the house means you don’t have to waste anytime getting showered + dressed. But I think it also is because we’re going on a walk/run/gym visit soon 🙂
When debating what to have for lunch, I pulled out a leftover sweet potato, spinach and yogurt. I was going to make a spinach salad with yogurt on the side, but thinking about a possible run with a salad in my stomach was NOT appealing!
So I got the bright idea to blend my salad up in an easier-to-digest form.
SO VERY IMPRESSED with the Vita-mix capability! I put ALMONDS in this smoothie and there was not a lump to be found!
In my lunch-in-a-bowl:
- 1/2 a tiny sweet potato (cooked)
- Big handful of spinach
- 2 kale leaves (Vita-mix had no trouble with the kale unlike my blender!)
- 1 tiny banana
- ~1 cup vanilla soy milk
- Sprinkling of chia seeds
- ~1/2 a cup greek yogurt
- 1/2 packet Chocolate Amazing Meal
- ~6 almonds
I felt a little unbalanced eating this for lunch because it would have made such a typical breakfast, but when I considered the ingredients, it was all the workings of a good salad!!
Cinnamon Mix My Granola on top!
Cali bowls are so good for smoothies and soups thanks to that inner lip!
I added a little PB + J because it’s just soooo goooood.
Our gym is open and 2.2. miles away so we’re going to walk there. Or run if the streets are clear enough. Who knows, but as soon as this lunch digests we’re getting outta here!
