We did it!!!
Matt tried to talk us out of it, but we went running in the dark, cold….rain?! I’m not sure if it was raining, but I was all wet when we returned, so I guess it was!! We did 5.3 miles at a pretty good pace (~8:45-55)
Home, shower….I’m in a bit of a rush today because Victoria and I are meeting at 8:30 for coffee and studying before our 11:30 Metabolism exam.
What a perfect day for a RUSH BOWL!
After seeing my SIABs (smoothie in a bowl) topped with granola, I got an email from Nicole at Rush Bowls asking if I wanted to try out their own versions of SIABs. What’s cool is these are pre-made and frozen so there is no blender to dirty, and it comes WITH granola!! I think it was made just for me!
The company is based in Boulder, CO and has a whole store with tons of different freshly made smoothie bowl flavors. Ashley got to go to a complete tasting because she lives nearby! It looked amazing!! But there are 4 Rush bowls that are packaged for retail. Currently they are only available at Whole Foods (which we do not have here in Charlotte 🙁 ) but I am working to TRY to get these into my Open Sky store. CROSS YOUR FINGERS (and if you’re interested, please say so so they can gauge the interest).
I chose the Power Bowl to start with because I need the brain food for my exam and some staying power with a little extra protein. This bowl is made with organic vanilla soy milk, bananas, raspberries, blueberries, whey protein, OATS and fat-free frozen yogurt. I wish it was without the frozen yogurt because that makes the ingredient list less appealing, but the fruit + milk are the bulk of it at least. The nutritionals for this bowl are : 330 calories (the highest of them), 18g protein, 9g fiber, 20% calcium and 35% vitamin C. Sounds perfect to me!
30 seconds in the microwave:
The instructions are printed on the bowl lid of how to thaw. You can either microwave or let it sit out for a while.
Finished off with a blob of peanut butter!
Totally LOVED the bowl!!! Basically it was just like my SIAB so therefore it was perfect 🙂
Served with hot tea for warmth. Coffee is coming!
Cannot wait to try the other 3 flavors!
Gotta run – in a rush!
